My Story

Navy is 5. She loves swimming, playing with cousins, and going to school. She is spunky, observant and kind. And she has Neuroblastoma. In the past 3 years, she has gone through: 6 rounds of week-long inpatient chemotherapies Stem cell harvesting 1 major surgery A week isolated in bed for internal radiation 1 month-long stem cell transplant 12 days of radiation 18 week-long Immunotherapy rounds Plentiful ER visits and blood transfusions Tens of thousands of miles travelled for treatment and monitoring Navy is not alone in fighting cancer. Worldwide, a child is diagnosed with cancer every 3 minutes. And in the US, more than 1 million people will get cancer this year. I share our story to help increase awareness. In knowing that awareness->more funding->more research->a cure! The current treatments have been increasingly getting better over time, but we still have a LONG way to go. Too many kids are going through awful treatments with terrible side effects to see little results. We have been the grateful recipient of the past research results and I hope that what Navy goes through will help another child or adult suffer less.
