My Story

On June 12, I went to the doctor to find out why I had been having pain in my hip. The doctor felt something in my abdomen and I had to have a CT scan. They found a tumor. Two days later I had surgery but they couldn't take out the tumor. They told me I have neuroblastoma cancer. I had other tests and they said the cancer was only in the tumor. I have to have a lot of chemotherapy and surgery and radiation and other stuff too. Thanks for praying for me.

Sorry to hear about the pain. Not sure where it is, but sometimes just stopping steroids instead of the wean can cause pain. Wish I'd known he needed to be off them. Read more

Obi was feeling tired this morning probably due to a night of pain. He had his steroid stopped yesterday but that shouldn't have caused pain that quickly. He is getting ... Read more
