Trevor’s Story

Trevor is a caring little boy who is fighting a hard battle against a rare form of cancer, Neuroblastoma. Trevor has decided to start a non-profit organization to help other families that find themselves battling childhood cancer (www.trevorstreasures.org). Please send an email to slhn2010@gmail.com if you would like more information.

After 2 months of the unknown, traveling from specialist to specialist Trevor was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. His symptoms were leg pain and low grade fever, yes for two straight months. By the time he was diagnosed, the cancer, which started as a tumor on his adrenal gland, had spread into his bone and marrow, making it stage 4.

The news came as an absolute nightmare, but started our journey of what we know will cure Trevor's cancer and mold the way for his long life as a man on a mission to help others in similar situations. Trevor's hunger for knowledge and his caring spirit will carry him through so that he can help others that one day find out that they or their children have cancer.

2 years ago this very moment...

2 years ago this very moment, my strong brave boy received his wings.  He went on to a higher place where I know deep in my heart he is continuing his fight against childhood cancer.  Take a look at the recent headlines.  I know Trevor has a lot to do with this as you can tell by the two articles that appear here.  http://wtop.com/tag/neuroblastoma/  As Brandon (Dad #2) and I sat last night and watched the raw footage of Trevor's Truth365 interview, Trevor's smile brought me hope.  We then went out and lit up his beautiful tree.  Trevor's mission was very clear.  "Never Back Down" and cure this awful disease so that it does not hurt any more children.  Trevor never gave up, and he is still up there to this day working for a cure.  Not for himself, but for all of the other children that may one day be faced with cancer.  Trevor, I am so proud of you and not a day goes by that I don't cherish that beautiful smile of yours and long to hold you in my arms.  I will be watching for you tonight and I know when I look up into the sky you will be there shining bright, that flickering star that I know is you waving and letting me know that you are doing well and cancer-free, watching down on all of us.  I love you buddy, with all my heart.   My strong, brave boy.  love, M<3M

Hi Shannon,
I join with you in honoring Trevor. I also honor my son, Jason, who was stricken with cancer at age 25 and died 7 months later. It is comforting to know that they are cancer free and to also know that we will see them again. Until then, we will continue the fight against cancer with the hope that many children and young adults will live long, cancer free happy lives! God bless you and your family.

It is hard to believe it has been two years since Trevor gained his wings. He has touched so many lives and continues to do so. He was an amazing young man with an amazing mother. Thank you for your post and a moment to reflect on the strength of your strong brave boy.

Trevor will always be an inspiration to others young and old. Every school year I always share with my new classes a special gift he gave me. The blue octopus paper weight is a reminder everyday on my desk to never give up. Trevor, you will always hold a special place in my heart.

Shannon,

I know we didnt know each other very well but I want you to know that I carry Trevor with me everywhere I go. I love that you feel his presence and that you know Trevor is smiling down on you and your family. He will never be forgotten and will always be an inspiration to all he touched in his short life here on earth. Until you get to see your sweet boy again I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
