My Story

Dear Family and Friends,

Welcome to Waseem's webpage. I (his mother) will be posting new information about his condition during his hospitalizations and days ahead.

We are very blessed to have such wonderful family and friends in our lives who love and care for Waseem. This website is dedicated to all of you.

Love,

The Syed Family



Waseem's Journey

Waseem is a 3-year-old boy from Indiana/>/> who was diagnosed with stage IV neuroblastoma (cancer) on September 10, 2006. Since then, it was predicted that he would have to undergo 6 sessions of chemotherapy with stem cell harvest after the second session, then radiation and then a stem cell transplant.

The days leading up to the diagnosis were extremely hard on his body and spirit and they continue to be difficult, but there are times when we see glimpses of the healthy and happy Waseem on his good days. We will try to document his changing condition every day until his cancer is in remission, inshallah (God willing).

Thank you for taking this journey with us,

Love,

The Syed Family
