On February 29, 2016 when we arrived at Children's Hospital of Orange County. Nothing could have prepared us for the news we were about to receive on February 30, 2016; Ezra was diagnosed with stage 3b Burkitt Lymphoma. The definition, according to WEBMD.com for Burkitt Lymphoma -Burkitt lymphoma (http://www.webmd.com/cancer/lymphoma/burkitt-lymphoma-prognosis-diagnosis-treatments
) is a form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (http://www.webmd.com/cancer/lymphoma/understanding-hodgkins-disease-basic-information
) in which cancer (http://www.webmd.com/cancer/
) starts in immune cells called B-cells. Recognized as the fastest growing human tumor, Burkitt lymphoma is associated with impaired immunity and is rapidly fatal if left untreated. However, intensive chemotherapy (http://www.webmd.com/cancer/questions-answers-chemotherapy
) can achieve long-term survival in more than half the people with Burkitt lymphoma. Our 4 year old baby has cancer, I didnt know the many different ways my heart could hurt, cry and break.
