The Story

Brooklyn is a sweet, happy, outgoing 2 1/2 year old who has just been diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma cancer that has spread to her bones and bone marrow. She will need very aggressive treatment and the medical bills will be high. She is currently in the hospital with her parents at her side. Please help support the Ekman family during this very difficult time. Thank you

Brooklyn hasn't been able to leave the hospital since she was diagnosed and started treatment. Her beautiful blond hair had to be shaved because the hair loss was bothering her. Her white blood cell count is still low and she is still trying to fight a virus. She doesn't want to eat because the chemo gave her sores in her mouth that make eating/swallowing very painful. Her feeding tubes have come out several times so they will give her IV nutrition for a short while to give her a break from the feeding tube insertions. Please follow Brooklyn's Battle on Facebook for updates. Thank you for your love and support! https://www.facebook.com/brooklynekman/

A Facebook page has been set up for updates. https://www.facebook.com/brooklynekman/?pnref=story

"Hi everyone! Matt and Amanda have asked me to head up this page for them. They wish they could answer and talk to each of you that have called or texted, but it's all very overwhelming right now. I will be positing updates and information about Brooklyn's progress as we get it here on this page, so come and visit often. You can also leave them comments and all your love on here as well. They will be checking in when they have time!

They want to thank each and every one of you for the prayers that they know have been said for them. They feel your love. This is going to be a long tough journey, but we are all trying to have as much Faith as we can that Brooklyn can beat this!! She is a FIRECRACKER if you know her, and is so strong willed that we know she will get thru this!" ~~Kimberly~~

2/27/2017 Update from Amanda. They are currently at the hospital. The doctors will check Brooklyn's marrow today. We need to start chemo ASAP. She has been staying so sweet and tells all the nurses and doctor "thank you" even after they've been poking her.
