The Story

5 month old Caiden has recently been diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Today, March 20th, he had 3 biopsies...one on his liver and both of his hips.  It will be a few days to a week before his parents are told what stage it is.  What they do know is that it is very aggressive.

Last Wednesday, his mom, Ariana Hill, noticed his eye was red and a bit swollen.  Just 2 days later, she and her fiance, Eric Falcon, were given the news that their baby boy had cancer.  He has many tumors on his liver, head, jaw and eyes. Tomorrow, Caiden will begin his first chemotherapy treatment.

Caiden is at Boston Children's Hospital and will be calling the Oncology unit home for the next few months.  After that, he and his family will travel back and forth for shorter stays and treatments.

Ariana will be taking a leave from her job to stay with Caiden and Eric will commute back and forth from their home in Leominster.  The medical bills, along with parking, food and maintaining their home are already adding up quickly.  We, their family, will be hosting a auction fundraiser in the coming weeks.  We are asking for gift cards, gift baskets, items to complete a basket and cash donations to go towards the auction and their bills.

Cash donations can be made directly on this site.  Donations of cards, gift cards, baskets and raffle items can be mailed to: Caiden Falcon, c/o Heidi Voulgaris, 37 11th Avenue, Haverhill, MA 01830

Most importantly, we ask for healing thoughts and prayers.

Tonight is the 5th and last day of this chemo round. Caiden should be going home to rest for a few weeks before starting another 5 day round of chemo. The tumors in his face have shrunk. As predicted, the scans on Friday showed that the cancer is throughout his body. This was not a surprise. 

On behalf of his family, thank you so much for your prayers, words of encouragement and donations. 

Please continue to share this little guys story.

This evening Caiden had day one of five chemo treatments. He will be needing surgery, radiation, a stem cell transplant and antibody therapy. When he has the surgery they will also remove his pic line and replace it with a port. 

His biopsies revealed that the cancer has gone into his bones. Please continue to send healing thoughts and energies.
