When we took Henry to the pediatrician on Thursday morning 5/4/17, we never imagined we'd be moving him into a room on the Oncology floor 48 hours later. His CT scans show what appears to be a large cancerous tumor near his liver, above his kidney. The doctors have told us it is stage four neuroblastoma. We will have to pursue aggressive treatment, including surgery, chemotherapy, bone marrow transplants, and radiation, as his condition is advanced and has already moved to other areas in his body, including in his bone marrow.
Please continue to pray for our boy, us, and our other children as we process and move forward into this thoroughly unexpected journey. We are leaning on your prayers as we are understandably overwhelmed.
God gave us 2 Thessalonians 3:16 yesterday on a t-shirt that was given to Hank: "Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every situation. The Lord be with you."
