The Story

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."

Dave, the kids, and I are so moved by the outpouring of love y'all have shown our family, most recently with the gifts sent via our Amazon wish lists. Thank you, thank you, thank you. They are pouring in. We try to send personal thanks in some way, but we are having a hard time keeping up. Please know how much this helps our family. Henry needs so much encouragement throughout the less pleasant aspects of his treatment (taking yucky oral meds, getting his finger poked, going for endless appointments, etc), and it is so helpful to have our "stash" of prizes to help him (and us) through each step. You all have really blessed us all. The older kids love the attention you have shown them, as well. Thank you for helping our entire family TANK CANCER!

I know that so many of you are praying for us, and we are forever grateful.

After reviewing the list of little toys and gifts for Henry, a friend asked about some ways that they could care for our other 3 kids. They suggested that I create a wish list for them as well. Here is the link for "Help the Bigz Tank Cancer" http://a.co/8zTSZ74

Please know that we are not expecting anyone to buy us anything, or feel pressure in any way to contribute. We only ask for your continued prayers. Yet, we are blessed to know that people care so much for our little family.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort. - 2 Corinthians 1:3-7
