Carson was your average 1 1/2 year old until the first of April 2020. His eye had swelled up and originally we thought Pink Eye as he had just discovered how to stick his hands in his diaper. Anyway we were prescribed pink-eye drops. Over the course of 48 hours his eye had swollen so much it was out of the socket and out of place. We took him to Lancaster General ER. From there we were sent by ambulance to Hershey Medical Center ER. We spent 5 days in the hospital getting test after test and finally the diagnosis of Neuroblastoma was given. We were absolutely heart broken by this news, but we have done our best to take it in stride.
So far Carson has been through 6 rounds of chemo, 5 rounds of immunotherapy (5 more to go), tumor resection surgery for 12 hours, a tandem stem cell transplant, and he was on 6 months worth of clinical trial chemo. So far he has had partial response and with 5 more rounds of immunotherapy we are hoping to rid him of this Cancer.
Thank you so much for reading about our kiddo. We as a family appreciate every bit of love and support you send our way.
