James' Story

- taken from Hope for James -

James was three years old when he was diagnosed with Stage IV  Neuroblastoma.  He went through nine rounds of chemo, stem cell harvesting and transplant, surgery to remove his tumor, radiation on twelve different locations, a clinical trial called CH 14-18, countless blood transfusions.  His first treatment lasted about 1 1/2 years. December 2011 he was declared in remission.  Two years later, the cancer came back and he bravely endured an aggressive treatment called MIGB radiation therapy in February 2014. 

 

UPDATE:  October 2018  current treatment was not working and tumors in skull and chest increased in size. A biopsy will be done on one of the tumors to see if there is targeted treatment available.
