childhood cancer

‘She knew something was wrong with her best friend. Her brother was now a quiet, sick little boy. He never wanted to play.’: Sister dotes on her once ‘lively, energetic’ little brother now suffering from childhood cancer

“My 4 year-year-old watched a dozen doctors throw a mask over his face while he laid there helplessly. She was by his side in the bathroom while he got sick. She stuck by him, always takes care of him. Vomiting between play sessions. Waking up to throw up. Standing by her brother’s side, rubbing his back while he gets sick.”

‘He had a really rough go. Joe is our youngest child. Neuroblastoma is a really crappy cancer to have.’: Mom says her son is ‘doing beautifully’ after battling stage 4 neuroblastoma

“‘I’m going to play soccer and baseball in the fall,’ little Joe said, now in post-treatment. I still believed childhood cancer was rare. I even believed the kids who did get cancer would be fine, assuming they were treated at the best hospitals and didn’t have any unusual complications. I didn’t believe kids like mine could get cancer. It wasn’t until I was officially a ‘cancer mom,’ that I would understand.”

‘Logan went to Heaven, but he’s okay and is ALWAYS with us.’ My 2-year-old yelled, ‘NO! I want Lo Lo to stay here!’ His peaceful face let me know, ‘I’m free, I am OKAY Mom, like you said I would be.’

“When I played back that video CLEAR as DAY, a woman with an accent said, ‘He loves you very much,’ in the most peaceful and comforting tone! It sent chills down my spine. There was no noise in our house, the TV off, no one was speaking at all, yet this voice was clearly talking to us.”

‘A strong woman whispered, ‘This child was made for YOU. You are the only mother for her. She is going to be your greatest pride.’ These words broke me. I was scared. I didn’t know if I believed her.’

‘We were given the all clear and were starting to live our lives! Then one night, my husband found a lump in his neck. I felt so extremely sick. I was throwing up. That’s when my husband suggested, ‘I think you should take a pregnancy test.’ ‘There is no way,’ I told him.”
