We got a call from Caroline's doctor late this afternoon, and they reported that the CT Scan showed "significant" reduction in the shape and size of the tumor. They also noticed an increase in calcification within her tumor, which indicates more dead cancer cells. This is all good news!
Surgery to remove the tumor is scheduled for April 27th.
After surgery, Caroline will have approximately 9-12 months of treatment left, which includes: months of inpatient hospital stays, various scans, 2 rounds of high-dose chemo, 2 stem cell transplants, radiation, immunotherapy and a clinical trial.
Today was also extra special because Caroline was able to play in the gorgeous TN weather with Molly and Jamison for a few hours! We were so happy our families could be together outside of the hospital.
We are very grateful for all your support to date...please keep the prayers coming for the long, tough road ahead.
Celebrating the wins,
The Lantz Family
In 2017, Caroline was diagnosed with Stage IV, High-Risk Neuroblastoma: an aggressive, solid-tumor cancer that spread throughout almost all of her body, including her bone marrow. She completed a 2-year clinical trial (called DFMO) in April 2021, and relapsed in April 2022. She is currently a patient at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN; this blog documents her journey.
