CT Scan Update - Surgery Date

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

  11. Dr. Robert Morse has had great success helping those with tumors/cancer through the diet. He has many videos on YouTube about many health issues. What you are eating can play a huge role in beating this for good. Prayers to you!
