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.

It's been a busy 2.5 weeks at home for Caroline! The first few days of side effects from the treatment were ROUGH and hit Caroline really hard. She ended up getting an NG tube to assist with taking medication. She also started to lose a lot of hair over the past few days, and asked us to shave her head. So many changes!
Caroline has been able to go to school most of last week, and all this week. After school, she has been going fishing with her brother and really loves it. Cycle 2 is scheduled to begin Monday (5/16)...we will post an update from the hospital.
Thank you for the constant outpouring of love, support and prayers; we are so grateful you all are helping us walk through this again.
