Home and Resting

Caroline was discharged Saturday afternoon, and is now home resting and recovering from Round 1 (of 6) of Immunotherapy.  She should start to feel a little better as each day passes.  She will receive a shot daily for the next 5 days, in addition to taking a daily pill for the next 2 weeks (both of which are still considered part of this 1st round of Immuotherapy).  Caroline will meet with her Vandy team on Friday for a clinic check-up and labs.

For those that want to understand more about general Immunotherapy, this is a very good, short video that explains it: click here.

If you would like to learn more about the specific Neuroblastoma antibody infusion drug that is given to Caroline while she is inpatient (causing the severe side effects), you can click here.

Thank you, thank you for the continued prayers,
Lantz Family

Finally Home with Hank!

Better day on Sunday

  1. So glad Caroline is home now with Hank & all of you! The video explained immunotherapy in such an understandable way. Unituxin is a seriously strong treatment, but is so worth it in killing off all those cancer cells! I hope all goes well at the clinic this Friday & the lab results are as expected! Have a good week Caroline! Hope you can get a bike ride in! 🚴‍♀️
