Caroline Clinical Update / Vanderbilt Ambassador

Caroline had 2 visits to Vanderbilt in the last 3 days. On Friday, she had a scheduled monthly clinical visit, and today, she visited as an Ambassador of the hospital to help open the brand new 10th Floor!

Clinical Update - All of her blood tests and urine makers (can aid in early detection of a relapse) looked great, and the doctors are happy with her current level of health. She will return to Vanderbilt in July for her 3-month post-treatment MIBG and CT scans, as well as a full day of labs and clinical testing.

Giving Back - She always has a fun time representing Vanderbilt in any way she can!  Caroline was able to tell her story, and tour the new floor, which will take care of young patients just like her for many years to come.  The video she worked on today should be published in the fall and we will certainly share when available. We are very grateful to the Carell family for being so generous and supportive of Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, as well as all of the other donors that made the expansion possible.  It's a true blessing to have access to the kind of care that saves lives so close to home!

Much Love,
The Lantz Family
