Quarterly Scans - Relapse #2

We received horrible news yesterday: both routine imaging scans (PET and CT) showed a spot in Caroline's chest that appears to be relapsed Neuroblastoma. It's in the same area as her first relapse in 2022. There is no standard of care for this, so we don't have any more news at this time.

Next steps:
- bone marrow biopsy tomorrow (6/27)
- meet with her medical team on Friday (6/28) to review potential treatments or clinical trials available locally and around the country
- MIBG injection and scan (7/2 and 7/3 respectively) 

We will update the blog as we get info along the way, but for now, please just pray for our beautiful little girl.

can you tell she'll officially be a "tween" in a couple weeks with that side eye?
