Today is the day we've been dreaming, hoping, and praying for since March 2010...Luke is now 5 years in remission! After a visit to his oncologist this week and clear labs, we were told he no longer needs to see his oncologist, and has been transferred to the "survivor clinic" for once-a-year check-ups to monitor him for treatment late effects. It's a surreal feeling, and one that will take awhile to sink in!
When he was first diagnosed, we scoured the web looking for neuroblastoma success stories, and most of the stories we read did not have happy endings. So we leave this page not only as a tribute to our little boy's strength, courage, and determination, but as a beacon of hope to other families who need a ray of light during their darkest days.
Thank you to everyone for your countless prayers, words of encouragement, and support. Thank you to the amazing nurses and physicians who not only took care of Luke, but the rest of our family as well. There are no words that can truly show our appreciation. We love you all!
