Jantzen got me up at 4 am this morning crying. This is childhood cancer. I was not sure if it was a headache or double vision. He is on hospice care because of his brain cancer. Hospice starts early with children so they are not stranger danger. I picked him up and gave him a hug, changed his diaper and gave him a hug. Brought him to Grandma in our bed and she gave him a hug. She asked him if he wanted a drink? He said in his voice "no" . Martha then asked if he was hungry? He said "yes" . Grandma then asked Jantzen if he wanted waffles? "Yes! " was his answer! So on my way to make his waffles. Grandma said " make it two" I made his waffles and picked him up and gave him a hug! We sat in the dark as he enjoyed. He ate two and in his voice he cried. I asked if he wanted more? "Yes" so with lots of butter he had another took a drink another hug and off to bed!
What a fear I have for my Grandson . What a joy for it just being hungry for waffles. I BELIEVE !
I'm going to take him fishing in a small boat. I want to thank God for my Grandson Jantzen . He has taught me so much. Love Grandpa.
Jantzens treatment plan is 3 weeks off then one more chemo treatment of 5 days. He is getting better this is his first week off. Love David
Jantzen's last MRI was bad . His doctors said that he had about three months. We were thinking that it would be gone or smaller. He looked so heathy. We decided on more chemo to kill this medulloblastoma . He made it through first five days but his port became infected and had to have surgery . He now has a Picc in his right arm. I want to thank everyone for your support through his treatment . The list is long and your donations have made a direct impact on his life.
Dear Lord please be good to my Grandson Jantzen .
Jantzen is two today! Happy birthday! He is doing great thanks for all your prayers and support. Love Grandpa
Jantzen is doing great and is almost walking. Thankyou for your prayers and support.
Results from yesterday's MRI, lumbar puncture, and hearing test - lumbar was clear of any cancer cells!! MRI shows the tumor on brain stem is not any bigger but not any smaller. We are staying on course with chemo orally at home for 6 months with blood work and physicals weekly. The hearing is perfect ( good to know he can hear us - just maybe selective hearing)Thankyou for your support.
Jantzen is doing well with all the treatment . Keep saying your prayers for my little buddy. He is strong to handle all this .
Results of MRI are good. Two of the tumors significant shinkage, One of the larger areas showed shrinkage (so it is responding to treatment) and no new masses! Spinal fluid clear of any cancer cells!! Starting " Consolidation" stage Tuesday 04/08/2014
- with 5 days in hospital. The doctors will monitor the metabolism of the new chemo drug and adjust accordingly.
Jantzen is a tuff toddler please help if you can!
In clinic just saw Jantzens main doctor and he showed us the mri results. His tumors are 80% GONE!!!! To see the tumors from the first day we came in to when he has the surgery, and then from now its crazy. Realistically he's only been through the chemo cycles twice and we are on the third now. To have this much progress is such a blessing. All the hard days and frustration with everything seems like nothing. Thank you everyone for the prayers!
Jantzen Started his 3rd round of Chemo last night, just as he gets his energy back and is playing and talking we start the whole process back over.
Having a son with cancer is tuff sitting here watching the harsh chemicals going in his body and basically twiddling my thumbs waiting for the effects to hit sucks. Side effects only get worse as treatments continue. He doesn't understand what is going on, why we live in the hospital for two weeks then go home for a couple days. Chemo doesn't just kill the cancer it kills every living cell in your body. My son is my strength but we still need love and support from everyone else. Im not begging for money but if you can donate thanks, If not send a prayer for my son. Thanks in advance!
One of his docs just came in and gave the best news of the year so far.
Jantzens tumors have shrunk down in size significantly. They did find a 3rd tumor on his spine but it is shrinking with the others. The tumors in his brain are not applying pressure on his brain anymore either. Im one happy momma today!!
This has been a tough two weeks on little Jantzen. After an intense round of chemotherapy, Jantzen's appetite has diminished, resulting in the placement of a feeding tube. Jantzen was also diagnosed with an extremely contagious virus, Clostridium difficile. He wil remain at Children's Medical Center of Dallas until things change for the positive. Your continued prayers for Jantzen, Jennifer, and Martha are appreciated. Please pray that Jantzen's appetite will return to normal and tear the bacteria causing the C Diff will not cause permanent colon/intestine damage. Jantzen also got coronavirus and constant vomit and diarrhea. The Doctors removed his feeding tube so his tummy could rest. He has been crying so much his little voice is horse.

Jantzen had another tough day today. They put in new IV's in his little hand and feet. The Doctors also did another spinal tap and drained more fluid from his precious head. The port for Chemo can't be put in till they fix the head because of medicine from Chemo will stay there and not be flushed out. Please continue to Pray for my Grandson Jantzen he has a ruff ride ahead.
I ask for your prayers for Grandma "Martha" and his Mom " Jennifer" they have had very few breaks from hospital in last three weeks and have a long road ahead. Love David
Jantzen December 3rd 2013
Jantzen has been moved to sixth floor of Children's Hospital. This is a clean room floor to keep infections down. Double doors wash hands entrance.Only two stuffed animals.
His bump on his little head looks terrible it has grown twice as big.The nurses tried 4 times to hook up another IV line , they failed . The doctors have found another infection and the main IV might be the problem. They are not sure but have to clear it up so his port in his chest can be put in for Chemo.
Jantzen was eating good and laughing and playing yesterday.
Martha and Jennifer remain strong watching over his every move.

6th floor Children's Hospital Dallas TX
Jantzen was playing on his scooter toy and he started to tilt his head back and rode his toy that way. His Mom took him to the doctor " thought ear infection" and they were sent to Children's Medical Center in Dallas Texas. He had 7 tumors located at the base of his brain and in his spinal cord were gravity had placed them. The Doctors removed 1.5 of 3 areas, they could not remove all they wanted because of location next to spinal cord.
Jantzen has been in the hospital for two weeks.This has happened that fast.He is recovering and is very tough little Grandson. He's getting a hearing test today. They will start Chemotherapy when he is clear of infection from meningitis. Jantzen is 15 months old.
My family is strong and I know everyone is praying.
Any donations will be a blessing. We will make it!
Love Brother David
I was looking for a way to find support for the cost of everything. I found this sight. Glory be to God for great and mighty are his ways. Remember that any donation helps .
It is tough to ask for your help. I'm sorry that I had to introduce to my family and friends and strangers to childhood cancer. Jantzen has medulloblastoma : brain cancer.
Jantzen's Doctors visit today showed his cancer has grown 3 times bigger than in October 2014.
We are on full hospice care at home and his treatments with chemo are finished. The Doctors said Jantzen had about 6 weeks to live.
We have taught our 4 children to work hard ; to earn it;
Now I'm teaching them if you really need help ; Ask for it
Please help : share or donate or both.
Jantzen is our first Grandson and our life with him has forever changed us.
