Christian is a 6-month old little boy from Dewitt Iowa and is battling Neuroblastoma cancer. Since his birth 7 weeks early, Christian has had numerous trips to hospitals, emergency rooms and doctor's offices. Until now his family was struggling to understand why he had a hard time breathing, eating or developing. In mid-April he underwent an intrusive biopsy procedure at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital were he was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. He remains in the hospital recovering from the surgery and once he is strong enough will begin a series of chemotherapy treatments to 'shrink' the baseball size tumor. The doctors are optimistic the therapy will shrink the tumor and will determine if further surgery or treatments are needed. 

The funding is needed immediately to help the family during this challenging time. Both parents are traveling to Iowa City to be by Christian's side, while juggling raising his 4 year old brother. All of the funding will go to help pay for Christian's medical bills, help his family with transportation and costs while he receives his medical care in Iowa City.  

Christian is an amazing boy that inspires everyone that knows him, especially if you see how happy he is despite the pain and suffering he has endured. Please help us help Christian beat cancer!

We are back home and someone is happy to see Christian! Christian did great with his second round of chemo. The x-ray shows the tumor has not grown any and looks stable, doctor says it looks better but not a huge change . Next few days will be rough due to the drugs side effects, but Christian is fighting through it. Next week more labs and then chemo again the week of June 4th. Keep the prayers coming, God Bless.
