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!

Christian is officially done with chemo! Today he got to celebrate the ending of his chemo with the nurses coming in to sing to him, a cookie cake which he can’t eat, A new onesie, a bell, and a brand new toy. After taking a look at the scan his doctors said it is shrunk down to about a quarter of its original size. Christian only has about a 1% chance of this cancer coming back. We meet with the surgeon tomorrow to schedule his surgery. This little boy has been so strong, and even though his chemo is over we still have a big surgery to get him through to officially put this behind us.

Hello everyone. Christian has completed his last round of chemo and is home doing well. He has had some rounds of nausea, but other than that is doing great. He heads to Iowa City July 10th for his CT scan and then meets with his doctors the next day. His tumor is responding, so hopefully they will be able to remove what is remaining in the coming weeks. Keep the prayers coming and thanks again for everyone's kindness and well wishes.

Hello everyone. Christian is continuing his post chemo recovery before his next and hopefully last round. His blood work came back and his levels were initially too low to start, so he will need to be tested several more times this week before we know when the next round begins.

His family and friends continue to work on a benefit they will be holding Sunday July 1st at Knight's of Columbus in Davenport, IA. If you are in the area please come by, there is going to be some good food, music and raffle prizes donated by local businesses, family, friends and others.
