Please Help Landon Fight Neuroblastoma

We would just like to update everyone! First off we would like to THANK each and everyone of you for kind and gracious donations. The boys LOVE their "school bus" as they call it :). Carter just turned 2 and Cullen just turned 3 and both are growing like weeds! Landon has been doing alright until about 4 weeks ago when he started have a lot of leg pain which we though at first was a pulled muscle from bowling (Landon and Cullen started a bowling league on Saturdays for the summer :)) Then we had thought it was a joint out of place. Doctors sent us to orthopedics, and then orthopedics sent us to rheumatology. They found nothing. So, Landon's doctor in Chicago who specializes in his disorder CCHS, said she would like a CAT scan. Landon's disease makes him prone to Neuroblastoma, which is a type of cancer. A couple hours after the scan the doctor called with bad news. It appeared that Landon had a large tumor behind his heart and between his lungs. We then were scheduled to go see the oncologist the next day. When we got into her office our worse fears were confirmed. Our Landon was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma. On top of having the large tumor behind his heart, the cancer has spread to his spine, breast bone and pelvis bones, and also appears to be in his bone marrow. We will be doing chemo for 5 months (which we will be in and out of the hospital). Then he'll do radiation daily. Landon will be receiving a blood transfusion tomorrow, and then he will be getting a full body scan on thursday, and then will be admitted on thursday. Friday he will get a port put in his chest and a biopsy done. Chemo will start Friday night. He will be in the hospital for 5 days for chemo then he is supposed to be able to come home for two weeks. This is a very fast spreading cancer as it was not there in April. We thank you all again for your kind hearted ness towards our family.
