May 2018 - Update
Recently many people have asked me to update this site in an effort to show our continued love and support for Noah and his family. As always our thoughts and prayers are with Noah and his family as he continues to be an inspiration to so many.
Below is a message from Gina, which she posted on Facebook on May 15, 2018
Family and Friends,
Noah has made a decision that no man of 19 years should have had to make, but our family stands steadfastly by him. In light of his disease state, Noah has decided that he wants to receive hospice care. This specialized care enables him to be comfortable while being surrounded in love by his family and close friends. He is at peace with his choice.
Noah fought Rhabdomyosarcoma for as long as he could and with every ounce of his being. He did so with a level of dignity and grace that we have been in awe of, and he is beyond deserving of rest and comfort. So, he shall have that.
What few things do we ask of you? To respect our need for privacy at this time. To please understand that our energy will be spent entirely on Noah rather than communicating. To pray for Noah and his sisters.
• able to withstand great force or pressure.
• (of a person's constitution) not easily affected by disease or hardship.
• not easily disturbed, upset, or affected.
• (of a person's character) showing determination, self-control, and good judgment.
Thank you for loving us and for always standing #Noahstrong alongside our incredibly strong son. We cherish each and every one of you.
March 2017 - A Message from Noah's mom:
Our hearts are heavy once again... the results of Noah's last PET scan were not favorable. Noah's cancer is back and it's worse than the first diagnosis. It is now in several different parts of his body. He is undergoing further testing to determine a treatment plan. We are opening the Go Fund Me again due to many requests. The donations will be used for potential alternative treatments and travel that might not be covered by insurance. Noah has a positive outlook and we remain hopeful.
Thank you for your continued support!

19 months ago - A message from Noah's Mom
Today our hearts were broken in a million pieces. We were bracing ourselves for the bad news, but this is more than we can bear. Our sweet Noah has been diagnosed with Rhabdomyoscarma, cancer of the muscle and bone marrow, stage 4. We begin our journey today as we are all preparing Noah for what lies ahead. It will be a long and tough road....52 weeks of chemo and radiation. Nothing will take Noah away from us.....EVER! We are prepared to fight every inch of the way. Please pray for Noah....don't pray for us.....Noah needs ALL the prayers. Thank you for you continued outpouring of love and support.
This initial campaign by Noah's friends is to raise money to cover his early medical expenses and to purchase a laptop so Noah can continue his schoolwork while he receives his treatments over the next 52 weeks.
Every little bit helps !!
