Aden Stephens treatment fund

My name is Lydia Stephens and my six year old son, Aden, has been battling stage 4, high-risk, relapsed, Neuroblastoma for over 5 years now. The first year he received chemotherapy, radiation, a stem cell transplant, immunotherapy, and also had his adrenal gland removed. He was then in remission for over a year. In August of 2017 the doctors at Riley Children’s Hospital found a brain tumor that had already spread throughout his entire body. He then received a craniotomy to remove the tumor. He was then referred to Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York City where he has been receiving a trial drug called humanized 3f8 treatment, another type of immunotherapy. He had been no sign of disease since June of 2017 but is still receiving treatment. Today we got the results back of his most recent scans and in the past 2 months his cancer went from being almost in remission to back worse than before. This is going to require even more trips to New York and longer stays where I will need to be off work. He will need many different treatments with no end in sight. Thank you to those who read his whole story and we appreciate all of the prayers and anyone who has the means to help with our upcoming obstacles.
