Haddon Strong

38583910_1555547479519350_r.jpegHaddon is our youngest boy.  He has the most precious smile, chunky cheeks, and happy personality. Unfortunately, in the few short months of his life he's already endured more than most of us would in our lifetime.

Following about a week of persistent tummy problems and breathing concerns on April 13 2019 at only 3 months of age, we received devastating news that Haddon had cancer. About four days later on April 17th 2019 we confirmed it was stage 4 Neuroblastoma.  Although  a relatively rare form of cancer, neuroblastoma is one of the most common malignant tumours in children under the age of five.

Haddon has a large sized tumor in his chest that horse shoes his spine. The tumor also descends down four spinal notches. He has a few that are on his chest wall as well. Haddon also has several tumors in his enlarged liver (5 times the size it is suppose to be) and tumors behind his kidney. 

Our journey has began with a chest biopsy, a bone marrow biopsy, MRIS, CTS, MIGBS, and two port placements. Along with blood transfusions, oxygen tanks, and sedation, we are slowly developing a plan to treat his Neuroblastoma.

On April 17th we started our first round of Chemo. 

As of right now our our road map consists on a minimum of 8 rounds of chemo, which will last roughly four days and we must be inpatient. If the tumor shrinks we will have one/+ surgeries to remove the cancer if possible. We are trying to have as little radiation because of his age. If this road map doesn’t work it will open others door to other harsh treatments such as immunotherapy, radiation, stem cell transplant, bone marrow transplant, more surgeries. 

We are absolutely devastated at the thought of not being able to provide our youngest baby with every possible option to extend his life and give him an opportunity to grow up and share his testimony with the world. We are raising our kids to be faithful, selfless, to show positive values in their every action. 

Please, please, please help us ensure that Haddon gets this chance to achieve his full potential! No matter what the outcome of this journey is, our family will endeavour that our every action be directed towards giving back to the wonderful community that has shown so much love, strength and compassion to make one little boy smile again.

Any unused funds will be donated to charity to help further research into finding a cure for this terrible disease.

With our heartfelt gratitude
The Norris Family
