First, we’d like to thank everyone for their love, support and prayers! We appreciate greatly!
Noah is a happy, kind and loving 6 year old boyHe was always so curious about how things worked or how they were made since he was a toddler. He is always so helpful and loves to be involved with things. He was always full of energy and always on the go. He has the biggest heart I’ve ever seen in a little boy.
On January 20, 2021 Noah was diagnosed with B-Cell Acute lymphocytic (lymphoblastic) leukemia (ALL). The news devastated us!
Two weeks prior to Noah’s diagnosis, Noah’s mom noticed that he did not have the energy and appetite he always had. She notices Noah was very pale with several bruises on his legs. He was walking with a slight limp and complained about his legs hurting and being very tired. Noah was taken in to see his pediatrician and several blood tests were collected and sent out.
The very next day Noah’s mom received a phone call from the pediatrician saying that the tests showed some bad news. Noah’s hemoglobin was super low. That’s what was causing the bruising and his CBC count was very low.
We were told to take Noah to the Pediatric ERI. Orlando right away and that the pediatric Hematologist/Oncologist was waiting for us to arrive. They ran several blood tests to re-confirm Noah’s numbers and they came back from the pathologist even lower.
Noah was diagnosed with B-Cell Acute lymphocytic (lymphoblastic) leukemia (ALL) and underwent a Bone Marrow Biopsy, Spinal Tap and had a PICC line put in. They also gave Noah intrathecal (IT) chemotherapy in his spine. A few hours later Noah received a chemo treatment (VinCRIStine) intravenously.
Noah was given a treatment plan that would last for a little over two years.
We are currently in the hospital with Noah in the “Introduction” phase of his treatment plan.
Noah will receive his first dose of Pegasoargase (PEG) on 1/24/2021. We are praying his body accepts the treatment with no allergic reactions. Noah will have another biopsy/spinal tap on 1/28/2021 to see if the chemo is doing what it should be to the cancer cells and if they are and Noah’s numbers stay stable on his own, he can be discharged for outpatient treatments.
Noah has a long journey ahead of him and his little body will be put through a lot. He’s a strong little boy and his spirit remain positive. He is so kind and so loving.
Our hearts are literally broken knowing what Noah is going to have to go through to fight this disease.
This will be a very intense and emotional journey and we know our son is strong and a fighter! Noah will have to endure treatment for over two years.
Thank you all again for the love, support and prayers! We feel so supported and that gives us the strength to be strong for Noah!
Follow Noah through his journey!
