On November 15 our son Oliver turned 11 months old. On the same day, he had an MRI performed and a large pelvis mass was discovered. A week later a biopsy was performed on the mass. On November 29 we received a call from our oncologist telling us that Oliver has been diagnosed with a rare pediatric cancer called neuroblastoma. We met with the oncology team on November 30 to go over treatment plans. Then Oliver Then he will begin his first round of chemo therapy. All before his first birthday.
He has has now gone through 8 rounds of chemotherapy . The tumor actually GREW and didn’t react to chemo. It was decided to perform surgery to remove as much as safely possible. Oliver still has over half of the tumor with active cancer remaining, so we are currently weighing our options of 2nd opnions.
This journey has felt so long already, but we know we have a long road ahead still. Please pray for our son and for our family.
We have had several people inquire about giving donations to our family to help with medical expenses, gas/travel, and food while we have extended hospital stays. We have set up this page for anyone who would like to give financially. Please do not feel pressured in any way to do so! Anything - prayers, love, support, hugs, donations - are all so appreciated by our family. Even sharing this fundraising page brings more awareness to pediatric cancer which is so very important! We appreciate the support for our brave boy.
Love, the Bibee family
