On April 6th, Rose went in for an ultrasound and bloodwork, which showed tumors in her liver and on her adrenal gland. Rose was immediatley admitted to Children's Mercy Hospital. Our world came crashing down around us. Neither Billy nor Brittany have ever been so scared - we have never cried so hard. The team of oncologists came in to our room on April 7th, and verified that Rose in fact had Neuroblastoma. Further testing is to take place this coming week to make sure that the cancer has not spread to other areas of her little body. We are hoping to start chemotherapy as early as next week, in which she may undergo 2-8 cycles, plus surgery, followed by additional chemotherapy (if need be). All donations will go toward Rose's care.
Through all the tears, we have been shown a clear path, given a fighting chance, and know in our hearts that she will beat this. The doctors have laid out a plan. She is the strongest person I know. She is a happy baby and loving 4 month old. Never in our wildest dreams did we think something like this was wrong. As I sit here typing, we have been given hope. Hope for our future and the chance to see our super hero thrive. Please continue to pray for our beautiful Rose. We feel the love and support deep down in our soul. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We will never forget.
