Wyatt is 6 years old. Instead of going to Kindergarten he is battling stage IV High Risk Neuroblastoma, a solid tumor that usually begins in the adrenal gland. His cancer was spread throughout his body. Since being diagnosed in March of 2018 he has had a biopsy and Hickman catheter placed, 6 rounds of Induction chemo, tumor resection surgery (including the removal of his left adrenal gland), multiple bone marrow biopsies and scans, 1 cycle of antibody therapy, & is starting proton radiation. He is being treated far away from home in NYC. He will continue to travel to NYC this year for antibody therapy, and following that a vaccine trial.

Wyatt is joyful, loving, kind, curious, thoughtful, funny and also fiesty, stubborn, and has his own way of doing things. He is happiest when he is free to play outside, ride his bike, and run around with his brothers. He is a middle child, between older brother Henry (8) and younger brother Brooks (4). He says he likes being a middle child because they are "the most loving-- they have the love to keep everyone together."

The funds raised here will be used for medical and household bills, travel costs to/from treatments, doctors appointments and clinic visits, as well as other expenses that may come up as life continues.

They were in NYC last week for Wyatt to receive scans (no news on that yet) and got to celebrate the 4th with a great cookout and fireworks. So cool for Wyatt, his brothers and mom to all be together this year to celebrate.

Then, Saturday night, they were off to the races as Wyatt was "adopted" by a driver. So fun!

Wyatt, his brothers, and myself had the most incredible time at the Lighthouse Family Retreat in Florida this past week (ALL our costs were covered, from travel to condo to meals. Extraordinary! This is something I would NEVER have been able to afford to do for them).

We got to travel for fun. For joy. For rest. To reconnect.

We had family partners with beautiful smiles and loving hearts that served us-- I mean, they fixed our plates at meals, cleaned the condo, put a chair and umbrella on the beach for us.

It was an incredible, beautiful experience and I'm so grateful we were blessed with this opportunity. We made wonderful memories.

Vaccine number 4 is done!
Wyatt and I got up at 3am and flew to New York (we did not have a direct flight) on Wednesday. We got in by late afternoon. This time our flight was into JFK which is further away so the ride into the city takes longer and is more expensive (almost twice as much)! JFK is such a big airport, Wyatt really liked seeing all the different international airlines and guessing where they flew to.
We went in to Sloan at 9am. The first thing they do is get a set of vitals which they'll use to compare with his set they take after vaccine. They also do a height and weight to make sure they get the right amount of medice. He is up to 52 pounds! After vitals they do a blood draw. He was very brave. I checked his labs later and his hemoglobin is finally in a normal range! For the first time since before diagnosis! Then we wait while the lab creates the vaccine. That usually takes about 3 hours. We had our return flight home set for 3:54pm so I was getting a little nervous (I never book them for days we are in clinic but I really wanted him to make it home for the last day of school). Wyatt got his vaccine at about 1:15, we waited and got vitals done, then we were free to head back to the Ronald McDonald House to get out and get to the airport. We left the House at 2pm, got to the airport at 3pm, and made it to our flight! We had 3 cycles of beta-glucan medicine with us so TSA had to examine them but even that didn't take too long.
We flew to Boston and had a long layover--our flight home wasn't until 830pm. We hadn't eaten since breakfast and wanted to celebrate being done with vaccine number 4 so we ate at Legal Sea Foods and got some Boston Creme pie to celebrate. :)
By the time we got home to Minneapolis Wyatt's leg was really swollen and sore, and he limped through the airport as we made our way to the truck. He did not complain, he is such a good traveler and trooper.
Our next trip to New York is the week of 4th of July for scans!
I am so incredibly grateful to each of you for your help and support. The costs for cab rides, airport parking, food for kids at home and for me and Wyatt all add up so quickly. My greatest dream for this summer is to be able to be present in the moment with my children and not worry about finances or bills. Just enjoy the day and make tons of fun memories.

Wyatt was on Kare 11 news last night! He showed off his super speed :)

Although we have reached a great point in treatment, I am still struggling financially as the impact of the past year continues to make itself felt. My work hours were reduced but expenses were not. Any help is so very much appreciated. Thank you all for the love and support.
