on behalf of Rose Ramirez
Rose Ramirez (and family) needs our help. Sweet Rosie, our sweet, sometimes sassy, Disney loving beautiful little 3.5 year old cousin was living the typical life of a toddler with her baby brother, mommy and daddy in Orlando, FL. When she suddenly started complaining of stomach pain, and wasn’t eating much, her mom and dad decided it was time to get her checked out. During the course of a few days her, and her families entire life changed. The complaints of pain and refusals to eat were not that of just a “toddler being a toddler”, but something of a parents worst nightmare.

CT scans showed a large mass in Roses stomach, that would later be confirmed as stage 4 neuroblastoma...Cancer and it is aggressive it has spread to her bone marrow.

So now we fight. Rose is already a fighter, we just have to give her family all the ammunition they need to get her the best treatment possible.

Rose is currently at Nemour’s Hospital in Orlando, but once she is stable, the plan is to get  her treatment in Philadelphia where she can receive the best care and doctors can work to establish the best treatment plan for her. It’s going to be a long road for the Ramirez’s. But with a donation of whatever you can afford, some love, and a whole lot of prayer, we can be right there beside them to let them know they are not alone! #rosiecheekscancerstinks

Good morning everyone. Rose physically is the best she’s been in months. She has lots of energy and is eating well. She’s been through 10 cycles of chemotherapy, 5 cycle of immunotherapy, and surgery. It’s been about a month since she’s had any treatments because her platelets are not recovering like they use to. Her platelet count is 55. A normal 4 year old has a platelet count of 150,000 to 450,000. Last Friday her doctors told me her cancer might have spread to her bone marrow and that might be causing her platelet issues. She has scans and bone marrow biopsies set for August 21. Once we get the results we will update everyone. Next month is childhood cancer awareness. We are selling Team Princess Rose shirts that will be delivered in time for childhood cancer awareness month. Check out the shirts and if you buy one please post a picture of yourself wearing it. Rose feels special seeing people support her. Thank you.

I can not believe we are already 7 months into this journey. Rose has been through the standard 5 rounds of front line chemo and surgery. After all that Rose only has three locations with cancer, her kidney, her right femur, and her lymph nodes by her collar bone. We decided the very high dose chemo with rescue of stem cell transplant was not safe for Rose so we have gone on a different treatment path. Rose will need 10 to 15 rounds of chemo plus immunization therapy. She has already done 2 cycles and will be admitted at CHOP tomorrow to begin cycle 3. Please continue praying for Rose that this treatment will work . She has been making the most of her time out of the hospital having fun at the local zoo.

Rose is recovering well from her surgery. The surgeon removed approximately 90% of the tumor from her abdomen. During the surgery he discovered the tumor damaged her left kidney so bad that it needed to be removed. She also had a G tube implanted in the right side of her stomach. She is still throwing up everyday so she's lost weight again. Her 5th cycle of chemotherapy is being push back to next week in hopes of her being able to gain some weight. Please keep Rose in your prayers. After this cycle Rose will move onto two stem cell transplants, radiation, and immunization therapy.

We finally have some good news. Rose had an MRI done yesterday. Her doctors compared her MRI from last October to yesterday's MRI and her tumor is smaller! So chemo is working. Her kidneys are still surrounded and being squeezed by her tumor. She is scheduled for surgery on Feb. 21 to try to remove as much tumor as possible then more chemo. Please continue to keep Rose in your prayers.
