“We started the official fight this morning at 10:00 am. We are going to fight and win this battle. Let’s do this.” Strong, hopeful words on the day Trevor’s first round of chemo began.

Two and half years later and Trevor’s dad recalls the countless number of procedures:

  • 4 cycles of gut wrenching, poisonous chemotherapy…
  • Over 12 hours of surgery (I think more, but it was such a blur)…
  • Another 2 cycles of chemotherapy…
  • Cancer progression…
  • Two MIBG therapies (liquid radiation that makes you radioactive so you are in an isolated room with nominal parental interaction) …
  • 3 more cycles of chemotherapy with a seizure in between one of the cycles…
  • 14 traditional radiation treatments…
  • 15 cycles of torturous antibody therapy…

But the good news is that Trevor is currently in remission from neuroblastoma. Even better news is that he’s currently in a vaccine trial in hopes of preventing relapse. He is an incredibly strong boy who loves his family, especially his sister.

His entire family has been on a journey of highs and lows and Pile of Smile would like to grant Trevor’s wish of relaxing with his family on a Disney cruise. He is one of the kids we will be raising money for at our second annual gala. Even if you can’t be there in person, you can still help by donating to the cause.
