Chemo Round 2

March 28th, 2016 by Sarah T.

3/28/16:  Today we checked in to Scottish Rite for Burke’s 2nd round of a newer treatment for refractory (stubborn) neuroblastoma, Immunotherapy with 2 types of chemo.  Prior to this (and after the updates above) Burke had a Stem Cell Transplant during late November and early December (3.5 weeks inpatient).  It was a rough couple of weeks, but he improved and following 12 rounds of daily radiation in January, we scanned and he has 2 boney spots left, his right orbit and left tibia.  CT, MRI and Bone Marrows were clear!  We will do an MIBG scan in about 2 weeks and this will hopefully prove that Burke is finally NED, but we will still have another 4-5 rounds of immunotherapy.
