My son Terrance was diagnosed with an uncommon case of Neuroblastoma Stage IV on April 29, 2013. I say uncommon because they cannot find a tumor. So the treatment plan for Terrance is several rounds of harsh chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant and/or immunotherapy. We chose immunotherapy because in logically thinking since there's no tumor the treatment plan in my opinion was basically cutting down the tree and not the roots in other words there's a chance of relapsing. With the immunotherapy antibody, it would kill off any new cells that may form but the only doctor that had the clinical trial open was located in New York. Terrance doctor inquired about our interest in the trial and set up the appointment; which we did not expect so quickly, in about 2.5 weeks. The Social Worker at the hospital gave me the information about Miracle Flight and the rest is history. On June 30, 2013 we boarded American Airlines headed to New York. I really appreciate the kindness and patience that was shown to me in filling out the application and assitance from the representative. I will definately use them again.
