My grand niece who is 10 days old was just diagnosed with Stage III Nueroblastoma. The tumor has already destryoyed her 3 of her ribs. They are doing a biopsy this morning and supposedly starting chemo also today. The tumor is the size of a tennis ball, and extremely close to her spind so that it cannot be surgically removed. Monday they are doing a nuclear medical study to see if there are any other tumors.
This has devastated my niece. What is the prognosis for this type of cancer? Should we be preparing ourselves for the worst but praying for the best?
