Rayshawn has a tumor that is taking up most of his left side. On June 12th, we found out that the tumor was a neuroblastoma cancer tumor which had spread to his bone marrow. After 5 rounds of Chemotherapy Rayshawn's tumor shrank 50% of its original size. On October 2nd Rayshawn went in for surgery to get the remaining tumor removed from his body. After 15.5 hours my baby boy was out of surgery and tumor free but lost his left kidney and his spleen.
On Halloween Rayshawn received his last round of Chemotherapy before his stem cell placement. Which with that they will giving him a VERY strong dose of chemo that will completely kill his whole body... then he will receive his life-saving stem cells... and we will be in the hospital for quite some time after that. But we found out that Rayshawn's kidney is not up and working as strong as they are wanting to proceed with the BMT. Now we have to wait and see what they want to do next.
