Diagnosed September 2006 - Stage IV Neuroblastoma at the age 3. Approximately 325 children a year in the U.S. receive this devastating diagnosis...about 25% survive.

Evan has a particularly insidious form of the disease due to the presence of an aggressive cancer gene that further diminishes his chances. We had never heard of Neuroblastoma prior to Evan's diagnosis. It is a completely life changing event. We hope and pray every day for a cure that does not yet exist. When friends offer help and ask what we need, we simply want to say, "A Cure". The best way to help Evan and kids like him is to support research on this rare and often ignored pediatric cancer. Evan is our only child. We need your help today!
