Meet Blake

Hometown: Westerville, Ohio
Age: 5
Diagnosis: Neuroblastoma (cancer)

At 10 months old, Blake’s parents discovered Blake had a lump on his neck, which was determined to be neuroblastoma – a rare type of cancer that affects the central nervous system.  Given the size of the tumor and risk of anesthetizing Blake at such a young age, the plan called for chemotherapy to shrink the tumor.

After several rounds of chemo, the tumor was starting to die and at a point where surgery could be performed.  Unfortunately the family faced another hurdle during surgery when the tumor had to be removed from Blake’s vocal cords, causing them to be paralyzed.  Blake’s parents were told he would never be able to talk again.  After months of prayer and with his parents leaning heavily on their faith, Blake rang the victory bell and was discharged from the hospital cancer free.  Within a year, Blake learned to walk and talk and today is an energetic, happy-go-lucky soon to be six year old!
