Success treatment is finished
 
Hi All

We have not posted for sometime. I wanted to share out wonderful news with you all.

My daughter Brooke was born with KHE down her throat and accross her face, after 3 1/2 year of steriod and chemo treatment I am happy to say we are finished.

Brooke was finally taken of steriod last month she now has no sign of Hemangiomas and has been discharged from the children hospital. After nearly 4 years I can finally say I have a little girl with no medical complications.

To all you parents whose children are still receving treatment, there is a big light at the end of the tunnel and yes I know how hard the road can be but it is worth every little step you make when you see your child smiling at you because her doctor has told her that there are no more needles.

Stay strong and look forward every day.

Cheryl & Brooke

SOOO happy to hear the success of the treatments. I sent you a message but I'm hoping this finds you, incase that doesn't. My son is only 7 weeks old and starting the very long journey your daughter has endured. You see, he has KHE on his face and neck. It started to effect his breathing and eating at one point when the tumor was trapping so many platelets that his dropped down to 6. He was started on Vincristine and steroids (they are now slowly taking him off the steroids) and it has brought it back to a state where he can eat and breath normally. We were in the hospital for the last three weeks straight and we were just able to come home. We aren't sure if this will ever get smaller or if we have just stopped it from growing and eating his platelets. Your success just makes me so hopeful and to get to speak with you and share pictures would mean the world to me. Thanks so much for your time and God bless your daughter. Enjoy being free of this struggle.
