On March 15th, 2007 we learned that our precious Hannah’s Neuroblastoma had recurred. Even though this news is devastating, we will not allow our hope to falter. Her courage and spirit continue to amaze and inspire us.
Welcome to Hannah's Web Page. It has been provided to keep people updated about her. On March 18, 2005 Hannah was diagnosed with stage IV Neuroblastoma. She finished her first round of chemotherapy on March 26th, her second round on April 15th, her third round on May 9th, her fourth round on May 27th and her fifth round on June 28th.
On May 5th we learned that after two rounds of chemotherapy Hannah's bone marrow is clean, and on May 17th they did the harvest for her transplants that were completed October 7th. For more information click the treatment link at the top of the hannahshaver.com website.
Hannah underwent surgery to remove her primary tumor on June 20th. They were able to remove the bulk of the tumor and are hopeful that chemotherapy and radiation will take care of the rest of it.
There is still a long road ahead as she continues to battle the remainder of solid tumor, the cancer in her bones. Hannah is currently at home after receiving the second of two stem cell/bone marrow transplants. This has absolutely been the toughest part of the treatment for Hannah. She had been on a constant morphine drip to manage her pain. She had lots of sores in her mouth and stomach. She is on the upswing now though and is improving a little bit everyday. She is currently off feeding through her G-tube every night. Hannah's radiation therapy is also complete.
Here we go again...
On April 9th Dr. Rashbaum put Hannah's central line back in and she was admitted for her chemotherapy treatment. Dr. Rapkin Said she will need chemotherapy every three weeks. Each treatment will last five days, but can be done out patient. Hannah was really happy to hear that. He also said he will be working to do what needs to be done to get her bone marrow harvested for a future transplant. He will also continue to look into the clinical trails that Hannah will qualify for and we will update her site regarding that as we learn more. We want to thank everyone for your kind words, prayers and donations. It means so much to our family just knowing how much people care.
