Peter the Strong Rock
On March 12th, 2020, Peter was born having trouble breathing. He was immediately taken to Cook Children's Hospital and was admitted to the NICU. After further testing, a 4 x 3 x 2cm. mass was discovered around an artery and pressing against his skull. At one week old he had a biopsy that confirmed the mass was a neuroblastoma tumor, and at two weeks old he began chemotherapy. On June 1, 2020, Peter completed treatment. On January 30, 2024, 1,413 days after he was diagnosed, we were told he was NED (no evidence of disease) and would no longer need MRIs.
During Peter's treatment, he received four rounds of chemotherapy, three blood transfusions, multiple surgeries, and MRIs under anesthesia. We thank the Lord every day for healing Peter and for the amazing Cook Children's Hospital that has been with us through this journey.
"And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it." Matthew 16:18
