In November of last year Oliver was diagnosed with a rare form of pediatric cancer called Neuroblastoma. Many would call this every parent’s nightmare. I watched as Richie and Suzi dealt through a whole range of emotions and settled on determination. They were determined not to let this break them. Determined to fight with their son. Determined to stand up and be a voice for childhood cancer. Most of all, determined that, NO MATTER WHAT, God would be glorified through their son and through their journey. They have been an incredible testament of faith and hope to me. There is no where I would have rather been last Saturday than at Children’s documenting Oliver’s last round of chemo.
This boy. He’s so sweet and friendly to everyone he meets. As you can tell, chemo doesn’t keep him down for long. We ran the hallways and laughed a lot at this silly guy. If you want to follow along his journey head over to their Facebook page and give them a follow.
