Update on Chloe!!!
Back to Blog · September 18, 2020 · Fund Leader Posts
Just wanted to send a quick update on our sweet teammate Chloe!
Chloe will be home for 2 more weeks before her next treatment starts. She has done one round of treatment to try to shrink the disease & tumors. She has had some positive response so far!!!! She had over 75% coverage in her bone marrow on her first scan, so that alone has gone down drastically!!! No new tumors, the spots in her neck and femurs are gone!!! LET’S CELEBRATE THAT WIN!!!!
There is, however, still some tumor on her brain. She will be proceeding with MIBG therapy. MIBG therapy is really strong radiation therapy. She will get 1 dose over 2 hours, but she must stay in isolation until she is no longer radioactive. Her mom can sleep in the room next to her and they can see each other and talk through a small window. Chloe cannot have visitors or bring anything from home to her treatment cycles, she will be sedated while she recovers, but alone for the duration of her treatment. Once she is back to normal (about a week), she returns home to recover and get more scans. We are asking for prayers and positive thoughts the treatment keeps working, that Chloe’s little body can handle the intensity of the treatment, and that her little heart can handle the isolation!!!
Chloe is the 1st for this trial and the youngest they have tried it on at Children’s. It truly is amazing to be a part of a medical system at WashU Barnes Jewish that provides these unique opportunities. I can attest from personal experience, we are blessed with the best in the country for medicine and cancer treatments. Chloe is in good hands medically. And great hands for her support circle!
