Caedmon Albert was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma at nine months of age. He had surgery on his abdomen to remove the tumor (Cade and Madeleine have matching tummy scars), and today Cade is cancer free! Like any child with a cancer diagnosis, Cade will be monitored for life. This means frequent scans and tests to make sure that the tumor has not returned.
As you can see Cade is just about the cutest two-and-half-year old in existence:
Possibly my favorite picture ever!
It's hard to find things to be grateful for when your child is diagnosed with cancer, but I am grateful that Neuroblastoma led us to finding Cade and his mom and dad. Cade's family has been so supportive and loving to us and we greatly enjoy spending time with them. Humphrey loves them too as they are his second family...and I have been told that Cade even prays for Humphrey every night at bed time!
I finally ordered and received my race-day shirt that I custom made from Cafe Press, and was able to start working on adding some names. Cade's name stands out in bright orange right beneath the logo.
I'm honored to carry Cade's name with me.
