We were inspired to create Little Hero Foundation to help others after our son Ben was diagnosed with liver cancer at 5 months old. We have been incredibly lucky despite the frightening diagnosis, and Ben is thankfully doing great now that he has finished treatment. Ben is an active and daring 4 year old, and a loving little boy.
During treatment, Ben’s cancer tumor responded to the chemotherapy given, and he was able to have lifesaving liver resection surgery. Nonetheless, chemotherapy was tough on Ben, and we spent nearly 100 nights in the hospital. Ben needed several blood and platelet transfusions, and dealt with a lot of pain necessitating strong pain medications, breathing assistance and nutrition by IV. Ben will continue to be monitored for his cancer marker levels—we hope and pray more than anything that the cancer never comes back and that treatment side effects are minimal.
Little Hero Foundation was formed to further the goals of a better tomorrow, funding research for more direct and less harmful cancer treatments, and a brighter today for families in the trenches, fighting for their child’s life.
