Nathan was found to suffer from bilateral retinoblastoma in May 2009.
When Nathan's mom couldn't seem to get a picture of her baby without capturing a glint of white in his left eye, she thought her camera was malfunctioning. Her pictures kept coming out the same, and she started to wonder if something was wrong with little Nathan's eye. At Nathan's 6-month checkup, she decided to show one of the photographs to his pediatrician. The doctor took one look at the photograph, and his face turned serious. He recommended she take Nathan to specialists right away.
At the family's local hospital, the diagnosis was made: Nathan had bilateral retinoblastoma, a form of eye cancer. Tumors were present in both of Nathan's eyes, and he would need further care. Crushed, Nathan's parents asked the doctor where they should turn for their son's treatment. The doctor was quick to recommend St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. "We can treat it here, but at St. Jude, they're doing research. They have new treatments," she said. "If it was my child, I would go to St. Jude."That was all they needed to hear. The doctor provided a referral, and within a few days, Nathan and his parents were on their way to St. Jude.
At St. Jude, Nathan received a total of 11 rounds of chemotherapy over the course of eight months. He also had laser treatments when, during treatment, his tumors started to grow back. In spring 2009, Nathan completed treatment and was able to have his no-more chemo party. He returns to St. Jude for regular checkups.
Nathan's mom appreciates the family-centered care offered at St. Jude. When Nathan's older brothers visited St. Jude, Child Life Specialists were on hand to answer questions that they had about Nathan's treatment. "Here, they don't just give you medical help," his mother said. "You have appointments with Child Life and Social Work. When your child has cancer, there are so many needs you have that aren't medical, and St. Jude meets all those needs."
Nathan is an energetic boy who loves running after his brothers and playing outside. "Cancer has not slowed him down," his mom said.
