My Niece Olivia was diagnosed with a Neuroblastoma Stage 3 at the when she was two years old.
After her third chemotherapy session she had a surgery.
The surgeon resected the tumor and her left adrenal gland.
She finish her chemotherapy sessions and has been treated with accutane for the last 5 months.
Now she is near to the end of the protocol. She is 3 year old now.

We are wondering about what is the best we can do to avoid a relapse.
Has anyone had a similar experience? Does anyone have some recommendations or information?

Thanks.

Dear Fernando,

The easiest way to locate other CSN members with similar experiences is to type keywords (such as "childhood cancer," "neuroblastoma," "neuroblastoma relapse," etc.) on the search bar at the top of the home page. You can refine your search by clicking on the “Advance search” link listed underneath the search field.
