Hi everyone I am just curious to know if there are any survivors of Neuroblastoma here that have had chemo,radiation, surgery or combination of any 2-3. I currently don't know any other survivors of NB so I thought I'd do a survey. While every one is different and their dignosis and treatments are as well I have been wondering if I have been alone all this time. I am pretty sure there are others out there but I have either found and lost contact with them or not found anyone at all. Also hopefully we can all be of support to one another as well.
Please answer the following and add further details if you'd like
Name or name you use on CSN- Cait
Diagnosis and age you were diagnosed-13 months
Are you in remission? Yes
