Smashing Cancer

This 17-year-old; Henry Dai, celebrated his remission by destroying a replica of the tumor that once grew in his chest.

This a great article about determination and strength! Cancer is not always a story about physically beating or “smashing” cancer but it also includes emotional, mental and spiritual healing.

We wanted to signify the destruction of this evil he has been fighting

said David Hoogstra, MD, a doctor in the pediatric hematology-oncology fellowship program @ Spectrum Health Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital

Shortly before the celebration, Henry and his parents met with Dr. Hoogstra to discuss the results of his recent PET scan.

He showed them two scans, side by side. In the one taken before treatment, the tumor appeared as an orange blob near his heart. In the one taken earlier this week, the tumor was gone.

Stay encouraged! Blessings, Christy
