Meet Naveah

Nevaeh after haircutFrom her family: Naveah would come home every day from school and her arm, leg, head or back would start hurting.  It seemed to be something different every day, so we took her to her pediatrician, who kept saying for three weeks it was just growing pains. She was on Tylenol and Motrin for the 3 weeks for high fevers. We took her to Manteca Hospital, and that doctor told us the same thing.  One night Naveah could not fall asleep.  She kept crying in pain, so this time we took her to Dameron Hospital in Stockton, CA and they found an inflammation throughout her entire body and said that we need to have her seen by a bone doctor. We were then referred to Oakland Children’s Hospital and when we got here they took blood,urine and did all kinds of tests and we stayed for a month and 5 days after ONLY 2 days of being here they told us they were 90% sure it was Neuroblastoma cancer and that’s her story. She’s still being treated for her Cancer and has not yet got in remission:( But we will not give up and she is a fighter:) thank u again.
