11 month old's brain tumor caused bleed

my 11 month old was diagnosed with PNET in his chest and spine at 5 weeks old he has had 4 surgeries to remove the tumor which they did and 11 cycles of chemo to make sure it didn't come back he only had 3 cycles of chemo left and he would of beendone with the chemo. Then on Monday he went unresponsive and quit breathing he was flown to a local childrens hospital where they found a massive bleed in his brain and took him into emergency surgery. It turns out there was another tumor in the brain that developed while he was on chemo and that is what caused the bleed. It has left permanent damage and he is in a coma on life support now, with some very difficult decisions ahead of us I ask that you please pray for our family.

So sorry to hear about your son. I have a son with leukemia for 18 months now and question every day why this happens to innocent children. Life is not fair. I will say prayers for your son and hope that God has a good plan for him. God Bless.

My son is also 11 months old and has congenital Ewing's Sarcoma. It sounds like we have been on similar paths this past year. My heart and my thoughts are with you. I am praying for your son and your family.
May God bless your baby and may the spirit of God flow through him to heal him on his journey back to wholeness.
Courage, Strength, Hope, Peace and Love,

I am so sorry for your loss and it tears my heart apart to think of the pain and sickness your precious boy had to suffer in his so, so short of life in this world.
I lost my 14 yr. old daughter (my baby of 5) to a blood clot in her brain caused by AML leukemia that we never knew she had until 15 days before she went to heaven a year June 5th. So I will definitely think of your son this time every year.
My baby girl loved her younger nephews and nieces and I like to picture her in heaven where I know she is, holding the babies and playing with the children smiling and loving them all.
We too were forced to take her life support off and as a parent it is the hardest thing I have ever done in my whole life, I am 46. It makes me feel like I killed her tho I know I didn't and her daddy blames himself also.
You have a beautiful baby boy! He will be beautiful for eternity now.
I don't know for sure, but I like to think that since God, the angels and the bad angels can see and hear us that our loved ones who passed can see and hear us also. I talk to my baby girl all the time and long for the day I get to hold her in my arms again. I have been told by many parents that lost children of all ages that the pain never goes away, so you and I have a long hard road ahead of us, we are not alone, we have each other and our Inspire friends to help us thru.
If you ever need to talk I am always here to listen and feel your pain with you.
Our baby's are better now and will never be ill again. I will pray for you and your family, I know I sure need prayers to help me thru.
God Bless you and your family!
