Carson Kile

September 2017

My name is Carson Thomas Kile and I am 2 1/2 years old. On July 26th, I was diagnosed with stage 4 high risk neuroblastoma. That’s when everything completely turned upside down. Every day after, we received worse and worse news. Eventually, I learned the cancer was everywhere in my body including my bones, lymph nodes, and bone marrow. There’s also a tumor so big, it wraps around the main vein in my chest and abdomen which makes it inoperable. I was told I had a very long road ahead of me and I’ll be receiving the most aggressive treatments available, including 9 rounds of chemo, stem cell recovery surgeries, radiation, immunotherapy, multiple surgeries and clinical trials.
