The good news!
Slater Bushman, a 5-year-old boy from Palm Beach, CA has been battling cancer for over a year. In and out of chemo treatments, he and his family fought the disease tooth and nail.
The bushman family just recently received news that Slater no longer needs chemo treatments – and the video of their celebration has gone viral!
Slater is now in remission from Stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma!
Neuroblastoma is a tumor that arises from out of fetal “neuroblasts” (fetal nerve cells) which in rare cases, have the ability to turn into cancerous cells either as the baby in the womb matures or after his/her birth. Patients with stage 4 disease diagnosed after one year of age are considered high-risk. In stage 4 diseases, the neuroblastoma tumor cells have already spread (or metastasized) to other sites in the body, such as the bone or bone marrow. That was the case for Slater.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN celebrated with Slater’s family as they delivered the good news to them.
“This is the time we get to say, pack your bags, get out that door, you don’t get chemo anymore!” the staff of St. Judes sang over Slater and the family.
Slater’s mother Shari Anne described what happened as a miracle and a gift from God on her Facebook post.
“His disease, a tumor in his abdomen, wrapped around major veins to his organs, kidney, adrenal glands, liver, pancreas. Spread to his bones, his pelvis, all up his spine, into his clavicles, and spread all in his skull. And also spread all into his bone marrow which was mostly made up of diseased cancer cells… it’s a miracle, a gift from God,” Shari Anne stated on the caption.
The video Shari uploaded on Facebook gained over 1.6 thousand views and hundreds of comments, much like the woman who worshipped over a cancer patient that went viral!
