After being diagnosed with stage IV neuroblastoma when he was only a year old, Trenton Kindred began five rounds of chemotherapy, followed by stem cell harvesting and two tandem bone marrow transplants. Surgeries, infections, sedation, skin rashes, low blood counts and fatigue defined his life. As a result, Trenton ended up living at the hospital for a total of eight months.
But that didn’t weaken his courage. Even during twenty-one consecutive days of radiation, he fought back. His final treatment came in the form of oral chemotherapy, twice a day for 6 months. Trenton’s determination and love of life helped him get through these rigorous challenges and, in 2006, become free of cancer.
