This is Caleb van der Westhuizen. Caleb is four years old, and him, mommy Anneva and daddy Warren, lives in Paarl. Caleb is an only child. Caleb was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in Stage 4, on Wednesday the 9th of September. He is currently in hospital. Due to the Neuroblastoma being so far developed and spread already, his mommy and daddy have been given various treatment options, and they have until the end of this weekend to make a decision which route they want to go.
Two of the options include, continuing on the oral chemo he is currently on, which will extend his life with a year to fifteen months, or, to opt for six months of intensive treatment, which will possibly include surgery and radiation, IF his body is strong enough to handle this treatment.
This is not an easy decision to make, and we ask that you keep Caleb and his parents in your hearts and prayer please.
They are still adjusting to the shock of the diagnosis and prognosis, highly emotional and very confused. They can use all the support and love they can get right now.
