Noah Stout was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma on December 27, 2010 at Lucille Packard Children's Hospital (Stanford) in Palo Alto, California. Noah is a sweet and loving little four year old boy who was playing at home when suddenly he fell and was unable to stand up. His parent's rushed him to Regional Hospital where the ER doctors decided to do a CT and MRI to ensure he had no major head injuries. To everyone's surprise, they found a tumor and rushed Noah in an ambulance to Stanford Children's Hospital. The Stanford Neuro Oncologists reviewed his MRI where he was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).
Noah is currently a patient of Dr.Burzynski located in Houston, Texas and participating in the Antineoplaston clinical trial. Since Noah lives in the Bay Area, he is also treated at UCSF Hospital in San Francisco, California where he goes for his MRIs and emergency situations. He is seen there by their excellent Neuro Oncology, Neuro Surgery, Radiology, PICU and ER teams.
