I apologize as it’s been a long time since I've updated this website. We've made more updates to Noah's public Facebook page (I Heart Noah), due to easy access on our smartphones.
Noah's last MRI was in April 2013 and everything was the same. There has been no change since October 2011 (tumor is stable and shunt is working perfectly). Noah has another MRI scheduled June 13, 2013.
Yesterday, Noah sat in the baby pool with his 3 year old and 1 year old sisters playing and having a great time cooling off from the heat. He woke up today feeling good and ready to attend Children's Worship Service, which he attends every Saturday.
As I reflect back to December 27, 2010, I remember that we prayed immediately asking for help and guidance and God led us to Dr. Burzynski. Today, Noah has no symptoms, he's no longer taking steroids and has completed the first grade with Outstanding and Satisfactory grades - reading at the 2nd grade level, already. All of Noah’s doctors say Noah is very unique and doing great – they are almost speechless about how good he’s doing.
We praise God and give Him all the glory because he continues to be Noah’s protector and shield from this illness. We thank God for the Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo), the great support we have from all of you, Dr. Burzysnki and his non-toxic medicine, for keeping His promises about anointing of oil (James 5:14 - Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord), answering our every prayer and Noah’s great progress. Although we pray several times throughout our day, we continue to dedicate 8:00pm every day to specifically ask God to heal Noah. We’ve also not missed a day of anointing of oil since diagnosis. If there is a cure to this awful illness – I can only say it’s having faith, trust and zero doubts in God’s mercy and miracles. God is truly magnificent, the most powerful and the greatest above all.
You can watch our family interview taken early 2012: http://incmedia.org/wpmedia/videos/the-power-of-prayer Noah actually looks completely different as he’s lost a ton of weight soon as he stopped taking steroids. You can see up to date pictures on his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/I-Heart-Noah/155929211124392.
Thank you again for your support and may God shower His abundant blessings to all of you!
