Zoe Cadence means "Rhythm of Life." Zoe is battling a rare auto-immune disease, Opsoclonus Myoclonus Syndrome (OMS), that was caused by Neuroblastoma cancer. She is constantly suffering from symptoms of the disease and side effects of the treatments. She receives treatment at home every day and has chemotherapy once a week. Zoe's test results show severe damage to her bones from all of her medications. But, Zoe has reached a point where we have to get more aggressive with her treatments. We've run out of options and are working with doctors to think "outside the box" for the next step in her treatment. Zoe is currently undergoing a new treatment protocol called plasmapheresis. Our research shows that paired with the chemotherapy, plasmapheresis may allow us to induce a remission for Zoe and possibly a cure. She is an amazing little girl that endures great suffering and pain. She has a beaming personality and an infectious smile. Please keep little Zoe in your prayers.
