Our Brennan’s Buddies have moved HERE. Be sure to check them out!
The following pages will tell the story of Brennan’s treatment
Brennan officially diagnosed with Stage IV High Risk neuroblastoma.
He began his first of 5 rounds of chemotherapy.
April 9, 2011
Mccowen and Scurlock’s life has been turned upside down. We have seen little Brennan sick and in pain from the chemo and cancer. We have seen him cry from the daily injections. We cry because there is nothing we can do to take it away. We have also seen the love and happiness when he feels good. We have seen all the good people and foundations that have prayed for him and helped our family in this fight for his life. It has opened our eyes to the horror that is childhood cancer!
No child should have cancer!
May 26, 2011 Brennan’s Birthday
Brennan spent his 1st birthday in surgery to remove the tumor on his left kidney, adrenal gland & the diseased lymph nodes surrounding the abdominal aorta.
Stem cell harvesting
15 rounds of radiation treatment totaling 3 weeks.
September 12, 2011
In-patient @ Texas children’s until about Oct. 20 for high dose chemo. And stem cell replacement. This will be the hardest on his little body, and some of the family because he can't have visitors due to his immune system being wiped out.
October 5, 2011
Some not so good news.
A new MRI compared to August’s shows the tumor on his cerebellum which had shrunk from the first series of chemo has since grown. Not sure what it will mean for his
treatment plan yet. Some extra prayers will sure help.
October 10, 2011
The plan is back into radiation next week for the tumor on Brennan’s skull. We don't know yet how many treatments will be needed
October 14, 2011
Brennan comes home today!
His new MIBG scan showed no findings of new or progressive metastatic disease! Which is VERY good news. Now just a week more of radiation and then Brennan’s last phase of treatment. By this time next year he will be in REMISSION!
