Razak is a NB Warrior!

Our story begins 18th November 2002. Razak’s parents had been married for an incredible 5 years, it was time to stop this honeymoon and start over with a new one a baby. Big brother Rishi wanted a boy so bad I think he actually prayed for once. Sure enough along came Razak. He grew and grew 98% on the charts. He had big chunky legs, a huge smile, and a bigger appetite. At 3 months he got a fewer and his pediatrician recommended a urinary tract work up. He had reflux, but there was also a 4cm renal tumor looming. The hospital was optimistic, saying that with surgery we would never see it again. Every three months we would have a CT scan and workup, everything will be fine.

But, on 1/15/04 we were told the tumor is back. With all those jabs and pokes, he smiles on, and in fact started walking. On 01/22/04 we were told Razak had Stage 4 Neuroblastoma.

Currently, Razak’s scans are clear!

Nikki’s Notes: Razak’s family seems very tight-knit and loving! He has a great older brother and a super cute younger sister! There’s a recent picture of them on his Caring Bridge site! Please visit Razak’s site to see it:
