'Without the funding for pediatric cancer research I probably wouldn’t have a family.'
8-year-old Edie and her mom Emily have a special bond — they both survived the same type of cancer.
They were both diagnosed with neuroblastoma within a few years of each other. However, the ways their cases were discovered were vastly different.
It all started when Edie was only 5 months old. She began to cry all the time and lost her appetite. Her parents, Emily and Nick, took her to the pediatrician a number of times, but he kept telling them it was just a stomach flu, nothing serious.
