This little man was so full of smiles and LIFE. He just wanted to run around and have FUN. I just loved his spirit and his JOKES. his laughter was contagius for sure. I pray that after his transplant he can get back to being the super hero he was born to be. Running full force and saving the world!
Here is his story. 
Stephen “Duane” is an adventurous 5 year old, how loves dragons, superheroes and playing video games like your average 5 year old. He was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in May 2013 he had what was said to be a simple surgery, became a lifesaving surgery and removal of his right kidney. In May 2015 he had unexplained leg pain, doctors later informed us that he relapsed it spread to his spine and bones and is a Stage 4. He has already gone through 5 rounds of chemo, minor complications along the way he still stays smiling and laughing. He is set for MIBG therapy in a couple weeks and Stem cell therapy that will have him in the hospital for 1 month at a time. With a long road ahead he takes advantage of every break he gets from hospitals. He wishes that as soon as all of his treatment is thru he can build a sand castle for the first time and see Mickey Mouse at Disney world.
