Prayers and good thoughts for a real trooper

A little boy in Philadelphia is fighting for his life today. His name is Dante. He is 17 days younger than Brody.

He has neuroblastoma. His mom, Jo, has already had one son die. Dante has been fighting this awful cancer since December 2007.

We thought Dante was about to turn the corner, then last week the bottom fell out. The cancer has spread. There is one treatment left: MiBG. Jo was given the choice of doing no treatment at all, and taking Dante home to die. Or doing the treatment, knowing it might kill him.

They chose to fight, and are doing the treatment, starting today.

The next 24 hours are critical for Dante, to see if he survives and can handle the radiation levels of the treatment.

If you pray, please pray for Dante. And if you don't pray, please think good thoughts for him.
