How tragic to hear that a child so young would have such a horrible cancer. I think that it is important to research all the possibilities for a cure, and not rely on only one source. Contact many doctors, to come up with the best options. Keep trying.

Also I think that it's important to consider nutritional support. Young children have a tendency to be resilient, and I would think a healthy diet might help. (Although, I believe with chemotherapy eating sometimes can be very difficult.)

My thoughts and prayers are with you....
