Pablove Across America 2011 Day 14 Afternoon Dedication: Isaac Argueta and Josiah Zapata

Isaac was diagnosed with Stage II Wilms Tuor in December 2009 at 8 months old. He is 2 and a half and lives in Riverside, CA. He has shown NED since June 2010. Isaac loves the outdoors and his toy animals and has two sisters and a brother that he adores and loves to annoy at the same time. Josiah was diagnosed with Stage IV Wilms Tumor in December 2008. He is 5 years old and from Nashville, TN! Josiah had one lung nodule that began to grow again in summer of 2010. It was removed in August 2010 and tested positive for Wilms. No other evidence of disease was found, so his team took a "wait & see" approach to beginning relapse chemo. Josiah has continued to be NED since that recurrence was removed. He started Kindergarten this year and had follow-up (non-cancer) skull surgery in early September. Josiah has been exceptionally silly recently, which is a lovely shift from his seriousness.
