Lots of Steroids

Before Noah starts chemotherapy he will get about a week of some hefty doses of steroids to calm and suppress his body and immune system.

If you’ve ever been on just moderate doses of steroids like prednisone you might be familiar with some of the horrible side effects. As you can imagine we hate that he has to be on them but it’s a critical part of the treatment. I believe he will stay on them in some form long-term but hopefully nowhere near these current doses.
