|“We were very fortunate that Ryder was blissfully unaware of what was really going on. We tried very hard not to grieve and break down in front of him because we needed to be present for him.” — Parents of Ryder Sternagel, Stage Four Neuroblastoma Survivor|
In this episode, you’ll hear two amazing stories of survival that were made possible by the outpouring of love and support from others. This connection empowered the parents of a one-year-old baby and a single woman in her 60s to overcome aggressive cancers in order to create vibrant, healthy futures.
Ryder Sternagel was only 11 months old when his doctors diagnosed him with stage four neuroblastoma. After deciding to take an integrative approach with his healing, Ryder’s parents discovered that many of their friends, family, and doctors were not supportive of their choice.
So, they created a Facebook group and—encouraged by the support of strangers—found the confidence, resources, and comfort they needed to fuel their son’s recovery. Today, Ryder is cancer-free and approaching his seventh birthday.
Adjunct professor Kathryn Alexander was going through a lot when she was diagnosed with stage three liver cancer. She was divorced, had just lost her son to suicide—and had no health insurance to pay for treatment.
Thankfully, her church community rose up to provide emotional, social, and financial support. Still cancer-free thirteen years later, she credits her incredible recovery to their selfless assistance.
