Dominic Update 4.0
Hi everyone! I can’t believe that we are on the cusp of Labor Day and summer coming to a close. The last five to six months have been a total blur and this summer, in particular, has flown by. There’s been hospitals (chemo, stem cell harvest, surgery), clinic appointments, and driving back and forth to New York.
But, one foot in front of the other and one day at a time, we are grateful to be heading into a new season with a strong boy and hearts full of hope.
Dominic had a busy first few weeks of August
🔍 First, he had a new set of scans (MRI + MIBG) plus another bone marrow biopsy. The scans still show disease throughout his bones but most of the spots are “dimmer” than before, and the bone marrow involvement decreased by over 50%.
So, there is still work to do, but there is an improvement. And! Dominic did both of the scans without anesthesia (he has been sedated previously because you have to lay completely still and the MIBG is over 2 hours). He’s a rock star.
🏥 Next, he had his first round of immunotherapy. The antibody he’s given targets the protein of neuroblastoma cells and since they usually sit on nerve cells, there is significant nerve pain accompanying the treatment. The infusion is short (45 minutes) but intense.
There is a lot of pre-medication and pain management during and after, and he would basically sleep the entire rest of the day afterward. But, the treatments are outpatient so no hospital stays, and they don’t impact counts like chemotherapy, so no neutropenia or blood or platelet transfusions.
🦸♂️ Then, he crossed off another big hurdle… radiation. He did this awake with no anesthesia as well… twice a day for five days, he was strapped down using a special mask that was molded to his head and upper body to keep his head and neck in the exact same position each time (his clavicle was radiated due to the cluster of diseased lymph nodes that were there, as well as the tumor bed in his abdomen). An amazing woman who works there has the kids pick what they want their masks to be and then custom paints them… Dominic chose Iron Man. There are some incredibly special people in this world.
He could also pick whatever music he wanted to be piped in each time and chose Christmas music every day 💕🌲 He totally rocked it and the people working there were absolutely phenomenal.
➡️ Next… we get to be home for a couple of weeks, then it’s back to NY for another round of immunotherapy, a new set of scans, and another bone marrow biopsy.
📘 In the meantime, he started kindergarten this week! He’ll be joining class virtually until his oncologist gives him the go-ahead to attend in person, which we’re hoping will be late September.
💈 His eyebrows, eyelashes, AND hair have all started growing back! He’s had a ton of energy, has gained back all of the weight he lost after surgery and that last round of chemo and is otherwise doing really, really well.
❤️ Thank you all for your continued prayers, it means so much to our family.
In other news, I am planning to get some emails scheduled out heading into the fall and holiday season to refresh some site content. So, you can look forward to me popping into your inbox more regularly in the coming months 🎉
Fantastic! It’s so happy to see Friday Things this morning!
So wonderful to hear how well Domenick is doing. He certainly is a Rock Star and an inspiration! Hopefully moving forward the family can stop holding their breaths and enjoy Autumn and all the holidays. So much to look forward to.
Sending much love and prayers

I am very happy to see Dominic doing so well. What an amazing boy! You are also amazing parents.
18 years ago this summer I spent with my son doing a version of that extremely painful immunotherapy at MSKCC (was mouse antibodies back then) – I have to admit, I was sad to hear it is still so painful and there are more kids doing it still. Hugs to you – it is hard for people to fathom what it is exactly we have to put our kids through and they are the toughest of the tough!
I so happy to hear how well Dominic is doing! He is such a brave boy. I still cry when I read your updates because what he’s going through just breaks my heart for him and for your family. Many prayers coming your way.
So happy to see this update. Prayers continue for Dominic and the rest of your family…

This has made my day Michelle, you and your family are never to far from my thoughts. He sure is a rock star! The strength we gain from seeing our children being so strong and brave in their weakest moments. A true reflection on you and your husbands nurturing, love and time. Thankyou so much for continuing to share with us, continued prayers for you all ❤️🙏 well done Dominic 💗
Continuing to pray for Dominic and his family. God bless everyone and thank you for the update.
May God bless Dominic and your precious family. I agree with Teresa, do not worry about new posts! Just updates on Dominic will be appreciated so our prayers can be focused. Dominic is an inspiration for us all!!!!!!!
So glad to hear Dominic is doing better. Sending prayers.
Michelle, Thank you for updating all your many followers on what the current status is of your precious son. Many, many prayers are out that for you and your family. As a cancer survivor, I know my journey was made easier by the love & support that surrounded me. The one wish I have for you and your husband, as parental caregivers- PLEASE take care of the relationship you two have. It is so easy to give all your love and attention to the child who has the health challenges. God bless you and ALL the people who are supporting you and your family!
He is amazing. I don’t think you should worry about writing new posts. Unless it is therapeutic for you! Otherwise just repost something and we can all just like it to help you.
Do what is best for you but know that you are all in my prayers.
St Dominic, pray for your little namesake. He’s a star!
I am overjoyed to hear that Dominic is doing better. Your family is amazing and he is such a brave boy! I don’t think I could go through all that with smiles and in the good spirits you describe.
More prayers that he continues to improve daily and wishing you and yours a calmer rest of the year.
My husband and I are continually praying for Dominic and your entire family.
God has blessed you all in so many ways. HE has given Dominic so much strength and such compassionate care workers. HIS love and mercy will continue to be showered on you all.
I am praying right now in the name of JESUS CHRIST for complete healing for your sweet boy!! God is good all the time, all the time God is good! Also that you may know what a great MOMMY you are going in so many different directions at once, GOD SPEED!!
So glad Dominic is doing better. He is such a strong little man. Will continue to keep him and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
Take care :)
I am overwhelmed by what Dominic and each of you have been through up to this point and continue to go through. As a breast cancer survivor 5 years out I absolutely know what you mean about the blur and I believe that is God’s way of protecting us. But that was MY cancer and not my baby’s cancer. Totally different ball game for a parent/mom to watch her baby face this really big thing and stand up to it and manage it like only a child can. Just completely amazing – ALL of you!
I’ll say it again: God is GOOD ALL the TIME!!!
Thanks for the update! Great new!
Sunday at Church I lit a candle for Dominic, what a trooper your little guy is! 😉🙂
Prayers and love to Dominic and your family.
So happy to see that Dominic has showed improvement. He is fortunate to have such a caring and loving family. I will continue to pray for him and for you to continue to be so strong. God bless!
Dominic is an amazing little guy! Our thoughts and prayers are and have been with you all!
Oh my, what a very special little man you have! It takes an army to go through everything that y’all have been through and amazing how well he is doing. Prayers out to each of you for strength and that GOD continues to watch over Dominic.
I can’t tell you how often I’ve thought of you guys over the last month or so! What a strong little boy you have there. I’m praying for him and for the rest of your family!
Dominic looks wonderful!!!
He has been through a lot for such a little guy. We keep him in prayer everyday. May GOD grant you and yours the joy of a healthy boy once again.
Much love to you and your family.
Continued prayers for Dominic. So glad that there are special people looking out for all his needs.
Such encouraging news. So glad to hear he’s doing so well. I’ll pray for his continued success against this horrible disease.
Thx for the update. He’s a trooper! I know how hard this is for you all to watch this child go through all this. Sending prayers and strength to you all, especially Dominick. 🙏🙏🙏💕💕
Dear Dominic, Michelle & family.
I can’t imagine what you have gone through, but I know God is on your side. I’ve never seen such strength in a family, but I know also that this kind of strength is what gets you through such heartache.

They only know one way and they deal with each thing as it comes along. Your Dominic is one of these amazing children. As you know we are all praying for you and your wonderful family. 💕💕
May you continue to feel the love and warmth of our Lord as he lifts you up, holds you and gives you the strength, grace and love that you and Dominic need this during this difficult time.

Oh my gosh, I started to tear up when I saw the new post…before I even started reading!
Once I finshed, I was full on weeping. The extrodinary strength of your dear son is so inspirational. HIs little body has been through so very much but clearly, his spirit is strong and he is fighting with everything he has. He truly is an Iron Man!
I continue to pray daily for Dominic and your whole family…with special requests to St. Rita. Having taught kindergarten for many years, I am excited for Dominic to start. I know it will be an extra layer of support as I know he teacher and classmates will surrond him with love as well. That Iron Man Cage brace will make a great Show& Tell item!

Dominic is such a brave soul! Prayers for continued good news updates for all!
So happy to hear of Dominic’s continued progress! He is amazing and with the fantastic support of you and the family – he is going to kick cancer’s butt! I live in Manhattan, so when you are up here and need a break, I am here for you, just let me know.
I’ve been following you before kids and love your family and watching the little ones grow. I was heartbroken to learn about Dominic, and always looking for updates as to his progress. Dominic has always seemed like an old soul to me, and he has been so brave with his treatments. He is quite the little man! God bless Your family and continued success with Dominic’s treatments and prognosis.
So funny you say that because one of the radiation techs told me towards the end of the week that he is so mature for his age and just really struck her as an old soul ❤️
Thank you so much for update. Praying for his recovery. He is a fighter. God please continue to help him get through this. And continue to keep family strong.
Thank you for the update. Continued prayers for Dominic and your whole family.
It is so good to hear this update . Dominic is a special little guy. I am praying for him and the entire family.
Good to hear is doing so well. chemo and radiation are terrible. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
I am so happy to see Dominic’s improvement. I am a cancer survivor myself and I am confident God will heal Dom as He did me! Keep it up, there’s an army of earthly angels praying and fighting alongside you.
With all my love and positivity,
What an amazing young man. So happy there is some improvement and prayers for even better news going forward. God is so good 🥰🙏🏻
Thank you for the Dominic update. Through Dominic’s illness and voracious treatments, and your sharing, it a shining burst of hope and encouragement for him, you, and our own lives. May God bless you abundantly!🙏❤️
You should look into Dr. Lorraine Day. She got rid of her cancer by changing her diet.
1 vegetable juice using the norwalk juicer (kale and apple juice and then carrot and apple juice) for a total of 12 vegetable juices and one orange juice using all organic fruits and vegetables. 3 meals throughout the day with 60-75% of her food raw. And she sprouted grains and legumes like lentils. All organic also. Health begins with diet. NO meat, chicken, egg, dairy. The diet needs to be completely vegan with the juices because it is a way for the body to get the nutrition without having to digest the food.
Wow, he is a Rockstar! And you’re going to rock kindergarten too!
Thank you for the update. Continued prayers for strength and healing for Dominic.
Best Wishes to you and your family. My thoughts are with you and prayers for Domenic.
It has always been a treat to see your little ones growing up. I don’t always look at recipes but didn’t ever miss a chance to see the kids. Now I admire the way you have kept us up to date with Dominic’s health challenges and progress. You have a lot on your shoulders but still include us. I’m so happy he has gained a little weight and has more energy. You can probably breathe just a little deeper today too. You have a wall of defense around your family as so many of your readers remember you in their prayers daily. I am a mother of four myself so I know the many ways in which your children are deeply tied into your heart, now and always.
Please tell little Iron Man how much we all care, and tell yourself that you are a good Mom, because that’s the truth.
So thankful D is showing improvement through the treatments. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. ❤️
Continued prayers for your truly Heroic Son. What an amazing young man. Praying for you and all of your family as well. Take it one day at a time. ❤️
Thank you for the prívele of sharing your family story with us! You are inspiring to say the very least!
I prayed throughout this email as I read the good news about Dominick. You got this “Iron Man”. Dominick is a testimony to God’s healing power and love.
Your words and pictures of that strong, beautiful boy brought tears to my eyes. Thankful for the positive progress and amazed at the strength Dominic shows in enduring this process with such courage. Prayers continue for your entire family.
Wonderful news, Dominic is an amazing boy! My continued prayers for all of you 🙏🙏
So happy for you and your family. I’ve been through some of these treatments myself and it’s not fun! Also know a young boy who had neuroblastoma at 3 and he just turned 16!!
Hang tough best you can. Your son is amazing. He will get better surrounded by all this love and support.
And have to tell you I’ve got all your recipes saved !! Soo good.

Thank you so much for the update on Dominic. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Dominic is a strong little boy he is so brave. Know that many prayers are being said for him. May God bless your family during this difficult time.
The last two years I have had to have 6 major surgeries. It took everyone around me as well as myself down some difficult roads. As a Mom I so feel for your family. My Rock was Jesus. Prayer Matters and God answers our prayers. He walks with you. Lamentations 3:22-23. Blessings on you. Hang in there.
I pray that Dominick has a return to a healthy body without too much pain and discomfort on his cancer journey. It looks like you have an incredibly strong little boy! I know how terrifying it is to have a son with cancer. My son Kyle was 15 when he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2018 and spent a lot of time at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Kyle battled for 22 months before he was taken and I miss him every day. Stay positive and keep putting one foot in front of the other. They have made great strides with neuroblastoma. In fact, I am family friends with Dr. Kim
Kramer at MSK and I know she successfully treats many children . Also, my friend Dena’s son was treated at MSK in 2008 and he’s doing great now! Check out her website , Arms Wide Open. http://www.awoccf.org Sorry for my ramble. Just know that I’m sending you some of my “mom strength”
My prayers are still with all of you and to Dominic a VIP Blessing. What a trooper Dominic has been as well as all of you. He always has a smile for you. You can’t help but smile yourself. Bless all of you, we all Thank You for sharing. Best Wishes, Paulette in Ohio…
Sending lots of love and hugs to your sweet boy! We’re 🙏 praying for him everyday and hope that each day will bring more improvement
Continued prayers as Dominic marches through such a tough time. May he continue to do so well — with success as end result. He is so cute. Prayers for you and your family as you continue on this journey. Love and endless prayers.

Glad to hear that he’s doing well. Hoping for more good news.
Dominic is a most precious ‘fella’. To hear when his challenge appeared – so many people not only love what you have created online – such outstanding different dishes – but need what you create – I know the information about Dominic you sent out – without question it deeply affected all those who read all you send out – such delicious things. Then to learn this is one hugely brave brave young person – what he has had to go through – learning today how enormous his braveness is – this is one totally amazing young person – how astounding his braveness is. He will recover – already significant improvement to hear.
Praise the Lord , continue to pray for all of you , reports are good . So glad kids can receive immunotherapy, what a gift that is.
He is a great brave man
Enjoy this period of being home

What a special boy you have there. He comes through after each treatment stronger and always has a smile on his face. You have a very strong family cheering Dominic on. As well as your Facebook family. Continously sending prayers your way. We’ve all been touched deeply following along with Dominic’s journey. Thank you for sharing something so personal with the rest of us. There really is good in this world. Just have to keep looking for that shining star above.
Prayers for you and your amazing, strong, brave boy! 🙏❤️
