Dominic Update 5.0
Happy October, friends!
I hope you have all had a wonderful start to fall and are enjoying the cooler temperatures and beautiful fall days.
I’m popping in today with a new Dominic update. Thank you all so much for your emails, the cards and gifts that you’ve sent, and all of the prayers you’ve offered up; our family appreciates it all so very much ❤️
The Latest Treatments and Scans
After Labor Day, Dominic had his second round of immunotherapy treatment, followed up by a new set of scans and a bone marrow biopsy in mid-September.
We got very encouraging news… the scan showed that 50% of the cancer has cleared, which is the biggest move of the needle that we’ve seen so far.
The full-body radioactive scan done for neuroblastoma is called an MIBG scan and it is given a “Curie score” – 10 segments of the body are scored 0 to 3, based on how much cancer is present, which means the highest score it can show is 30. In May, Dominic’s score was 27; after surgery and prior to beginning immunotherapy, his score was 26. After the second round of immunotherapy, this most recent scan showed a score of 13.
His bone marrow biopsy showed what the doctor called “just a trace” of neuroblastoma cells, a reduction from the previous 5 to 10%.
We pray that the immunotherapy treatments continue to be this effective and that he will soon be completely cleared of the cancer that remains.
Dominic will have his third round of immunotherapy the week after next, and then the fourth round about a month after that, followed by another set of scans.
Immunotherapy, unlike chemotherapy, does not cause white counts, platelets, or hemoglobin to drop, so we don’t have to worry about twice-weekly lab work or transfusions. We just need to go into clinic once a week to have his central line dressing changed.
In the Meantime…
Dominic started kindergarten last week! It has made my heart so happy to see him enjoying normal 5-year-old life, showing us the papers he’s worked on, and talking about the little things that have happened during the day.
After spending the last six months going back and forth from hospitals, inpatient stays for chemotherapy, surgery, endless clinic visits, transfusions, radiation, and everything in between, having some normalcy in everyday life has been such a blessing for him.
AND he turns 6 this week! 🎉
You may have seen a couple of new emails from me this last week! Thank you so much for the awesome feedback!
I’m slowly starting to get back into the swing of things and with a slightly more predictable schedule at home, I’m hoping to bring back Friday Things and send you delicious recipes on a semi-regular basis again. Stay tuned 😋
I apologize for my late email, Flu, cold and RSV has hit our families. It is so wonderful to see your precious son’s improvement. We will pray and send positive energy your way. May Dominic be cured and lead a happy and healthy life.

Michelle, thanks for the update. So glad his numbers are improving. Dominic and your family remain in my prayers. Prayer is powerful and so is Hope.
I just remembered that one of my younger sisters had Rheumatic Fever her kindergarten year & missed most of the school year. She bounced right back & continued with her class in first grade. Little kids have so much resilience & are such fighters. I feel Dominic is strong and will beat this cancer. Thinking of your family.
Please send cards to: Dominic Lettrich. PO Box 597, Wexford, PA 15090
Thanks so much for your help. We can do this for this precious little boy!
Many prayers continuing for you and your family… and this little angel.
In tears reading how his numbers are dropping. Prayer is powerful. What a hard year you have all had. You’re doing an amazing job and I know sweet Dominic will be cancer free before we know it. Keeping you all in my prayers.
Your sweet, sweet, boy!
Beyond thrilled for Dominic’s improvement, and these staggering numbers! He is truly my hero, and an amazing little man! You my dear are an inspiration as a mother, as is your love and devotion! That said, my support goes out to you as well, since, as a mother myself, this requires guts of steel to survive. Sending love and support for you both🥰❤️💋!
What a wonderful update. Blessings for all of you and continued improvement for Dominic,
BLESSINGS sent to a brave young boy and his wonderful family. Thank you for updates and I love having you back as my BEB ♥️

So so glad to hear of Dominic’s progress! Praying for him and your family.
Glad to hear Dominic’s improving health results. Will continue to pray for him and your family.
Michelle, you don’t know me but I have been following you since your husband was your chief culinary tester, before you were married. I was heartbroken to learn of Dominic’s diagnosis. My daughter, at 60 years old, had a cancer diagnosis that required an easier course of treatment. My heart goes out to you and your family that Dominic has a full recovery and this time remains in your rearview mirror. You are an exceptional mother and I send every good wish for your future.

Good morning, Michelle
Thank you for sharing the good news about Dominic. I shall keep him in my prayers, and I know prayers are powerful.
I am very aware how difficult it is to live with cancer and conquer it. I had stage four cancer over 22 years ago, and I am still here, thanks to much prayer, excellent doctors, chemotherapy, and radiation. It has to be much more difficult to have your child go through it, and my heart goes out to you. Stay strong and positive, and don’t let anyone pull you down.
Thank you for updating us on Dominic’s steady progress toward a full recovery. Sending. Continued prayers your way. It’s nice to have you all back! You were missed!!!
That’s great news for Dominic/family. Prayers continue daily for you guys. I am praying for another little guy about Dom’s age, he is going to have a bone marrow transplant in the future. Thanks for the update, fall is in the air at our KY. home. Take care and one day at a time. Thoughts and prayers!!
Michelle….thank you for taking time to update us! I had just checked your site the other day to see if I had missed anything.
ALL THIS IS GREAT NEWS!!! Seeing Dominic’s smile made my heart smile! Know that I’m keeping him and your entire family in my prayers.
So happy to hear there is more normalcy in your lives. Praying that Dominic continues on this path of fighting cancer and recovery.
I have been a fan of your blog for at least ten years and enjoy all of the baking tips and updates on your family. Best wishes to all of you 💜.
I am quietly weeping after reading this update. I started when I saw the first picture of your sweet boy…smile still in place. I am more than aware how precious that smile must be for you and your family. I can only imagine how difficult and stressful your days have been but the reward is the great news you seem to be getting with each new set of evaluations. You certainly have one strong, super hero of a child who is in this battle to win it…and he will.
I look forward to the return of Friday Things and updates on Joseph and Isabelle as well. I miss seeing them and the dogs too.
Thank you for sharing your little man and his progress. Seeing that smile has made my day.
What hopeful news! Thank you for updating us. Never worry about how many recipes you can post. We get enough glimpses your life enough to know you do the best you can. That is enough.
None of you will ever be the same. I’m glad Dominic gets to go to kindergarten.

Continuing to pray for you and your family. Thrilling for Dominic to be starting Kindergarten and making friends this year. I am so optimistic for you, as one of my best friend’s granddaughter was diagnosed at 3. She is now 15 and beautiful, curious, and talented and still waving the flag for Childhood Cancer Awareness.

Dominic is young and I’m so happy to see him responding so quickly. He has been through so much and it must be heartbreaking as a parent. Thank you so much for the update, Michelle!

Such wonderful news Michelle. My husband received immunotherapy for 2 years for treatment of his kidney cancer. Latest scans since stopping treatment 6 months ago showed NED (no evidence of disease). I pray the same for Dominic. Happy Birthday Dominic – you’re a rock star!
Such hopeful news! So happy for all of you!
Such encouraging news, God bless Dominic and your entire family! I hope he has a great school year! Happy birthday to your amazing son!
It will be good to see you back online but your family and especially Dominic are the top priority. Prayers are being sent up for you all. This will be a good birthday for your sweet boy. Keep the faith.
Praise God!! I am keeping Dominic in my prayers and you my friend!!
I’m so happy to hear your good news and am glad that Dominic continues to improve. Keep your focus on your family and you will never have regrets. How are the dogs doing with all of this? Your sweet family remains in my prayers.
Excellent news. Celebrate every positive thing!
School time will definitely help get things back to a better normal.
Love to you all.
Hang in there! Prayers still coming in for all of you and for Dominic to have complete healing!! St Therese’ pray for us!! God bless you all and persevere with Hope!
Such good news! So happy for Dominic, you and your family! He is such a happy little boy! I love his smile! Continued prayers….
I feel so nervous and yet hopeful when I see a new email from you but I am so optimistic about the positive news from the recent scans. It’s so great that Dominic can start Kindergarten. Is he actually physically in school or remote? Either way its good that he can concentrate on normal 5/6 year old things like schoolwork. He is always smiling in all of the pictures which is so sweet and brave.
You have so much on your heads and even keeping track of the upcoming appointments for Dominic are so overwelming so I am amazed every time I see a recipe email from you.
Try to enjoy your slightly lighter and more predictable schedule and I sincerely hope that the scans keep getting better and better and you can resume normal family life really soon.
It is so wonderful that you’ve gotten such encouraging news! I hope he has a great time at school, and an amazing birthday. Continued thoughts for you and your family. ♥
Such good news on Dominic’s long journey! Wishing him the best 6th Birthday! was so surprised to see your emails this week Michelle! Love and miss them! I will continue to keep him in my prayers as well as you and your family! Keep us posted!
Thank you for the update. So happy to see him smiling. Continued prayers for your little guy and your entire family. Modern medicine is amazing.
