"I was in shock. I was like…I had no words. He’s just remarkable. But I think everything happens for a reason. So finding a positive in this. I believe he’s going to beat it. I really do."
This is Joseph.
We talked to his grandmother, Paula, as part of a series we are working on with University Hospitals and Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
At 4 years old, Joseph is battling stage four neuroblastoma. He was diagnosed just two months ago.
Neuroblastoma accounts for about 6 percent of all cancers in children. There are about 700 new cases each year in the United States.
