Welcome to Skivolo’s Kid Zone
“Hi! My name is Skivolo! I am a young red panda with high-risk neuroblastoma. When I was first diagnosed, I had many questions, such as "Why am I sick?,” "Did I get cancer because I was bad?,” and "Can I play with other kids when I go to the hospital?"
Scroll down to follow me on my journey and learn what it is like to visit the hospital, have tests done, and receive special medicines!
I want you to meet my family! They helped me a lot when I was first diagnosed. Here is my mom, Patrino, my dad, Patro, and my sister, Jenu. They all love me very much and are with me on my neuroblastoma journey.
Part of my neuroblastoma journey included a medicine called antibody (ANT-E-BODY) therapy. This was given to me in the hospital to treat my neuroblastoma.
This is Doctor Kono and Nurse Felicia, who took care of me while I was in the hospital. They explained to me and my family what antibody therapy was and how it worked inside my body.
Hi! I’m Skivolo’s friend, Zara. I’ve finished my neuroblastoma treatment. I can’t wait to tell you about all of the new adventures I’m launching into with the help of my family and healthcare team.
Please look for a special note in my book from my friend Leah Still, daughter of former NFL player Devon Still. Just like me, Leah has finished her neuroblastoma treatment and shares details about her journey.
