Bozeman Boy Now Cancer Free

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

After nearly 18 months of traveling back and forth to Seattle, a 5-year-old boy from Bozeman is happy to be home and cancer free.

"I'm happy to be cancer free," said Caden Shrauger, Cancer Survivor.

Five-year-old Caden Shrauger was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer found in the adrenal gland in March 2012. Since then, Caden has been through a lot.

"They do chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, a bone marrow transplant and immunotherapy," said Pam Shrauger, Caden's mom.

When diagnosed, doctors told Caden's parents he would have a 44% of surviving. Last week, Caden went in for his end of treatment scans and there was no evidence of cancer found in his body.

"We're just overjoyed and relived that we might actually be able to be done with treatment and be able to put this behind us somewhat," said Pam.

Pam said through the entire process, Caden was always remained positive.

"I have lots of energy now that my cancer is gone," said Caden.

"It was tremendously difficult to watch him go through everything. He's a kid and he doesn't know any different and he would end with a smile on his face at the end of most days," said Pam.

Pam said it was a long road to recovery, but it was all worth it.

"It's not a fun road. It was very challenging at times, but to see him happy makes it worth it," said Pam. "He stayed stable for quite a long time, but we were just really happy our greatest hopes had come true."

Caden said he is happy to be home.

"I like to pet cocoa and Madison and go swing on the swings outside," said Caden.

There is a 33% chance that Caden's cancer will re-occur, so he will have to go back to Seattle in three months for a check-up.

Doctors will continue to monitor him over the next five years to make sure the cancer does not come back.
