March 2, 2011, San Jose: Noah Stout, son of Anthony Stout and Michelle Buensuceso Stout, was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma on December 27, 2010 at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital (Stanford) in Palo Alto, California. Noah is a sweet and loving little four-year-old boy who was playing at home when suddenly he fell and was unable to stand up. His parents rushed him to Regional Hospital where the ER doctors decided to do a CT and MRI to ensure he had no major head injuries. To everyone's surprise, they found a tumor and rushed Noah in an ambulance to Stanford Children's Hospital.
The Stanford Neuro Oncologists reviewed his MRI where he was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a highly malignant inoperable cancer.
According to Dr. Agnes Abellera of San Jose, who used to treat Noah's mother when she was little, said that the only treatment (mainstream medicine) for his type of cancer is intense radiation, but it will leave him deaf with malformed ears, permanent loss of hair, and a lot of terrible side effects. The parents researched and found Dr. Bruzynski, who is a cancer specialist in Houston, who uses non-chemo and non-radiation. However, the FDA has not approved this treatment and no insurance will cover the expense. Treatment costs $7500 a month. His father and friends have already done some concerts in his behalf.
