A southwest Georgia boy is in need of prayers as he fights a rare form of pediatric cancer. Watch video here IFrame In fall 2014, Kraig and Brittany Vickers learned they were pregnant with a baby boy, but, at 20-weeks, they found out their son had a hole in his heart (VSD). That's when they were referred to the Sibley Heart Center at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta's Egleston location. Once the couple arrived in Atlanta, their baby was also diagnosed with several other heart-related issues, including aortic stenosis and coarctation of the aorta. On March 17, 2015, Kraig and Brittany welcomed Evan Knox Vickers to the world. He weighed 7 pounds, 14 ounces and was 21 inches long. "We knew early in my pregnancy that Evan would be a fighter," Brittany said. Evan came into the world with multiple heart defects and underwent open-heart surgery at just 6-days-old. It was a life-saving procedure, but the surgery left him with brain damage, physical and developmental delays and feeding difficulties. "Despite all things, Evan laughed, played and smiled every day," his mother said. IFrame Four months after Evan's first birthday, he was doing really well, and cardiologists cleared him as a "normal" little boy. "As a parent to a 'heart baby,' this is the best, most terrifying day of your life," Brittany said. "We were relieved that Evan was well enough to receive clearance, but scared to death not to see our cardiologist every month." However, in September 2016, six months after Evan's birthday, Brittany and her husband's world came crashing down again when their son was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. IFrame "His tumor was removed two days before his 18-month birthday," Brittany said. "He was diagnosed with cancer and in remission just seven weeks later." Evan's mother said the quick recovery was amazing, but this January, the cancer relapsed, and he's been in and out of the hospital ever since. "The tumor came back fast and furious," Brittany said. "This time it was occupying 50 to 60 percent of his abdominal area and was classified as Stage 4, high risk" IFrame "He has a long road ahead with battles that no child should ever have to fight, but he's tough," Brittany said. "He's fought every single day of his life with a smile on his face." IFrame Evan is receiving chemotherapy treatments every three weeks at the Aflac Cancer Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. He normally stays at the hospital for five days at a time, and is scheduled to begin his fourth round of chemo on Monday. "I'm certain there is nobody in the world, child or adult, that could handle it any better than Evan has," Brittany told FOX 5. "He's been amazing, an absolute champion!" As Evan completed his third round of chemotherapy, he managed to stay playful, keeping a smile on his face; however, he was quickly transported back to Atlanta last week due to having critically low hemoglobin levels. Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells which carries oxygen throughout the body. Doctors moved Evan to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) after he spiked a dangerously high fever and had a seizure. IFrame "Evan is still neutropenic, meaning he has no immune system to fight this off," Brittany said on the "Fight Like Evan" Facebook page. Brittany told FOX 5 Evan is getting better and starting breathing without any oxygen support last Thursday night. "His blood work still isn't great, but he has improved drastically," Brittany said on Monday. "He's almost back to his normal, playful self." Evan's doctors were able to move him out of the PICU and back to a regular room on the AFLAC oncology floor, but were unable to get rid of his infection. He remains at the hospital recovering. IFrame "It's the hardest thing we've ever been through, without a doubt, but as parents, it softens the blow a little to see Evan fighting this with such a positive attitude," Brittany said. The Vickerses are from Leary, Georgia, which is a small town about an hour from Albany, and four hours from Atlanta. Brittany told FOX 5 they've spent more time in Atlanta this year than they have in their own home. "We also have a 12-week-old little boy who's been forced into a life of following Evan up and down the state for treatments," Brittany said. "They've both been troopers though." Evan will turn 2-years-old on Friday, March 17, and his family is praying they'll be able to celebrate the milestone at their home in Leary. IFrame Loved ones have set up a GoFundMe account to help the family with Evan's medical expenses. If you would like to donate, click here. You can also learn more about Evan's battle against cancer on Facebook and on his CaringBridge site. SEE ALSO: CHOA shares photo of young Falcons fan battling cancer

Emory Healthcare and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta have been working closely on pediatric H1N1 trials as well as many other endeavors. Comments from Dr. Paul Spearman, chief research officer for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and vice chair of research for Emory's Department of Pediatrics, Emory School of Medicine. Background Physician/researchers at Emory University and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta have begun vaccinating children in a clinical trial testing an investigational H1N1 (swine flu) vaccine along with the seasonal flu vaccine. Up to 650 children nationally will participate in the study, and Emory will enroll approximately 100 children, ages six months to 18 years. The clinical trial is being conducted within the Vaccine and Treatment Evaluation Units (VTEUs), supported by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). At Emory, the VTEU is led by Mark Mulligan, MD, executive director of the Hope Clinic of the Emory Vaccine Center. The study will examine the safety of and measure the body's immune response to the H1N1 flu vaccine. In addition, it will help determine how and when the vaccine should be given with the seasonal flu vaccine to make it most effective. It also will analyze potential problems of giving the vaccines together, such as whether one vaccine will undermine the protective power of the other. The answer is important because experts are predicting that both strains of influenza will circulate this fall and winter.

Silas Edenfield June 4, 2008 -- May 25, 2013 Silas Edenfield, age 4 of Lyons, GA, died Saturday, May 25, 2013, at his home surrounded by his family. Silas was born in Hemet, California on June 4 2008, but has lived in Lyons since 2009. Near the end of his life, which was cut short by his battle with Hepatoblastoma, a rare childhood liver cancer, Silas made a request of his family, friends and Facebook fans that people paint their finger and toe nails gold, which is the color designated for Childhood Cancer Awareness. This sparked a campaign that quickly produced a local shortage of gold nail polish, and an impact that, thanks in part to social media, spanned the globe. Silas got the attention of TV stations in Atlanta and Savannah, newspapers around the state, and the winsome boy captured the hearts of newscasters, media personalities, and the office staff of at least one US Senator. Los Angeles area nail polish company O.P.I. even produced a single run batch of "Silas Gold" nail polish for the family. Silas underwent treatment, including chemotherapy, radiation, and multiple surgeries at both Children's Hospital at Memorial in Savannah, Georgia, and Children's Hospital of Atlanta at Egleston. The family is thankful for the tireless effort and dedication that the staff and physicians put into Silas' care, especially Dr. Martin Johnston, who went above and beyond what they would have expected. During his 14 months of cancer treatment, Silas developed a passionate love of sea turtles, so much so that the Georgia Sea Turtle Center of Jekyll Island felt prompted to name one of their rescued turtles after him. Silas was also the Guest of Honor at the Tybee Island Turtle Trot, where his namesake sea turtle was fitted with a satellite tracker and released. Better still than the sea turtles that he loved or the gold nails for which he became famous, is Silas' view of eternity. From the time he was told that his cancer could not be cured, he was not sullen or sad about the news, only impatient to get his new body so that he could return with Jesus to get us all. Details of Silas' journey can be found on his page www.facebook.com/prayingforsilas or his CaringBridge blog www.caringbridge.org/visit/silasedenfield. Silas, who attended First Baptist Church of Lyons with his family, is survived by his parents Archie and Jessica Edenfield and three older brothers Michael, Gideon, and Jason Edenfield; is also survived by maternal grandparents, Jack and Jana Golightly of Gardena, California; paternal grandparents, Michael Edenfield and Patty of Darien, Georgia, and Geraldine Johnson of Lyons; paternal great-grandfather, Robert Edenfield of Waynesville, Georgia; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins. Silas' three passions in life were Jesus, sea turtles, and Childhood Cancer Awareness. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial contributions be made in Silas' memory to one of the following: Gospel For Asia by visiting their website at www.gospelforasia.org, The Georgia Sea Turtle Center www.georgiaseaturtlecenter.org, or Cure Childhood Cancer www.curechildhoodcancer.org. Even though we know that Silas is with the Lord in Heaven, in his new body, no longer suffering, there is still a sense of loss, a sense of deep sadness and the pain of not having Silas with us anymore. Little boys aren't supposed to get sick and die. Death is not supposed to be, but it is because of sin. We have all sinned, and this world is no longer perfect the way God made it to be. Praise God though! He has made a way. All things work together for good FOR THOSE WHO LOVE GOD and are called according to His purpose! Silas was most definitely called! God gave him a purpose! In his 4 years and 355 days on earth he impacted more people than many who have lived 80 years or more! Silas' three passions were Jesus, Childhood Cancer Awareness, and Sea Turtles. Jesus wasn't just someone we talk about in Sunday School to Silas. Jesus was real to Silas. He believed with all of his heart that Jesus loved him and died for his sins. He gave his life to the Lord at a very young age, and although he certainly did not understand everything, he had a child-like faith that all of us should have. May the Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you, the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.
