Wiersma Family Blog

A glimpse into our lives as a family with micro-preemies. Our twins boys (Lovingly referred to as our Miracle Men) were born almost 16 weeks early.

Our journey continues when our son Max was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 3. This is his story....

April 17

We are home! Only for 48 hours but we are thrilled to under one roof.
Max will go back to Helen DeVos Thursday for what we call "Chemo Weekend." He will be admitted and get chemo Thursday, have a recovery day Friday, and then Chemo again on Saturday.

Max is very happy to be home. He isn't real playful but I can tell he is less stressed. He just sits on the couch and watches Wes run around. Once in a while Wes will bring him a toy, but it is pretty much just observing.


  1. Praying for you and picturing the 9th floor. So Max!

  2. So glad you guys were able to get a break at home. Hope it recharges your batteries for the marathon weekend ahead.

    Love you all!

  3. Thats cute that Wes is giving him toys :) I bet it must be confusing for a 3 year old to have his brother home for a day or two then Mommy and Max gone again. We have your little men on our pray for a miracle board! Praying for all of you, and the wonderful medical staff at Devos.

  5. The picture of both boys is adorable.
