Tiago’s Story

“We’re done with Tiago’s treatment, but other families are still in it,” says Geo, Tiago’s mom. “I can’t just take my miracle and turn away. I want to be there and help others get through it, too.”

On a sunny afternoon in April 2016, Conan Viernes was taking advantage of the nice weather and laying down rocks in the front yard of his family’s Wapato, Washington home. Then, his cell phone rang. The call came from the pediatrician of Conan’s 2-year-old son, Tiago.

Tiago had been a typically healthy child until a couple months earlier when he started having sporadic fevers. A few weeks later, he woke up with a limp. Conan and Geo, Tiago’s mom, thought he’d strained a muscle or slept on it wrong. But days later, Tiago’s day care provider called and said Tiago had woken up from a nap and couldn’t walk. Tiago’s pediatrician diagnosed him with cancer.

“I started shaking with anxiety and saw this visceral red go through my body,” Conan remembers. “I thought ‘Oh God, what are we going to do? Is my boy going to survive?’”

When the Viernes family arrived at Seattle Children’s two days later, Tiago’s skin had begun to yellow and his eyes were discolored. After a day of tests, Tiago was diagnosed with stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma.

The disease had spread through Tiago’s body. His bone marrow was filled with so many cancer cells they were bursting out of his bones.

The Viernes family moved from Wapato to Seattle. While Conan was able to relocate his job to Seattle, Geo needed to leave her job to be by Tiago’s side throughout treatment. Thankfully, these impacts to their finances never got in the way of Tiago receiving lifesaving treatment. Thanks to Seattle Children’s Uncompensated Care Fund – a donor-supported program that covers medical costs for families in our region – Tiago's parents were able to focus on what mattered most: caring for their son.    

The Viernes family knew Seattle Children’s was the best place for Tiago to receive treatment. Although neuroblastoma is an incredibly rare disease – affecting only about 600 children in the United States each year – Seattle Children’s is home to some of the most knowledgeable neuroblastoma specialists in the world. Supported by philanthropy, Dr. Julie Park and Dr. Navin Pinto lead clinical trials that improve survival rates for children like Tiago.    

Tiago fought through 18 months of treatment with Seattle Children's team of experts beside him, and today, he’s thriving.

“We’re so grateful to the families who came before us and signed up to test these new treatments without knowing they would help,” says Conan. “Thanks to them, so many more kids are going to beat neuroblastoma, and I hope it’s only going to get better from here.”

During Tiago’s treatment, the Viernes family made strong connections with other families whose children were also diagnosed with cancer. These families fundraise together to support cancer research at Seattle Children's, so more children survive with fewer damaging treatment effects, and the Uncompensated Care Fund, regardless of their family’s ability to pay

“We’re done with Tiago’s treatment, but other families are still in it,” says Geo, Tiago’s mom. “I can’t just take my miracle and turn away. I want to be there and help others get through it, too.”
