Toward the end of 2022, 20-year-old Noah Fjeld of Dilworth began having some symptoms that appeared to be something simple like allergies or a cold such as a stuffy nose and difficulty breathing. After multiple failed antibiotics and steroids he developed a noticeable lump on his neck. A multitude of tests were completed and he was referred to an ENT doctor. At that time it was decided that a biopsy must be completed of the mass in the nasal cavity and the removal of the oversized lymphnode in his neck. The results of these tests confirmed the unthinkable. Noah was diagnosed with Paranasal Carcinoma. He is going to have a very long road ahead of him in getting the needed treatment. He will need to receive Proton Radiation which is only available at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN which is over 300 miles away from home.

To compound matters his mother, Sarah (Elstad), is currently fighting cancer for the second time in five years. In 2017, she was diagnosed with stage 3 Breast Cancer. After countless radiation and chemotherapy treatments, and several surgeries, she was cancer-free for four years. However, in 2021 she began having some very concerning symptoms and ultimately ended up being diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer. There is no cure and she will need to continue with treatment for the rest of her life.

This road is going to be a long one which will be emotionally, physically, and mentally draining. And, of course, this is going to be financially draining.  Money raised will be used for medical, travel and lodging expenses.  Lend A Hand Up will increase the generosity of your gift 20% when you donate to his online fundraiser.  Cash/Check gifts must be made payable to Josh or Sarah Fjeld and dropped by Gate City Bank | 1119 9th St E | West Fargo, ND 58078.

Thursday he had his first chemotherapy infusion which lasted for eight hours. We stopped by last night to bring him some Reese's peanut butter hearts (he says the shapes always taste better than the regular cups...I have to agree) and some very generous gift cards provided by individuals that support Dakota Medical Foundation. He was looking a bit rough when we were there but he took one of his nausea medications and was then able to sit down and eat some dinner. Today he is up and says he's feeling pretty good. He ate some breakfast (and Reese's hearts) and perked right up! We ask everyone to continue to keeping Noah lifted in prayer.";}

    First chemotherapy infusion

    01/27/2023

    NOAH UPDATE 1/27/23 – Noah had his port placed on Wednesday. Everything went as planned. Thursday he had his first chemotherapy infusion which lasted for eight hours. We stopped by last night to bring him some Reese’s peanut butter hearts (he says the shapes always taste better than the regular cups…I have to agree) and some very generous gift cards provided by individuals that support Dakota Medical Foundation. He was looking a bit rough when we were there but he took one of his nausea medications and was then able to sit down and eat some dinner. Today he is up and says he’s feeling pretty good. He ate some breakfast (and Reese’s hearts) and perked right up! We ask everyone to continue to keeping Noah lifted in prayer.

He will be having surgery to place his port on Wednesday and will then begin chemotherapy on Thursday. The first round will be six to eight hours. Eight days later he will have the next infusion but it will be a shorter one. He will then have eight days off and then resume the cycle. Keep those prayers coming for both of them as they keep up this fight! P.S. Be watching the page as I plan to be sharing the updates over here! Also, keep an eye out for other fundraising efforts that may come to fruition in the near future!";}

    Noah and Sarah met with the Oncologist today regarding his treatment plan. He will be having surgery to place his port on Wednesday and will then begin chemotherapy on Thursday. The first round will be six to eight hours. Eight days later he will have the next infusion but it will be a shorter one. He will then have eight days off and then resume the cycle. Keep those prayers coming for both of them as they keep up this fight!
