Mohammes is a 24yo Boy and despite learning of her condition (innoperable brain tumor) only a few days ago... very optimistic and happy.
He was only a few weeks away from her drivers test and super excited because He worked all summer to save enough money to buy her own car. Unfortunately He can't see well enough to do so.
In a very short 5-week period He went from normal and healthly teenager to a kid fighting a serious brain tumor.
It started as double vision which we thought was her eyesight since He had astigmatism. We figured He needed to update her prescription and visited the optometrist.
Within a few weeks It escalated from from vision issues, to occasional headaches, then some mild dizzyness. Eventually He had such bad headaches and we started taking her to the doctor.
First to urgent care, then to the ER, then to her physician and finally to the ER again. In her final visit to the ER they suspected meningitis. The tests were negative and fortunately the Doctor ordered an MRI.
The MRI revealed a tumor attached to her brain stem. This prompted an immediate transfer to Rady Childrens Hospital where further evaluation and additional scans revealed it to be cancerous.
Any funds raised will be used to cover medical bills and ultimately the clinical trials and experimental treatments that will be needed to fight this.
At this point her current treatment will be a combination chemo therapies and immunotherapy which will be supported by cancer fighting dietary changes. Treatments range from $17k to $32k per treament. We have been advised that it will cost around $350k for one year of therapy and drugs.
