On May 30th 2016 , we were confronted with the hardest of news: our 2 month old bundle of joy had a brain tumor.
We flew to Denver to seek special treatment at the Children's Hospital. She was scheduled the next day for biopsy surgery, in order to take a sample of the tumor. The tumor was found to contain a great deal of fluid, and her head cavity was also drained. Later on we received the results of the biopsy. The tumor is called anaplastic ependymoma, a very uncommon and aggressive malignant tumor in children, especially in her, as it is located in the occipital lobe of the brain, an area which controls cognitive function.
On June 9th our little fighter went through the full surgery to remove all of the tumor. The tumor was exceedingly large and had deformed her brain. After the surgery an MRI revealed that a small bit of the tumor was left deeper in the brain. Doctors still have yet to decide if they want to surgically remove the rest of this tumor or treat it with chemotherapy.
Any donations that you would like to contribute towards her special care and assisting us would mean a lot to our family.
