Two months ago, I noticed that the right side of my face was getting bigger. Something mysteriously grew inside my cheek so we went to the doctors to have it checked. I had 3 CT scans (head, neck and neck again) and an incision biopsy 3 weeks ago to extract a sample that would let the doctors study about my illness and ever since then, I have been staying in the hospital with my family.
Today, the doctors were finally able to name the lump in my cheek which is Cranial Fasciitis. It is a very rare benign fibroblastic tumor of the skull (but mine was found under my cheekbone and some over it - Thank God it didn't reach my brain) where there are only 40 reported cases worldwide! It is not painful but it's causing me to bleed every now and then and so for it to be removed, I have to undergo a very serious operation on Tuesday, October 16 which requires a huge sum of money that's why we are knocking on your generous hearts to spare some for me to help my parents pay for my rapidly growing medical bills.
And most importantly, I hope you can whisper a prayer for me that my little body will be strong enough to endure that kind of operation. It's scary but I know I will get thru this because I am a fighter!
