Baby Chris brain tumor surgery
Organized by: Ashley Love
chris love is a 9 month old boy who was diagnosed in February 2016 with a DIPG brain tumor in his brain stem and medulla. This type of brain cancer is inoperable, and can't be cured by chemotherapy or radiation. He is currently in the PICU at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. He is on a ventilator, since the tumor impairs his ability to maintain his airway (swallowing, clearing your throat, making sure things don't go "down the wrong tube" into your lungs). After his most recent admission back to the hospital in May he had a stroke and has been slowly but surely regaining movement throughout his body. He is being treated by several alternative and integrative health doctors that i was fortunate enough to connect with, and he is receiving a myriad of different natural and holistic treatments. None of these things are covered by traditional insurance. I try to work as much as possible while also spending every free minute either with him this means i'am rarely at the same place at the same time. My goal is to get him healthy enough to be off the ventilator and back home breathing freel. Please help donate any amount you can give.
