I'm here today asking for help, Braden is 19 years old and with the body of a 12 year old.. after severe headaches and vommiting we attend VGH Emerg. He was given CT scan which showed a cyst. But after 3 hour wait a nerosurgeon arrived to say he had a large tumor that required surgery. The MRI the following morning showed a large tumor 4.4 cm with 2 cyst lesions 1.4 and 2.4. He was diagnosed with craniopharyngioma. a rare tumor. The size of the tumor is caused swelling on the back of the eyes. He is awaiting surgery to remove the portion that is not calified then will require radiation.. this tumor has grown on the pituitary gland which has cause growth and hormone delays. he will be out of work for some time. and is having a difficult time! If you can help this very amazing loving and kind young man it would be greatly appreciated! I'm not sure if I have done this right, and hoping I can get him the help and love he deserves!
