At about 3 months ago my David started sleeping more and randomly vomiting. After several trips to the doctor, they were told he
had a stomach virus and it would work itself out. Knowing something wasn’t right and trusting their gut feeling that had been
lingering for a couple weeks, i took him to the Emergency Room, where after an MRI he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. i was
devastated, to say the least, and our world had been forever changed.
After that initial diagnosis, David spent about ten days in the pediatric ICU and another week getting visits from oncology doctors to
assess his case. Doctors discovered that David had an optic glioma in his chiasm, which are generally slow growing, but inoperable.
So far, David has endured three brain surgeries for a biopsy and shunts, MRI’s, countless CT scans, a feeding tube placement and
many more procedures as father i have lost track of. Up until this point, David has received the standard chemotherapy protocol that
has been effective at keeping his tumor at bay.
I set out to people all over the world to support me cos David is about to go for another surgery that will cost $45,000. I need help.
David tumor is growing once again. David receives ongoing chemotherapy treatment to keep his tumor at bay.
