THE STORY:

Raise money to help the Carrasquillo family with medical bills -

On Friday, June 25th Gus was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Gus' type of brain cancer is determined by the type of tumor found which is Medulloblastoma. Gus' tumor is malignant and metastatic, meaning its cancerous and spreading to other areas of his brain and spinal cord. Medulloblastoma is a common brain tumor in children, responsible for 25% of all pediatric brain cancers. About 500 cases are diagnosed annually in the U.S. Usually diagnosed before the age of 10, medulloblastoma occurs in the cerebellum, a portion of the brain that plays a vital role in coordinating muscular movements. Tumors grow quickly and can invade neighboring portions of the brain. If tumor cells get into the CSF, medulloblastoma can spread to other areas of the central nervous system. This is certainly the case with Gus as seen in his MRI.

Thanks to all of you out there for continued prayers, meals, groceries, errand running, donations, etc. We are so blessed to have the support of so many wonderful family & friends.
