Little word from Zara's parents

"August 30, 2013. Worst day to date. Neurologist explains that Zara, age 5, has been losing her words and memory as a result of a primary brain tumour. Devastated. All light had gone from our lives and hearts.

September 4, 2013. Today is the 6th day in the hospital. Tomorrow is her surgery to remove the tumour. We are not sure if the tumour is malignant yet. We are hoping for the best, but still planning for a long road to recovery. We are not sure how long we will be off of work and will most likely have extensive medical costs (to add onto our recent child birth costs for Annika bhaini, little sister). We thank those who have already been so generous and in advance for those who have a desire to help is in this time of need. Your kindness is so touching and we appreciate you more than you will ever know.

On September 19 we learned that the tumour is called a PXA, with BRAF Mutation. The specific type is extremely rare, malignant, and high grade. Since this diagnosis Zara has been accepted for treatment at St. Judes Children's research hospital. Her mom, Arpana, has stopped working to stay with Zara in Memphis and Zara's dad, Jeremy, is regularly traveling back and forth between Indianapolis and Memphis. Little sister, Annika is staying in Indianapolis with grandparents."
