THE STORY:

Albert’s Story Two weeks after his 5th birthday, Albert started complaining of headaces, 5 days later he was dxed with medulloblastoma, he has had 2 surgeries, total resection, spinal tap clear, 6 weeks of Rads and two rounds of high dose Chemo. Two weeks after his 5th birthday, Albert started complaining of headaches, 5 days later (April 8th 2015) he was diagnosed with medulloblastoma. He has had 2 surgeries, first one at CHKD in Norfolk (April 22nd) claiming total resection. They also claimed to have put back the bone flap they had removed. After some research we decided to send Albert To St Judes Childrens Hospital in Memphis. Once there, they ran their own MRI, and found more tumor that had been missed by CHKD. A second surgery was scheduled for May 13th at Labonour childrens hospital in Memphis to remove the rest of the tumor. The surgeon there also told us that the bone flap had NOT been replaced, but it would grow back itself in time.He then went back to St Jude for 32 treatments of Radiation, he tolerated that very well, only throwing up once or twice and no loss of energy After the radiation, he got 30 days at home, was a very pleasant month for the whole family. He was returned to Memphis on Oct.2nd to begin 4 cycles of chemo. Each cycle lasts about 4 weeks.With your support we can continue to find the best treatments for Albert.Thanks
