We will do this!
In February 2019 we noticed “gapping” episodes in our 8 year old Matthew. His pediatrician called them absence seizures and referred us to a numerologist who diagnosed “focal” seizures and ordered MRI and EEG. We were so scared when we were told that a mass was on his brain and absolutely terrified discovering the golfball sized tumor on the right frontal lobe. The surgeon was confident that he could remove it and that it appeared low grade. Given different treatment options we elected to schedule immediate surgery which was conducted on March 8th with blessed success! The biopsy results showed a grade 2 diffused astrocytoma and the only present treatment is frequent MRIs to confirm no reappearance. We already knew Matthew is brave and tough but didn’t see just how strong until he has to fight this. We are so thankful that a cause like this exists to continue supporting tumor research and treatment.
