Anastasia's Medical Fund

Brent, Lenee, Chase and Anastasia were a very happy, young, growing family. Two weeks ago family members noticed that 8-month-old Ana was not acting like herself. She stopped reaching for items/toys that were in front of her. She was unable to react to light or familiar faces.

Brent and Lenee were obviously concerned and brought Ana to her pediatrician. The pediatrician was also concerned and sent Ana to an eye specialist, who saw no abnormalities in her eyes. He referred the family to a neurologist. Their worst fears were confirmed, 8-month-old Anastasia was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.

Ana recently had a procedure that enabled some of the fluid from her brain to be drained. This procedure also included some biopsies. In spite of all of the tests and procedures Ana has endured,  there are multiple tests that still need to be done in order to try and find another course of treatment. Brent, Lenee, 4-year-old Chase and little Anastasia have a long road ahead of them.

We are asking for financial support to help them with their mounting medical bills and most importantly we are asking for your prayers for this young family. Thank you and God bless.

Please continue to keep Ana in your prayers. A little over two weeks ago Ana underwent surgery to remove part of her brain tumor. The doctors in NYC were able to remove 50% of the tumor.

Since the surgery it has been a long road for Ana and her family. Ana lost the ability to walk and sit up on her own. She was rushed by ambulance to New York Presbyterian Hospital late Tuesday night due to severe dehydration and a blood clot on her brain.

Ana and her family need our continued prayers.

Please continue to keep Ana in your prayers. She is in the ICU at NY University. She was extremely lethargic and slept 22 out of 24 hours. Dad and Mom drove all night to NYC. She is scheduled for surgery on Tuesday to try and remove part of the tumor, however they have to try and remove some of the fluid first. That procedure is more dangerous than the actual brain surgery. Please pray for Ana and her family.

Please continue to pray for Anastasia, who is now 18 months old. The tumor continues to grow, despite numerous rounds of chemotherapy. We are waiting for a surgery date in NYC with a specialist, who believes that trying to remove some of the tumor can buy Ana some time.

I know it's been a while. Ana is still receiving treatments. She started occupational therapy and speech therapy. Monday she had an MRI to check if the cyst that was drained came back.
Ana no longer responds to light and is seeing an eye doctor today.
On April 1st there will be a benefit for Ana at the Sanborn Fire Hall. More details to come.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
