Elijah's Fight (Relapse)

Elijah was diagnosed originally on June 5, 2012 with Medulloblastoma which is a highly malignant brain tumor. Elijah tumor also spreaded to his spine. After Elijah initial surgery to remove partial tumor in his brain, he was left temporarily paralyzed. Elijah had to re-learn to talk, walk, and eat all at the same time as starting chemotherapy and physical therapy.

Strong is an understatement when it comes to Elijah! Elijah completed 3 cycles of chemotherapy in November 2012 and completed 3 months of radiation in March 2013. He had his port removed August 14, 2014.

Right after getting our life back on track in November 2016 I noticed Elijah's balance was off. December 1, 2016 he received a MRI which confirmed a new tumor on the brain. Elijah had brain surgery on December 13, 2016 and is currently recovering.

My goal as his mother is to make the best of these bad days by filling his childhood with the best memories as possible. Overwhelmed with medical bills and unexpected hospital stays make this very difficult and hard for me to even work as I care for him 24/7. As I'm still in debt from the first go round you can only imagine how these new bills will impact me.

Elijah is my only child and my entire life. I have to set my pride aside to ask for help in making sure all his needs are covered.

I thank each everyone of you .

Elijah has had 4 seizures since this past Thursday. His left eye don't seem to be improving. He is walking less everyday. Swallowing has become a huge concern. His speech is getting worse. So many changes so soon. He has started his new chemo last week. Praying for a miracle. Praying for some positive changes.
