This is Adita Navarro

This is Adita Navarro, she is 6 and the daughter of my friends Mario and Ada Navarro. I grew up with Mario in Juarez, Mexico. We went to college together at The University of Texas at El Paso where he played on the golf team. He now lives in Guatemala where he works as a golf instructor. On Wednesday November 15 Adita was diagnosed with medullablastoma a cancerous tumor that affects between 250-400 children a year in the United States. She was flown to Boston on November 23 where the very next day she endured a 12 hour surgery. They removed the tumor, but unfortunately she was then diagnosed with Posterior Fossa Syndrome (PFS), a group of neurological symptoms that can occur primarily in children after brain tumour surgery to remove tumours, such as a medulloblastoma. Symptoms generally appear 1 to 3 days after surgery and can persist from months to years.

Thankfully Aditas parents have insurance that is covering most of the medical costs, but they are incurring extraordinary expenses that they just cannot afford.

Mario just flew back to work in Guatemala to be with his 5 year old son Marito. And will have to travel back and forth to be with his family and continue working.

This week doctors will perform additional tests to make sure that the tumor did not spread to her spinal cord, we pray and know that it has not.

Adita is cutlery at Boston Children's Hospital and hopefully she will be moved to the Spaulding Rehab Center to start therapy.

The road is long and they need out help. I am putting in $1,000 to start the fund and ask that you help out in anyway possible. I have never done this before, so hopefully it goes well.

I can provide additional information to anybody that is interested or needs to verify anything.

Thank you and God bless.
