My name is Andrew Clark. People call me Andy. I am 23 years old and I have a brain tumor. I recently had a third ventriculostomy to relieve the water pressure caused by the tumor AKA: Tim. That's what we're calling the wiley coyote in my brain. Basically, that surgery was a success because my debilitating migraines went away. But, I still maintain double vision and according to the lastest MRI Tim has grown. Seriously, this guy is like twice the size now.
Now I'm looking at the daunting task of paying off my ER visits, MRIs, consultations, and surgery. And, apparently, this stuff ain't cheap. Who would have thought that brain surgery could be so expensive? So, I'm asking for help. If you can donate; if you can't: please just send your positive thoughts my way.
It looks like more surgeries are to come. The surgeon recommends a spinal tap to make sure it hasn't spread throughout my spinal fluid. And, another surgery to biopsy the tumor to see what it is and if I will need chemotherapy or just radiation.
Thanks for reading guys, I really appreciate it.
