He's only a year old, suffering. I have first hand experience with cancer, the pain, the misery, feeling like a vegetable-- and now that my nephew, Bastian who is just one years old is battling brain cancer, it breaks my heart. The Doctor said his cancer is very aggressive and gave us a time for him.
Bastian had no symptoms until one day my sister noticed he couldn't move a leg. The hospital told them they couldn't find anything wrong so come back another day for a follow up.
Two days later, my nephew couldn't move his arm and face; all on the same side as his leg. The hospital did a CT scan. Which didn't show much. Bastian then was able to do an MRI which the doctors found multiple tumors that was in his brain, back and spine. Bastian eventually was able to do so surgery but only on his spine and they removed some tumors. He is suppose to do the removal of his brain tumors, but the doctor said that it's not looking to good and that some tumors, are in places they cannot operate on.
Bastian has started to lose control of his body, he hasn't smiled. He's not himself. Moana was his favorite movie and didnt crack not one smile when my sister put in on. My nephew, is unable to be a normal baby. He hasn't even learned how to walk yet. He hasn't smiled since he lost feeling and now barely wants to eat and is just in so much pain that he is receiving morphine and fentanyl.
Bastian was released from the hospital the following day. That night he became lethargic at home so they had to rush him back to the hospital. They found out that the tumors in the brain, grew so rapidly that his spinal chord fluid is blocked by a tumor so no fluids to run the central nervous system.
Doctor gave him a time already. I don't understand. So innocent and so pure.
Monetary donations for Bastian are welcome but also keep in mind you're not obligated to donate if you can't. A prayer is fine. We really just want people to cover him in prayer as I understand everyone has their own family to take care of financially. If you wish to donate? Please feel free. Every dollar counts.
Especially because my sister is a stay at home mom due to watching her kids and is at the hospital with Bastian in California--- all day and night- 24/7 so there isn't really income from her, she doesn't work so she can tend to my nephews , she has no family either up there. I feel so helpless but hopefully people will donate. ❤️ Thank you for reading! I appreciate it!
