Hello everyone I am here to help my best friend Brittany Brown.. She is diagnosed with a massive pituitary brain tumor, about 2 inches in diameter, possibly growing as long as 10 years, undetected, minimal symptoms...She went in for her first emergency surgery on Sept 5th, to install a shunt from brain to abdomen, to drain fluid from the brain. Her 2nd surgery wasSept 13th, about 6 hours..The surgeon was not able to accomplish what he wanted to get done..in 2-3% of cases its hard tissue, and she was part of that 2-3%.. If the surgeon tried to get it Brittany would of not woke up..
At Brittanys last Dr's appointment, she was told her tumor is a "1 in a million" odds because of the type of hormones its secreting! Her 3rd and hopefully last surgery is November 27th, a Cranitomy, a very invasive open head surgery. If all goes well, she will than be treated with radiation and medication for a year. She has not received any Disability pay so far....Please continue to keep her in your prayers! Thank you!!
Brittany just moved back here from L.A. and is without a job and not able to work in her situation..
Brittany and I were scheduled to have a fun photoshoot the other weekend and she went in for a MRI and they found a tumor...It is so crazy how one week she was fine and the next week she is still in the hospital waiting for another surgery..
Lets help her get through this. Anything would be appreciated..Thank you for your time....
