Please Help Elijah

This is 6 year old Elijah.
He attends 1st grade at Laguna Vista Elementary.
His birthday is Sept.16th 2010.
He will spend his 7th birthday in the Children's hospital this year.
Elijah was diagnosed with a brain tumor Thursday Sept.7th.
May 2017 started the events of Elijah waking up, vomiting followed by headaches.
His parents took him to his pediatrician multiple times, they were told it must be a virus.
His parents then took him to urgent care.
Doctors there said it might be stress due to bullying at school. The symptoms persisted .... back to the pediatrician they went and requested to see a neurologist.
Mom, Marina Sanchez and Dad, James Caetano took him last Thursday Sept 7th to get a CT scan, met the doctor after the scan and were told "your son has a brain tumor!"
They were immediately sent to Children's Hospital where more test were done. Elijiah underwent surgery today Sept. 12th.... They removed the tumor and will send it off for testing.
If everything goes as planned they will bring Elijah home next Tuesday.
His parents have been by his side and have missed work. Marina is unsure of how long the healing process will take. She will stay home with him until he heals.
This is an unexpected turn of events that put stress on the family in many ways. If you can donate any amount to help in their time of need it would be much appreciated!
Thank you!
