Emergency medical fund for Amari

My name is Tara, I’m from Fort Wayne, IN. I am raising funds for my best friend friend Niki and her family to help cover expenses associated with travel/stay to Orlando Fl. So that one of their twin boys can have the medical treatment he needs. Back story: On June 4, 2020 Amari, one of Sean and Niki’s twin boys was diagnosed with a Craniopharyngioma.  This is a rare brain tumor that has caused two cysts to form by his pituitary gland.  This has caused swelling and increased cerebral fluid.  Immediate surgery is needed to release the fluid from the cysts.  The plan going forward is to treat the tumor with radiation.  Because of how new the diagnosis is, the recovery length is unknown.   Due to COVID-19, only one parent is allowed to be with Amari during his hospital stay.  They have decided it is best for Sean to stay with Amari while Niki cares for their other 5 children which includes a nursing newborn.  Sean is the primary provider for their family, the length of time off work is unknown. Please keep this family in your thought prayers as they try to wrap their head around this nightmare.
