Erickson’s Battle Against Anaplastic Ependymoma

Erickson was diagnosed with Anaplastic Ependymoma on October 2013 when we was 3 years old, he is now 10 years old. Anaplastic Ependymoma is a tumor that forms when cells in the central nervous system begin to move rapidly. Erickson’s father is the only person able to work in his household and they struggle financially because he doesn’t make enough to cover all the expenses. They are currently confined to a small room because of their financial struggles. Erickson has recently developed multiple tumors around his brain which requires many invasive and painful surgeries to remove them. They also have found them in his spine. He is in so much pain and he is tired of fighting. Mom remains hopeful. We are trying to make all of Erickson’s wishes come true, this would be so amazing.

We are truly appreciative and extremely grateful for anything you can do to help.
