Ezra James #EzraStrong

After a few weeks of flu like symptoms and lack of recovery, Ezra was taken to the emergency room and had an MRI done, which brought news no parent ever wants to hear. He had a brain tumor. After nearly a week in the hospital, Ezra has had surgery to remove the tumor from the cerebellum, and is currently in the ICU recovering from surgery. While the first major hurdle has been jumped, little Ezra and his family still have a long, grueling road ahead. In an effort to manage both medical costs, and living expenses from missed work, we have decided to start this page in an effort to help support Jaime, Matt, Ella, and Ezra as much as possible. Any funds in excess of what's needed to support the family through the treatment process will be donated to support further pediatric brain cancer research.
