Help Isabelle beat cancer

Hi, my name is Courtney, in August of 2021 my 8 year old daughter started getting headaches. I took her to the ER where they gave her an MRI to "ease my mind" that nothing was wrong. When the MRI result came back the Dr. took me into a private room and told me Isabelle had a tumor the size of a wiffel ball in her brain. 3 days later Isabelle had surgery to resect the tumor. The neurosurgeon was able to remove most of it. Isabelle woke up from surgery talking and using the restroom with assistance. The next morning she woke up and was silent, and she couldn't move her body. She had suffered a brain injury due to tumor removal called Posterior fossa syndrome. Next came the biopsy results, her tumor was cancerous, medulloblastoma. She spent almost 2 months in the ICU at Kaiser in Roseville before being transferred via ambulance to Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego. Once at Radys she began to relearn how to walk and started 30 rounds of proton therapy. After 93 days Isabelle had started to speak again. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy, still working hard to walk and practice speaking. She had a small setback recently as she needed a brain procedure to help with hydrocephalus. Although she is still unable to eat/drink or walk unassisted she has been constantly trying her best and has kept an amazing positive attitude about everything. We still have a few months of chemotherapy and she will need years of physical therapy and speech/swallow therapy to get back to a semi-normal life. This has been very hard on our family and any little bit of help is so much appreciated.
