Jordan (7 months old) has recently discovered a tumor living in in brain (Ependymoma).
Ependymoma is a rare type of primary brain or spinal cord tumors--found throughout the central nervous system in the supratentorial (top of the head), posterior fossa (back of the head) and spinal compartments.
The tumor is late stage, aggressive and rare (a Grade 3 Supratentorial anaplastic ependymoma RELA - fusion positive).
This has been extremely tough for his parents and family. While they've been hanging in there as they try to understand their options-- they need our help. Due to the contraints of his parent's medical coverage, they've been left with limited options and financial hardship ahead.
Despite his situation, he's recovering from his 1st (of many to come) surgeries, currently surrounded by his animals, moving around, and watching everyone in the room (when not napping).
Anything helps. If you are unable to help financially-- spreading the word goes a long way and can be just as helpful.
