Help Kyron fight Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma

Hi, our names are Kyron McGuire Snr & Martika Winmar and we have decided to make a GoFundMe page on behalf of our oldest son Kyron McGuire Jnr who is 5 and a half years old.On the 10th of January 2018 Kyron Jnr was unfortunately diagnosed with an agressive stage 3, with some signs of stage 4, rare form of brain tumor aka DIPG. Battling the pain while showing very few symptoms, we noticed day by day in the three days before taking him to the hospital his body started to slump to one side and had trouble keeping his balance while walking and falling over twice. On the 3rd of January his face drooped on the same side his body was slumped, so we took him to the local ED. The doctors put him in for an MRI, halfway through they stopped and rushed us back to the Ed and said they found a large mass on his brain and were unsure of what it was yet, but insisted we should call our families and let them know. We were then transferred by Ambulance to Princess Margaret Hospital where we later found out it was a brain tumor the size of a 50c coin. On the 5th of January he underwent surgery to safely remove as much of the tumor as possible. After removing 60-65% of it successfully, we only hoped & prayed it was a benign tumor not malignant. Unfortunately the odds were against us and the results came back much worse than what the doctors and we ourselves expected. Then to find out the rarity of his cancer and there is no known cure as surgery had already been ruled out, radiotherapy being the only treatment to try and contain it (the cancer) but wasn't a curity for it and couldn't be given a prognosis. Since he was admitted Kyron Snr hasn’t been able to work his usual hours, being the main source of income but family always comes first, now planning for the big road ahead trying to remain strong for him...Kyron is an absolute beaming light in our lives, a bubbly, witty, happy, strong and beautiful 6 year old boy. He lights up our world and is always there to put a smile on our faces. To say we are heartbroken to imagine a world without our bubba doong is an understatement. Our eyes well up every day thinking of that future. So please, if you believe in love and life, help give cancer a positive spin by supporting our little family make the most memories we could for as long as he is on this earth. Please find it in your heart to help our family, every donation counts big or small, and from our family we would be forever grateful. Thank you for your support and we will be sure to keep you all updated in this long journey ahead of us. Much love from our family Xx
