My 5 year old son David Morse was taken to the ER March 14th 2014 when they found a mass a little smaller then the size of a tangarine in his brain. On March 17th 2014 he had to have brain surgery to have the mass removed and a few days later we were told that it was malignant. Our son has a very rare type of brain cancer that is only found in 50% of adults in the whole US and a hand full of children in the US. They diagnosed him with Upper Ventricular Neurocytoma Brain Cancer. It is a very rare and aggressive cancer. Within 2 months of 2 seperate MRI's he had 2 seperate times of 25% regrowth after the 1st brain surgery. He just had his second brain surgery June 12th in Chicago, in which they have removed all the brain tumor but he is not in the clear yet. He will NOT be deemed cancer free until ALL his MRI's for the next 5 years come back clear of NO regrowth of tumor. IF any tumor has regrown in any MRI's then he will have to have continuous surgeries until the age of 6, at that time he will have radiation as the Dr doesn't want to expose his brain to radiation this young in age. Our family is in need of funds and support through this issue, we are raising money to help pay bills, travel, medications, any supplies he may need after surgery, and David in his journey to beat cancer and to help little David recover. Please show support and help out however possible.
