Our little angel Amara was diagnosed with a brain tumor in April 2014. She has had non stop seizures since April, and we are working desperately to find a cure and improve her situation. Her oncologist and neurosurgeon suggested a wait and see approach, because surgery would not remove all of it, and didn't recommend chemotherapy or radiation. We chose to pursue a natural probiotic treatment, and other natural treatments (not covered by insurance) but will probably need surgery soon to treat the seizures that medication cannot help. We have extensively researched all clinical trials but none of them exist for children yet. We have enormous expenses for treatments, supplements, natural doctor consultations. We need your help and your prayers, and a firm belief and faith that Amara will heal. She is a miracle. Thank you and much love. Kenji, Sayoko, Amara.
July 2016 Update: Despite the miraculous progress and improvement we saw in 2015, Amara has been regressing in her development and is unfortunately not talking for the past few months.
Amara's tumor has not grown in the past year, and her seizures were reduced to almost none. An incredible achievement thanks to all of your support. But she has developed a new constant underlying seizure that cannot be seen. It is necessary now to do surgery, and it is scheduled for this month in May.
We need your support to give Amara the appropriate support, time, and post operative treatment that she needs in this critical time.
Please consider making a donation.
Thank you so much! Kenji & Sayoko
