baby Ivan needs brain tumor surgery

Our fight began november 2016 when Ivan began having partial complex seizures. He had a EEG and saw a neurologist to confirm the seizures. The neurologist then ordered a MRI, that day was the scarest, our results were crushing. We found out Ivan has a large brain tumor 22mm in his left parietal lobe . Its not in a good spot, its in the center part of the brain that controls his speech and motor skills. Our surgon here in Greenville SC, said lets wait and watch it and when it changes then do surgery. We recently went to MUSC Charleston, SC and the neurosurgeon there suggested doing surgery sooner than later. The neurosurgeons dont know what type of tumor Ivan has, so it makes it more difficult. We are trying to raise enough money for me to be able to take the time i need to take off work to take ivan to the Medical University of South Carolina for his surgery. His healing time would depend how the surgery goes and how much therapy he will need afterwards. I am a single parent so we wont have any income coming in while im out of work. If u can give anything, we will be so greatful. Please help me, save my baby!!
