"Your child has brain cancer"
These words should never be heard by any parent.
My then 17mos old daughter was diagnosed on 9/19/2017 with Grade 3 Anaplastic Ependymoma, a aggressive malignant brain tumor. We just had our third child not even a month prior, and our oldest daughter was only 4yo.
To say we were devastated would be an understatement.
One EVD placement, two brain surgeries, countless spinal taps and MRIs later- we now reside 730mi away from home at St Jude Children's Hospital.
Please consider donating to our family during this trying time. It is important for us as a family of five to stay together and focus on what is truly important- our daughters health and treatments.
We are forever grateful, humbled and beyond blessed by the outpouring of love we have received from our community, family, friends and even strangers.
From our hearts to yours, thank you.
