Little Coraline

The Desconocido M.C. is raising money for this little girl who on Saturday Aug 18 took a CT scan of Coraline where they found that there was a mass in her brain. Children’s transported her to their facilities and that night she had a drain placed in her head to drain off her extra fluid and relieve the pressure on her brain. They also took many MRI scans so that have good pictures of the mass.
Then on August 22nd Coraline had a craniotomy and a majority of the mass was removed and sent to pathology. It could not all be removed because of where it was located in her brain. She then was in the hospital recovering until August 28th when we were released to come home. Before her discharge we met with oncology about the pathology results. She was diagnosed with nongerminomatous germ cell tumor (NGGCT).
On August 4th we had an oncology appointment to discuss the treatment plan. On Wednesday September 12th Coraline will have a port put in and start chemotherapy right away that day. She will have 18 weeks of chemo fallowed by more scans to check the progress of her treatment. Also the scans will determine what type of radiation and how much she gets. We are taking everything one step at a time and just hoping for the best.
