After a couple weeks of seizures and various symptoms, on Wednesday May 18th Mercedes was diagnosed with a brain tumor. It's roughly the size of an egg and a low grade glioma. This mass is causing a mid line shift of her brain to the right, and she's also having multiple seizures a day. Surgery is scheduled for June 9th, 2016 at UCLA.
At this time we request any contact, questions or cards for Mercedes go through Ange, rather than contacting her directly. Right now Mercedes really needs to focus on healing, we appreciate your understanding and prayers!
