Logan was dealing with some weird symptoms over the last several weeks. He was diagnosed with tortacollis and started PT, but then started vomiting at random intervals over several days. His amazing Mama - after being dismissed 3 times by their pediatrician - demanded further testing at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus. It was there that little Logan was diagnosed with a mass on his brain, just 2 days before his 1st birthday.
Logan celebrated his birthday in the PICU at Children's Hospital, and underwent brain surgery just 2 days later.
Luckily, his incredible surgeons got the entire tumor during his surgery. Today, however, we learned his journey is far from over.
Logan's sweet Mama, Jessica, shared with us:
His tumor is an anaplastic ependymoma, grade III- aggressive and fast growing. Radiation is a must because if we won't do it, there is 90% chance that it will come back. Now we decide between different hospitals that focus on Proton Radiation- St. Jude's, Cincinnati, Chicago, and Boston as the ones we are looking at. It will be 6 weeks, M-F. Logan and I would stay there and Travis and Carson (and possibly Drake some weekends) would come on the weekends hopefully. Doing radiation gives him from 70-85% survival rate. It definitely sucks talking about the survival rate of your baby.
Luckily Jess (a Dublin City Schools teacher) has been blessed with amazing co-workers who have donated their time off to ensure she can be there for her baby. The immediate financial need now falls upon the housing, travel and food necessities that will come with her living in another city for at least 6 weeks, away from her older baby (Carson) and her husband, Travis, while Logan received treatment. Also we want to lessen the burdon of the medical bills that will soon start to come in.
Please help us support Jessica and Travis, as they fight for sweet Baby Logan and try to keep things consistent for Carson. Any amount or "share" helps
