Kalea Avery, 6 years old, after experiencing several weeks of severe headache, had a brain tumor called Medulloblastoma removed on June 11,  2018.  Her 4 year old brother Noah Avery started complaining of headaches 2 weeks after Kalea.  He was also diagnosed with a brain tumor and had the removal on June 25, 2018.

Both Kalea and Noah will have to undergo intensive courses of both chemotherapy and radiation therapy.  

The Childrens Hospital Los Angeles oncologists, the pediatric neurosurgeon , and her pediatrician have never encountered siblings having a diagnosis of brain tumor within weeks of each other.

Duncan Avery, the father, is the current surf coach ( and prior boys volleyball coach) at Redondo Union High School.  Nohea Avery , the mother, is a nurse practitioner that currently works in an outpatient medical office and was a former nurse at Torrance Memorial Medical Center Intensive Care Unit.

Noah is post operative day 2 and is in the pediatric intensive care unit. He is talking, eating , and moving all his body parts . These are all very reassuring signs that he does not have posterior fossa syndrome. He still needs medications to manage his pain and a still quite sleepy. The hope is that the drain from his skull can be removed in a few days.

Kalea is recovering from the tumor resection and is on the oncology ward. She went outside today for the first time in 20 days! She was even able to slide down a small slide by herself .

Duncan and Nohea are unified and strong in the care fur their children . They are tag teaming between the two wards. Grandparents, aunties , and uncles , and friends have been a huge support system.

The family is overwhelmed with gratitude for the generosity , love , and support of the community !❤️
