Tiffany's BrainTumor Operation Fund
Thank you for your support ahead of time.
This Christmas we have received crushing news...Our daughter Tiffany has been diagnosed with a rare brain tumor. a glioma tumor, that is located in the pons area of the brain. It is almost the size of a golf ball and is quickly killing her. 8 weeks ago she was playing with the other children and just 6 weeks ago we had to take her to the Dr who immediately sent her to the hospital and contacted the neurologists for examination. Upon receipt of the mri report, and after talking with the doctors, we were devastated to hear that our daughter had very little hope of making it more than a few months. Tiffany is only 9 years old.
Just the night of Dec 18th she had her first operation to install a tube to help drain excessive fluids from the brain. She has never recovered very well from that first operation and we assumed she would be needing a second very expensive operation called a Gama Knife procedure. Unfortunally the doctors in Manila do not agree with this assessment and instead feel that we should proceede with radiation therapy instead. Also as unfortunat is the fact that the second MRI shows that the tumor has grown in size by nearly 1cm in the past month. We have already spent 3 thousand dollars In the past 3 days stay in the hospital and we have not even began to do any treatment. This was only to bring Tiffany back to a reasonable condition. They can not do conventional operation because the location is inoperable. Our new schedule will be to go back to Cebu and proceede with Radiation therapy for Tiffany.
We need at least 10,000 usd to pay for this Radiation Therapy and the continued support for follow up treatments.
We need lots of good people to help us. We really depend on this. As you know, we have been serving God as missionaries in the Phillipines. We are not prepared for this financially or emotionally. No one really can be prepared for something like this. Will you please help us? We will keep this posted untill the end of Feburary or at which time our treatment options are fulfilled.

My thoughts and prayers for the success of your operation Tiffany, and strength and courage for your family members, most esp your parents. Will help spread awareness of this fund raising. God bless those who will contribute in any amount. I believe that GOD is the GREATEST HEALER AMONGST ALL HEALERS & DOCTORS. May the grace and love of our LORD JESUS CHRIST restore you in full health.
