In the words of my sister, Lucy's Mom, Jessica Prutz...

Need to get this off my chest and out into the world so maybe I can start to accept this reality.

We have been asking our doctors for a while to help us figure out why Lucy has been throwing up so much for the past few weeks and having headaches. No one had any answers, no one knew what was going on.

On Sunday we came to Randall Children’s emergency room to get more tests done, she had a CT scan of her brain and it came back abnormal. We found out that Lucy has a brain tumor.

An MRI the next morning revealed that it is not only a tumor but it is cancerous and has spread throughout her brain and spine. She had surgery yesterday, neurosurgeons removed a piece of the tumor so we can figure out what cell type it is.

What we do know is that no surgery at this point can remove all of it. Lucy will need intensive chemotherapy and probably radiation.

We are broken. We are lost. We are sick. We are confused and hurting so deeply it is unimaginable. We are quietly breaking down, and at the same time trying to be strong for Luc and not let her see how scared we are. We’re going to do everything we can to save our girl.

Please hold your loved ones close and treat them right because you never know. Thank you to family who has been helping us, lord knows we will need it.

Love you Lucy♥️♥️ more than you’ll ever know.

Hey all, I was going to write a big long update on how Lucy is doing but I couldn’t do it. I’m too emotionally spent and honestly broken.

The truth is she is not doing well. Lucy had another brain surgery 3 weeks ago. She has also been off chemo since then because our doctor didn’t think it was the best treatment option.

We are supposed to be starting a clinical trial tomorrow, but we are scared that she will need another surgery tomorrow before she even starts the medicine. Then the meds will be delayed, which is devastating.

Thank you everyone for donating to the gofundme, for sending mail and gifts to us and Lucy, for gift cards, meals, and all of the love and prayers. We need it all. All of the donated funds will be helping with Lucy’s medical bills and helping with our daily life/bills, while I am not working and not getting paid. ** I am employed, just do not qualify for FMLA and had already used my earned leave when Lucy began getting sick.

Keep sending your love, we are not in any way out of the weeds yet.

Thank you everyone, love to you all.

Sincerely,

♥️Jess and Gunnar
