My Story

Braison, our first child, can be described as over-excited, funny, caring, loving, compassionate and energetic. With these wonderful descriptions also come developmental delays. By age 2 he was only speaking 5 words and did not speak in sentences. After a state evaluation he qualified for speech and occupational therapy. As the months went by we pushed for him to be seen by a neurologist. The neurologist ordered an MRI and it showed a tumor in the right thalamus of his brain, an inoperable spot. The thalamus serves as your sensory and motor control center. At this time we are seeking various opinions and treatment options from many hospitals. Currently the tumor is an unidentified mass and doctors so far have never seen anything like it. Hearing news like this is any parents worst nightmare. Having a child is like having a heart outside your body. If I had one last wish to make it would be to heal my son and set his problems free.
