My Story

Adrianna is a sweet and sassy little girl. She is a social butterfly and likes to stay on the go. Adrianna was diagnosed with a Brain Tumor, Craniopharyngioma, which affects 2 in 100,000 kids per year. Her tumor was malignant in size. She went into a coma right before her MRI and with the Grace of God she made it through emergency surgery to relieve the pressure. This tumor affects her growth and she will be on hormone replacement for the rest of her life. Adrianna has started her growth harmone replacement and a small part of the tumor remains. Now that she is on growth harmone we will have to monitor more closely to ensure the tumor doesn't begin to grow again.
