My Story

Rebecca was diagnosed with brain cancer in April. She was only 15 months old and this was a total shock to me. She has had 3 surgeries on the back of her head, 2 to remove the tumor and 1 because she was leaking spinal fluid. She had her first chemo and she seemed to handle it well. We were allowed to come home and that was nice until she had a fever and was diagnosed with Bacterial Meningitis. After 3 weeks we are back home and she seems better. I have to tube feed her 4 times a day and take care of the picc line. I'm a single father and I love her very much. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do.
