My Story

In July of 2019, in Brazil, I was found to have a large brain tumor. After having surgery to remove a portion of the tumor, it was diagnosed as Germinoma. I then flew to Washington, DC to be treated at Children’s National Medical Center, where I received 6 cycles of chemotherapy over a period of 3.5 months. I then received 6 weeks of radiation treatment at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center at Sibley Memorial Hospital in DC; which completed on Jan. 30th, 2020. All indications are good and I am continuing my recovery with physical therapy and follow-ups at the hospitals. The surgery also affected my right eye, so I may have to receive further treatment for that.Thank you all for your supporting me and other kids like me!
