On Sunday, December 11th, Brady was taken to the emergency room for symptoms thought to be related to a possible stroke. He was experiencing weakness on the left side of his body - in the face, his arms and legs. Earlier in the week he had headaches and vomiting, at first thought to be stress related gearing up for finals and the end of the semester. The previous weekend Brady charmed audiences at Norcross High School performing as the Prince in Cinderella.
During that emergency room visit a CT scan was taken and a 2 inch tumor was found in his right frontal lobe. We were immediately sent to Scottish Rite (Atlanta) for removal and biopsy. 98% of the tumor was extracted, with the remaining portion attached to a blood vessel with too much risk to remove surgically. The tumor was found to be cancerous...rare in children, aggressive, and difficult to treat.
