On June 2, 2017 we learned Chance had a large brain tumor. The entire tumor was successfully removed on June 8th. We went home from the hospital on June 15th with our once again active 2 1/2 year old.
Unfortunately, we learned on June 21st that the tumor was cancerous. Chance has grade 3 anaplastic ependymoma, RELA fusion positive. Chance’s treatment consisted of four months of chemotherapy followed by 6 weeks of radiation treatments and another 6 months of outpatient chemotherapy.
Chance continues to undergo physical and occupational therapy. He also has regular MRI scans to monitor for recurrence.
