Chris' journey starts December 2nd. Actually it started about 3 years ago with headaches, pressure, throbbing and lock jaw like symptoms. After seeing about 5 doctors they found a tumor on the left side of his brain on the 4th nerve. He has been on a lot of medication to treat all the symptoms. We were told if the tumor was to grow it would be a difficult surgery as it is wrapped around the nerve. The recent MRI shows that it is growing so the decision by a team of doctors at the James is to remove what they can and do radiation on the rest to shrink it. So that is his story and surgery is scheduled for December 2nd.
