Jared was diagnosed with brain cancer on July 28th, 2017. He started having symptoms in late March of 2017, but as they were vision problems, we didn't recognize it as a symptom at the time. Looking back, Jared realizes now that he started having some balance problems in June, but he didn't fully recognize at the time. And around mid-July, he was having ear ringing and hearing loss in his left ear. We took him in for what seemed to be an inner ear infection or something related to the ear. The doctor ordered an MRI and later that day we found out he had a brain tumor. That was Wednesday, July 26th. By July 28th, we received a call for our appointment with KU Medical Center and they shared that based on imaging, the tumor was malignant. We have our first appointment with KU Medical Center on Monday, July 31st, and hope to find out some more certain information. We will keep you updated here.
We appreciate your prayers and support during this journey.
