    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    This is my young adult son. I never cried so much in my life. I could not stop crying. I believe I cried for weeks. I saw a doctor I needed to get on my feet and be strong. Two weeks after the MRI that changed our lives my son was having brain surgery at MSK with the greatest surgeon. The hospital stay was awful, really bad the noise was bad the roommates were all in some state of pain, needing a lot of care but we lived through it.

    Chemo will last at least a year maybe 2. My son is so brave, stong and awesome. MRI's every 2 months until further notice. My son is an inspiration to me.
