Mary-Kaylin is a precious 8-year who was diagnosed last Friday with a brain tumor. It all happened very suddenly after she experienced some bad headaches last week, and her doctor sent her for a CT scan, then an MRI. The tumor is a "glioma" and is in the thalamus of her brain, a part of the brain that is almost impossible to reach, even for a biopsy. Gliomas are not curable, and our only hope is that it is a slow-growing tumor. She had surgery Saturday to put in a shunt to drain all the fluid off her brain. The doctors were amazed that she was able to function at all considering the amount of fluid and the location of the tumor.
