Bree is the 2 year old daughter of Kristin Haga from Boiling Springs, SC fighting Medulloblastoma , a patient of St. Judes Childrens Research Hospital in Memphis TN. Caringbridge website is www.caringbridge.org/visit/breehaga Here is a note from her mother and then from me. Bree started to have trouble sleeping a few months before her diagnosis. Then came the irritability and shakiness. After a few trips to the dr he said she was a healthy baby and may be having bad dreams and irritable from not sleeping well. Blood work came back good. Weeks went by and Bree started to regress by not crawling as fast and finally led up to not being able to stand up. We knew something was wrong because Bree started crawling at 6 mths and was almost walking before her symptoms started. We were told she had viral infections and maybe even scarlett fever. But even then we weren't convinced that something wasn't terribly wrong. Finally after several dr visits a CT scan was scheduled for July 15th. (The day after Bree turned 1 year old). While waiting for the CT the week before, Bree began to have vomiting at night. Bree was still in recovery after the CT scan when we were told that Bree had a large brain tumor and that's where Bree's journey began. They told us to go home, pack what we could, and go straight to MUSC in Charleston where they would be waiting on us. Bree's tumor was removed on July 17th and they believe to have removed all of it. She spent a few weeks in PICU from complications of surgery and hydrocephalus. After waiting on pathology, we were told Bree has a malignant brain tumor which is very aggressive cancer called Medulloblastoma. She has had an additional 2 brain surgeries including EVD drain, and 3rd Ventricullostomy. Bree also suffers from Post-Terrior Fossa Syndrome and has left-sided weakness. She was discharged from MUSC and sent to St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis, TN and arrived there August 8th, 2010. She is currently on the SJYC07 protocol. Bree was given a poor prognosis at MUSC so we are hoping and praying for a miracle at St. Judes! ~Kristin (Bree's mommy) ****SHIRT/BRACELET SALES!!!**** We have our "peace. love. bree" shirts for sale in pink youth xs-adult xxl and Navy youth xs-adult xxl .
