Brady is a 15 year old boy who has recently been diagnosed with a very rare Inflammatory Psuedo Tumor, while it is not cancer it is in the same family as cancer. They do not know for sure what causes them, there are only 5 documented cases for the specialists to study in order to help Brady.

 

There is no magic medicine that will get rid of it, the tumors have to be removed surgically, because they are so aggressive & continue to grow & start new ones. Usually it can be removed fairly easy, but he does not fall under the easy category!


Originally they believed his tumor was only in his upper lobe, unfortunately with further examination they found out it has also spread to the lower lobe. They have started him on a very strong course of steroids with the hopes that the tumors will shrink enough that only half of his lung will have to be removed, but there is potential that he could have his entire lung removed.  After his surgery, he will be in ICU for an unknown about of time to heal.

 

Please see what you can do to help ease the financial stresses for Brady's family, as their only concern and focus should be on Brady's full recovery.

UPDATE 12/12/13:  Brady is scheduled for surgery to remove his lung tomorrow 12/13.  

UPDATE 12/19/13: Brady was rushed into surgery yesterday afternoon because his lung began leaking air into his chest. They placed him on an ECMO machine to provide oxygen to his body. They did not repair the leak because the first priority was to get him stable. The procedure to fix the leak was this afternoon at noon.  I will update as soon as I hear.

UPDATE 12/23/13: Brady was rushed into emergency surgery again yesterday for bleeding in his chest.  Surgery was a success.  Keep the prayers coming they are working.  This boy is a fighter!!!
