Baby has “Rare” Brain Tumor EMC

I am posting this on behalf of one of my moderators who have been with CQ for a long time! Britta I hope this helps!

PICU

Baby Asher was diagnosed with a brain tumor on October 5th, 2009. He was only 11 months old (his birthday is Nov. 3rd) when it was discovered. On October 9th, he underwent brain surgery and the tumor was completely removed.

The name of the tumor is Extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma (EMC) and it is malignant. This is a very rare tumor to be seen in a child, the average age of people with this type of tumor is usually 40 yrs+up. It is even rarer to be seen in the brain.

The doctors are a little baffled on how to treat Asher since they have no cases to use as reference material. They decided that he’ll go thru radiation, but it’s not sure yet for how long. Ashers mom has been unable to work since he was diagnosed with the cancer, she has been staying with him day and night at the hospital, she has unpaid leave from work to take care of her son but no income besides help from family and friends and her small savings to meet the basic expenses such as rent, utilities.

If you would like to help this family out by sending a donation or have any connections with a doctor who may know more about Asher’s case that can help, please contact this family! The grandmother has a been a long time member of ConsumerQueen.com and was dedicated to finding and posting deals to share with everyone! She was also moderator of our Walgreens and CVS forums!

    Thank you Melissa for this post, every dollar makes a difference, if we can make it possible for her to stay home till he’s done with the treatments and her not having to worry that will be such a blessing.

    My heart and prayers go out to Britta and Asher. I can only imagine what they and their family are going through. I wish I could do more than pray, but I hope that knowing you are in many people’s thoughts and prayers will bring you some comfort.

    I know of a few others with ECS who are members of the chondrosarcoma support group. Chondrosarcoma has different subtypes. ECS is one of them, more rare than conventional CS. There are a few others who are younger. Britta can find emotional support in the Chondrosarcoma Support Group from others who care very much for each other. My heart goes out to Britta, Asher and all their family. Blessings!
