Brookes First Day At High School|
Brooke was only 12 years old, her young adult life just beginning and was so excited at starting her new High School and has recently been diagnosed with
Malignant Astrocytoma Brain Tumor.
( Read the above files for more information )
Brooke underwent severe surgery at The Royal Children's Hospital to have the 7cm.tumor removed from her brain, but unfortunately the tumor could not be completely removed due to the risk of being paralysed.
Since this operation, the doctors have now found another Two Tumor's on her brain which they cannot completely remove because they are in an area that is at high risk.
Brooke has just finished her first 10 months of intense Radiation and Chemotherapy
Sadly, the Tumors appear to be
Immune to Radiation and Chemotherapy.
She will be undergoing intense treatment for the next year and beyond with the hope of success, but the future looks uncertain and we can only pray for a miracle.
