We are trying to raise money to help with Medical and other expenses due to Travnes Brain tumor and related medical problems. God bless!

On Oct 22 2010 traven was diegnosed with a craniopharygionma brain tumor (it is a benine tumor so wont spread to other parts of the body, but very agressive and can come back to the same spot). Due to the size of the tumor surgery was our only option so on Oct 25 2010 Traven underwent a 9 hour surgery to remove the tumor and his pituitary gland becaues the tumor had crushed it. That caused him to have Hypopituitarism and Diabetes Insipidus. Since the first surgey he has had to have a VP Shunt placed and revised twice due to pressure on his brain. He has had an Ablation done on his heart because he was going into SVT so much. He has a feeding tube in his belly because he does not have an intact thirst mechanism and he had to have 1800 mls of water everyday to help controle his Diabetes Insipidus. he is on 15 difrent meds some are paid for by insurence and some are not, he has gone blind in his right eye. He is now in a wheel chair, has no balance so cant stand by himself. His body dont controle his temp so he will run fever for no reason. he has no short term memery and since his first surgery he itches all the time and the Drs have no idea why. He is in and out of the hospital alot, his first stay was 3 months and has had a total of 14 stays any where from 3 months to just over night, with 10 surgerys so far. We are 2 hours away from Arkansas Childrens Hospital and no other hospital will touch him so cost add up quickly, rather its a stay or just going for Dr. appointments. I am a single parent that is now a stay at home mom to take care of Traven everyday. So no matter the size every little bit will help. Thank you and God bless!
