The family and friends of Benjamin Harry are uniting together to raise money to help in his fight against the brainstem tumor.

Benjamin Harry has had 3 major brain surgeries in the past year. the first two were to remove as much of a brainstem tumor as they could. the 3rd was to correct the 3rd ventrical. We knew that the tumor had shown some signs of regrowth and talk was that chemo would start this summer. This week the doctor was called as he was having some headaches upon waking. the doctors were concerned and that day a scan was done. it showed fluid at the base of his brain and that the 4th ventrical is blocked. plans are to go in on May 4th to remove the fluid, open up the ventrical and then scrape some more of the tumor out. when he heals from that he will have a port put in and have about 2 years of chemo in madison. this will make the parents miss alot of work, and have a lot of transportation costs to madison. Please help them if you can, but if you can't please continue to pray for ben's healing and for his team of doctors. thank you so much for all the prayers. they have helped more than you will ever know.

Thank you from the family of Ben. GO TEAM BEN!

UPDATE: Ben had his surgery. 4 days after surgery he went in for another surgery to place a feeding tube and the port for chemo. He is now home, recovering and dealing with some issues. He has trouble swallowing, we pray that goes away soon, he can swallow, but he can't eat enough to sustain him. he also has eyes that are very crossed. please pray for them to come back to how they were presurgery. they weren't perfect then but better than now. He is walking pretty good. he is starting therapy next week, physical,occupational and speach therapys. he will be going at least 2x a week. he is also going in for another mri, hearing test, and stitches removal on the 24th. chemo will begin on the 14th of june. we need your prayers, and also any donations to help with the costs of parents being off of work, co-pays, deductables, etc. thank you and all the wonderful people who have stepped up most generously to help out. god will surely reward you for your generosity.
