The Family & Friends of Brynlin Sanders are raising funds to offset medical expenses that will occur for her treatment for Brainstem Glioma

4 year old Brynlin was diagnosed with an inoperable Brain Stem tumor November 16th. Doctors at Wesley Hospital are referring to this as a Pontine Glioma, suspecting low grade. Brynlin started showing symptoms (vomiting, headaches, trouble walking) on October 31st. CT and MRI scans revealed a 4 cm tumor on her brain stem. She underwent surgery November 18th to place a Hickman catheter and shunt to drain the excess fluid. As of now we are at Wesley hospital in Wichita. Mike and I feel that God is telling us that we need to take her to the Burzynski Clinic in Houston, Texas. Mike and I have had different family members tell us about this clinic. The same night, Brynlin's nurse felt the need to wake us up in the middle of the night to tell us about this clinic. She said, "I probably shouldn't be telling you this, but we have a med student here who was telling me about this clinic in Houston that he did a research paper on." She gave us a copy of the website and it was the same place our family had told us about. We were able to fill out forms and send Bryn's medical information. We just got a call back from Houston and they will see Bryn on the 30th. That will be next Wednesday. If it is possible for us to get in sooner, they will let us know!
