The family and friends of Ace Deming are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against Brain Cancer. Please show your support!

Ace was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma on July 13, 2012.

It is a highly invasive embryonal neuroepithelial tumor that arises in the cerebellum and has a tendency to disseminate throughout the CNS early in its course.

As the tumor grows, obstruction of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) passage through the fourth ventricle generally occurs, resulting in hydrocephaly. The tumor may spread contiguously, to the cerebellar peduncle and/or the floor of the fourth ventricle; anteriorly, to the brainstem; inferiorly, to the cervical spine; or superiorly, above the tentorium. It also may spread via the CSF intracranially or to the leptomeninges and spinal cord. Of all the pediatric CNS neoplasms, medulloblastoma has the greatest propensity for extraneural spread, especially to bone and bone marrow.
