A 9 year old girl was diagnosed with a large brain tumor when she was 4, after being misdiagnosed with influenza and tuberculosis after she began to vomit, walk into things and lose her eyesight. She has since had 5 lots of surgery and continuous chemotherapy, with no idea of how much longer she can fight the brain tumor. The girl attends school and requires visual aids, but is behind in her learning due to developmental problems secondary to the tumor and missed schooling.
