Avery is the CUTEST young lady from Las Vegas. She’s been battling a brain tumor that just won’t stay away!
What started as a surgery, quickly went to another surgery, radiation, and now a clinical trial. With the help of family, friends, and her community, Avery’s family has been able to raise over $8,000!
Thursday, December 10th–Avery will undergo a Craniotomy Resection to try and remove her brain tumor. This operation is expected to last at least 8-10 hours. Once they are in her brain, they will most likely have to remove her shunt to gain full access to the tumor. (The shunt is a tube that’s already in her head that relieves the pressure on her brain caused by fluid accumulation). A few days after recovering, they will need to go back in her head to re-insert the shunt.This is ROUND THREE for Avery. She has already gone through brain surgeries and a year of chemo. Yet…this tumor has decided to make a reappearance.Avery has been so very brave. Enduring the surgeries, chemo, hospital stays, and things that no child should have to endure.Avery’s neurosurgeon is amazing…but, they don’t think they’ll be able to get the entire tumor with this surgery and she will still require chemo and/or radiation. Avery’s fight isn’t over…it’s beginning YET again.With Stephanie and Chris in Seattle with Avery and the other three kiddos in Las Vegas…we wanted to put this fundraiser together so that the LAST thing the Driscoll’s need to worry about are the mounting medical bills and cost to travel back and forth. Their hospital stay in Seattle is unknown at this point.
Avery is an AMAZING fighter, and we are so honored to share her story of bravery on our website.
