Juvenile Pilocytic Astrocytoma
Grayson Anderson

Brain Tumor Survival Story
By Brandon and Paula

Grayson had an MRI on October 2, 2008 which showed a mass on his brain. We were immediately sent to Children's. We met with the neurosurgeon and surgery was scheduled for October 6. On October 8 we found out, by repeat MRI, that 100% of the tumor was removed. On October 16 we found out the tumor was benign. If not for the staff, nurses and physicians and our faith in God, we would have never made it through this ordeal. We can never express our appreciation to each person that impacted our lives in such a trying time. Our entire world was turned upside down in just a matter of minutes. However, the road to recovery has been a blessing and God has truly blessed our family with a miracle.
