Help Jonny Wade Beat Cancer!
The day after Christmas, Jonny Wade, a 7 year old twin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor and later that evening, had brain surgery. He had his first headache only 7 days prior. Soon after, it was confirmed that Jonny has a rare brain cancer called Medullobalstoma and it has spread to his spine. In less than 3 weeks, Jonny has undergone 5 surgeries, which 4 were in his brain. He now has a shunt due to a condition called Hydrocephalus, where fluid accumulates in the brain. Jonny has a year long treatment plan which includes Proton Radiation Therapy (brain and spine) followed by Chemotherapy, which both have horrific side effects. Since the cancer has spread, Jonny is considered high risk and there is a 50% chance of this cancer returning within 2 years. Jonny's twin brother, Jacky, along with the family, has also been affected greatly.
