For the last few weeks he has been suffering from headaches, loss of balance, and back pain. Initially we thought David had suffered a stroke. He had fallen at home and exhibited symptoms similar to those of a stroke which including speech impairment, headaches and a limp in his walk. All test up to this point has come back normal and we were unsure of the cause of his degrading health. After continue headaches David was taken in to get an MRI done and on Wednesday October 23, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor.
David was admitted to the Los Alamitos Medical Center’s ER where he remained under the care of the staff while undergoing further scans and test. A week later a biopsy was conducted in order to diagnose the nature of the tumor. This biopsy confirmed that the tumor is in fact cancerous and David was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma Brain tumor. Due to the to size and aggressive nature of the tumor surgical removal is not an option. David will now undergo a 6 week series of Radiation and Chemotherapy treatments with the goal of shrinking the tumor, extending his life and making it more comfortable.
With all of this in mind we are looking to raise money to help David and his wife Hatti to pay for the medical expenses incurred to this point as well as those associated with chemo and radiation therapy. These funds will also be used to help with any subsequent expenses that may arise from this tragic situation. We thank you all for your support of David in this difficult time.
