Bentley is a 6 year old boy who was diagnosed with a spinal defect and a ganglioglioma brain tumor on his right frontal lobe just after his 5th birthday. He underwent brain surgery in January of 2022 to remove the tumor and again February of 2023 to correct the spine. Although the craniotomy was 90% successful, partial tumor is still present as it’s to deep in the brain to remove. He awoke from surgery with little to no function on the whole left side of his body.
After receiving physical therapy for 12 weeks & occupational therapy for the last 16 months, Bentley has about 95% function and his family is beyond thankful. He still suffers from nerve damage and pain but stays strong and pushes through everyday just to feel like a normal kid. Every six months he goes under anesthesia for MRIs to check the progression of the residual tumor. Funds raised through this campaign will go to past and future medical expenses.
