July 19, 2013 Collin Update: Collin underwent an 8 hour surgery on 7/17. The pathology report shows that the cancer is a low grade glioma, specifically a pilocytic astrocytoma. It is unusual for this cancer to present with multiple lesions, such as Collin has, however there has been one other documented case. This cancer will require Collin to undergo 1 year of chemotherapy. The doctor talked about future birthdays, etc
The surgery did leave Collin with limited left leg function and chemo is starting in 1 week, so he has a long road to go. Thank-you all for the help!!! We have raised over $2,000 so far!
