Welcome to team Kevin Is My Hero!!!!!

Come out and walk with us for our first team walk.

On November 12th 2018 Kevin was admitted to the Emergency room after 30 days of symptoms (Fever, vomit, lethargy, neck tilt, neck pain,) and no diagnosis. At the initial CT Scan, a mass on his brain was found. Kevin was diagnosed with an Ependymoma Grade III brain tumor.
On November 14, 2018 Kevin underwent surgery at Oakland Kaiser Permanente to have the mass removed. Neurosurgeons beleive they were able to remove all parts of the tumor. Kevin was hospitalized for the next 53 days. He began radiation therapy treatment January 2nd, 2019. He is scheduled to complete 33 rounds of radiation on February 19, 2019.
