Tamzin is 8 years old. In November 2017, at the young age of 7, she was diagnosed with Juvenile Pilocytic Astrocytoma. A rare form of childhood brain tumor. She has been receiving chemo since December 2017. If the tumor is surgically removed the chances of being "cured" are very high.
Unfortunately for Tamzin, the tumor is located in a part of her brain which doesn't allow for it to be surgically removed.
Sadly for Tamzin, this means that she will have to live with the Tumor for the rest of her life, receiving ongoing chemotherapy to prevent the tumor from growing.
Her mom is unemployed aside from a part-time bartending job on Friday and Saturday nights, as she needs to be available to Tamzin at all times to accompany her to her sessions and be with her after school every day.
The family need help with funds for medical treatment as well as in the home.
