Story

Myca
Myca was an active 3 year old who loved to play baseball and ride sheep in the local rodeos. In the summer of 2008 his parents noticed an inward eye turn. After several doctors visits and an MRI, it was discovered that myca had a tumor on his brainstem. A whirlwind of events and Myca had surgery 8 hours away from home to remove what they could of the tumor. Because of the location only 1/2 of the tumor was resected. Since the operation myca has to receive ot and pt. He also has seizures several times a week. But none of this has stopped him from being an outgoing loving boy!
