Default Brain Tumour: Tectal Glioma & Hydro

Hi There,

My 3 yr old, Emma, was given a VP shunt at 7 wks age and prior to turning 2, we learned that the cause of the hydro was due to a brain tumour: a tectal glioma.* It's position in the brain does not favour surgery.* These tend to not grow or change but that's not saying they can't * ...I'm searching to connect with others with the same type of tumour.

If you are having difficulty connecting with someone in your situation on the forum, a suggestion would be to ask your neurosurgeon if he/she knows of a child with a similar condition to Emily. Perhaps they would be willing to start a link for you.
