When your child is diagnosed with a brain tumor one of the many feelings is lack of control for what is happening. Our son Andrew was diagnosed with a brain tumor at age 3 and as a result of the growing tumor in his brain, surgery, and many years of chemotherapy came many deficits including academic. We knew early on that Andrew needed a very specific academic environment but with that came the tremendous financial burden of placing him in a private school that could meet those needs.
While the clinical aspect of Andrew’s diagnosis limits what we can control, we know that we can control where he goes to school. We can provide him a place where he is happy and thriving. John Shapiro’s Superheroes has given us the financial support to lessen the burden of the tuition that comes with Andrew’s school and having that control we could not be more grateful.
