Project Description

Logan S.

Logan was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor, a Craniopharyngioma, on July 29, 2007. After four surgeries and 31 radiation treatments, the tumor is gone; however, Logan is now legally blind, left only with a small amount of vision in his right eye. The location of this tumor makes it a life-long condition because of the hormonal deficiencies, vision loss, obesity, and social and psychological issues. He will be on several medications for the rest of his life, and while these medications are critical, they fix some problems and cause others. The radiation he received can cause malignancies in his brain in the future. A return of the tumor or occurrence of a new tumor could take the rest of his vision.

In spite of all this, Logan loves school, and he finished five of his six years at Pope High School in 2016. He will officially graduate in 2017. Because of the brain tumor, he can no longer play sports, but Logan loves word searches, building Legos, and Star Wars. Although he and his younger brother have rougher moments post-brain tumor, they love each other very much and are great supporters of one another. Logan is optimistic and faithful that God is working a plan!
