A 3-year-old brain cancer survivor from Bend is recovering in the intensive care unit after undergoing major brain surgery in Seattle Friday.
Aaron Davenport’s intense cancer treatment has left him with relentless seizures. Doctors say the next best step was a hemispherectomy — removing a quarter of his brain and disconnecting another quarter.
How he reacts beyond this remains unclear.
Prior to the surgery, Aaron’s family had a “yes” day full of fun activities.
Last week, the Redmond Police Department gave him a memorable gift — swearing him in as an honorary police officer.
His mother, Ashley, is trying to work as much as she can remotely while Aaron is recovering in Seattle. Her husband is already taking double shifts at his job. If you can help them out, a GoFundMe has been set up at this link.
