Not sure Amanda will get to post this to the forum. This is from her Facebook page.
Ok where do i begin,we just got the results back from the lab. cadens tumor is a stage2 gliioma astro cytoma. it is cancerous.his next surgery is scheduled for next tuesday.it is imperative that as much of the tumor as possible is removed.there are several obsticals that prevent them from removing 100% .a main artery runs directly through the tumor,and cant be disturbed.damage to this could cause a stroke. the other problem is that the tumor comes from inside of the brain stem.it can be severd at the stem but it impossible for the doctor to enter the stem itself.post operation will consist of further mri's and discussion of treatment.the cancer is contained to the brain however can travel through the spinal fluid and spread throught the brain. some know some dont,my dad passed away at age 27 from a stage 2 astrocytoma.this is hard for my family to hear. we know God IS bigger than the situation.prayers please thats what we need most . we have a very very long road ahead .updates to follow

OMG - I am so sorry that it is this.
Crap!!! This is just aweful. I'm in tears now just thinking about what she is going through. I'm just so sorry.
There some new folk on the forum that were newly dx. At dx you think this is the worst that can happen and why me and why my child. And then a few years later something much much worse happens to one of our own. I'm just so sorry to hear this.
My family's thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
I'm so very sad to hear this. Completely unfair.

Amanda has setup this page for Caden: https://www.facebook.com/PrayersForCaden
A quick synopsis -- Caden had a second surgery to try to remove the tumor, but they were able to get only about 60% of is as it is has a major blood vessel to the brain going through it.
They are considering the options going forward.
Thanks so much for sharing...especially from those of us (me) not on Facebook.
My heart is breaking for them, and they are in my thoughts and prayers throughout the day.
