On May 18th, Christian Longomba was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He went under the knife the first time on May 29th 2015, which took a long 10 hours. The surgery was successful but he had to to undergo another surgery later to remove blood clots in the brain.
After the second surgery, doctors noted that that they were able to safely remove 90% of the tumor and he still needs to go through six weeks or more of radiation in order to completely remove the tumor.
A public appeal has been made by his family to help raise money for the medical expenses. You can donate through a Go Fund Me page started by his family Brain Surgery for Christian.
