Bad news for toddler with brain tumour

IT is the worst possible news his parents could have received. Brave toddler Braxton Rayner's brain tumour has aggressively spread through his brain.

His parents received the bad news after a visit to high profile Sydney neurosurgeon Charles Teo.

His mother Kirsten Rayner said Dr Teo was one of the smartest men she had met.

"He sat us down and went through every single scan and showed us how the tumour has been growing the whole time.

"The growth was so significant that a blind man would have noticed it."

Mrs Rayner said she was angry to the point of being sick after being misled about the tumour.

"There are four types of categories for this tumour and from the beginning we were told it was one, which is the lowest and now we've been told it's a category three.

"Brisbane (hospital) let this tumour take over my son's brain and now it can't be all taken out.

"Dr Teo can't get the entire tumour out but he will do his very best.

"He has listed to us all the things that could go wrong, but we have every trust in him.

"We're not going to stand by and do nothing.

"If we don't do something, the tumour will kill our son.

"He wants to do surgery next Wednesday, but it comes at a price."

After receiving the devastating news the family urgently needs to raise the extra funds for life-saving surgery.

"Any donation no matter how small helps in a big way," Mrs Rayner said.

Braxton's Fight wristbands are now on sale.

They are $5 each and are available from the Braxton's Fight Facebook page.
