Less than two weeks ago, Neyla and her parents had a peaceful life. Except that the sky fell on the family originally from Deurne, in the province of Antwerp. About ten days ago, they learned that the 4-year-old girl had a very rare brain stem tumor, a disease which is unfortunately inoperable, reports Het Nieuwsblad this morning.

It was a Sunday that her mother Axana understood that something was wrong. Little Neyla was then dizzy. Her condition deteriorated very quickly as she spoke and articulated with difficulty in the UZA emergency department. A CT scan and MRI revealed the terrible diagnosis.

“Neyla turns out to have a tumor in her brainstem that they can’t reach. It is completely embedded in the cells. It’s a one in a million chance. Even chemo or radiation can never completely eliminate the tumor. The doctors say they can only prolong his life,” laments the mother, who still believes in a miracle.

A fundraising page has been set up to help Neyla’s parents. The goal ? Collecting money to buy her a special custom-made wheelchair: “She is already completely paralyzed on the left ten days after the verdict. If she is allowed to go home after radiotherapy, things will have to be adapted”.
