I hope someone can redirect me. My nephew, 27 never smoked, drank and lived a healty athletic life walked into a hospital Thanksgiving morning and now is paralyxed from his neck down and is in surgery at this present time. He was first diagnosed with a mild form of MS yet know they found a tumor by the C4 vertabrae that caused the paralysis and may cause his heart and lungs to cease. The surgery is to relieve the pressure on the nerves. Can someone direct me to information of astro sarcoma
