FGHS junior recovers from brain surgery
Forest Grove High School junior Chloe McCall is doing well after brain surgery at Randall Childrens Hospital last week, her mom, April McCall told the News-Times.
About two weeks ago, Chloe was diagnosed with craniopharyngioma, a brain tumor shes likely had since birth. She received her diagnosis after a checkup sparked by migraine headaches.
The McCalls are Forest Grove residents and have started a fundraising campaign online to help pay for medical bills. April McCall lost her job within days of her daughters brain tumor diagnosis, she said, and while some of Chloes medical expenses will be covered by insurance, they will still have out-of-pocket expenses.
While doctors were able to remove most of the tumor, they werent able to get all of it so Chloe will have to undergo radiation treatments.
Chloe works at the Forest Grove Papa Murphys and competes in ice skating. She takes classes at Forest Grove High School and online. Visit gofundme.com/8f5my9y4 to donate.
