FRAMINGHAM, MA - Tramiris Anthony is a 9 year old boy from Framingham, MA. He has always been a healthy, happy and athletic child, enjoying sports, videogames and, of course, playing with his friends.
In early April, just three months after his ninth birthday, Tramiris wasn't feeling well -- he awoke one night with severe dizziness and vomiting, symptoms which continued over the next few days.
Doctors suspected a virus, but when his nausea persisted over the following weeks he was ordered to undergo an MRI, revealing a tumor in his cerebellum.
After surgery at Children's Hospital in Boston to remove the growth, doctors diagnosed Tramiris with pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma (PXA) with anpalastic features, an exceedingly rare form of brain cancer.
Tramiris is now being seen at Dana Farber, where they will continue to monitor his status over the following months
Treatment will likely include more surgery, as radiation and chemotherapy have not been shown to be effective in treating PXA.
Tramiris is now at home with his mother, Nicole, and will continue moving forward day by day.
Team Tramiris was created to help this young man from Framingham who is having a health crisis and needs our help.
