Tumor patient, Christopher Bowman, received life saving surgery

Christopher Bowman

Last Friday we showed you a very optimistic Christopher Bowman leaving for Oklahoma for medical treatment for his tumor. Late this evening, we were informed that the young man has undergone a five and a half hour medical procedure to catheterize most of the tumor. This procedure was done to remove four pieces of the tumor that were attached to the spine and feeding off Bowman’s blood supply. While the family was very hopeful that Bowman would walk again, the doctors said that their expectations weren’t realistic. Although Bowman is doing well, the doctors in the U.S say that there has been some neurological damage and their preliminary prognosis is that Bowman may not be able to use his legs. According to Emilio Zabaneh, who has been helping for the past three years, Bowman is expected to return to Belize in three weeks but will go back to the U.S in three months for a follow up medical procedure.
