WICHITA Kansas - A Wichita family is a getting a financial lift in a big way. A local flight club member heard about a 2-year-old girl named Bella that has been fighting a brain tumor. Now, they are working to raise money to help the family.
“Its heart warming to think that you hear a lot of bad news in the world, but there are good people that do care,” said Bella’s dad Josh Bush.
It’s been year since a simple accident lead to the terrifying diagnosis. Josh Bush says his daughter fell and hit her left eye on a kitchen counter.
At first they thought she was fine, until they noticed a twitch in her eye two weeks later. A visit to several doctors ended with news of cancer.
“We just knew brain and tumor I always thought it was a death sentence,” said Bush.
Last September, Bella’s family temporarily moved into a hotel in Memphis, so that she could have surgery. Doctors could only remove a fourth of the tumor or else she would go blind.
Despite doctors originally saying there was nothing they could do, Bella’s parents just found out her recovery is nothing less than a miracle.
“Actually [we] found out her tumor is shrinking and part of its dying. We just consider it a God thing,” said Bush.
Bella still has six months left of chemo therapy.
The Bella Mae Bush Fundraiser will be held October 12th and 13th at Clearview Field in Milton, Kansas. This will be an all day event complete with remote control airplanes and helicopters. For more information call 316-680-5239
