Avalon Young Update
It was back on July 16, 2020 (her 26th birthday), when Avalon Young for the first time realized that something was wrong with her. However, at the time she believed that it was just a muscle spasm, and let it slide. But, in the following days, Avalon suffered numerous seizures and was forced to a hospital visit.
The doctors at first told Avalon that it was just anxiety. However, in February 2021, when Avalon wasn’t getting any better, she went under MRI which ultimately detected cancer. A few days later, she then underwent a 16-hour surgery to remove a peach-sized tumor from the front left temporal lobe of her brain.
Since the first surgery was rushed,— as it “was really important for them to get out the mass of the tumor” — a second surgery was performed in March to “get out as much as they can so when they go on with radiation and chemo.”
Overall, Avalon’s second surgery was a success, and she bears no malice toward the doctors who couldn’t immediately find the source of the problem. Instead, she blames cancer in general.
To help her battle cancer, Avalon’s mother and partner even started a GoFundMe campaign with a goal of $250 thousand. As of May 2021, it raised over $85 thousand.
