Siblings, Ages 4 and 6, Diagnosed with Brain Tumors Just 2 Weeks Apart: ‘We Broke Down in Tears’

Two young siblings from Southern California were diagnosed with brain cancer just two weeks apart from each other, and now face a long road of aggressive treatment to keep the tumors at bay.

At the end of May, 6-year-old Kalea Avery experienced worsening headaches that prompted her parents to take her to a neurologist just after the Memorial Day weekendAfter performing an MRI, doctors found a tumor —  measuring 3.5 centimeters in diameter — forming near the stem of the young girl’s brain, reports the Daily Breeze, and Kalea soon underwent a four-hour surgery to remove the mass on June 11.

“We go from having a healthy baby girl who’s a skateboarder and a soccer player, who’s just loving life, to having a tumor removed from her brain,” Kalea’s father, Duncan Avery, told the Los Angeles Times.

Doctors soon discovered the mass was cancerous and diagnosed Kalea with medulloblastoma, a fast-growing cancer that forms at the base of the skull which can spread to the spinal cord and other parts of the body. Because medulloblastoma tumors grow in the area of the brain that controls complex motor and cognitive functions, patients typically display trouble with movement and balance.

The family was able to quickly get started on Kalea’s treatment, but their nightmare was far from over. Two weeks after Kalea’s diagnosis, Duncan and his wife, Nohea, noticed that 4-year-old Noah had begun taking longer-than-usual naps. They initially figured their son was depressed about his sister’s situation until he complained of headaches in the area between his eyebrows — the same spot his sister pointed to just weeks earlier. Then, the family told the TimesNoah began to lean as he walked.

Scans on June 21 revealed that Noah had a mass in the same spot as his sister, and doctors removed the tumor four days later. While tests are pending, they believe the tumor is medulloblastoma as well.

“We broke down in tears,” Duncan, a 36-year-old coach at Redondo Beach Union High School, told the Times. “How could two kids in 14 days have the exact same tumor? How does that happen?”

For the parents, the reality that both of their children had such a serious form of cancer, at the same time nonetheless, was devastating.

“My heart literally felt like it was broke apart,” Nohea, a nurse practitioner, told CBS Los Angeles. “It was being pulled out of my chest.”

A GoFundMe page to help the family with their medical expenses has raised more than $ 117,000 of its $ 150,000 goal in just four days thanks to more than 1,300 donors.

Noah and Kalea will soon start radiation and possibly chemotherapy. Fortunately, with aggressive treatment, most children can fight off medulloblastoma long enough to the point where it won’t return, according to UCSF. Both siblings will also enter physical, occupational and speech therapy to help in their recovery.

“I don’t know how I’m going to get through this, but you do. You find a way,” Nohea told KTLA. “You look at your children, you hold them and you just find a way.”

Kevin Hart Says He’s ‘Lucky’ to Be Married to Wife Eniko Parrish Weeks After Sex Extortion Scandal Broke

Kevin Hart considers himself to be one lucky man.

The comedian took to Instagram on Wednesday to express love and gratitude for his wife Eniko Parrish, calling her a “beautiful strong woman.”

“Thanking God for this beautiful strong woman that I am lucky enough to still be calling my wife today. You are truly amazing….Love you,” he wrote.

In the photo, Parrish, who is nearly nine months pregnant, is seen cradling her baby bump as she smiles for the camera.

Following the sweet message, Hart also issued a warning to his followers: negative comments don’t affect him.

“P.S please feel free to insert your hate below….Im as strong as it gets people so that s— doesn’t faze me. Im not a b—- which is why my page isn’t private. I hope your negativity makes your day better. Love ya,” he wrote.

The romantic post comes just weeks after Hart found himself at the center of a media storm over an alleged sex extortion scandal.

In a headline-making Instagram post earlier this month, the comedian opened up about an alleged extortion attempt that included a “sexually provocative” video of the comedian and another woman. Hart apologized to Parrish and his children for the incident in the Instagram video he shared on Sept. 16.

A source previously told PEOPLE that Parrish “is fully cooperating with the law enforcement investigation” in regard to her husband’s alleged extortion scandal. But the cheating allegations have taken a toll on Parrish, a second source told PEOPLE.

“She has been hounded by the press, and is very upset,” the source said. “She is trying to stay healthy and enjoy her pregnancy, but the latest drama is too much.”

Someone Broke Into Amber Rose’s Home And Straight-Up Chilled For Hours

Amber Rose is the latest celebrity to fall victim to a home invasion. 

When the homes of the rich and famous are vandalized, the intruders typically grab the goods and go. But the man who broke into Rose’s Los Angeles home early Wednesday morning stayed put for hours while she slept soundly in a nearby room, according to TMZ, which was first to report the break-in.  

He reportedly gained entry between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. through her pantry by breaking a kitchen window. Rose, along with her mother, son, assistant, and bodyguards were all in the residence at the time, but somehow no one noticed that the man remained in the home for four hours. Her assistant reportedly even got up to make food while the intruder was in the house and didn’t suspect anything. 

It wasn’t until Rose noticed shattered glass in the kitchen area later that morning and checked her home surveillance footage that she discovered video evidence of a man breaking in and then leaving hours later. She then phoned the police who are now investigating the crime. 

Nobody was harmed in the home invasion and the suspect reportedly didn’t even make off with any of Rose’s possessions. 

Rose’s home invasion is part of a string of attacks on homes of celebrities including Emmy Rossum, Kendall Jenner and Jaime Pressly in recent months. Earlier that same day, armed robbers reportedly broke into rapper A$ AP Rocky’s Beverly Grove home, a mere 12 miles away from Rose’s residence, and made off with $ 1 million in cash and jewelry.

On The Fly: Today, You Become A Man And I Become Broke

As a rule, I try not to criticize the choices of others. If they have earned or inherited their piles of money, who am I to stand in judgement of how they spend it?

Actually, I’m officially tossing that rule out the window, effective immediately. Yes, I am judging people who throw elaborate Bar Mitzvah parties. I judge them to have lost all perspective on the world in which we live. I judge them to be setting a hideous example for their kids, including the newly minted man in the family. I judge them to have taken leave of their senses along with their credit card.

In turn, they may judge me and deem me jealous because they could afford to hire a professional event stager to transform the room into a spaceship, arrange for the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders to stop by and pose for photos with the pint-sized man of the hour, and to have Steven Spielberg produce and direct a movie that is invariably titled “Sammy: The Early Years.”

Yes, they may deem me jealous, but they’d be wrong.

What is clamping my wallet shut as we plan for my son’s Bar Mitzvah is the idea that there should be any planning of this magnitude involved at all. To become a Bar Mitzvah is a rite of passage filled with ritual and tradition. I love that part of it. What we do about the party afterward, well, that’s on us. The modern-day spin on the party can cost upwards of $ 100,000 and is treated in some circles as a mini-wedding with the boy’s mother behaving like a Bridezilla. Just the other day, another Mother-of-a-Bar-Mitzvah-boy called me upset that her own mother had handed her a long list of guests she wanted to invite. “My son doesn’t even know these people,” my friend said.

And then there’s the pity you will get for trying to keep the event budget down to a month’s take-home pay. A well-meaning friend keeps sending me links to home-made centerpieces she finds on Pinterest. For under $ 11 — and, in my case, six hours of my life per centerpiece — I can make them out of candy and pipe cleaners, she told me. And if I change the theme to Legos, the possibilities are endless for matching place cards and invitations, she advises. When I told her there will be no “theme,” she couldn’t quite process it. “What will the decorations be then?” she asked.

The problem is, my idea of what a Bar Mitzvah party is is very different from modern-day conventions. I want something where the celebration’s roots go back in time the way the ceremony does, something that embraces family and community.

I want my son to have a Shtetl-style Bar Mitzvah, where we come together as a village to share the day. His special aunties will bring the freshly baked bread and I’ll slaughter the chickens. We will drink and dance and make music together in celebration of the uber-Shabbat on which my son accepted the responsibilities of adulthood as a Jew. In olden days, he would also be accepting the burden of paying the taxes for the family as well, which is why the Bar Mitzvah dad thanks G-d for his son’s ascension to manhood.

I want to have the party in our home — because the Shtetl lacks adequate and affordable banquet facilities — and all the neighbors will be invited — useful if we play music loud or late. We will remember to feed the hungry and welcome the poor to our party because joy feels best when shared. We will practice inclusiveness and not turn up our noses at inviting the kids who never get invited to join the Bar Mitzvah party circuit. We will go out of our way to make sure our elder relatives and teachers are there because without them, how would we know about our tradition and where we came from? We will welcome our friends and loved ones to our home and our pride and joy in our son will be infectious.

We do not need elaborate floral centerpieces or clever themes or matching color schemes to do any of that, do we? Do we even need a DJ? OK, maybe a DJ.

Much to my son’s initial horror, I am dead serious. I even consulted MyJewishLearning.com, my guide to all things Jewish when my rabbi isn’t available and sometimes even when she is.

According to MyJewishLearning, the Bar Mitzvah feast historically was served as the third meal of the Sabbath (dinner) and always occurred in the parents’ home. In the 17th Century, German Jews added the tradition of buying the Bar Mitzvah boy a set of new clothes for the occasion; before that, he wore his existing finery and presumably his mother didn’t spend hours getting her hair and makeup done either. An hour before afternoon prayers, the Bar Mitzvah boy went to the homes of the guests to invite them to the meal. There were no invitations with matching pre-stamped RSVP cards mailed eight weeks in advance and no Save The Date notices sent out six months before the event. At the meal, the boy delivered his speech and served as the leader in reciting the grace after eating. Amen.

I want my son’s Bar Mitzvah ceremony and party to mean something. I don’t want it to be a carbon copy of the ones he went to last week and the week before that. I don’t want to have conversations like “Jake had a photo booth and gave everyone hats” or “Dylan had a chocolate fountain plus the cake” or “Michael had a stretch limo bring all the kids to the restaurant.”

I want my son to feel special, to know we recognize the hard work and study he has put into this event in his life. I just don’t want the only take-away to be a henna air-brushed tattoo and party favors that wind up in the trash the next day anyway.

But you are probably thinking about now, “Shouldn’t the party be about him? Shouldn’t it be what he wants?” I see my son’s becoming a Bar Mitzvah as a teaching moment for all of us, so no — not necessarily. My children do not always get what they want; they get what they need to the best of our ability to afford them. I will listen to his ideas about how he sees his party and we will discuss them. We will not overspend and we will throw a Bar Mitzvah party that speaks to the values of the occasion. We will certainly compromise and my first compromise was to agree that I will not actually slaughter any chickens.

“That’s a relief, Mom,” he told me, smiling. And then, proving that he “got” the message, he showed me an ad from a vendor advertising how their photo booths will “impress all your guests.” His comment: “Like a photo booth impresses people?”

Mission accomplished.
