Conrad's Story


After experiencing migraines for several weeks, Conrad visited multiple doctors to determine what could be the cause of his headaches. He underwent a CAT scan and physicians discovered a large brain tumor – a pilocytic astrocytoma. He would need surgery immediately to remove it. Conrad’s parents chose Texas Children’s Hospital for their son’s care and the surgery was a great success. Now in high school, Conrad has returned to his daily activities and has a bright future ahead of him. Visit the Texas Children's Neuroscience Center for more information.
