Cassidy Lynn Ulrich, a sweet and loving One year old, has recently been diagnosed with brain cancer. On Thursday, February 20, 2020, at New York Presbyterian- Weill Cornell Medical Center, she underwent surgery to remove a large tumor on her brain. The neurosurgeon, Dr. Mark Souweidane, was successful at removing 98%-100% of the tumor. Her mother Alaina (Gach), a high school special education teacher in Westchester County, and her father Brian, a FDNY Lieutenant, will need to remain at her side throughout this ordeal. Since then (3 months ago) she has undergone chemotherapy and recently had another 9 hour brain surgery to help with the ongoing seizures Cassidy faces. She is now at home healing and doing what she does best at kicking cancers ass and becoming the Cassidy she was always meant to be.
