Levi Ringer started complaining of headaches in March. His mother took him to the hospital, where he was kept overnight, diagnosed with Migraines, and discharged with Migraine medications. In April, she took him back to the hospital because he was experienceing dizzy spells; and in June, she took him back with a stiff neck.
Mrs. Ringer says that the doctors refused to order an imaging study until June when she became insistent. Then she was told there was a three-month waiting list.
When a brain scan was finally performed on July 20, it was discovered that he had a brain tumor, which by that time had grown enough to have started down his spine. He was rushed into emergency surgery that failed to save his life. Levi died due to respiratory failure on August 29.
Rest in peace, Levi. My sympathy goes to his mother. My contempt to his doctors.
