Bui did âreally wellâ during her surgery, and now that her body has been treated, the focus can be on her brain, her mom said.
Two GoFundMe pages have been set up to support Bui and her family as the 11-year-old undergoes treatment.
One of them had raised as of Friday, another had raised $13,848 toward a $5,000 target .
Buiâs mother said she has been âreally overwhelmedâ with the support her family has seen from the community.
