‘Tiny Pretty Things’ actor Barton Cowperthwaite diagnosed with brain tumour

Actor Barton Cowperthwaite, better known for Netflix’s 2020 ballet drama “Tiny Pretty Things,” is diagnosed with a brain tumour.

In an Instagram post on Friday, Cowperthwaite said that he had been diagnosed with stage 2 Glioma, adding that it is a fairly decent-sized brain tumour.

He wrote, “So…. Yesterday I was diagnosed with at least a stage 2 Glioma. It is a fairly decent-sized brain tumour. The tumour’s cells originate in the brain, so it’s not spread from cancer anywhere else in the body.”

“The only course of treatment for something like this is brain surgery. Docs so far have been confident that they’ll be able to remove most of the tumour, and that after a successful operation, and some rehab, I will be operating like my (amazing, talented, brilliant, hilarious) self. That being said it seems like scans and checkups will be a part of my life for its lengthy remainder.”

He concluded, “My family and I are taking several days to get second opinions. Planning to go into surgery middle or end of next week. I’ll do my best to be open about the journey here. I am planning on fully bouncing back to be better than my former glory! Please feel free to reach out and I’ll do my best to stay connected with as many people as I can. All my love.”

He included a picture of himself in a medical gown in his post, as well as two images of his brain scans.
