This is My beautiful niece Addison. She is a special little girl who needs a little help right now. At the age of 4 she was diagnosed with AVM arteriovenous malformation. Her family knew they had a long road ahead of them. She is now 9 and has been doing her regular vision checks and angiograms to see if her AVMs are in remission. She has gone through so much and has grown into a strong little girl, she always has a smile on her face and is the sweetest girl you'll ever meet. She loves to dance and most of all loves her family. She having a great weekend with her family and had a sudden set back. She had a sudden headache come on and went into a seizure. She ended up being life flighted to Portland. She had an Acute Sub Dermal Hematoma. She is stable and sedated right now. Waiting to hear from the Drs what the next step will be. My sister Mandy and her husband will never ask for help, that's not who they are. With their full time jobs and 3 children, they are busy with soccer practices, ballet rehearsals and hectic work schedules, they are amazing parents. I'm asking for help for them, they would appreciate any help they would get. We love you Addi, stay strong.

Update from Will....

Good evening,

It's been a very long day, and we are excited to report that Addi had a very successful radiation treatment and was able to walk out and ring the bell at the radiation treatment centers exit. She did, in fact, get to rock out to her favorite Dove Cameron music. It was a little ruff for Addi as she had to sit perfectly still for an hour strapped in and cried a little when she was uncomfortable. The Dr explained that due to her unique shaped AVM it took them a total of 8 shots of radiation to get what they wanted for a successful outcome. We will be back in Portland in 4 months for a follow-up MRI to see how the treatment worked. I will keep everyone updated between now and then. Addi's looking forward wants have a radiation party and celebrate the big double digit birthday on Tuesday. Words cannot express how thankful for all of the great posts from everyone as they helped keep a smile on Addi's face.

Love the Irey's

UPDATE on our Princess Addi:
She returned to Portland last Wednesday for her scheduled MRI to see how well she was doing without the drain to her brain. Dr said it was looking good, but still had some swelling, so he will give it another 6 weeks and she will go back for another MRI and they will proceed from there to set up the surgery for removal of the AVM thru radiation. Please keep her in your prayers and I will update as to when she will meet with doctors again. So far, everything going as her doctors thought it should. Thank you everyone! ❤️

From my mom today......Update: Addi is doing awesome at home! Mandy says she wants to be a social butterfly but limiting where and when she goes out. She has had her best friend spend the night with her and is playing with all her 'presents' that have been sent to her! I think she was just overwhelmed by everything she received. I did a FaceTime with her (and Mandy) last night and to talk and play around with her was priceless! You can't even tell what she went thru. She did however, give Mandy a scare when Mandy found her in bed sleeping. She asked if she was ok and Addi said her head was hurting so she wanted to lay down! Mandy then started worrying of course but after getting some fluids and something to eat, she was ok. Whew! Mandy told her not to just go lay down, she needs to let people know if anything like that happens. ❤️.
We are still awaiting the Dr. to schedule the radiation treatment needed to remove this AVM. I will keep you posted when I hear. Please keep her in your prayers so that she continues to get stronger for this treatment. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and letters of encouragement! ..

I saw your page and felt like you may find my story brings you some hope. I had an AVM rupture in my right temporal lobe at age 16 in 1996. I went through much of the same your Addi is going through now. After a craniotomy and PT, OT, & Speech Therapy for memory, I am now a 35 year old mommy, with a Masters degree! Every situation is different as is every brain, but know that no one thought I'd make it through the night, & here I am almost 20 years later! (It made me smile to see her photos-I am a red head and was also a dancer, just like your Addi.) Stay strong sweet Addi! I am praying for you!
