This page is for Lily LaRue Anderson, age 6, born July 1st, 2008.  Twin sister to Brady Anderson.  Little sister to Danny Knapp and Jasmine Anderson. Lily can be followed at: www.facebook.com/lilylarueanderson 
Lily was diagnosed with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) on May 6th, 2014, with no prior signs.  This is a disease that is in desperate need of a cure.  It is impossible to remove a tumor in this area and we don’t know what causes a diffuse pontine glioma.
Lily is so smart, funny, and loves life.  She won her first poetry essay at 5 years old.  She is an animal lover from chihuahuas, unicorns, owls, monkeys, and even worms.  She loves taking photos, making videos, dancing, and doing silly impressions.  Lily is always ready to show you a new trick, tell you a joke, and sing you a song.  You are guaranteed a good laugh and big smile. She loves to entertain all ages and she is bright star to her entire family and friends.  She is loved by so many, especially her aunts, uncles, many cousins, and grandparents.
This fundraising is to support Lily and her family.  This money will be used for expenses associated with medical care, travel, and Lily.
Going forward, this journey is very new for us all.  Lily will be traveling to PA, MD, and others for treatments.  Since this is very new, the treatment plans are still to be determined. 
5% of your donation fee goes to GOFUNDME. The rest to Lily.  Any amount amount helps.   Also, please pray for Lily and a miracle.

In Our Hearts by Rose M. de Leon
We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have is memories.
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake.
With which we'll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
We have you in our heart.

It is with a broken heart that we inform you of Lily's eternal rest. She departed the unconditional love of her parents on April 6, 2015 at 7:01 am. She left us to run, dance, sing and hula hoop. Lily fought this 11 month battle with such bravery and we are all so proud of her. Barbara, Brian, Danny, Jasmine, and Brady will have a special Angel watching over them always and forever. We are encouraged by the countless people she touched with her sassy humor, strength and love and thank you for all of your love in return. We are praying for comfort and direction from heaven, and we are so grateful to know that no matter what happens, Lily is forever in our hearts. ‪#‎teamlilylarue‬ ‪#‎forever‬
We love you Lily.

Hello friends and family,
I just wanted to share with you Barbara's blog she posted this morning. The link is below. It's been a very worrisome time for us and we want to thank you all for your continued prayers. “A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path. " Agatha Christie

The strength you and you family has shown us brings me to my knees. Barb, I have read all your blogs and cried happy and sad tears. I wish there was more I could have done, I hope my comments were supportive at least (I don't shut up so you always got them). She joined God on Easter Monday. She will always be with you. Someday I will explain something truly amazing and how I know she is with you. All my love, Barbara Chetirkin Devine
