Princess Ellie's Brain Cancer Journey


Two weeks ago on April 6th, our 4 year old, Ellie, suffered from a massive seizure and after several tests it was discovered that she has a tumor in the left temporal lobe of her brain. Even with insurance, the costs of her brain surgery and the recovery process are considerable. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to help with the expenses of the surgery and 2 hospital stays, along with the 3 month recovery ahead of us. We are also taking a trip to Vanderbilt to consult with their Neurology dept. Prayers are what we need the most, however in lieu of flowers or toys for Ellie, we wanted to offer another form of support for those who want to support in that way. Please know that 100% of your donation will go to Ellie's surgery and recovery related expenses. Thanks so much for the prayers and support!


***My name is Maria, aka "Melana" or "Aunt Lanie", and this is my one and only 'little' brother, his beautiful wife Jennifer, and their super-fantastic family.  I am heading up this funding effort for them, on behalf of my little 'priss pot' niece, Ellie Grace.  She, along with her 3 big brothers, are my heart as my favorite nephews and niece.  As you can see from the photos, they are a fun loving, close knit family . . . . and they've had their world rocked, to say the least.  Thank you so very much for considering any support you are able to offer! We have a long road ahead and we are believing, praying, and hoping for the best possible outcome.***
