Denise Butler Fund

We appreciate your consideration of contributing to this "Go Fund Me" for both Denise AND Madison Butler. For those of you who know our family, know that Madison at the age of 3 was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, and unlike the carefree days of toddlerhood experiencing independence, experiences and just being a child, she spent her day's living at Children's Hospital fighting "cancer" for her life.  
A celebration was had when we could acknowledge with joy the 5 year remission mark for Madison.  But being cancer free still has its price, after what she had gone through to get there, many medical issues still ensued after that 5 year celebration... along with the countless medical expenses.  A senior in high school now Madison is faced with another challenge, and ultimately we know she is gonna take name's and kick some a** when all is said and done! While suffering from debilitating migraines and other medical conditions,  the Drs. discovered a small cyst behind her right ear a couple of years ago and have been watching it religiously. The "cyst" has made some changes and is now growing towards her brain stem, and so she will be undergoing brain surgery in the next week or so. The family does not know if the "cyst/mass" is cancerous at this time and it will be sent out for biopsy... but I assure you this "faithful" family will be lifting lots of prayers to the heaven's that it is benign.  Madison is a very strong young woman now, and a spunky fighter just like her momma! We are so proud of her, and thank you for lifting her up in prayer for a complete healing during this difficult time.
NOW, if that wasn't challenging enough...Denise, Madison's mother was just diagnosed with breast cancer (we do not know what stage it is in as of yet but do know it is an agressive form). She will undergo chemotherapy, as well as a double mastectomy over the next few months. As a mother who was by her baby girl's bedside day in and day out at Children's hospital, watching her daughter fight....you can only imagine that at this time faced with her own situaton, that her daughter's surgery takes precedence over her own treatments. So as soon as Madison embarks on her recovery, Denise will then start her own. 
Our family asks for prayers of healing not only for Madison and Denise, but also for strength, understanding, and patience for Denise's husband Buddy and their oldest daughter Alexis.  
In times of trial, our family as a whole stands faithful and determined in trusting God's "big picture" and know that by this amazing venue of "Go Fund Me" we can help alleviate the stress and hardship from a financial aspect for the Butler family as the inevitable medical expenses come to fruition.
So often when it is brought to our attention that someone we love, someone we care about, and even at times total strangers,  are faced with difficult challenges in life, we ask "what can I do to help?" 
"Go Fund Me" provides that foundation to do just that, so that financial burdens can be lessened by the generousity and care of others.
We hope that in this case you will consider donating to the Butler family. 
It is very much appreciated, so "thank you" and God Bless.
