My name is Kristin. I am trying to raise money to help offset my daughter Adeline's medical expenses. She is a normal, happy, energetic (most of the time), 7 year old girl, with the exception that she has brain cancer. In December of 2014 we moved to a new town, 500 miles from home, when her dad took a new job. She was sick for over a month with strep and constant headaches (all through Christmas and her birthday). Then, on January 14th, we took her to the ER when her eye started turning inward and she had double vision. Fearing the strep had spread to her brain, they did a CT scan. What they found was not an infection, it was in fact a brain tumor. That evening we traveled to a childrens hospital 3 hours from our new home. We ended up staying almost 3 weeks. In those 3 weeks, she endured 2 brain surgeries, 4 MRI's and many other pokey things. During one surgery they removed a tennis ball size chunk of the tumor (only 50-60% of the tumor they said).
She has been officially diagnosed with a stage 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme.
She is now getting ready to undergo 6.5 weeks of radiation and chemotherapy. The duration of which, we will be staying in the city 3 hours from home. Hopefully dad and her little sister will come down to visit on the weekends, as I imagine she is going to be too exhausted to travel. This is where the funds part come in. I would like to raise enough money to help cover expenses while we are away for her radiation and chemotherapy. Thank you and God Bless.
