Up until Wednesday October 30th, 2019, Ella Sorrell was a healthy 11 year old girl. She loves arts and crafts, swims for her local community pool, as well as spending time with her mother Gwen, father Bret, and younger brother Tate.
On October 30th, Ella was complaining of a headache and blurry vision. Gwen and Bret took her to the local E.R. She was then transported to Children’s Hospital in D.C. where she remained for the next 7 days. In that time, doctors performed a MRI where they found a mass in the base of Ella’s skull. A biopsy was performed on November 4th resulting in cancer. The tumor is currently wrapped around Ella’s spinal cord leaving doctors with little more to do surgically. Ella will undergo radiation treatment starting on November 18th to try and shrink the tumor.
The goal of this fundraiser is to raise enough money to send Ella and her family on her dream vacation to Disney as well as help with medical expenses, gas, food, and time off from work.
