A little about our niece:
Our sweet baby, Ella, (7 years old) has a Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, Tumor.
Diffuse intr...insic pontine gliomas (DIPG) are highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumors found at the base of the brain. They are glial tumors, meaning they arise from the brain's glial tissue—tissue made up of cells that help support and protect the brain's neurons. These tumors are found in an area of the brainstem (the lowest, stem-like part of the brain) called the pons, which controls many of the body’s most vital functions such as breathing, blood pressure, and heart rate.
Diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas account for 10 percent of all childhood central nervous system tumors. Approximately 300 children are diagnosed with DIPG each year. While DIPGs are usually diagnosed when children are between the ages of 5 and 9, they can occur at any age in childhood. These tumors occur in boys and girls equally and do not generally appear in adults.
Once again, I can honestly tell you from my heart that we feel strength from your prayers. Please continue to pray....we need it. We continue to thank God for our blessings, pray for a miracle, and pray that each day we are aware and stand firm that God will bring good out of this situation. Love the Bothwell Family
We serve an awesome GOD who performs miracles everyday! Thank you to everyone who takes time out of their day to pray and make small donation.
