Ellie Sperbeck/Ellie's Hope

Well Ellie is on chemo for a second time and we still have bills hanging around from the last go around. She has a ganglioglioma brain tumor that was diagnosed at 13 months old. They were able to remove about 60% of it and chemo knocked that down more but now it's growing again. We do have a lot of medical bills that have piled up and there are people that want to help her/us while she's going through this, this would be amazing. Thank you to anyone that's even considering it. Ellie was on chemo for 15 months the first time and right now she is on a 52 week protocol where if she misses a week for a low ANC it gets added on to the end. Today was supposed to be her second treatment but her counts were already way too low. We just have to try to do our best to keep her away from anything that would make her ANC drop again, last time she went through chemo we chose to only leave the house when we absolutely had to and it worked well. We don't want her to miss weeks because we don't want to drag this out for her, we want to stay mission oriented and get this done, get the tumor under control and let her get back to being a regular kid.
