Please consider helping the Draheim’s, a Berlin Maryland all around great family of five. Lance & Lauren have dedicated their entire life to education. They have three beautiful children- Lawson, Lakelyn and Baby L.B. Up until just recently Lakelyn, 4 years old has been a smart, healthy firecracker that loves gymnastics & dance!
Lauren just recently lost her mom to brain cancer.
Her last few days have been absolute hell!
Headed to DC Children’s hospital with Lakelyn for brain tumor (suspected brain cancer).
No details yet
There are no words…just pain…unbearable pain that I could never imagine possible…
Please God have Mercy
Update: Neurosurgeon said tumor is inoperable so they want to biopsy tomorrow to see what we are dealing with.
The Draheims are the nicest family you will ever meet, they need our support. As they would help anyone in the world please consider helping them, while they navigate through this insurmountable difficult time.

Today was not the news we were hoping for! Due to today's diagnosis we have increased the GO FUND ME amount see below

Journal Entry by Lauren Draheim — 2 hours ago
We got the news no parent wants to hear. We are facing the unthinkable. Lakelyn has DIPG Grade 4 with H3K27M mutation.

My only option for radiation is to move up to DC for her to get it. Be away from my family and friends and support system. There are many options for treatment and none are proven. Some have never even been done. We are lost. We are frozen. We are facing this red folder with tears of heartbreak and sorrow, looking at my precious baby with her pigtail braids and beautiful hazel eyes begging to go to dance class.


How can anyone survive this pain?
