They say "The 3rd times a charm." But this kind of a 3rd time is different.
Let me pause for a moment and introduce myself and give you some background. My name is Lori. Paige came from Iowa to live with myself, my husband Rick and our daughter in Washington State when she was 15 years old. Paige, prior to the cancer had some challenging and hard times. The hardest was the loss of her mother at age 11. It would be easy to say the hand this girl has been dealt is nothing less than unfair and cruel, but we refuse to give in to hard times. Instead we encourage to learn and build off them, and that is exactly her attitude. She has been nothing short of amazing, brave and strong. Never once bitter or regretful. She carries a smile and loves life like a champ. Always carefree, loving and high spirited. In these times she keeps us strong with her powerful attitude and ever glowing smile on her face.
Paige has been accepted for treatment at the Aurora Neuroscience Innovation Institute in Milwaukee WI. This team of Dr.'s are wonderful and forward thinking. Tomorrow she will undergo surgery to install a port into the brain and a tissue sample for mapping her cancer. Then after released from the hospital we will return home for 10 day and then return for 6 weeks of 5 days a week of radiation and chemotherapy.
We are asking for help with these cost. We have housing, travel, gas, food and household needs that are in need of financial assistance with. I have contacted several organizations but unfortunately, Paige falls in that "in between" category. She is either too old due to no longer being a adolescent, not old enough, not a parent, or her cancer does not qualify for the program.
I told her, while she was fighting the second time.. We will fight for the options and pray for a cure.. She now has a necklace with those words on it.
Thank you for taking the time to read Paige's story and thank you for any and all prayers, assistance and help given.
