Marybeth's DIPG Battle

On Halloween my 11 year old niece, Mary Beth Ezell, was diagnosed with DIPG, a disease we had never even heard of.  As we spoke with doctors and researched ourselves it became quickly apparent there was to be a very serious and challenging road ahead of them.  Her parents, Shawn Ezell & Margaret (Shelli) Parker, had noticed her "gait" was off a day or two before and then she fell and they knew it wasn't a normal trip, two days later and here we are, with this life changing information.   As a two income family, which is quickly changing due to circumstance, finances will be a huge hurdle. Marybeth has an older brother Josh, younger sister & brother Emma  & Shawn. The missed income, child care, traveling & lodging are going to be more than they can bare aside from what the insurance won't cover. They will be going back and forth between Cincinnati, OH & Saraland, AL. Seeing how quickly this disease has taken hold of her can not be put into words. PRAYERS, first and foremost we ask for your prayers. Please pray for her and our family.  Any & All prayers and donations are beyond appreciated. Mar
