 JENNINGS, LA
7-year-old Gracie Zaunbrecher went to a gymnastics meet last weekend to compete with her team, something that she loves. At the meet, however, her balance was off. She was stumbling and disoriented. Two days later,  she underwent an MRI and was diagnosed with DIPG, a rare and aggressive brain tumor in the part of the brain stem called the pons, which controls essential bodily functions such as heartbeat, breathing, swallowing, eye movement, eyesight, and balance.

Gracie's parents, Maile and Byron, learned the devastating statistics on DIPG -- the tumor is inoperable and incurable. These are words that no parent should ever have to hear.


Sweet little Gracie will soon begin radiation treatments with the hopes of shrinking the tumor to releive pressure on her brain and keep her comfortable. 

Gracie is the sweetest child you could ever know. She is just a fun-loving, kind-hearted little girl who bring joy to everyone she meets. The middle child of big sister, Zoie, and little brother, Colton, Gracie has always inspired the whole family with her kind spirit and rock-solid faith beyond her years.    




Gracie's mother, Maile is a teacher and her father, Byron, a farmer by trade.   But as of now, they are both caregivers and prayer warriors, desperate for a miracle for their precious daughter. 

Please help this family cover the unimaginable expenses that they will incur through medical treatments, travel, and loss of work. This family needs to focus 100% of their energy on Gracie and not be burdened by the mounting expenses. Any help that you can give financially or through prayer will be so greatly appreciated!!!



WE LOVE YOU GRACIE!!! STAY STRONG!!

Hi there, If you haven't already looked into Siteman Cancer Center, their work in stem cells saved my friend, and he's had nothing but good things to say about them. I hope that one of the breakthroughs in research brings this to a positive conclusion. I shared this campaign with him and he messaged his doctor to see if they have any active research in DIPG going. If they do I'll post again :) Hugs to Gracie from all my dogs, cats, frogs, and geckos.
