Help Maddie's Family
Maddie and her family have put up quite the fight against Pediatric Brain Cancer. When the spunky 16 year old was first diagnosed with a Glioblastoma Multiforme brain tumor in the left thalamus in November of 2011, we told her to "Fight like a tiger", and she did just that.
Maddie went through surgery, chemo, and radiation treatments. She endured more than any 16 year old should have to. Throughout her fight, she maintained her "sass" and determination.
Unfortunately, the tumor stopped responding to conventional therapies. Maddie had hoped to have another surgery to remove more of the tumor. However, the Dr.'s found that the cancer had spread into multiple tumors on her brain. Her cancer has spread aggressively and Maddie is now receiving Hospice care.
Maddie's family is preparing to send her home to be with Jesus, a task that no family is ever prepared to do for a 16 year old child. Maddie's fight with Pediatric Brain Cancer has left the family with many financial needs, including the need to pay for services. Any assistance that you can provide will be very much appreciated.
Maddie also has a Wells Fargo account under Maddie Brown's Fight Fund.
Maddie will be moving to Madonna in Lincoln. Please continue to send your prayers and love for Maddie. Let her know that we appreciate the fighter that she is. Maddie's story can be followed at:

She is VICTORIOUSLY dancing, singing, and shining down on us from Heaven. The family is so very thankful for all the support they have received, both monetarily and through your words of prayer and encouragement.
We are HALF way to helping Maddie's family pay for her services. Keep on sharing and caring. God Bless
Update from Joy tonight:
Maddie and I are at Children's in the ER. We couldn't quite control the pain with the meds we have at home and Maddie's anxiety about the surgery Monday is through the roof. She seems very confused too. Called the on call Dr for Hem/Onc and she agrees we should bring her in as there is nothing stronger than what we already have at home can be called in for her. It kinda stinks, but we are hoping they admit her until surgery Monday.
