on behalf of Mel Maddie
Madison Medina has been suffering from seizures since she was a year old.  Now she's three and, after multiple tests and probes, doctors have finally determined that the cause of her epilepsy is specific to a lesion in the right frontal temporal lobe.  To remove the affected tissue, and ultimately cure her condition, she requires a delicate brain surgery scheduled for December 31, 2018 at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, Texas. 

This fund is created for family and friends to help make this journey a little easier for Maddie and her family. Funds raised will help with medical expenses, as well as incidental expenses associated with her hospital stay and recovery, traveling and staying in Houston for the days surrounding surgery, cost of missed work, and expenses already accrued while navigating this difficult health issue.

Raul and I would like to thank everyone for all your generosity and love. We are extremely grateful. ❤️

This week we found out that Madisons surgery had been postponed. The most recent MRI showed some changes in her leison that the doctor was not able to explain. He will be meeting with his colleagues to discuss her case and will be getting back with us. Maddie is also now having seizure activity in the Rolandic area of her brain. She could possibly outgrow this but until they do further testing we have a lot of unanswered questions. Her testing cannot be completed until the end of January. She will have a week long stay at Texas Childrens Hospital. Please continue to keep Madison in your prayers. She is still on very strong meds that could be effecting her speech and memory.

Thank you again for all your prayers and support. We will keep you posted as more information becomes available to us.

❤️ Raul and Melissa
