Marlee May is a funloving one and a half year old girl who is about to take on the biggest fight of her little life.

Around the end of April 2017, her eye started swelling up, so her mother, Josie took her to the hospital. What they assumed was just a bug bite was so much more.

The doctors told Josie and James that their daughter had a tumor behind her right eye. Within the next couple days the doctors did a biopsy to reveal that the tumor was cancerous. Stage Two Rhabdomyosarcoma was their diagnosis. Marlee will begin chemotherapy and radiation on May 9th and will likely continue that as treatment for the next year. It will be difficult for her little body to handle, but she is a fighter.

Any of the funds raised from this campaign will be used to pay hospital bills and basic living necessities for Mar's parents. Nice thoughts, prayers, and donations are gratiously accepted by Marlee and her family. 

Thank you for the support!

Just a little update after a long break. Marlee has fought her little heart out throughout her journey with cancer and unfortunately, it is expected that our little baby only has a little amount of time left. As the donations from this campaign have been going to treatment and medical related things, it is changing now, and any money raised here will go to making the most out of Mar's time with us. Thank you to everyone who donates time, money, and love to Mar and our family.

How blessed are we to receive support from all over and from people that don't even know our family. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart everyone!
