I thought about doing a pithy something or other for today’s post, but I just couldn’t.
My friend’s daughter Liberty is very sick.
She only just turned five at the end of August.
Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma is even scarier than it sounds. It’s a pediatric cancer – a rare one at that – in which a tumor grows around the base of the brain stem.
Without radiation treatment, Liberty has six months. The prognosis with radiation extends her time out to an additional two years.
She only just turned five.
Liberty’s first radiation treatment is Tuesday. In support, we are all wearing red. Or something with Hello Kitty. Or both, if possible.
Consider supporting her, too. She needs all the support she can get.
