Hi. My name is Rissa. The girl in the picture above, her name is Maddie and she’s my cousin on my father’s side. I don’t have anything to do with my father and I haven’t for four years. Regardless, I need her story to be told.
Maddie is a sweetheart. She’s incredibly loving. But some terrible things have been happening to her.
Here’s a copy of the last update I just received this morning from my aunt.
"Please forward to anyone who I might have missed. This is an update on Joy’s daughter, Maddie.
Within the past week, she was scheduled for surgery but the surgery has been cancelled by the doctor. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers!
It is with a completely broken heart that I send out this update. Maddie’s surgery was cancelled because on the MRI prior to surgery, the doctor found that the cancer has spread and she has multiple tumors and lesions throughout her brain and brainstem. This cancer has been super aggressive and is why she has been having the troubles she has. Maddie is declining rapidly. She is being moved up to hospice at Madonna Long-Term Care Unit later today. Hopefully visits can start tomorrow. Thank you all for your continued prayers and support! Donations for the service fund can be made to her Wells Fargo Madison Brown account: “Maddie Brown’s Fight Fund” or mailed to the home at: 4848 S. 48th St. Lincoln, NE 68516 with checks written out to the same.”
Please reblog and share as much as possible. This breaks my heart, I’ve been bawling for ages. It would mean the world to me if you would help out, any one of you.
