Hello Everyone, I wanted to share with you a project I decided to work on for a 16 year old girl.
Her name is Madison and she has started the
For the month of July, Madison is asking card makers to make cards for Marley Moore (right end) and her family.
Mia - Sister, Brent - Dad, Nikki - Mom and Marley Moore :)
On Friday, August 7, 2009, Marley was taken to the hospital due to concerns from her family as well as their family physician. A CT scan found a tumor (pilocytic astrocytoma), about the size of a lemon, located on her brain. Marley was immediately rushed to Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City where the doctors went to work...they began to drain fluid from her brain to release the pressure that had been causing her immense pain for weeks prior.
The tumor was located around/near the optic nerve, the brain stem, and the pituatary gland. Because it was near several very sensitive areas of the brain, the doctor's scheduled a surgery to remove as much of the tumor as they possibly could. That surgery took place on Monday, August 10, 2009. The surgeon was able to remove a larger portion than he had originally thought, but that evening, as a result of trauma to the brain from surgery, Marley suffered a stroke, leaving her right side paralyzed. You can follow the rest of her story through our journal updates. Please visit Funkycards.blogspot.com
Caring Bridge Journal Entry: "Marley is a little angel. She is beautiful, strong, little girl, and she's well on her way to fighting through this. We believe in the mighty God... one that is with her every step of the way."
