My Story

Elizabeth is one tough cookie! :) She is a spitfire of a three year old whom has had quite a time in her young life. She has survived a desmoplastic infantile astrocytoma...a brain tumor. We are so blessed that it was benign. It was removed when Lizzy was just 3 months old. The tumor damaged the nerves that connect the eye to the brian and has had 3 eye surgeries already as well so far. There are still peices of the tumor in her brain and has continued MRI's to make sure they DON'T grow. Elizabeth is an amazingly strong, wonderful, beautiful little girl who continues to make her family smile on a daily basis.
