Adleigh was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma or DIPG on November 2, 2017. Dipg is a rare terminal cancer that impacts the Pons and is inoperable. Upon being diagnosed she was given 2 months without treatment or 6-18 months with treatment. We have chosen treatment for her. The doctors can offer no cure but can gives treatments to give her time where she will be almost normal for a period of time before the tumor will spread and ultimately take her from us. The question we as parents must choose is quality or quantity. We have chosen quality. Radiation which is the only real treatment for DIPG kids is giving us the gift of quality time with her.
She is a vibrant, energetic, caring, lovable 3 year old. She loves her friends at daycare, puzzles, coloring, painting people’s nails and camping has always been her favorite thing to do since she was a baby.
There has been so much love and support shown for her and we would just like to thank everyone that has chose to follow her and her journey. I will try to update this site as often as possible. She also has a Facebook page -HOPE FOR ADLEIGH.
Thank you so very much for your love, support and prayers,
