Charity for April & May 2012 is: Fight for Maddie

We have choosen to help a five year old girl, Maddie, who has a malignant brain tumor.  We are collecting items to send Maddie with the hope that these gifts will bring her some joy and help make her feel like a princess.

We are also sending money to help pay for Maddie's medical expenses.  And we are supporting her mom and dad by sending items in an attempt to help make this time a bit more bearable for them.

Here is a something about Maddie that we have copied from Maddie's Facebook page.
"Many of you know about our precious Maddie, who is five years old,   and was recently diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM), a very aggressive malignant brain tumor. Although this the most common brain tumor in adults, it only accounts for roughly 9% of pediatric brain tumors, translating to affecting only .00036% of all children in America! We are establishing this Facebook page to share information and request your support, prayers, well-wishes and contributions for help in fighting this terrible disease."
