Do you believe in magic?
Hadley still does! =)
Our sweet girl, Hadley, was born on September 27th, 2000. She was perfect and gorgeous and we were so thankful for her. After a few years of going around and around with doctors about something being 'wrong' we finally got a definite answer. Yes, there was something wrong (I wasn't losing my mind after all). Hadley was diagnosed on 4-22-04 at the age of 3 with a very large brain tumor. She has been on treatment for her tumor since then. In February of this year we got the news that she had relapsed. In addition to the original tumors on the right side of her brain, she now had tumor on the left side of her brain. The new tumor was growing much quicker than the original tumor areas. On May 30th we did another MRI that revealed even more growth and spread. The following week we, with her medical team, made the heartbreaking decision to end treatment and let Hadley have some magic in her life.
Hadley is a 7 year old little girl who loves life. She is happy and funny and loves to be the center of attention. She loves all things frilly and girly. She has a beautiful innocence that I am very envious of and grateful for
Hadley has two brothers Keegan (6) and Liam (4). They are great boys who have been wonderful brothers to Hadley. She loves them both dearly. I'm sure that the compassion and acceptance they have learned through Hadley's journey will carry them far in life.
Hadley's daddy, my husband, is a Petty Officer in the US Coast Guard. We'd love nothing more than to be able to grant Hadley's every wish while she is here with us. But, like most families these days, we are living paycheck to paycheck. If you are willing and able to help us give Hadley some magic we would be eternally grateful.
