In November, we were able to be apart of the WZPL Make A Wish Radio A Thon, to grant our second wish! Brianna is a sweet little girl that Grace met doing chemo on Tuesdays mornings. They became instant friends. Grace ended up becoming a big support for Brianna on those mornings. Just mention Grace’s name and you will see the biggest smile on Brianna’s face. Brianna also has a life threatning brain tumor and has been undergoing chemo and has also done radiation. She was diagnosed in December of 2010.
Brianna has had a difficult time and is undergoing speech, physical and occuaptional therapies. She recently was in the hospital because she was unable to swallow. After a Ct Scan it revealed that she had calcium build up(caused by radiation) and it was putting pressure on the area f the brain that controls swallowing. Brianna then had to have a feeding tube placed. You can only imagine how difficult it has been on the family…Brianna can only have suckers and popsicles, so family dining is tough!
Maeci made a special visit to see Brianna during her last hospital stay and Grace and Bri continue to have their Tuesday morning date every other week.
The McQueen family were able to take their trip to Disney World the end of December and brought in the New Year with Mickey Mouse! They had a wonderful trip!!
