On behalf of Josh, Jamie and the kids, we would like express our deep gratitude and appreciation for all of the donations, prayers, and support for Liliana during this difficult time. We are overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity and help spreading the word. 

Update on Liliana’s health - Last Wednesday Liliana underwent surgery to place a medical device called a shunt which relieves pressure on the brain caused by fluid buildup. The doctors were able to biopsy the tumor last week and the official diagnosis is a Grade III Anaplastic Astrocytoma. This cancer is an aggressive growing form of Glioma, or a tumor on the brainstem. 

The next step is applying for a clinical trial at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. If accepted, the family will have to relocate to Cincinnati for at least six weeks to begin treatment. 

Please continue to keep Liliana and her family in your prayers. This Wonder Woman loving, stuffed animal collecting, and Earth conscious little girl is so brave. 

Again, we are forever grateful at the outpouring of love and support that has been shown towards Liliana and her family. Thank you.
