On November 23rd, 2013 the Manzulenko family's life changed forever. They discovered that their sweet and precious little girl, Lily, is very sick. She was diagnosed suddenly with an inoperable, terminal, and highly aggressive tumor on her brain stem. Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). Due to the size and location of the tumor there is nothing that can be done to treat her. She is receiving steroids to help manage the swelling and symptoms of the tumor. She is terminally ill and we only have a little time left with her, weeks to a couple of months. Doctors advised the family to start making memories with the time that she has left. Both Nicole and Jordan are taking some time away from work so they can spend this precious time with Lily and their son Max. Christmas will be celebrated early this year to ensure that Lily can partake in the festivities. We are praying for a miracle and raising funds to help her and her family with their expenses.

The family wants to spend every minute they have caring for Lily and spending quality time together. Please post messages of support to the family here but respect there privacy at this time. Donations will go towards family bills, travel expenses to and from the Stollery Children's hospital, reduced wages, and many other expenses ahead.

Please help us reach our goal of raising $5,000 to help the family through this difficult time.
