When Lilee-Jean was 10 mos, she was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, a very agressive type of brain cancer. Over 1yr later, she continues to seek a successful treatment. Help her family cover the costs of travel & treatment to give LJ the best life possible.
Lilee's last 2 MRI's showed first that there is a recurrent tumour and second that it has become very active, growing 4X its size in 6 weeks. Lilee had been on a maintenance chemotherapy program after the first tumor shrunk and appeared to be almost dead. The hope was to get her to 3 years old so that they could use radiation to kill any remaining tumor. Unfortunatley this is no longer an option.

Her oncology team and her family are searching for clinical trials, searching for a miracle, and we are prepared to send them at the drop of a hat, but there is so little research and very little success when it comes to treating GBM, especially at this age, that we have not been able to find anything for her. Lilee will be started on a medical treatment that they hope will give the family as much quality time as possible. And our goal is to ensure that every single second is cherished. We would like to help with the responsibilities in life that don't go away because someone is sick and give sweet Lilee-Jean, her Mommy and Daddy every precious moment to live each day that they have to its fullest. We don't know when the hospital will once again be her life, could be a day, a week, could be a month, regardless, we would very much like to ensure home is always there for her, and while she feels good, they have the ability to create a lifetime of memories.
The funds raised will help pay rent, car lease, or a trip to a sunny place if there is to be no treatment, before she's too ill to travel.

About the song & video
"Pray for Lj" was written by LJ's father and his band Pardon by Striptease. 100% of all proceeds from the sale of the ‘Pray (for LJ)’ digital iTunes single will be donated to Children’s Hospital.
In December 2011, Nickleback heard about the story and donated $50,000 to the cause, which was later matched with a $50,000 from Warner/Chappell Music.
