In late September of 2009, sweet Lila was diagnosed with brain cancer. The doctors believe it is likely that she was born with this tumor. It is a multi-focal, Grade 2 astrocytoma.
In October 2009, Lila began the first of 10 rounds of very intense chemotherapy treatments. They involved her being at the hospital for three, 8-hour days of treatment every 4 weeks. We saw results and stability with these drugs. Lila's doctors were very encouraged by the results.
On November 8 and 9, 2014, The Lilabean Foundation will be involved in the inaugural Across the Bay 10K Run! LBF will once again be partnering with Nationwide insurance to raise money and awareness for pediatric brain cancer research! For more details, visit www.bridgerace.com.
