In September of 2009 at 15 months of age, Lila was diagnosed with an inoperable, multi-focal Grade 2 astrocytoma.
Since her diagnosis, Lila has been on six different chemo regimens. Regimens have varied in the way they are administered (oral or infusion), type (traditional or trial), side effects and duration.
We have been fortunate to see first hand how ground-breaking research in the pediatric brain cancer field gives survivors time and hope.
Most recently, Lila was on a trial drug for two years, which stabilized the cancer. The trial ended in February 2016 and since then Lila has been off of all treatment. We have been the benefactors of these innovative new treatments and therapies that LBF seeks to support. Her experiences push us harder and fuel our fire to continue the battle.
Age at Diagnosis:
15 months old.
Age Now :

Type of Brain Cancer:

"We would like to express our deepest gratitude for the support and prayers over the years. Please continue to pray for Lila and all of the children who are faced with this devastating disease and please continue to support LBF. We know it takes an army. Lila’s Army!" - The Girouxs
Together we can save the lives of kids like Lila.
