Organized by: Mark Reighard

Ellie (Ellen Kowalki) is a 10 year old girl recently diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor (Medulloblastoma). She has had two surgeries and is now fighting an infection. As soon as the infection is under control, they will begin the long road of radiation and chemo. Thankfully, her parents have insurance and she is in one of the best hospitals in the country (Children's Hospital, St. Louis), but her mom had to go on leave from work and the bills are piling up quickly. Even with insurance, an illness like this can devastate a family financially. Many people have asked what they can do to help... Well here is one way... if everyone gives a little, Matt and Carrie can focus on Ellie's treatment and not worry about how they are going to pay their bills and the extra expenses of her treatments.
