THE STORY:

CrossFit 908 wrote -

CLICK "SEE MORE" FOR REGISTRATION AND DONATION INSTRUCTIONS!

Four-year old Brooke Healey, daughter of Steve and Stefani, of New Providence, NJ was diagnosed in January with DIPG - Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma.  It's an inoperable tumor located in the Pons sack located at the top of the brain stem.  The Pons is responsible for all vital functions and any attempt to operate and remove the tumor has been 100% fatal.  It's very aggressive and quickly affects a child's motor skills.

The Healey family will be forced to seek alternative approaches to fight this battle on behalf of Brooke and will incur lofty medical expenses along the way. Since there is no clinically tested method of treating this tumor, other than the short term effects of radiation, insurance will not cover most of the costs of any treatments beyond radiation therapy.
