PLEASE HELP CATHERINE

This is my oldest son Dans little niece and she has been diagnosed with a brain tumoe. Her name is Catherine Shriver and she will be 12 on Oct first. She had been complaining about headaches for quite a while and every Doctor they took her to said she was making it up (which means to me that they are calling a child a liar) It was actually an eye Dr that found it when doing an eye exam.

After her parents persistance and making them do more tests the dreaded news was found nad it has been a real struggle for the parents and Catherine. Such a trusting little girl trying to do what the adults say she has to do a
They reside in GA and the Father "Eric" is in the Army and has done 4 tours in Iraq and the Army didn't send him home when the Mother got the news...The red cross sent him home
The parents would like to take her on a vacation before she goes blind so she can have some memories. The Army is taking care of the medical bills but they need money for a Camera and to take her to Sea World. She loves animals and wanted to be a vet when she grew up.

There has been a lot of stress on the whole family and I can't imagine in my wildest dreams what I would do if this was my child. She has lost some of her memory and it will more than likely get worse
Here is a link to Catherines Web site that was put up for her and I will post a link on my sidebar if anyone would like to donate..even $1.00 or $5.00 or as much as you would like to donate would be helpful.

Thank you to all of you that make a donation..to make a donation just go to PP and click on send money and then her email is sweet_sourk2000@yahoo.com and then click on personal and then gift..no charges that way

She will be in my thoughts. I hope she gets well. This is so sad a child this young having a brain tumor. Its also scary to me because I get migranes.. 3-4 times a week usually. I have been to the dr. They give me medicine and say it's nothing every single time.

well have a great weekend :)

Oh my Gosh!!! I can't even imagine being her or her parents. It is so unfortunate that some doctors do not believe children in these cases. Like these kids would make stuff up. I will keep everyone in my prayers.
