This is the full story on what The Mading Family is going through:Averi Marie Mading is a 15 year old girl who was born and raised in Bonita Springs, FL. Averi is the third of five children; Averi's older brother Cody passed away from brain cancer at St. JudeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hospital at August 31, 2010 at the age of 17. Now his sister, Averi is battling for her life from both Anaplastic Astrocytoma brain cancer and colon cancer. In the past year Averi has had a colectomy, and several surgeries to remove brain tumors; just to name a few.After seeking opinions from many doctors, Averi and her parents were told that she has a 0-10% chance of survival. With no hope in the U.S., Averi's mom and grandmother were able to find a treatment not available in the U.S. The treatment is in Spain, which is hoped to be life saving. Since arriving in Spain Averi has had many complications and required additional surgeries, much of which is not covered by their health insurance. However, the treatment seems to be working well to keep the cancer at bay thus far.We are reaching out to anyone who can help us provide the necessary funds for Averi to continue to fight against this horrible condition. If you are able to give even just $10 it will help for this amazing cause. Our family is in grave need, especially having to go through this a second time and we may have to do it again in a few years with the youngest child, Isabella.Please reach into your hearts, even if you cannot afford a small donation, positive thoughts and prayers for Averi and our family are just as important.Averi's parents were both carriers of a rare recessive gene that predisposes her to cancer, this is called Lynch Syndrome, to which there is NO cure. Out of the five children; Cody, Averi and their 6 year old sister, Isabella, have been diagnosed with Lynch Syndrome.Help Averi FIGHT cancer !
