HELP AVERY ANN WITH HER BRAIN TUMOR, DREAMSCAPE FOUNDATION, SARASOTA, FL, USA
Meet Avery Rann. She is a beautiful, silly, incredibly imaginative, and crafty 6-year-old girl. Avery loves Disney Princesses, arts and crafts, making desserts with Grandma, and laughing. She lives a wonderful, happy life with her mom, Barb (Bell) Rann; dad, Russ Rann; and younger siblings, Roscoe and Charley. The Rann family live together in Sarasota, Florida among many loving family members and friends. Avery and her family are also blessed by a large network of family and friends in the Chicago area.
In July 2016, The Rann family's life was turned upside down. After complaining of headaches for several days, Avery was brought to the emergency room where a CT Scan revealed a tumor in her brain stem. She was transferred to Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago where she will undergo brain surgery to biopsy the tumor in order to determine whether the lesion is aggressive or non-aggressive and subsequent treatment options.
Surgery to remove the brain tumor is not an option given its location. However, we are praying that it is treatable in another way, so our beautiful, sweet Avery has the hope of surviving her childhood.
In the upcoming months, the Rann family will experience tremendous financial burden such as medical bills, driving Avery to and from treatment in St.Petersburg (a two-hour round trip) and unpaid time off work.
On behalf of the Rann family, thank you for your continued prayers, generosity and support.
