Addison is a spunky and sweet ray of sunshine. She loves to sing, dance, play Minecraft and Roblox, have quality family time, ride on her golf cart, play with her American Girls dolls and hang out with her older sister.
She is just like any other 9-year-old with the exception that she is fighting for her life. In March 2019, at the age of 6, Addison was diagnosed with DIPG, an aggressive and inoperable form of brain cancer which at the present time has no cure. What started as a sudden inward eye and a few slight headaches turned into her and her families worst nightmare. Addison was given 9-18 months to live. In addition to 52 sessions of radiation, Addison has participated in two clinical trials that were funded directly by The Cure Starts Now and is over 3 years post diagnosis. She is not just living, she is THRIVING!
Addison has so much more life to live and her and her family often say "This fight ain't over!"
