‘Super Hero Addy’ Fighting to “Shake off Cancer”
This little girl's family has reached out to the local community here in Maine to ask for help. According to their gofundme page, Adalynn's mother noticed Addy wasn't herself about two months ago. When they were walking up the driveway she needed to be carried, her scrapes and bug bites (like all children are covered with) weren't healing, and her spunk just didn't seem to be there.
Her parents brought her in for a blood test and by the next day the doctor called to tell them Addy has MDS and would require a bone marrow transplant. Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) are a group of diverse bone marrow disorders in which the bone marrow does not produce enough healthy blood cells, and is a type of cancer.
The family is asking for donations to help her family while Addy received treatment in Boston (which is not covered by insurance), and to also help the family while they await a bone marrow match which costs between $10k and $15k.
