Ansley's Story

On July 2, 2010, Ansley at the tender age of 12  was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor called diffuse infiltrating Astrocytoma.  It is so rare that doctors told the family there had only been a dozed or so documented cases in the last 20 years. It's even rarer in children, with Ansley being just the "third or forth" diagnosed with the tumor. Ansley battled for 16 months before earning her angel wings on November 23, 2011.
