More about Madeline’s Diagnosis: Seven-year-old Madeline St. Pierre is geared up for another battle against “Harry the Tumor.” 16 months ago Madeline underwent brain surgery to remove a benign tumor that was starting to have adverse effects on her every day life. Since her surgery, every few months, Madeline would have a follow up visit and all was going well until her last appointment on September 4th (her second day of 2nd grade). Unfortunately, the brain scan showed growth since her last scan in May. At this point another surgery would be too risky for Madeline. The decision was made to On September 23, Madeline began what will be 52 weeks of weekly chemotherapy treatment at Dana Farber in Boston. Madeline has once again demonstrated her strength and resiliency and she is truly is one “tuff cookie.”
