Love For Lily

Lily’s Story

Lily is a polite, cheerful little two-and-a-half year-old girl. Like most toddlers, she loves the outdoors, balloons, bubbles, building Duplos, drawing, learning shapes, colors, and numbers, and watching her favorite shows. Her favorite colors are red, like hearts; and light blue, because it’s the color of the sky, water (she loves to swim), and her favorite toy train on YouTube which she watches with her oldest brother. She also likes watching Davey and Goliath, Little Einsteins, Toy Story 3, Frozen, and The LEGO Movie with her siblings, and sitting around the dinner table listening to them laugh, joke, and share their day.

Lily was recently diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma. The oncologists are hopeful that her estimated year long of various treatments in Roseville and San Francisco will have a positive outcome. She is a trooper, and handling a difficult situation extremely well. She has a bright future, a beautiful smile, and the way she says meal time grace, or please and thank you will melt your heart. We are convinced God has great plans for her.

Lily and her family are from Tracy, CA and are able to go home on the weekends, but stay at the Sacramento Ronald McDonald House during the week because of early morning appointments and treatments. She was a wonderful help when she drew the winners of the 2015 Sacramento Car Raffle benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern California.
