TEAM DELANEY Quote: "And though she be but Little, she is FIERCE!" Shakespeare
On September 10th 2013 Delaney Newton was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Just two days later on September 12th she endured a 12 hour brain surgery by a team of 12 doctors and nurses at Oakland's Kaiser Hospital. The doctors were able to remove the entire tumor mass in the lower back part of her brain. The subsequent pathology report revealed that tumor is indeed cancerous. In just a few short days around Oct 1st she will start chemotherapy that is expected to last at least 1 year.
Delaney and her parents have been living in the hospital for over three weeks now. This fundraiser is to help Delaney and her parents manage the unexpected expenses that they will incur while she is undergoing chemotherapy, physical therapy and rehabilitation as she goes between Kaiser Oakland Hospital and UCSF.
We apprecaite any support you can give to help us with our sweet little Delaney! No amount is too small or too big, and everything will be put to extrememly good use.

Delaney is a Livermore, CA resident just like her parents who grew up there, call Livermore their home, community, and workplace. She has a younger brother Merlin who just turned 1 that day she was admitted to the hospital...we call him Mini Merlin. Merlin the father is firefighter for LPFD, which has been offering so much support during this time for their family. Janice the mother will be taking a leave of absence from her work this next year or more to help with the ongoing care and treatment for Delaney. There is nothing like a mothers love for a little girl going though so much. Both Merlin and Janice continue to be by her side 24 hours a day as we fight this battle.
