Ellie Stanley has had 5 rounds of chemotherapy already in her short 11 months of life.  This has been life for the Stanley family since Ellie was born Dec 31, 2021, shortly after they found out she had a rare form of cancer called neuroblastoma.  Their “happy go lucky girl” began screaming, crying and not acting like herself about 5 ½ months ago. At first, they believed it had something to do with bowel movements and constipation, but an MRI over two months later revealed the unfortunate diagnosis.  The doctors have praised the parents for catching the cancer so early, but Tom and Bobbie knew something was wrong when Ellie was struggling to use her left leg.  The American Legion Riders held an event Friday to help raise money for a veterans family.  A Gofundme page called “Cancer Treatments for Ellie Sue” has been established at https://www.gofundme.com/f/ellie-sue-cancer-treatment, and Bobbie Slaney also has a donation account at MEMBERS1ST Credit Union.
