In support of unpaid family caregivers, AARP Delaware is sponsoring a room at the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware. The house provides shelter for families of children who are seriously or chronically ill or injured and are receiving treatment at area hospitals.
When Stormy, age 8, was in kindergarten, her teachers started sending her home from school frequently for vomiting and losing her balance. After a couple doctor visits, the family was told to wait and see what happens. When her situation didn’t improve, her great-grandparents took the lead and arranged for a doctor visit at a local Children’s Hospital. Soon afterwards, Stormy was diagnosed with an amelablastoma, or brain tumor. She’d had it for 6 months.
