In February of 2012, my 5 ½ year old daughter Madeline passed away. She was diagnosed with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma), a rare and inoperable brainstem tumor. She passed away only five days after her diagnosis. I am often annoyed and confused when people tell me that Madeline died for a reason.
