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.
Right now, I have six applications on my desk from animal rescue organizations in desperate need of help. Each one of them is unique -- yet, the urgency is the same. Their facilities are on the verge of collapse or closure. And, without the buildings -- what happens to the animals they rescue and save?
