In honor and celebration of Maylea Estridge
The Arkansas Chapter of The Cure Starts Now was formed in honor of Maylea Estridge. Maylea was diagnosed with DIPG at the age of 6. She fought bravely for 15 months, never letting it steal her wonderful smile or amazing personality. She was a smart, happy, funny, strong, brave & beautiful little girl who could light up any room simply by walking through the door. She is so very deeply loved and missed and will be forever in our hearts.
The Cure Starts Now (501c3 Federal Non-Profit) is one of the only cancer foundations dedicated to a “homerun” cure for all cancers, starting first with one of the most deadly and difficult cancers: pediatric brain cancer. Many experts believe that the lessons we learn from fighting pediatric cancer may in fact provide us the critical first step in winning the battle against all forms of cancer, both pediatric and adult.
