PAULDING — Lilly Dearing, age 4, of Paulding, was diagnosed with an Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (inoperable brain tumor) in January. Lilly, the daughter of Mandy Briner and Todd Dearing, is a beautiful little girl who is fighting to survive this devastating disease.
Fundraisers were held for Lilly to travel to the famed Burzynski Clinic in Houston, Texas. The family decided to try a different type of treatment with a doctor who has had great success with this type of tumor.
