Birthday party for 5-year old with inoperable brain tumor

What started as a mission to get this 5-year old girl as many birthday cards as possible, turned into something much bigger. The community and her school came together to throw Lexys Lamp a birthday party. She was diagnosed last September with DIPG, an inoperable brain tumor that cannot be surgically removed. 

She was given 9 to 12 months to live and to celebrate her birthday, she wanted birthday cards sent to her.  Now, as she's approaching the 8-month mark, her family writes that she is achy and the tumor is pressing on her eye, but she is looking forward to her sixth birthday which is just around the corner.

Her birthday is August 27.  

If you would like to send Lexys a birthday card, please send to:

Lexys Lamp
1536 May St.
Dearborn, MI 48124.

If you would like to donate towards the family's medical bills, you can do so via their GoFundMe page
