At the age of five Lily LaRue Anderson was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, commonly referred to as DIPG, on May 3, 2014. She battled with her “Boo-Boo” for 11 months, during which time she touched the lives of thousands from all over the world who came together to support Lily and the Anderson family. Despite enduring a daily pill regimen, weekly blood draws, and everything else that came with it, Lily never stopped enjoying her love of comedy, animals, music, and life itself. Through it all Lily continued to bring smiles to the faces of everyone she met. Lily lost her battle with DIPG on April 6, 2015.

We continue the fight in her name by supporting the Lily LaRue Foundation. Fundraising information and events hosted by our generous community can be found here, on Hope for Lily LaRue and Love For Lily. 

Thanks for spreading Lily’s story, sharing her light and for your boundless love! #beatDIPG #TeamLilyLaRue
