20 and Living with a Brain Tumor

Update posted by Macey Steckelberg On Aug 25, 2013

Macey passed away May 13th, 2013.  She was home, surrounded by her loving family and we were all with her to the end.  Macey has been put in a temporary tomb and will be laid to rest in October of 2013, date TBA.  We will let friends and family know when we get a final date.  Our hometown cemetery just opened and this is what caused the delay in Macey's final resting place.  

We will miss our daughter so much and as our family tries to move on, stricken with grief, may the light of Macey's beautiful spirit help to carry us through.  Thanks to all of you who donated and for your kind words of support and encouragement.  


All our love

Ken, Angela, Erica, Alyssa, Maranda, and Kylah.

Just and update.  Macey was admitted today 10/25/2012 to the Huntsman Cancer institute for some evaluation and what they are calling a tune up.  Her symptoms from the radiation worsened and she has had a hard time with many things include standing, walking, seeing double, not being able to hold her head up straight, talking and swallowing.  This area where the tumor is controls so many of those functions and it has really messed her up.  She was also dehydrated so they wanted to watch her for a couple of days, and keep her on some IV drugs and fluids to hopefully help with the Adema and her strength.  We'll keep you posted.  Please keep Macey in your prayers and we are so very thankful to those of you that have donated.  Please, if you read this, don't be shy, not matter the amount, Macey needs everyone's help.  Thank you all!

Lori Wilson (Macey's Aunt) helped with my funding to get to Africa with a medical team. Giving back to her family is an example of when you help others without expecting anything in return, should you find yourself or those around you in need, it will come back to you.

Macey is my hero too! She's also my niece and I love her to pieces. If you ever had the opportunity to spend time with my brother Kenny his wife and my sis-in-law Angie and their five amazing daughters Erica, Alyssa, Macey, Maranda, and Kylah you would be over-whelmed with the love and support that this family enjoys every day. They are truly a blessing and deserve a stress free, happy, healthy, and joyful life. Please help support them. Love to all.
