By June, her condition appeared to be improving; tests showed that the tumor had shrunk. Within weeks, though, it had grown again, and McKenna gradually lost her ability to move, talk and swallow. Monday through Friday.
McKenna Claire Wetzel came into the world Aug. 5, 2003, after her mother endured six months of bed rest. That rest proved to be the last calm for awhile; with both parents working and McKenna and her older sister, Jordan, engaged in sports and other endeavors, the Nike Coat Red
At first, the Wetzels thought she had the flu, but when she began throwing up violently and developed a wandering eye, she underwent a CT scan that showed a mass growing on her brainstem. Doctors soon diagnosed it as an incurable form of brain cancer called diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, better known as DIPG, and gave her no more than 18 months to live.
A bittersweet glass
With Jordan, Katie and other friends as her accomplices, McKenna got the enterprise bug early on. One of her favorite pastimes was to paint signs, set up a table on the corner and sell lemonade and sweets to passersby. Sometimes, she and her partners kept the proceeds, but other times, they forwarded them to Children's Hospital of Orange County, the Orange County Humane Society and other Tracksuit Nike Women
A year ago, McKenna died of a brain tumor at the age of 7. And this weekend, her friend is honoring the legacy of the I Don't Know and I Don't Care Girls with an act of decisiveness and empathy.
Then, in January of last year, McKenna began having health woes of her own. She promptly found herself on the receiving end of that charity.

Moreover, they won't be the only two stands. The foundation, which has donated all its proceeds so far to a research team at Stanford University, has called on people worldwide to set up stands on Sunday and divert the proceeds to a charity of their choice.

If the Eader Elementary School classmates got a question that they didn't have a passionate answer to, those were their typical replies. McKenna's mother, Kristine Wetzel, might ask what they wanted to do that afternoon or where they felt like going, and she could often predict the answer so much so that she anointed them both with a nickname.
For McKenna, that apathy resided largely on the surface. The Huntington Beach resident developed a love of philanthropy early in life and often donated proceeds to charity from the lemonade stands she set up on the corner near her house.
True to her nickname, McKenna didn't much care where the group Nike Windrunner Black And White gathered the camaraderie was enough for her. In between school and treatments, she lived what her parents call "a rock star life," vacationing to Hawaii and Las Vegas, sitting on the floor at a Lakers game and attending tapings of"American Idol"and "Dancing with the Stars."
"People seem to gravitate toward the foundation, and then they take it in a whole new direction," said Dave Wetzel, McKenna's father. "It shows you Nike Sportswear Windrunner Men's Full-zip Hoodie
While McKenna was out of school, a group of friends created the Tuesday Homework Club to keep her up to date with homework. Even after she returned to Eader, they continued to meet every Tuesday at a different member's house to study and socialize.
Katie, 9, joined nearly a dozen friends Tuesday afternoon to paint signs for a pair of lemonade stands to benefit the McKenna Claire Foundation, which the Wetzels set up in October to fund brain cancer research. The stands, one of which may go up on McKenna's favorite corner at Polynesian Lane and Bobbie Circle, will operate on what would have been her ninth birthday Sunday.
