In November 2011 Maybelle, now 11, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, a life threatening blood cancer. While her treatment has been life saving, it has ravaged her body. The highlight of her sometimes bleak days is to watch The Ellen Show. It has been a source of inspiration and much needed laughs.

Maybelle's wish is to go to The Ellen Show, and maybe even meet Ellen and thank her for being awesome. Problem is, we live in Australia and Maybelle is the oldest of 4 kids. So we are going to work and work and work some more to make Maybelle's wish come true.
