The so called "Help desk"

Don't bother with the so called "help desk"! If you've been at DA for very long you'll find they won't interrupt their surfing to deal with your tiny problems!

Especially if you get someone named Charles! All you'll get from him is attitude!


Please help the parents show the world to this terminal little girl! Send a postcard if you can!

Ellie Walton, 3, has been fighting a rare brain tumor since she was four months old. Unable to fly, she’s recently begun exploring the world through postcards sent from supporters after her mother put the word out six weeks ago.

“The world has so much to offer you,” reads one sent from Turkey, according to KOMO News. “You should be able to travel and see different countries.”

"Not only is it a postcard that shows her a different place, but it also shows her that people believe in her," Ellie’s mother, Sarah Walton, told KOMO News, "and they believe in how strong she is and they know she can beat this."

Ellie has stage IV glioblastoma, which doctors say is terminal. She’s undergone 17 surgeries, including 14 brain surgeries and five tumor removals. The girl, who lives in Spanaway, Wash., has also suffered meningitis and septic shock, and must have chemotherapy every other week, KOMO News reported.




After Ellie’s great-grandparents started sending notes from their travels and Sarah saw how much joy Ellie found in learning about far away locations, she put the word out. As of March 11, they’ve received roughly 500 postcards, some including donations to help cover medical bills.

In the most recent scans, Ellie’s tumor appears to be shrinking, which doctors didn’t expect, but her parents— who call her a fighter— weren’t surprised.

"This is hundreds of people that are thinking of her and praying for her and it's awesome," Sarah told KOMO News. "That's where I find my strength from."





Ellie’s parents have set up this mailing address for postcards:

Ellie Walton

PO Box 5094

Spanaway, WA 98387


P.S. No one should have to go thru all that suffering especially a little gal!
