Burkburnett McDonald's raises money for girl with brain tumor

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

A three-year-old girl from Burkburnett was diagnosed with a brain tumor when she was just 16 months old.

The Burkburnett McDonald's is raising money to help the family with medical expenses.

Liliana Gonzalez had a tennis ball size brain tumor that was removed and she was on chemotherapy for over a year. 

Between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Wednesday, McDonald's donated a percentage of their sales to Liliana Gonzalez's family.

Liliana has gone through 32 treatments of radiation and went into remission the last march. She now lives daily with the side effects from all the chemo and radiation.

Kathy Holland, the McDonald's area supervisor said they heard about Liliana through the general manager of a Wichita Falls McDonald's.

"Well we're McDonald's and we always want to be involved with the community and do anything that we can to help the community," Holland said. "This was something that we felt like could make a difference."

Liliana and her family were there. Ronald McDonald also made a special appearance.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital said 200 new cases of the brain or spinal cord tumors are found in children and adults every year in the U.S.
