By Erin Hawley
LITTLE ROCK (KATV) — A benefit was held Sunday for a Little Rock girl battling an inoperable brain tumor.Six-year-old Maylea Estridge has a brain tumor growing on her brain stem. The Gray Dragons Motorcycle Club organized the Miracle for Maylea benefit to give her family some financial help.Organizer Randall Dixon said although fewer than 10 percent of those diagnosed will survive more than two years, they are praying Maylea will be one of them."There's still hope for her so they're trying chemo and radiation to see if they can get rid of it," Dixon said. "Her last treatment is next Tuesday, and then another two weeks or so down the road they'll have a diagnosis to see if it's gone away."Sunday's benefit included a poker run, face painting and a silent auction.
