Addyson Cordes returns to Wanamingo from cancer treatment


WANAMINGO, Minn. (KTTC)- The city of Wanamingo is celebrating Thursday now that one of their youngest residents is home after being treated for Cancer in Texas. Two-year-old Addyson Cordes is, once again, among friends and family.

Addyson was born in August of 2011 and after a fall down a couple of stairs after her first birthday, doctors discovered a mass on her brain. From there, young Addy has had a life full of hospitals and medicine

Addyson's latest treatment has taken place in Houston, Texas, away from the comfort of their family and friends in Wanamingo. On April 23rd, Addy went through her last of her already 25 radiation treatments and was able to return home.

Brought in with the assistance of police and fire trucks, a block full of "Team Addy" shirts and pink balloons welcomed the family home. Addy is a fighter, taking on any road blocks that seem to get in the way.

"The word to describe Ms. Addyson is sassy," says Michelle Zidlicky, Addyson's mom. "She does not have a care in the world. She has a smile, she brightens everyone's day. Everyone says that they are attracted to her, like she has a glow around her. Everyone has to say hello to her. So, in Texas we made tons of friends and, of course, we have tons of friends, too."

Addy will take a few weeks off from treatment to see the status of the tumor, and from there they will determine whether or not she needs to go back for more treatment.

It was easy to see that Thursday night was a moment many in Wanamingo were waiting for, and the town rejoiced as one of their favorite little girls came home.
