SHOUT OUT: Tickets are going fast for a beefsteak dinner next month featuring current and former New York Giants to benefit the family of little Lily LaRue Anderson, who has an inoperable brain tumor.

You can even wear your Lily Hoodie — they just came in.

With no prior signs, the spry, bubbly Wayne girl was diagnosed five months ago with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG). The tumor sits in the middle of the brain stem — which holds our “wiring” for motor control and sensation — and can’t be removed.

It’s a particularly cruel disease:  The median overall survival term is 9 months.

(What it does to children can be researched elsewhere.)

“Lily is so smart, funny, and loves life,” her parents say on a GoFundMe page for Lily .

“She is an animal lover…chihuahuas, unicorns, owls, monkeys, and even worms,” it says. “She loves taking photos, making videos, dancing, and doing silly impressions.

“Lily is always ready to show you a new trick, tell you a joke, and sing you a song. You are guaranteed a good laugh and big smile.

“She loves to entertain all ages and she is bright star to her entire family and friends. She is loved by so many, especially her aunts, uncles, many cousins, and grandparents.”

If you can find a place in your heart for an angel who likely won’t see Christmas, it would be appreciated. Her parents — along with Lily’s three older siblings — could use the help.
