Two year old Ava is a very special little girl. Despite having spent half of her life in lockdown shielding, she is still full of energy and smiling. Ava has down syndrome and has terminal cancer. Great Ormond Street hospital are treating her to extend her life as much as they can as her Leukemia is now not treatable.
Her friends have come together to make Ava’s time left as special as possible by making sure she has things to make her smile.
Family friend Joely, told the Havering Daily: “We are a group of friends who have all decided to get together to do as many special things as we can for Ava. Her older brother attends Hunters Hall Lodge school with our children in Dagenham.
“We are trying to raise funds for the family as things are tight for them right now and we know one of their dearest wishes is to be able to afford a professional photographer to go and take pictures of Ava.
“She is an amazing little girl who has fought most of her life. We know she loves animals and we know she loves Peppa Pig. We asked her mum Cherry what we could do to cheer her up and she told us about her love for cows and animals.”
Cherry told the Havering Daily: “I can’t believe how much people are doing for her. She is okay and having a five day treatment plan at the moment. She’s still full of energy.”
Friends are trying to make Ava’s wishes come true.
