Little Avery is doing well.

Her diagnosis last year with non-
rhabdomyosarcoma, deeply touched everyone who knows her story.

This rare form of cancer has the characteristics of three different types of cancer, all in one. By the time Avery was diagnosed in October, it had already spread to her lungs and was ranked Stage 4. After four rounds of intense chemotherapy, followed by surgery, her cancer had shrunk and there are now no traces of lesions in her lungs.

Avery is going back to the hospital in October for a follow-up scan. If all goes well, her port will be removed.

Avery is feeling great, eating well, growing and learning all kinds of new things. Her hair has come back, as well as her eyebrows and eyelashes. With her sweet smile and good nature she charms everyone who meets her.

Avery had a little accident during the summer. She ended up with a small fracture in her leg. Her bones have been weakened by chemo, so she had to wear a cast on her leg for a few weeks.

Now the cast is off, and Avery can go swimming and running around.

I bet she’ll be playing soccer with her brothers very soon!
