Team Ava

Ava Claire was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2011.  After a successful surgery to remove the tumor, she unfortunately contracted meningitis and suffered a series of 13 strokes that left her in a coma for 10 days.  When she woke up, she was unable to move a single muscle.  She had to re-learn how to walk, talk and eat.  5+ years later, she is still working on regaining many skills but she has an incredibly strong spirit and slowly improves every day.  Her positive attitude and infectious smile affect everyone she meets! 

Our family is committed to raising funds to fight this awful disease that robbed our girl of so many things that people often take for granted.  Since 2012, Team Ava has been raising money to make a difference in the fight against brain tumors. We would love to have you join in the fight by walking with us on May 7, 2017, or donating to the cause!
