Ava Sophia Leukemia Warrior

Some time ago, I received an email inquiry for Matilda Jane Clothing.  The request was from a gal in Maryland, where we don't have a Trunk Keeper.  During our chit-chats over the phone and email, I learned that her little angel, Ava, was just diagnosed with some of the most painful words a mom could hear, 'your daughter has leukemia'.  How heart wrenching that must have been.  Well, needless to say, Melissa and I stay in contact quite often and I always keep up on Ava's progress.  The mountains of emotion that goes into the lives of these two beautiful women amaze me everyday.  I can't write the touching words Melissa does, but needless to say,  the title says it all, Ava is a little warrior.  She fights the fight she has been given and her mom, Melissa, is her Chief.  I can't tell you how inspiring Melissa's words are, but they bring tears to my eyes EVERY time I read them.  She is an amazing mom.  A local Maryland paper, The Aegis has a recent story on Ava and her fight 
against Leukemia HERE.
Oh, and I forgot to mention, Ava LOVES to dance...
she is quite the dancing queen.
