Never Ever Give Up!

While getting ready to leave the SCCA (Seattle Cancer Care Alliance), we bumped into a Korean couple coming off the elevator. The man looked so distressed leading his limping, cancer ravaged wife to her appointment. When he saw Ava's bald head, he did a double take and then began to cry. I'm pretty certain he felt so bad that this incredibly devastating disease did not spare even the innocent and young.

My voice broke while telling Mike about my encounter. Ava overheard my story and this was her response.
Ava: Don't worry, Mom. I'll NEVER EVER give up. 

I'm thankful to this amazing girl. Even when we, as adults, lose faith she stands strong in the midst of adversity. Thank you for believing with us for her healing and for never ever giving up.
