Hi, I’m Ava…

I’m 8 years old. I live in Miami, Florida and I have three siblings – Thomas (age 11) and twins, Jackson and Ella (age 9). My family had 4 children born in just 3.5 years and we have 2 left handed kids and 2 right handed kids (my twin brother and sister are completely opposite)! I like ballet, chess, baseball and Minecraft. I’d like to be a doctor when I get older.

At age 2, I was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma.

As a Candlelighters NYC kid, my favorite experience is spending time with Barbara. My parents would say their favorite part is the emotional support Candlelighters NYC can provide.

…And my family uses these words to describe Candlelighters NYC:  Home away from home
