Ava

Ava is a Harry Potter-loving, ukulele-playing 14-year-old girl. Thanks to the world-class care she received at the Stollery Children’s Hospital, her future remains bright.

After having bad leg pain, Ava went to the doctor expecting to be sent for physiotherapy. An X-ray, MRI and two biopsies later, doctors confirmed Ava had cancer in her right leg and lungs. Her treatment involved chemotherapy, surgery on her leg and three separate lung surgeries. During treatment, Ava discovered a passion for music. Her mom is grateful to have a world-class children’s hospital right in their backyard.
