Ava's Blog has updates on whats new in her world, To view her entire blog or post something
This is Ava. She looks like a normal 9 month old girl. However, Ava was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis before she was born. She underwent major surgery at 3 days old for an intestinal blockage and spent 16 days in the Neonatal ICU at Minneapolis Amplatz Children's Hospital.
The good news is that Ava is one of the happiest babies that you will ever meet. Ask anyone that knows her, she is smiling and laughing almost all of the time. Five minutes with Ava is guaranteed to brighten your day.
THANKS for checking out the web site and the various ways you can help. We hope you consider sponsoring us on the Great Strides Walk. Your help will ensure that Ava keeps smiling by supporting her and the efforts of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
