“Pooh Bear”

Ella – joined our program in September 2008. She was also diagnosed with a DIPG in December 2007 at the age of six and fought a brave battle for eleven months. At the age of seven, she became a published poet and her wish was to grow up to be a teacher. Although never given the opportunity to grow up, she was the best teacher any of us could have asked for. She taught us all so much about life, love and finding joy in the midst of the darkest of times. Ella earned her wings on November 21, 2008 and is greatly missed by her parents, her little brother and all of us who knew her.
