This Week’s Feature: The Ava Caggino Fight Against Cancer

This week’s special star is 4-year-old Ava Caggino, a beautiful little lady with a heart for entertaining others with her musical talents.  Ms. Camille Marfisi, the sister of Ava’s great-aunt, was kind enough to share Ava’s story with us and we would like to pass it on to you.

In June, Ava was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor, Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdoid Tumor (ATRT), and has already had numerous medical treatments, including a craniotomy which removed 70% of the tumor.  As a result, she lost her eyesight.  But, through it all, she is still amazing her doctors and caregivers with her unfailing strength and courage.

Her family needs your thoughts and prayers during the long recovery process ahead, including another surgery in the very near future.  Any cards and donations for brave little Ava can be sent to 44 Shipping Place, P.O. Box 21821, Dundalk, MD, 21222.  You can also learn more about Ava and her progress by going to and liking her Facebook page.

Please help us spread the word about Ava Caggino and her fight against Cancer!

**If you know a child that would like to be featured on our site, please let us know!**

    Thank you so much for profiling beautiful Ava. She is such a courageous little girl, with all that she’s been through she’s still able to sing & dance. Her strength is mind boggling and I believe it is through her that her family gets their strength and with the love & prayers of her family & friends she will beat this cruel disease.
