BravEllie is our Valentine this year

Posted · Add Comment

Ellie is a loving, bright, kind, creative and energetic 5 year old girl who was

adopted at birth by her parents Avery and Melinda.

She loves princesses, her favorite colors are pink and purple,

and she enjoys trips to Disney World.


On August 24, 2015 Ellie was diagnosed with

hepatosplenic gamma delta T cell lymphoma, an extremely rare cancer.

She is the youngest patient known to be diagnosed with his type of lymphoma.

 Ellie was due to begin kindergarten on August 25, 2015 but because of the treatment required she will be unable to attend school until either the second half of first or the beginning of second grade. She has been robbed of a portion of her life, but we are all hopeful that these treatments will give her many more years full of life to life.

Ellie received a bone marrow transplant from her little sister Jayda this past December and is now in isolation at home until her new cells have had a chance to be accepted by her body which has left the Shaw family facing many physical, mental  and financial challenges.
