Meet adorable Ava! She just celebrated her 2nd birthday and CKMC was there to help. Since she was diagnosed at age 1 with anaplastic astrocytoma, we wanted to make this day as special as possible for sweet baby Ava and her whole family! This little cutie had the fanciest party around – lace, ruffles, flowers and pink and green were the theme.

We wanted to make sure she had the best food, decorations, cake, and entertainment, a 2 year old could possibly have. Over 70 guests came out to give precious Ava gifts and wish her well as she turned 2. The kids were entertained by Petey the Clown and he also made festive balloon animals and hats. Ava’s sisters, Lyla and Mila thought he was the best. They had a BLAST!

One of our volunteer photographers, Anthony, was there to capture all of these special moments for Ava’s family. CKMC wanted to spoil Ava with her first American Girl Doll, complete with birthday outfit, hat and cupcake purse. We also bought her some new cozy pj’s and a bunch of clothes. We wouldn’t want our little fancy girl to be cold with the recent weather change!

Food was catered in by Fodrak’s in Libertyville before the guests dug in to Ava’s fabulous cake. CKMC also helped the family out with some bills, which is perfect timing before the upcoming holidays. Thank you to everyone who helped to make this sweet baby girl’s 2nd birthday special – especially Anthony and Pete! Happy 2nd birthday Ava!
