A two-year-old girl with Down syndrome had to make six separate trips to a hospital after she was diagnosed with leukemia.
After her nine-month battle against the disease, Avery Schreiber finally rang the bell at Golisano Children’s Hospital, NBC 2 reported.
Even though it was a difficult experience for her family, they said that the condition gave them a different perspective on life.
Avery’s father, Zachary Schreiber said: “It puts everything in perspective. That’s what she has done for me over the last nine months. All that matters is family and friends and getting to wake up every morning and enjoy that day.”
Little Avery gives inspiration not only to her family but also to other people around her, including her primary caretaker Dr. Edam Salman.
“Kids like Avery, give us that zest to continue to fight because there is hope. We want to give every child that chance,” Salman shared.
Avery’s mother, Heather Porter, said that the support from their loved ones helped them get through their journey.
“Very difficult for us to go through that but we wouldn’t been able to get through it without the help and support of our family,” she said.
“It was just indescribable to be able to go down the hall and see everybody cheering for her and how happy everybody was that she had completed it,” she expressed.
The family is now looking forward to Avery’s third birthday next February.
One Facebook user commented: “Such a cutie. Prayers coming your way.”
Another wrote: “God bless you and your family.”
