QUASARs participate in Claire House charity run in remembrance of Ava
Last weekend marked the 5-year anniversary of the day little Ava Scott grew her angel wings.
Ava was diagnosed as having a Ewing's Sarcoma, a cancerous tumour in her leg in July 2012. She battled her illness without complaining and with so much dignity. She never moaned about the treatment and accepted what was necessary. Sadly, on 21st September 2013, Ava lost her battle - she was only 8 years old.
To remember the precious little girl who always had a smile on her face and happiness in her eyes, the QUASARs, including AVA Fellow Milena Vujanovic and AVA coordinator and QUASAR Group leader Prof Carsten Welsch, joined the team ‘Ava Forever’ and jogged, walked and danced through clouds of powdered paint at the 5k Claire House Splash Dash event at Sefton Park, Liverpool. Claire House Children’s Hospice helps seriously and terminally ill children live life to the full by creating wonderful experiences and bringing back a sense of normality to family life and provided amazing support to Ava and her family during their ordeal.
‘Ava loved people and parties’, said Janine Scott, Ava’s mum, and despite the rainy weather team ‘AVA Forever’ has been in high spirits throughout that colourful day and had an amazing, fun-filled time, remembering beautiful Ava and keeping her lovely, precious memories alive.
And we are sure, that a little angel looked down on us that day, smiling and dancing along…
