ELLA'S STORY

Ella was 2.5 when she started complaining about her head hurting. After being monitored by her doctor we went to the Alberta Children’s Hospital – just for peace of mind. It was that day; July 5 2017, that after a CT scan, the neurosurgeon came into her room and said that she was not leaving the hospital. The next day she had an MRI that showed a massive tumor located in her brainstem. She had surgery the next day that lasted all day. Ella’s recovery was not the typical recovery. If all went well, she would have been out of the hospital in about 5 days – she was in there for one month. Everything that could go wrong, went wrong. She caught infection after infection, and had a total of 3 craniotomy’s, a VP shut inserted and 3 ICU stays.

Ella’s tumor is considered incurable. It originates in the brainstem, and the surgeons do not feel comfortable getting too close. She came out of the hospital with many deficits that we will never know if it is because of the tumor, or the surgery. She is a fighter though, and she fights everyday to get back to her old self. Her tumor has since grown a massive amount, and she has now started 70 weeks of chemotherapy treatment, with the assumption of needing another brain surgery afterwards to try and get more tumor out, followed by a harsher round of chemo. Even after all this we still have HOPE that something once day will change, and we will be able to say that Ella is cured.

100% of the proceeds are going directly to Ella and her family!  Every piece of jewelry is handmade and will come with a amethyst stone which is Ella's favorite color.  You will also have a chance to win from a draw of over $600 worth of handmade goodies that have been donated by all of our amazing vendors!  Great chances to win, great handmade jewelry and ALL for a great cause!
