These traits have become very important as she endures the toughest fight of her life.
At the end of 2014, Avery was diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma, a cancerous tumor that occurs in the brain. While the tumor was aggressive, it did not deter Avery from fighting. She beat the initial tumor with surgery, chemo, radiation and a lot of persistence.
But, the cancer came back and now Avery is fighting again. Avery’s determined spirit is stronger than ever. So, while the tumor has affected her balance, it has not stopped Avery in participating in the BrainPower 5K on September 13th.
