Despite her rare diagnosis with an atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT) and enduring multiple rounds of chemotherapy, radiation and cell transplants, 6-year-old Avalanna lived life with an exuberance that inspired everyone around her. Broadcast as part of the September 7, 2012 Stand Up To Cancer telecast, Avalanna's story is a reminder of the critical need for additional research for children facing cancer everywhere. Avalanna passed on September 26, 2012. All of us at Stand Up To Cancer stand together, heartbroken, with the family of Avalanna Routh. For six years, she shared her courage, sparkling wit, bravery and strength with the world. Despite our tears, we will forever carry with us a gratitude for having encountered a life and spirit as precious as hers.
