in honor of Avery


Dave and Nicole’s daughter Avery was born on January 7, 2012, with Trisomy 18. She passed away ten months later, on November 13. “Avery had the most beautiful smile, even at such a young age,” her mother says. She was very tenacious and we loved every ounce of the fighting spirit she possessed.”

Avery was so charming and vibrant that she was nearly ten months old before her family learned the full truth of her condition. “When we started doing diagnostic testing on her, the doctors were amazed at how good she looked and at the smiles she gave. She never let her diagnosis define her, or stop her from being one amazing little girl. She always gave us reasons to laugh and smile, and even if those memories now bring some tears as well, we are still so happy we got to spend ten wonderful months with Avery! What a beautiful light in this world.”

Avery’s family would like to than the Trisomy 18 Organization for its support.
