Ava Rhoades

First post: Nov 22, 2019
Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
One of our local families has their 9 year old girl, Ava, in critical condition at UCSF Pediatric Cardiac critical care unit in SF. She was rushed in a couple days ago after being run down and had no energy.  She was diagnosed with Myocarditis, which is a virus of the heart and it is very serious.  She’s on a special unit to allow her heart and body to rest.  It is expected she will be there for several weeks.  Ava is such a wonderful girl, full of life, smiles and determination. She is a joy to all around her.

As Ava’s family handles this tough time, we've set up a GoFundMe account to allow our great network of parents and people with good hearts to help where they can.  Ava’s Mother, Mary, is a single parent after Ava’s father passed away when she was young. At this time, any financial support you can provide would be extremely beneficial to help with bills while Mary has to take time away from work to deal with everything.

Let’s pull together and provide support to this amazing little girl and her family. We have a GoFundMe link below and have a meal sign up we will also provide. Thank you for your support, prayers, notes and love.  xo Friends of Mary https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-for-9-year-old-ava-rhodes-and-family?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet
