Avery Leck is a vibrant 9 year old who is a third grader at Irvington Community Elementary school and loves art and her two dogs. On April 8th 2019, Avery was diagnosed with ovarian germ cell cancer. This cancer begins in the egg cells of the ovary and grows rapidly. On April 9th, she underwent a three hour surgery to remove the very fast growing cancerous tumor. Surgery was successful in removing the cancerous tumor but this little girl still has a long recovery path ahead of her. She has had blood transfusions since the surgery and may need more treatment depending on the results of the biopsy.
Carl and Jessica are successful small business owners who live and work on the eastside of Indianapolis. Carl, of CBL Imagery, is an amazing artist whose murals can be found all over Indianapolis. Those who attend the Irvington Halloween Festival look forward to seeing Carl's integrate costume each year. Jessica, of Trivergance Training, is a personal trainer who helps everyone that walks in her door to find their path to personal wellness regardless of where they are starting. Both, Jessica and Carl, are active community members who volunteer to make the community they live in a better place.
Now they need our help. Despite how successful their small businesses are and despite all that they give of themselves, traditional health insurance has not been attainable for them. They have applied for financial assistance through the hospital, however this will likely not cover the great financial burden of her care. The surgery, care, and hospital stay that Avery needs will put this family into deep debt. We are calling on their community and friends to help in supporting them so that they can focus on what is important, Avery's health.
