Alyvia is 4 years old. She loves dolls, Dora, and the trampoline. She had a brain tumor in her brain stem and had surgery on Sept 24, 2007 to resect the tumor. She spent almost 3 months at Primary Children's recovering from many complications (some of them being ARDS-lung disease, spinal meningitis and cerebellar mutism.) With cerebellar mutism Livie has had to re-learn quite a few things like talking and walking. She has since come a long ways! She really is our little miracle and has taught us the true meaning of love.
