Our new Ambassador for 2021 is Danica the Brave. At 21 months Danica Jane was diagnosed with an Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor (ATRT), an aggressive brain tumor. In her doctors’ attempts to stop the fast growing tumor, Danica underwent six rounds of chemotherapy, three stem cell transplants, 25 surgeries, laser ablation, and proton beam radiation therapy. She fought courageously for three years. Through the medevacs and emergency helicopter flights to Seattle Children’s from her home in Alaska, Danica always maintained a positive attitude and joyful presence. Sadly, ATRT claims the lion’s share of lives it touches–survival rates are below 50%. Danica died March 11, 2021. Her unwavering love and sweet smile made the world a better place. We are honored to have created these one-of-a-kind votives and ornaments in her favorite shades of pink in her memory.

Childhood cancers take many forms, from blood disorders to various types of tumors and rare genetic diseases. Regardless of the condition, supporting cutting-edge research and promising treatments help to prepare a future where families won’t face a diagnosis of childhood cancer.
Friends for Life Guild was formed in 2006 and is constantly fueled every year by courageous children who have undergone or are going through cancer treatment. To this day, our ornament and votive proceeds and your generation donations benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital Childhood Cancer Research program. Together, we hope to find a cure and make a difference in the lives of young people battling cancer.
