Hero of the Month Girl

Avari has demonstrated bravery and a positive attitude through her numerous surgeries and hospitalizations. She is 17-years old and will be graduating high school in May. Avari was diagnosed with Crohns Disease a few years ago and has recently received a second colostomy bag due to complications from her illness, but has maintained an optimistic outlook throughout her recovery. Her positive self image – especially during difficult times – is quite admirable. During her stays at Riley, Avari does daily homework and enjoys crafts.
Avari is a pleasure to be around and is a role model for other teen girls with Crohns Disease.
