Read about Amelia's story below:

This fall, our family is coming upon the 5 year anniversary of Amelia’s passing. At age 4, it was determined that she had the autoimmune disease CVID (Common Variable Immune Deficiency), leaving her highly susceptible to foreign bacteria and viruses.  Before and after her diagnosis, Amelia was frequently in and out of hospitals, going through extensive procedures some of which required to be connected to specialized machines for days at a time. Finally it was decided that a bone marrow transplant would “heal/cure” her condition. A month shy of her 17th birthday, she began an extended hospital stay in which she had to undergo a lengthy surgery to receive a central line in order to be administered chemo therapy treatments and many other necessary requirements. Amelia had to shave her beautiful head of hair, all this in preparation for her transplant day, her “re-birth” day. Devastatingly, she passed away several days after her transplant due to renal failure that led to organ failure. 
Amelia was full of hopes and dreams, had many passions and interests (a few of her favorites were baking and photography), and excited to begin her senior year of high school. She was looking forward to becoming a nurse so that one day she could help make children’s lives a little brighter like so many nurses had done for her.
Throughout her life, Amelia was able to be a camper at Paul Newman’s, "Hole in the Wall Gang Camp" in Ashford, CT. This camp celebrates the essence of childhood. It is a place where chronically ill children can be carefree, have fun, and not have to worry about doctor visits or being different/sick. The camp and it's dedicated staff serve over 20,000 children each year in the Northeastern United States through their camp and outreach programs. Each year, Amelia would count the days until it was her camp week and would return home with many new friends, happy and rejuvenated, and complete knowing that for just one week she wasn’t defined as a “sick kid”, but that she was defined as just a kid.
