Joyful Ornament Fund: Meet Ellie

As many of you know, each year Ivy donates a portion of the proceeds from our “Favorite Things” to the Joyful Ornament Fund, which offers assistance to women going through cancer treatments in the form of medical expenses and other daily life needs.This year’s recipient is the remarkable 6 year old Ellie. Ellie is battling cancer for the second time.

Her first diagnosis was in April 2014 – she had a tumor in the mediastinum (the cavity in the chest between the lungs that contains all the organs except the lungs). The cancer was a yolk sac tumor, which means the cancer cells were present in the lining of the sac when she was an embryo. The cancer had also metastasized to her legs. She underwent six cycles of chemotherapy, then had the tumor removed in October 2014 in Boston.

In April 2018, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. She again started on chemotherapy and had the tumor removed in August 2018 at the Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte. She underwent a stem cell transplant in October and will remain in the hospital until late December or early January.

Ellie is the oldest of three children. She has a little sister, Polly, who is three and a little brother, Henry, who is one. She enjoys horses, unicorns and art. She is University of Georgia Bulldog fan. Please join the Joyful Team as we love Ellie and her sweet family during this difficult journey.
