This is the sweet, sassy, and spunky Avila Gachalian.


On July 29, 2019 Avila was diagnosed with cancer, B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. After two years of chemotherapy, and with only five months left of treatment, we received the heart breaking news that Avila's cancer came back. As of July 2021, Avila has begun another two-year treatment plan. She is strong, smiling, and fighting. It is surely a major bump in the road, but we are all hopeful that she will beat cancer once and for all!

Our family is thankful to each of you for all your support, love, and prayers.
