9-month-old Ava was dying from a rare genetic conditioned, Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Baseball runs in her family’s blood. The longtime Dodger fans wanted to take the baby to a World Series Los Angeles Dodger game before she died so that she could receive a certificate from the Jr. Dodger Kid’s Club for the first and last game she would ever attend.
Generations of Ava’s family had worked for and enjoyed the storied major league team, so SoCal Hospice Foundation put together a special day for the entire family. The family was able to create beautiful memories with baby Ava that they will cherish for many years to come.
