Elle was diagnosed with a brain tumor when she was 5 years old (2007). Elle faced many challenges during her young life. She suffered a stroke, lost the use of her right hand and leg, had to re- learn how to walk and talk, survived several surgeries including brain surgery, underwent several courses of chemotherapy (2009-2010), underwent proton beam radiation therapy (2010). Elle’s treatment was received at Georgetown. Elle met these challenges with a positive attitude and the determination of a champion. She had a great laugh and a warm hug. On October 12, 2013 Elle went to Heaven. Since that day our family and friends have noticed an increase in pink sunsets and sunrises.
