Meet Honored Child Heaven
Heaven is a 7-year-old ramen-eating, puppy-loving, crafting, gymnast extraordinaire.
At the present moment, she does not have a puppy, but she is hopeful that will change soon. She does have a big sister, a loving mom, and a best friend named Caitlin who she looks up to because she is nice and supports her. Which is exactly what Heaven would do to make the whole world smile – “Be nice and support them.” Her favorite Candlelighters memories involve Family Camp: pool time and snow cones at a place that she says is “really nice for cancer kids.” Heaven was diagnosed with ALL Acute Lymphoblastic leukemia, a type of blood and bone marrow cancer that affects the lymphoid cells, at the age of 2, and then had a relapse in 2019.
