Avalanna Routh’s Lifelong Battle With Cancer Can’t Take Smile Off 5-Year-Old’s Face


"That, my friends, is why we're doing that."

Those words, spoken by WEEI's John Dennis, perfectly put into words the wonders that can come from the amazing work of the Jimmy Fund and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. For living proof, look no further than Avalanna Routh.

The 5-year-old is a beaming ray of sunshine who was diagnosed with a brain tumor when she was just 9 months old. She's a fighter, though, and now she talks about her marriage with Justin Bieber and paints Gerry Callahan's fingernails.
