MORGAN COUNTY, AL (WAFF)- Erica Campbell said her youngest child, Ava "Bug" Campbell, was a miracle from the start because she and her husband were told they couldn't have more children. But Ava's big sister prayed hard, and with the blessing came a challenge.
"She was diagnosed at 21-months-old with a very high risk, rare type of acute Lymphoblastic leukemia. Her's has a gene mutation with it, so it just makes it more complicated to treat and easier to relapse," said Erica. That meant daily chemo at home and trips to Children's Hospital in Birmingham for more treatment.
Erica said it's a journey of faith. "It's really shown us not only to be an advocate for our daughter, but to be an advocate for our friends who have buried their children," she added.
