A hero – is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles. – Christopher Reeve

Olivia Hansen you are my HERO! 

There is no denying that life has been incredibly unfair to you, and yet with every obstacle you and your family has been faced with for the last 6 years, you’ve fought with all your strength. Through your fight you have inspired me in ways that I don’t even know how to express. Your original diagnosis gave you a 25-30% rate of survival past 5 years, here you are at 6 years into your battle. 

You wanted nothing more than to live life to its fullest, to be an ordinary kid and believe in the magic of unicorns. And you my dear, are extraordinary and so are your parents. Your beautiful smile lights up any room that you are in. You were blunt about the major question of life that I have pondered for quite some time, “How can my husband, Bo, not like cheese?”

Today, I pray and ask others to do the same, because sadly, I am unsure of what else to do. I pray that you are relieved from this pain you are feeling. I pray for your parent’s Jeff and Margaret and your sister Elle. 

As always Olivia Hansen, my Hero, you are in my thoughts and prayers today!


In addition to prayers, if you wish to support Olivia, her personally designed Team Olivia Unicorn shirts are available here, all proceeds go directly towards her medical fund.
