As we enter 2018 we remember our beautiful namesake, Alyssa Grace Divers. A fierce firework with a heart of pure gold who was stolen from this world five years ago today. Alyssa inspires us every single day to help other children in medical crisis. To provide a space of love and support. To bring families together. To ease the burden on families fighting the toughest battles and children going through things no child should ever have experience. To everyone who has walked with us on this journey....thank you. Thank you for helping us honor and remember Alyssa. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of children in need. Thank you for opening your hearts to The Alyssa House. In true Alyssa fashion, nothing is more important than family. #thealyssahouse #nonprofit #cancersucks #children #uvachildrens #uvahealthsystem @uva_childlife
