Ella Gardner, 5 and her Father Eric pose for a photo with Holly Larue Frizzelle, 2 and her mother Leilani at Ella's fifth birthday party. Ella chose to dedicate her fifth birthday party to Larue and accept donations in lieu of presents. On December 27, 2012 two year old Holly Larue Frizzelle was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. What began as a stomach ache and visit to her regular pediatrician led to a hospital admission, transport to the University of North Carolina Children's Hospital, and more than two years of treatment.
