"#BellaStrong" is the perfect Cinderella blue and a total must have! "#BellaStrong" was picked and named by Bella Nava. Bella's story is below:
Bella, age 7, was diagnosed at the age of 16 months with a brain tumor in March 2014. Under Dr. Crawford’s care, Bella had to immediately have 2 brain surgeries only 3 weeks apart. When Bella’s mom, Angelica realized that the full right side of her body was very weak, it was determined that Bella needed to start chemotherapy. She began a regimen of 16 months of chemotherapy and finalized her last treatment in June 2015. She was then stable and in remission for one full year – her family finally started to breathe easy.
After a year of being in remission, Bella’s mom started noticing the right side of her body getting very weak again – she would fall and favor her left side. This time, the weakness even started to affect her vision and her balance. Angelica took Bella back to Rady Children’s and they received the heartbreaking news that the tumor had returned. Bella immediately had to start chemotherapy again in August 2016. She continued chemotherapy treatments till Sep 2018.
Just a few months later in Jan 2019 Bella relapsed for the third time. After MRI results confirming that the tumor had returned Bella’s family had just one option and that was a third major 10-hour brain surgery. After doctors confirming 99% resection Bella’s family finally took a gasp. Two months after Bella started Radiation therapy and continues to be monitored by Rady’s Children’s Hospital with bi-monthly MRIs.
Bella has a 12-year-old sister named Lisset and 4-year-old little brother named Sebastian. She is very shy but as she becomes more comfortable, she turns into a “comedian”. She loves to have dance parties and to wear makeup and just being a girly girl.
