Inspiring eight-year-old Pecatonica girl dies from cancer
Eight-year-old Pecatonica girl Ava Beck has passed away from her battle with cancer.
Beck was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer, this past summer. When her treatment wasn't working Ava went back home to be with her family in Pecatonica.
Her mother posted on Ava's Tribe's Facebook page saying Ava passed away peacefully Wednesday afternoon at her home, surrounded by her loved ones.
In honor of Beck, a local makeup artist was selling lip gloss online and plans to give back all profits to help the family.
