Bella was a healthy and happy four-year-old when in July 2007 she became paralyzed overnight. The cause of the paralysis was a large tumor in her spine with seven other tumors throughout her body. She was diagnosed with Stage 4 Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive childhood cancer. With intense treatments and prayers from all around the world, she miraculously regained the ability to walk, run and jump and went into remission when it was never thought possible. Bella courageously fought cancer six times until her death on May 28, 2013. Her big brown eyes, infectious smile, determination and innocence touched thousands across the globe. Bella had unwavering faith, a loving heart and a great sense of compassion for others.
Her life and legacy, to care and serve others, lives on with the work of the Live Like Bella™ foundation for childhood cancer.
On Saturday, September 13, Miami will dress up and come together in memory of Bella at Bella's Ball.
Taudrey will have a pop-up at Bella's Ball to showcase and sell the Live Like Bella collection. In addition, 20% of proceeds from every Taudrey piece sold that night will go towards the foundation.
