INDIANAPOLIS — With their daughter having been given only a few weeks left to live, Ava Parker's family wanted to make sure she gets to do what she wants during this precious time.
Two-year-old Ava, who has a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer, wanted to ride a bus and go to school.
Arrangements were made for the youngster and her family to ride a Metropolitan School District of Decatur Township bus to Liberty Early Elementary School. She spent Tuesday afternoon with a preschool class there.
"The other kids were very kind to her and excited to have a new friend in class," an announcement on the school district website said.
Local news crews reported on the bittersweet experience.
"When we found out last Monday that our days are truly numbered with her, I wanted to give her what she truly wanted," said Ava's mother, Kacy Parker, WTHR reported.
