Arianna Comes Home

April 13, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I have met Arianna many times in the playroom and in the halls at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), where my daughter and Arianna were both being treated for Leukemia. During every hospital stay we've had in the last seven months we'd see Arianna, her mom and dad roaming the halls playing music from their iPhones and cruising in a push car with smiles on their faces.  She was affectionately known as the mayor of the oncology floor at CHOP.  

My daughter adores Arianna and was always so excited to see her at art class, pet therapy or music class.  Arianna spent over a year at CHOP being treated for a rare form of leukemia. She has battled through more challenges in the last 14 months than many will face in a lifetime.  For that, her family has named her a warrior princess and on Wednesday, Arianna headed home from the hospital with a heroes welcome.  

Arianna was escorted to her home by the Evesham Police Department and the Warriors Watch Riders.  When they arrived home they were greated by the St. Joan of Arc Parish WINGS dressed in some of Arianna's favorite Disney characters along with firetrucks and EMTS from the Evesham Fire Department.  @SarahBloomquist from 6abc was there to cover the surprise homecoming for Arianna and her family.  Arianna's Aunt Sandi pulled together an amazing surprise celebration to bring Arianna home surrounded by family, friends and neighbors.  

It was a very special day for mom, Katrina, dad, Matt, and their warrior princess, Arianna.  Welcome home!
