Written by Carla Ronnebaum

Clare is a four year old from Cleveland, Ohio who was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) on June 18, 2018.

Clare is sunshine mixed with a little hurricane. Clare is an avid baker – she expertly picks the eggs to use when making cookies and stirs the batter with vigor when making muffins. Clare is quickly becoming an expert in royal fashions. Her favorite princesses include Elsa, Anna, Rapunzel, Ariel, Belle and Cinderella. She is a serious artist. While she has mastered drawing a circle, her favorite shape is a triangle. Her favorite color changes each day of the week, but she can frequently be found wearing pink. And she is always wearing a bow. The bigger the better.

She is an amazing mama to her baby dolls and stuffed animals. She is an incredible big sister to Maren – always squeezing and squishing her little face and giving her kisses.

Clare loves bubbles, play-doh, deer, cows, princesses, Peppa Pig, bumble bees, and the moon. She dislikes the Easter Bunny, band aids, the hospital, and spiders.

She has been a miracle since the very beginning.
