Three years ago, four little girls met under difficult circumstances, forged a friendship, and took some pictures in tutus.
Each year since, the quartet—Chloe Grimes, Lauren Glynn and McKinley Moore, now 6, and Avalynn Luciano, now 5—return to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital to don their tutus, smile together and reconnect with the staff. It’s timed to Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month in September.
The four Florida girls met while being treated for cancer in 2016 at the St. Petersburg, Fla., hospital.
This year Lauren was back in the hospital to undergo CAR-T therapy, so her three friends had even more reason to return to Johns Hopkins and give her some love and support.
