Six-year-old Avery Huffman, who was recently diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, received a special treat from the actress and luckily, Avery’s father, Brandon Huffman, recorded and shared his daughter’s reaction on YouTube.
In the video, the little girl listens as the actress greets the young super fan with a huge, sing-songy “Hello!”—which lights up Avery’s face (and melts our hearts). Bell goes on to congratulate Avery for being “so brave” and such a “good girl” and then pauses to speak to her sister, Queen Elsa. She then continues with her voicemail to announce that the queen wants to name Avery an honorary princess of Arendelle! “I think you’ll make a great princess,” Bell says.
Avery’s parents have created an official Caring Bridge page where they ask for prayers for their daughter. They have also been chronicling the daughter's remarkable journey on Twitter with the hashtags #AveryStrong and #Pray4Avery.
