A Champion’s Night To Remember

Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center’s 2019 Champion Child had a night to remember this weekend. Ten-year old Ellie LaBree from Glenburn won Make-A-Wish’s Jersey design contest this fall. And, on Saturday night, Ellie was on hand when the Maine Mariners donned Ellie’s design. She also had the chance to drop the ceremonial puck.

When Ellie was four, she was diagnosed with orbital rhabodomyosarcoma. She endured chemotherapy, blood transfusions, and she also received proton beam radiation, all while wearing a bright smile. Today, she is a happy and healthy 10-year old who is full of life and love. She loves to read, swim, play chess.
