BRIMFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - A young Brimfield girl who was suddenly diagnosed with a life-changing disease, has spent the last year weak and in pain.
The Lia Auto Group Surprise Squad used the dark knight to help her through this battle.
Alivia Lavallee is a bubbly first grader at Brimfield Elementary School
She does everything with her brothers,11-year-old Adarius and 5-month-old Dawson.
From Lego challenges, to riding on the back of a dirt bike, Alivia has no limits.
"She had a lot of sores building up throughout her throat, intestines, just everywhere. [It was] very stressful, very sad. I didn't really know what to do or where to turn," said Alivia's mom, Gabrielle Lavallee.
Frail and weak, Alivia spent a lot of her kindergarten year at the doctors
"In June we got the diagnosis of Crohn's Disease," said Lavallee.
While 6-year-old Alivia has been battling Crohn's Disease, her idol that helps her through it all is Batman.
Just like the caped crusadors, Western Mass News and the Lia Auto Group Surprise Squad swung into action and brought all things Gotham to Alivia.
"She's been really strong through this. He's like a superhero so she feels like she is Batman," Lavallee added.
A Dark Knight doll, blankets, movies, Lego's and more were brought to Alivia, along with some year-round passes to Six Flags.
The Lavallee's spent most of the summer at home because of Alivia's painful health issues, and the financial burden that accompanies it.
"We couldnt really go anywhere or go out to eat or do anything," Lavallee noted.
Now that Alivia is on new medication, a getaway to the Great Wolf Lodge in Fitchburg what the Surprise Squad prescribed for the family of five.
