Residents of Raymore are decorating their mailboxes, doors and porches with lime green bows to show their love and support for Ella Schultz. It began in Stonegate and quickly spread throughout the city. Ray-Pec High School got involved when the girls wore green bows during the annual Powder Puff game on Sunday night at Panther Stadium and donated all their proceeds to Ella’s fight
Five year old, Ella, a quiet, but very sassy little girl that lives in the Raymore community was diagnosed with leukemia on July 14th and has spent the last month at Children’s Mercy Hospital undergoing chemo treatments to fight this terrible disease. “She was perfectly fine and the next day she’s not,” said Ella’s aunt, Heather Johnston.
After she completed her chemo treatments it was discovered that an infection had spread in her body. She will remain in intensive care where she can receive around the clock care.
Ella’s mother, Jennifer said, “We are incredibly grateful for the amazing outpouring of support from the community and it is truly humbling. Every green bow, every like on her page, every bracelet bought, every donation, every shaved head…I mean, it’s more than we could have ever imagined. And I hope that Lord willing when we get out of here we get to somehow explain to Ella the magnitude of the support she has gotten.”
