From Ariane Clark 💕

✨Wild garden✨A little bit of magic, here in this world. Just a sliver of her energy to bring us some joy as we try to muddle through this deep sadness. I didn’t take any pictures yesterday, but I can assure you it was beyond beautiful, every single minute of it, despair and all. 🌈🌷 I spent an hour sorting and watering all the flowers last night while part of me wanted to just sink into that deep abyss of grief and float away. But there was a healing peace in taking small steps to move forward and care for something of such beauty.💐 I’m sad, and I think I’ll be sad for the rest of my life, but I hope to find joy and magic every day. That’s what Ellery would do, I owe it to her.✨🌈🦄 #ellerysarmy #thisischildhoodcancer #findthemagicineverything #elleryslegacy

EDIT TO ADD: This community is so amazing! The second round of pre orders is now open. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 🦄 ✨

This year, a very special, strong, and sparkly girl, Ellery Clark, fought a valiant fight against a rare, aggressive cancer. In late November, our world, and her neighbourhoods in Hamilton, and East Toronto became a little less shimmery, as her fight ended, and she passed on. Ellery and her family have shown such tremendous strength and grace throughout their fight, and those of us who have followed along have had the privilege of accompanying this amazing group of people on a very hard journey.
Through the Clarks' journey, many of us also learned that childhood cancer receives less than 5% of the funds raised for cancer research. Now that this part has come to an end, we’d like to find some ways to hold them close in their grief and support them in what comes next. Join The East End’s Blessing of Unicorns in a sharing some love and support for The Clark family and Ellery's Army with a special reminder of strong, magical Ellery.
This graphic was designed by Liz Mac for Ellery, to be used for fundraising for the family and for childhood cancers. The ornament was created by Stacey Chong, of Toronto Yoga Co. Suggested minimum donation of $15. All proceeds will go to the Clark family.
During the Holiday Market at Gotamago, the unicorn ornaments will be available for a suggested donation of $15; plus, each of our vendors will be donating a portion of their proceeds to the Clark family.
If you are unable to join us for the market this coming Saturday, the Unicorn ornaments can be ordered through Gotamago and picked up at Lost + Found or Gotamago and two pick up points in Hamilton (tbc). The ornaments will also be available at Gotamago after the market in limited quantities.

From Ariane Clark ❤️

Today has been the hardest day so far.✨ We had to chose some of Ellery’s favourite things to send on with her on this last journey. We brought her some favourite stuffies, beautiful beads, her purple rainbow sequin shirt and some other sparkly duds, a feather from nanny, a book from Auntie Lo, and her very very long string of #braverybeads.✨ We brought the girls to say goodbye one last time to their Sleeping Beauty sister. It was all pretty surreal, and impossibly sad, but because she is magic, and still here, she sent us a little something to lighten our heavy hearts.🌷💜 A single rose in her favourite shade of pinky purple was waiting for us on the bench outside the immaculate funeral home. We love you too Ellery. We’ll see you again sweet girl.💜🌷

Those last perfect autumn days, when the sunshine is so bright, the wind is warm and there is love all around. We are beyond grateful for our community support coming together yesterday to hold each other up and light the way for Ellery. Yesterday was a true testament to Ellery’s ability to bring an entire community together, to support, love and include everyone. Ellery’s sparkle was all around us and we continue to feel her magic everywhere. There is a reason so many purple balloons somehow found their way into the sky. 🌈💕🦄 #ellerysarmy #thisischildhoodcancer

From Ariane Clark 💕
Every year there is one last perfect day before winter and Ellery and I would spend it together.💕 Today is that day and I’d like you all to spend it with us.✨ Friends, family, and community members, if you are in the Hamilton area please join us at Gage Park this afternoon (November 26th) to run and play in the last glow of the fading sun, before winter sets in. Bring your unicorns and sparkliest attire and a candle to light at dusk. We will meet at the Gage Park fountain from 4-4:30 and then head over to the playground for hot chocolate. Our voices and candle light will help light her way on this journey into the unknown. 🦄✨💕 We are currently working out actual funeral arrangements, (which I can assure you IS as sh*tty as you would imagine) but I couldn’t let this perfect day pass us by without sharing it with Ellery.

If you are looking for ways to help, please consider the following:

- Be an active listener for friends and family that may be struggling with this difficult news
- Make a contribution to the Ellery’s Army Gofundme page in support of the Clark family https://ca.gofundme.com/f/ellery039s-unicorn-fun

Consider monetary gifts or gifts of service in lieu of material things; gifts such as flowers, toys, and food can become overwhelming and difficult to manage during a time of grief.

From Ariane Clark 💕

✨Oh Ellery, my sweet sparkly girl.✨ No more pokes, no more tubes, no more pain. If there is a heaven or a Valhalla you are surely there now for you fought with valour and grace, and your spirit never gave up. You’ve left your tired body behind and now I feel you EVERYWHERE. There is a tightness in my chest, but I know that is YOU, snuggling up close, so I can take you with me forever.✨ We didn’t expect to have such a short time with you, but the time we had was golden. You filled up every second with love, kindness, and magic. You were truly too good for this world. I was hoping that you would be the one to spark something new and good, you were charismatic yet empathetic, even in preschool you made everyone play, but refused to play if anyone was excluded.✨
Anyone who knows us knows I always joked that you, with your feisty spirit, were sent here to challenge me. I didn’t know the half of it. You grew my patience and my capacity for love in ways that I honestly still can’t comprehend. You broke my heart wide open and filled it with love.💗
If our life’s purpose is to make the world a better, brighter place, you have succeeded my love. My heart is broken, but only because it is bursting with love for you and now it has no where to go, and it’s painful. I will light a candle for you, to guide the way if it’s dark on your journey.💕
I’m so thankful I got to know you, and for everything you have given us. I’m not sure how I will face another day if you aren’t physically here, even if you are always here, filling up my heart to the brim.💗
You did so good kid. I couldn’t be more proud of you. Love forever, mamma. ✨#thisischildhoodcancer #ellerysarmy

From Ariane Clark

Today or sometime soon is likely our last day with our sweet girl Ellery.💔 Her spirit has fought so hard, but her little body can’t keep up. It has been an absolute honour to be her mother and I’m so grateful she chose me to spend her time with here on earth.✨ I hope we gave her everything her little heart desired and then some. I’m so glad I got to be along for the ride of ice cream, face painting, playing outside, unicorns and sparkles, and magic in everything we did. I truly had the best childhood by being her mom, I can never thank her enough. 💞
Thank you to everyone who has been here with us, loving us, loving her, sharing in our highs and lows. I know this news will darken your day, but I hope her story and her life lights up your heart like it does mine.✨
Even in this darkness I’m grateful for how fortunate we have been in this lifetime, our children have never experienced war or poverty or violence, even if Ellery’s life is being cut short by childhood cancer. Rhabdomyosarcoma in particular is it’s own living hell, but I’m forever thankful for these extra 6 months we got with our amazing kiddo. Having been in the PICU as long as we have we know that a lot of families aren’t so lucky.✨
Even with all this time I am not prepared, how can anyone prepare to lose a piece of their heart. I just hope the excess love I have for her will overflow into her sisters and the rest of our friends and family. My love for her will carry me forever.✨
Ellery will shortly be off chasing shooting stars, over the rainbow, and headed #intotheunknown💫🌈🦄❄️ #thisischildhoodcancer #ellerysarmy

An update from Ariane Clark ✨

The first movie Ellery ever saw was Frozen❄️. She was only 3 weeks old, which sounds implausible, but we were driving back from a family get together and passed by a drive-in and thought what the hell🤷🏽‍♀️. I can’t say whether she liked it or not, but she didn’t cry, and that‘s saying something for a tiny squawky Ellery. It’s fair to say she’s been mildly obsessed her entire life. Her first real experience trick or treating with her bestie James, she asked me to make her an Elsa costume, and of course I obliged. I hand cut paper snowflake stencils and our entire house ended up covered in glitter. ✨She had the best time✨. This year she was unable to leave the ICU, but she still chose to dress up as her favourite Ice Queen❄️👑 All this backstory to say that, it doesn’t looks like she’s going to get to see @disneyfrozen 2 even though it comes out in a week. She just doesn’t have that time. We are doing our best to make her comfortable, but the general consensus is that we have past the point of miracles, and you know she tried.✨💕 We all tried🙏 I don’t know if this would have been her @makeawishca Big Wish, I guess we always thought she’d just get to go home by the time it was out, but she never got to come home permanently or make any wishes, she got so sick so fast.✨ Big shout out to @joshgad ☃️for tagging @disney and sharing our story, and for his followers for tagging @kristenanniebell @daxshepard as well. If there was ever a magical Christmas wish worth granting, this would be it. #thisischildhoodcancer #ellerysarmy

An update from Ariane Clark ❤️

A little update: I’ve been reluctant to post recently as Ellery’s condition has really been up and down and we’ve been taking it one day at a time. We’ve had some great days this week as all of her scans came back saying that the cancer that was there just 6 weeks ago is no longer showing up. No evidence of disease. No cancer, or it is dead or dormant at least. ✨
I wish I could celebrate. I wish I could jump for joy. My kid beat cancer. But in truth, cancer is still beating her. Her little body and it’s systems took such a beating that she really isn’t bouncing back. Today everything took a turn for the worse. She’s developed another infection in her blood, her lungs have fluid and blood in them, her liver isn’t working well, and her kidneys are shutting down.✨
It’s entirely possible tonight is her last night. I hope not and we are pulling out every trick we can think of, medically and energetically, still hoping for a miracle.🙏
She’s done it before.✨
If you have a little energy and love to send her way tonight, she could really use it, we all could.💕🌈🦄

Help Ellery Karate Kick Cancer!

5 year old Ellery Clark was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, an extremely rare form of aggressive cancer in her head, neck and spine. Ellery is a child that often defies adjectives to describe her: she is beautiful, selfless, sweet, feisty and truly marches to the beat of her own drum. It is almost unfathomable to think of such a sweet young girl afflicted by such an awful illness. She went from playing and running around with her younger twin sisters Ava and Rory only a few weeks ago, to beginning chemotherapy and radiation treatments. We thank you for your donations, thoughts, wishes and prayers to help this little girl karate-chop her way through this diagnosis and emerge her beautiful, radiant self on the other side of treatment.
