Bondurant girl dies, community mourns

BONDURANT - Ava Hutchinson would have been 12 years old on Wednesday, but her family has informed Local 5 that she passed away on Monday after a decade-long battle with brain cancer.

Local 5 met Ava in 2016, after she made national news for requesting one special thing for her 11th birthday: cards from all over. Her family is now asking everyone who knew her to wear her favorite colors on Wednesday: purple, pink, and gold. She would have been 12 years old.

Take a look at Local 5's Elias Johnson's journey with Ava from September 2016, and how much she meant to the Bondurant community.
