Ella has breast cancer and a hollow diagnosis, but that doesn’t mean her last days have to be sad ones. She was brought in as a pregnant 5-year-old stray by Rescued Ohio; only two months after being placed with foster mom Brittnie Baker, Ella found out she has terminal cancer. Baker decided to make sure Ella’s last few weeks were going to be as amazing as possible – starting with a Day of Destruction.
