Lila, once a vibrant and enthusiastic child enamored with life, underwent a transformation as she grew older. Witnessing the harsh realities of the world, she grappled with the injustices and inequalities that surrounded her, leading to a shift in her demeanor. Concerned for their daughter, Lila's parents offered comfort and guidance, emphasizing the existence of kindness and hope despite the world's challenges.

Over time, Lila decided to confront the negativity by engaging in altruistic activities, such as volunteering at an orphanage and participating in environmental conservation efforts. However, as she matured, her idealistic perspective waned, and she confronted the persistent issues of poverty, discrimination, and violence.

Despite her growing cynicism, a pivotal moment rekindled Lila's sense of purpose. Witnessing a bullying incident, she intervened and stood up for the victim, realizing that goodness and kindness persisted even in dark moments. This experience empowered her and reinforced the importance of resilience.

As Lila transitioned into adulthood, she retained her love for life but with a more nuanced understanding of its challenges. She recognized the strength of the human spirit and embraced her role in making a positive impact. Lila's parents, proud of her resilience, witnessed their daughter navigate life's complexities with courage and a continued passion for spreading love and positivity.

Much too soon after she was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Hypertension when she was six years old. Several years before her illness, Lila saw Maria Warrick's aged and tortured face on television. She told her mommy how sad the story made her feel. So her mommy asked her what she wanted to do to make Maria feel better. Lila simply said 'I want to give her my heart.' Sadly, this was not to be. But her mother is offering you the opportunity to make this dream come true. Maria is a sugar skull giclee print taken from Lila's original artwork and drawn with her very spirit. She invites you to add your own heart to the print by personalizing it with any sentiment you will choose.
