Ali and Donya
Description
Ellen, This is Ali and her BFF Madison, Ali had Batten Disease and gained her heavenly wings at the age of seven. Ali was taken way too soon from her BFF Madison. These two girls are very strong, brave and amazing little ladies. Even though battens had taken Alis ability to see, talk and walk these two had their on special way of communicating. They communicated Thur their hearts , body language and eyes. You know as they say your eyes can see straight to the soul and just imagine if we could see life through a child's eyes. They have a special bond then and now and no one can take that from them not even Batten's. Please join our team and continue this fight against Batten's disease.

Hi Ellen....Ali was an angel on Earth along with her bff, Madison....I came across li'l Angelbaby Ali's picture one day, and immediately my heart was stolen! I have come to know other Angels on Earth through Ali's Angels Facebook page. Then Ali went on to heaven, and so many of us crumbled inside yet somehow grew closer and stronger and even more determined to bring awareness to the disease that took out Angel Ali, among many other Angels, called Batten's disease. In the beginning I wasn't even sure which illness Ali had. I only knew, she was my li'l Angel baby. I became familiar with the name, but I was too afraid to read up on the symptoms...I knew it was fatal, but I was to afraid to think about it. I'm not sure how long I have been following Ali and her amazing family of Angels, but I was and am currently battling depression and addiction, plus a whole boatload of other fun stuff. However, even on my darkest of days, and I would be locked inside my house....I would come across a picture of my Angel baby Ali! And I would feel that little flame inside being fanned and God spoke to me through this little girl....to keep pushing forward...please consider having Ali's momma, Donya A. Catlett on your show...we desperately need to find a cure for Batten's....I love you, Angelbably Ali!!!

Ali strong Madison all the way. Gone to soon but never forgotten. Touched so many lives in so very little time. Battens needs a cure. Without awareness no cure no cure means more beauty's gain their wings long before they should.

This is ALI and Madison. Imagine if you were in Madison's place today as Ali's BFF and your best friend had left you how you would miss her. Please Ellen help find a cure for this horrible disease so that no child has to lose their BFF with Batten's.
