Ava was diagnosed in late June with a rare form of brain cancer, glioblastoma multiforme. She underwent several surgeries and hospitalizations.
Her doctors said the type of cancer she had does not respond well to chemotherapy and radiation.
It's estimated thousands of people all over the world had been following a blog on Ava's progress and praying for her. Ava's grandfather, Joel Hunter, leads a congregation of 12,000 and serves on a advisory council to President Barack Obama.
Earlier this summer, the president called Joel Hunter privately to express his concern for Ava and offer his prayers.
