Pablove Across America 2011 Day 6 Evening Dedication: Bella Jane Quayle and Rhema Butler

Bella was a feisty, energetic little girl we met in Portland during Pablove Across America 2010. Despite undergoing a cord blood transplant for an ALL diagnosis, Bella grabbed the photographer's camera, turned it on the riders, and made everyone smile. She lost her battle after not responding to treatment on July 10, 2011. Rhema Butler was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive cancer called desmoplastic small round cell tumor in 2009. She inspired everyone around her and even started her own foundation, Rhema's Reality, to help other kids like herself. On June 6, 2011 she passed away at the age of 12.
