InDelicato, whose mother, Donna is a two-time breast cancer survivor, said she decided at an early age that she wasn't going to let her mom brave the battle alone.
While she awaits word of her status, the bright-eyed little girl, who has been dancing since she was a toddler and hopes to become a plastic surgeon when she grows up, is already in deep preparations for the 2014 Avon Walk.
Thanks to the Internet, word soon spread of the girls' project and a craft company from the West Coast promptly mailed InDelicato a box brimming with free supplies.
Setting up shop inside Windham High School outside the March town meeting polls, InDelicato and her friends sold nearly $400 worth of flowers that first year alone.
Twirling an oversized, pink daisy between her palms, Donna Bramante InDelicato said her daughter's flowers have a particularly poignant meaning.
"The flowers just keep coming back," the elder InDelicato said. "It's just such a hopeful symbol."For more information on the Kohl's Cares Scholarship Program, go to kohlskids.com.AGuilmet@newstote.com
