Little Layla Grace passed away this morning after suffering a painful and excruciating death from Neuroblastoma.
My heart aches for this family.
Why do children have cancer?
It's bad enough when anyone is diagnosed...but a child?
My prayers tonight will be for Layla Grace's family. Her mother, father, brother and sister and the countless others who will ache for a long time over the loss of this child.
Their faith and only that has sustained them throughout Layla's illness. They believe that Layla's short little precious life had a purpose and they believe that God holds the reasons.
That belief won't stop the raw and searing pain that I know they are feeling today.
They have lost a child.
How do you lose a child?
I don't know.
I don't want to know.
Children should not die of cancer.
In the coming weeks and months I hope that Layla's family will continue their plight to promote awareness of Neuroblastoma and other childhood cancers.
I pledge to do whatever I can to do the same.
