A Mother's Wish

A young wife, a new mother...the perfect life.  In just a few months after the birth of her baby girl,  Miranda returned to her doctor for a small lump she found during a routine self exam.  That small lump turned out to be Stage 4 Breast Cancer.  

For the past four years, Miranda, her husband Kevin, and their baby girl Lyla Kate, along with the support of her family and friends, have battled this disease.  This battle has had many small victories, but the losses have won the war.  

Last Monday, Miranda and Kevin were given the devastating news that she may not see Lyla start school in August.  She may never celebrate another Halloween, a family Thanksgiving, or the joys of Christmas morning.  Within three to six months, Miranda will leave this Earth and take wing above.

I received a call this morning from her husband Kevin.  With a catch in his voice and the sob of tears, he shared with me that one of the things this disease will rob them of is Miranda's wish to take her daughter to see Cinderella Castle.  She had planned from the time Lyla Kate was born to walk with her down Main Street to see the shiny balloons and watch Lyla's eyes as they saw the pages of a storybook come to life.  Her small jar of collected change and random bills, filled with as much as a working class family can spare, sits in the corner of the den, forever waiting as it collects dust, not change.

As Miranda's life reaches its end, it is our wish to leave Kevin and Lyla Kate with the memory of walking hand in hand with her down Main Street, U.S.A.  We want to give them a chance to ride Cinderella's Golden Carousel as the lights twinkle and music plays.  We want them to spin madly in the Mad Hatter's Teacups and bounce along with Winnie-the-Pooh.  As night falls, we want them to sit together, hand in hand, and watch the Happily Ever After fireworks. 

Perhaps, for that one moment in time, Miranda's dream of finding her own lifelong dream of Happily Ever After will last forever in the eyes and hearts of husband and daughter long after she's gone.

Won't you please help us make this dream a reality?

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
