It's so hard to comprehend I don't have my baby right by my side any longer! Like what does that mean? I'm waiting for him to yell "mommy" so I can go pick up from the game room, but reality is that at 5:06 am On July 27, 2017 Leo unexpectedly gained his Angel wings! . I'm still trying to comprehend what is happening, I really am.
For those that may not know, my sweet boy was Diagnosed with a "rare" form of cancer at only 18months old. 18 MONTHS!
He received two bone marrow transplant and beat many many obticles of us being told he wouldn't make it to the very next hour. He had some health issues as I say the after math of transplant, but he was thriving he was now happy, he told me every single day "momma, I happy, you happy?" "Yes, baby I'm happy if ur happy" he beat cancer he beat every heath issue after.
Then suddenly on Tuesday July 25,2017 Leo became ill vomiting and some abdomen pain. Test were done but nothing showed but constipation. His health declined fast and in two day he was gone. Little did we know he may have had a bad infection brewing without revealing itself that tragically took his life.
Leo was/is my hero. For almost 4 years he fought so hard day after day to be a part of this world he was my joy, he was my pride, he was my rock.....and now I have nothing! I'm not sure now what I'm suppose to do I miss him terribly. No parent should have to lay their child to rest it's so unfair but it's reality it's our reality. There was no sign of Leo leaving this world this soon we are financial unprepaird. Leo's daddy will have to continue to work to pay for the services and to continue to house our family. Life continues right? But how?
Im asking for anyone that can possibly help financially, to help take this burden off our family. No amount is to small and we will be forever grateful. Leo deserves the best service ever he was the most happiest kid even through out his challenges he always smiled with a thumbs up. Please if you have it in your heart to donate anything will help at this time in need. It will help lay Leo to rest and help his daddy be able to stay home and us grieve together as a family.
most importantly please keep our family in prayer. We all need it during this time. Leo's sister has no clue her baby brother is no longer here with us as she is away at camp in Tehachapi. She won't find out until Saturday. Please please keep us in prayer
thank you all,
