But now my mama heart aches with hers even more. A couple days after Christmas came, they learned that their four year old daughter has leukemia. They had to hear the words every parent fears, "Your child has cancer." She wrote, "We are living my worst nightmare. How do you tell your four year old that she has cancer, that her beautiful long hair will fall out in two weeks, that she will be in the hospital for a long time, that she can't go back to school, that she can't be around other kids, that she will be on chemo for three years, and that throwing up will be her new 'normal'? Our sweet Hazel has been diagnosed with Leukemia. Please pray for our little girl. We have a very long road ahead of us. Hazel is strong, she is brave, and she will beat this. She is my hero."
I personally have been sobbing ever since reading this. How can so much happen to this poor family in just 6 weeks. I'm heartbroken. They are fighters, but they need help. The last thing they need to worry about is the financial strain of all the medical procedures they both have gone through, and will be going through. All they need to worry about is being there for each other.
I went to high school with Veronica and have stayed connected through social media. After posting about her story on my social media I had many people ask if there was a gofundme set up for her and Hazel, since there wasn't I was asked by people wanting to help to get one set up. So here we are! Please help lessen the financial burden for this sweet family and keep them in your prayers. Let's help bouy them up with our love!
