So many people say that Eliana was a bright light in this world. There was a sense of peace and joy when being with her. She loved life, and did not let her cancer stop her from exploring the world and enjoying all things.
Treatment Outcome: Bereaved
William was always putting people before himself and he lived each day with a positive attitude and a smile on his face. Even on his really difficult days. Walking out of that hospital without my son was the most difficult thing I have ever had to do, and I continue to put one foot in front of the other every day since. I honor him by doing my best to live the same.
Having a child is carrying a piece of your heart outside of your body. Losing a child is having to carry that empty space with you for always. It is a wound that never heals. We had hope and tried to make every day count for Odin.
Everything felt unreal and everything happened so fast. Treatment was work then all of a sudden it was not and Caden was gone. There was nothing I could do to save my baby. There was no real treatment to help him fight. I felt completely powerless and defeated.
….having your infant son take his last breathe in your arms. Something I would never wish on anyone but also something I wouldn’t change for a second. I was there to bring him into this world and I was there to ease and comfort him on his way out.
