This week’s Wednesday Props is a super-special one. I know I will be praying for this little girl.
It has just come to my attention that a little girl named Kailee–only 14 months old, which puts her at Zoey’s age–has brain cancer. Her relative is a friend of Greg’s on Facebook and he sent me a text this morning about how they just posted about little Kailee’s fight. Because she is the same age as Zoey and because Greg said she is so adorable (I can’t look at her picture because I’m already crying), I feel the need to shout to the world how amazing this little girl must be.
I don’t know her last name. I’ve never seen her face. All I know is she’s in round 2 or 3 of 5 rounds of chemo. A 14-month old. It just shouldn’t happen. It’s just not fair.
But let’s be honest here. This is the bravest little girl in the entire world. 14 months old and she’s already putting up one hell of a fight already because she’s dealing with it. THAT’S why she deserves much more than props this week. She deserves the biggest, most amazing kudos EVER because she is a rock star as far as I’m concerned.
And, of course, so are her parents, whom I’ve never met. They’re in the trenches too–every day–and I feel for them. I really do. They all deserve our love and prayers. It doesn’t matter that you’ve never met them. Everyone in one way or another has been affected by cancer. And once again, this is a 14 month old. Say a prayer.
There is going to be a benefit soon for little Kailee. If anyone is interested in more information, including the address for the family’s website, please contact me and I’ll ask the family’s permission to post it on here.
And to Kailee and her parents: We might not know you, but we support you and our hearts and prayers are with you. God bless.
