How Can I Help?
We lost our daughter, Megan at the tender age of nine after a long 2 ½ year battle with Leukemia. She was a sweet, caring, feisty, outgoing little girl. She taught me to not put off tomorrow what we can do today, to love those around us with all our heart, to be thankful for what we have because it can all be taken away in a heartbeat, and that it is our destined journey here on earth to reach out to those in need, helping anyway we can. Megan was such a kind considerate soul, always reaching out to others even in her toughest times. Megan faced her illness with a brave smile and a courageous heart, seldom shedding a tear for herself. While I held her hand, caressed her back and shed a lifetime of tears while she slept, and after she was gone. I never wanted her to see my fears. I couldn’t take away her pain or the cancer that forced her to go through everything she had to endure to fight it. I could only give her medication, soothe her aches with mommy’s tender touch and put my faith in the doctors and God to heal her. As a parent, you feel so helpless.
