The amazing Miss Mia does it again! After Mia had surgery to remove a large tumor in her brain on Valentines Day, she recovered quickly and without complication. She went home from the hospital after six days and visited at school a week and a half after that! The symptoms that alerted us to her brain involvement have resolved.

Mia is currently in the PICU at Lutheran General. She has suddenly developed a “cancer meningitis” and is barely responsive. The cancer has not responded to the chemotherapy. There is nothing else they can do for her except to keep her comfortable. We hope to bring her home tomorrow into palliative hospice care.

Mia left us peacefully in Mommy’s arms last night. Daddy and Andrew were snuggled close and we had just finished saying our evening prayers. She is God’s most beautiful angel now and she is healed completely and forever.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your outpouring of love and support. It is deeply moving to see how many lives our beautiful Mia has touched. It has been very difficult living each day without our angel.
