My heart is crying for Scarlett

It's been approximately 2 weeks since I have posted my previous article. In such little while, I had to read a number of devastating posts appearing in my facebook news feed. It is shocking to see multiple of those news in such short time. Maybe because I expand the number of journeys to follow.


I wanted to write about Scarlett for some reason. I met her story just 2 days ago, I wish I could do it earlier. I am sad to hear she gained her angel wings yesterday. There happened a singing charity event for her today, however Scarlett couldn't make it to see it. She has a younger sister, Annabel who is as sweet and beautiful as Scarlett. Needless to say they loved each other so big. The shared posts of the sisters makes me feel broken inside. No doubt it is too early for little sister to understand everything at all. I can't fathom the pain the family is feeling. I wish people who neglect childhood cancer read how the momma expresses her feelings in the posts.

Scarlett was 4 years old. She was diagnosed with Wilms' tumor in July 2019. She was getting treatment at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University in Georgia. She was a natural born pilot, you can see her flying an airplane in the facebook page. I love her smile. She will keep reminding me of what I am supposed to do for childhood cancer awareness.
