Not even 24 hours have passed since Camilla passed away and I got another devastating news from Tessa's page. Tessa had been fighting Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor (ATRT), that is a fast-growing brain cancer, since she was 3 months old. She had been through many difficult procedures in spite of her little body and young age. She was only 15 months old, as much young as Camilla whose loss is so fresh in my heart. Again, 15 months is way too early for anything. Two little innocent babies have lost their earthly lives in 2 consecutive days because of cancer, and I feel disturbingly wrecked and hopeless. I can't even begin to imagine how the families are getting through such grief. It's too heavy.
I enjoyed following Tessa's journey. You can easily say that she had the sweetest little face. I loved the photos with her unicorn pacifier. She just wanted to grow up in arms of her beautiful parents. Tessa has a 3 year-old sister, Rylee, and I am very sorry for her too. She is too young to understand the loss of her beloved sister.
You will always be missed and loved, Tessa! Rest in piece.
