Heartbreaking Moment When a 6-Year-Old Says Goodbye to His Younger Sister with Rare Cancer
Kids, especially younger kids, are one of the purest, most honest creatures. In the following article, you will take a look at the touching moment when a 6-year-old boy said his last goodbye to his younger sister who had been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The parents managed to capture the moment on camera, and now, they want to raise awareness about this disease.
Matt Sooter, the father of 4-year-old Adalynn “Addy” Sooter, captured a heartbreaking moment when his 6-year-old son said his last goodbye to his younger sister. Addy had been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), which grows from the brainstem. Matt shared a photo of the moment on his Facebook page, where it received over 8,000 reactions and comments.
After Addy’s passing, her parents decided to raise awareness about DIPG and encourage others to donate to scientific research. They shared the story on their Facebook page “Hope for Addy Joy – Fighting DIPG,” where they stated that they donated the areas affected by the tumor to scientific research. The family hopes that their contribution will help other families not to lose their young children.
Losing a young child is an unimaginable tragedy, and Addy’s family is coping with their loss. Matt shared that their older son, Jackson, wasn’t doing so well with leaving his sister. The family is taking comfort in the fact that Addy passed away without any pain at the end and that she went stubbornly and peacefully. They hope that by sharing their story, they can help raise awareness about DIPG and encourage others to donate to scientific research.
Share this heart-wrenching story with your friends and family to raise awareness about DIPG and encourage others to donate to scientific research. Let us all come together to fight this rare form of cancer and prevent other families from losing their young children. May Addy’s soul rest in peace!
