It is with unbearable sadness we received the news yesterday morning that Phoebe Rose had died.
Her incredible strength and the tireless love, belief and pursuit of a cure by her family had so many of us hoping she would defeat the monstrous cancer, MLL and infantile leukemia, with which she was diagnosed at 9weeks of age. Her journey is documented here in her mother Jenny’s blog.
Last night we lit a candle for Phoebe Rose, her sister Mae and her family. Phoebe Rose’s indomitable spirit will live on in our hearts but 5 years is too short a life and 3% of the healthcare budget is too little for these brave children.
Keep shining Phoebe Rose and rest easy.
