Dear Jessica

A while ago my friend Dawn told me about her little niece Jessica. I think it was 2 years ago when Jessica was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor. For the last 2 years she (and her family) have been living in hospitals going through so many procedures and chemotherapy. 
I joined Jessica's facebook group and what amazed me the most was that no matter where she was or what she was going through she is always smiling ... always. She's such an amazing and brave little girl and every time I feel down because of life and stuff I just think about her and I smile, because I know she would be smiling.
Last night the doctors told her parents she only has a few hours to live. I think she is sedated so she is in no pain at all.
I started making a video for her that I wanted to give her in person but unfortunately I finished it today. I'm sad to think that I didn't have the honor to meet such an amazing little girl, but wherever you are now, dear Jessica, I just want to tell you that your smile will make me stronger whenever I need to be, that whenever I feel the need to complain or get angry or loose my patience I will think of how brave you were and I will smile too. Even I never met you in person I feel I know you and I will keep you in my thoughts.

  1. What a sweet little girl, I can't imagine how tough that would be for the family. Our prayers are with them and her.
