This little boy’s name was Ronan.
Call me bias, but I think he was the most beautiful boy to ever live. His eyes glowed and shined from the moment he was born. He was an old soul, he was nothing short of incredible.
He was also born into an amazing family. A wonderful dad, beautiful mom, and two loving twin brothers. Something had always been missing until Ronan came along. He pulled everything together.
On August 12th, 2010, their entire world came crashing down.
The little boy everyone loved and adored was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a form of childhood cancer.
Ronan’s family was never one to take things for granted. Even before Ronan was diagnosed, they knew how lucky they were. They appreciated everything they had, they loved their kids more than anything. They did nothing to deserve this.
Shortly after Ronan’s diagnosis his fight began. He started chemo-therapy and radiation. His gorgeous hair began to fall out, which made his eyes shine even more.
Ronan was following down the typical treatment plan for advanced Neuroblastoma until April of 2011, where scans revealed the chemo had stopped working. Ronan’s body just stopped responding. There was nothing they could do. Ronan would die.
The most beautiful boy to ever live left this world in the early morning hours of May 9th, 2011, in his mother’s arms.
Ronan’s death was preventable.
You see, childhood cancer receives less than 3% of all government funding. Yet, cancer is the number one cause of death by disease in children. Every 36 minutes, a child is diagnosed with cancer in the US. Every 4 hours, a child with cancer dies.
Had childhood cancer received the funding and awareness it deserves, Ronan would still be here.
But Ronan’s not here. And neither are the thousands of other children that have died of childhood cancer. They may not be here, but we are. And we can change the future for all the other kid’s that will be diagnosed. We can change it so that they won’t suffer and die the way Ronan did.
Ronan’s family has been torn to pieces. Imagine losing the best thing that had ever happened to you. Imagine your worst nightmare, coming true. I have never seen someone in as much pain as Ronan’s mom is right now.
Re-blog this. Re-blog it for Ronan. Re-blog it for all the innocent lives lost.
