Our beautiful and brave DD3 lost her battle against a brain tumour on 2nd July.She was 6 years old. The end came very quickly, just 2 wks after we were told it had spread, though she had been ill for a few weeks, we were hoping it was just the chemo hitting her hard. So devastated, I am weeping all the time it seems, how can you help the other children cope when you can't do it yourself?
I am glad she died at home in our bed with me, my worst nightmare would have been a long slow decline in Birmingham Children's hospital, I am trying to comfort myself with this one thing. The grief seems unbearable otherwise.

What a gorgeous wee girl. I am so sorry for the loss of your darling Flora. Our friends lost their beautiful daughter just weeks ago to childhood cancer also, it is a terrible, cruel illness and I am so sorry your little girl had to go through any of it . My DD has a big heart shaped locket with wings on with a photo of her friend in to wear when she feels very sad, perhaps your girls would like to do that too. She also decorated a sky lantern all over with her felt tips in her friends favourite colour and released it. You can also get lovely memory boxes from Winston's Wish they can collect little things that remind them of her in. Thinking of you and your family.

3girlies Lovely photos, thank you for sharing them with us x

It's so unfair and so frightening how such a healthy looking child can go downhill so quickly sad I think your husband is right and in time you will feel some relief that she didn't suffer for longer - but right now it's too raw for that and all you can think about is the time lost with her. It's just so so so bloody unfair. I wish we could all shoulder some of the pain for you or better still, if I'm wishing, bring her back to you.

Collecting the ashes is so difficult isn't it - partly you are relieved at having them & yet on the other hand it's so final... it's all wrong, so wrong having to do it at all. There's nothing to stop you keeping them, you could always have them buried/scattered with you...

Lots of love & strength

What a beautiful littlle girl. I lost one of my twins at 24h many years ago but it really is absolutely nothing compared with losing a child you have that shared time with. 3girlies and expat I admire your strength so so much. It really is the most unfair horrible thing in the whole world. Like everyone else here I'm sure my 4 children (even though eldest is 18) are the centre of my life. You people are truly fantastic.
