This is about a fellow scrapbooker - a very talented and caring lady ~Nikki.
On Tuesday April 29th, 2008, her daughter Ellie was diagnosed with a diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG); an incredibly aggressive and inoperable tumor in her brain stem. There is no known cure for this rare tumor and only a 10% survival rate.
Well this morning I awoke to read this message...

Our sweet Ellie Rose left this earth tonight at 9:15pm to go home to Jesus. She was surrounded by family and friends and so many who loved her. She raised her right hand to Heaven and I could feel God reach down and carry her safely to His kingdom, where I am confident that she was greeted by many fellow angels. She passed peacefully, while lying between her mama and dada. We love you, sweet little Ellena ~ you will be forever 5, forever whole and forever in our hearts until we meet again.
My heart just aches and I don't have the words to express my deep sorrow for this family - we want to help in a small way - and if you would like to help please follow this link to Pinky's Blog... http://blueyecicle.blogspot.com/
Any donation big or small would be extremely appreciated - even a dollar - it all adds up. I know times are hard for a lot of people right now - but this family really needs our prayers and our support. Thank you!!
