An 8 year old’s Legacy

Published on July 8, 2019 in Share Your Story

On February 7th, 2019, Zaihel left this Earth physically as a result of being diagnosed with malignant Brain Stem Glioma. He was 8 years old and left behind beautiful memories and a life changing testimony. There is so much lost when you lose someone to a brain tumor, and there is so much pain. However, there is also so much gratitude when you have had the opportunity to know and love someone like I did my son. He changed who I was and truly made me a better person. I am honored to have been given the chance to be his Mother. Zaihel deserved a chance at surviving this terminal tumor, and those who have been diagnosed or have yet to be diagnosed deserve this chance too. In honor of Zaihel and all of your loved ones, let us unite to support this cause.
