6 year old leaves notes for family...

 

Telena-desserichhis is going to be the saddest story you will read all day...


A few days before her sixth birthday, Elena Desserich was handed a death sentence.  The little girl had been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor and was given an expiration date of about 135 days to live.


The little girl ended up living for 255 days (she ended up living for 255 days)...


Since then her parents, Brooke and Keith Desserich, have been finding notes written by their deceased daughter everywhere- in between CD cases, between bookshelves, in dresser drawers, in backpacks....

The couple has since published their daughter's pictures- some 400 of them to be exact- into a book called Notes Left Behind.  The book's proceeds are intended for The Cure Starts Now, a nonprofit organization dedicated in finding a cure for pediatric brain cancer.

Act tough all you want... there is no way you don't have a lump in your throat or a few salty tears welling up in your eyes.  It's ok...
