I Can't Get This Little Girl Out.............

of my mind. Awhile ago I read about Francesca Kaczynski, nicknamed Bean. She was born in March of 2020 and diagnosed with a rare and aggresive brain tumor at 6 months old. Her Dad is an investigative reporter for CNN.

 

She passed away Christmas Eve from complications from chemotherapy, I believe.

 

I can't get that little girl out of my mind. There have been so many horror stories of death and illness in this wretched year and reading about her death on Christmas Day just.............I don't know a word to use.

 

You can read a tribute to her on CNN or just Google her.

These are the stories that really yank at my heart strings and push me to open my eyes and my checkbook to those in need around me.

What a nightmare for that family.

 

Sure puts my minor problems and inconveniences into perspective.

We all have our seasons of profound grief...and can empathize with those in the midst of theirs.  🥲

It's a very sad story. Instances of suffering and unfairness are legion. The world is full of them. I'm choosing to flagellate myself as infrequently as possible by not seeking them out and when I learn of them trying not to dwell on dreadful things over which I have no control.

life is not fair.

 

The Chemo killed the poor child... not the tumor. Sometimes the "cure: is worse than the illness......

@SeaMaiden   I think she got a fungal infection and ended up on a ventilator and life support.
