This little girl is Renee. She is one of the first kids I met when I was diagnosed. She was in the Los Angeles Children's hospital battling ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia). Her mom and my mom because instant friends and we quickly grew to love Renee and her family.
Renee had a long, hard battle but was always still giggly and happy. She always had a smile that could light up any room and a laugh that warmed your heart.
Renee unfortunately lost her battle to Leukemia at her home in her mother's loving arms. Renee's mother is one of the strongest women I know! She had two more children after Renee died and their house is full of angels and sweet memories of their precious, little girl. She was the sweetest, happiest little girl I have ever been blessed to know, and I told her mother that one day if I was blessed to have a little girl, she would be named after Renee. So, my Nikki Renee will always have an angel on her side.
Love you Nae-Nae!!!
