– A former Hinsden child and his mother say they have been fighting cancer for years and that they have lost hope of ever finding a cure.
Hinsdale’s family of four were diagnosed with a form of brain cancer in 2016 and their family said it is hard to understand how the child’s condition has continued to worsen.
The family said they have learned to live with the illness, but still suffer anxiety, sleep apnea and frequent seizures.
They say they were finally diagnosed last year and have been living in the hospital since then, with their daughter being given chemo.
She has undergone multiple surgeries, including three operations on her left hand and right leg.
Their daughter, who was born in March, is on chemo for the first time.
In her letter, the girl said she’s learned to fight her condition.
“I am fighting to make this right,” she wrote.
“I want to be alive to see a miracle.
But I’m afraid it may be too late.
I don’t know what else to do.”
The family’s letter to the Hinsdell City Council read, in part:We need your help and your support to make our dreams a reality.
I am a child of God.
I know that he will save my life.
I want to live a good life, with my family, my friends and my faith.
I pray that God will give me strength to carry on with my faith and fight cancer.
We hope that you will consider our letter to you, and that you recognize the importance of this young girl and that we deserve to live and love our lives as they should be.
