Layla Grace was born on this day - November 26th - four years ago with all the health that a baby could ecompass. She was always healthy - 80th percentile for weight - a great sleeper and eater!

This all changed when 16 month old Layla Grace was diagnosed with a fatal and aggressive form of childhood cancer, stage 4 neuroblastoma. From diagnosis- Layla embarked on an arduous journey that consisted of chemotherapy, stem cell transplant, countless blood and platelet transfusions, long stays in the hospital, and much more. Layla's small body was weakened due to this harsh and brutal treatment. She grew frail and small...unable to eat or drink.

Layla's spirit fought and fought until she earned her wings on March 9th, 2010 surrounded by her loving parents. Though 2-year-old Layla's life ended on that fateful day in March, her legacy has lived on and on and ON...

Her parents, Ryan and Shanna, founded the Layla Grace Children's Cancer Research Foundation in her memory- making many strides in pediatric cancer research. Visit it online at http://www.laylagrace.org and consider making a donation today in honor of Layla's birthday.

To the beautifully angelic Layla Grace - I remember the day that I first came across your fight...your bright blue eyes drew me in immediately. For such a tiny baby, Layla, you had the fight and determination that not even an adult man could have- and for this reason, you've truly converted and changed so many hearts. Today is your fourth birthday... but instead of celebrating with your Gigi and Claire, you simply are not there. I'm so sorry that our doctors and nurses and all of those who cared for you could not save you from the giant cancer. I promise you, Layla Grace, that I will continue to fight against this monster of cancer in your memory and honor so that no more little babies like you will have to die, okay? Enjoy your celebration of your birthday in Heaven - I am sure it far exceeds all of our dreams and wishes for you. Sending you my love and lots and lots of cuddles and kisses, sweetheart. I love you always.
