Leah was a beautiful angel known for always saying “My Heart is Happy” and inspiring others to be happy. Her favorite color was purple and she loved Nemo, Dora, and Sponge Bob. She loved to read, play board games, and color, always staying within the lines and picking bold, beautiful colors.
Leah was always a perfectly healthy child until the age of 4, when to our surprise, she was diagnosed with a diffused pontine brain stem glioma. Leah bravely received radiation treatments at C.S. Mott’s Children’s Hospital at the University of Michigan along with homeopathic medicines, rife therapy and nutrional supplements. She rarely cried or complained but greeted everyone with her open-mouthed smile touching everyone’s heart she came in contact with. At the age of 5, 1 year and 10 days later, she received her wings and left a permanent mark in our hearts. To have known Leah was to love her and we have all been blessed by having her in our lives. If love alone could have saved her, she never would have died.
