Baby Dax's final farewell - January 4th 2010, 10:32 PM

So not sure if any of you teenhelpers have heard about him.. but he's a 2 1.5 year old little boy who was battling terminal cancer. His parents set up a facebook/caringbridge page and were kind enough to share the entire journey with the world.
When they found out his cancer had came back and he only had weeks left, their entire community got together and started "Decorate for Dax" They put up Christmas lights/decoratins during Halloween just so this little boy could have one more Christmas with his parents.
He finally passed away December 30th, so he did get to have one last Christmas day with his mommy and daddy.

This is the news story on his funeral etc.

And his facebook page

Yes its a sad story, but everything the community has done/still does for this family is amazing.

Ohh. Stories like that make me sad and happy and emotionally confused. I always hate it when children die, but I am so glad that they connected and took care of each other, all over the internet.

This kind of story really does give me hope. That there is still so much kindness out there.

So sad. The story is hopeful though, since the whole community would come together for the little boy. Kindness does still exist, and it's things like this that give me hope.

As sad as the story is it also has a side of love and hope. It's always amazing to see what people can do when they pull together.
