Mom Shares Daughter’s Final Moments Here’s Her Reason

After suffering an incurable tumor, she’s finally no more feeling discomfort.

One can hardly imagine what it’s like to lose a child because parents should never be burying their children. And we all know that the story behind their deaths will always break our hearts. Still, many parents choose to let the story of their children be shared with the world.

And that’s what Zoey’s mom did – she made sure the world knew she was the happiest girl in the world.

Zoey Chatherine Dagget was 5 years old when she passed away.

Zoey was born healthy, but at just three years old, the doctors diagnosed her with a rare type of childhood cancer. The energetic girl was soon making multiple trips to the hospital and spending more time there than playing with her peers at school.

Zoey’s parents, Casey and Benjamin, are based in Fairport, New York. She took chemotherapies sessions and had MRIs. But Zoey wasn’t able to play with her friends as she kept losing her balance and eventually collapsed while playing at the park.

A proper scan revealed that she had DIPG, Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, a rare brain tumor that commonly affects children.

Children that are afflicted have less than one year and only 2% of them survive 5 years after diagnosis. This tumor grows within a critical structure of the brain, which is the brain stem, and is surgically impossible to remove. In conclusion, DIPG has no cure.

Her parents decided to not spare a single day from sharing about their daughter to the world.

The family tried contacting everyone for a solution, but they were rejected many times. Until a professor from Cologne, Germany, was offering an immunotherapy treatment trial and the family found out about it.

It initially worked and Zoey who used to not be able to move one side of her body, went back to “running fully with no side effects.”

Zoey passed away in July, 2018. Just a year after the tumor came back and the initial procedure doesn’t work on her anymore. Other methods brought side effects, including making her nauseous.

The family decided to hold a funeral and made it so the whole world and social media will then help her remember her.

“Zoey is going to be shared with the world. Her love and light have been abundant and we will continue to pay it forward and share love and light with the world.”
