“She was diagnosed shortly after her second birthday, and was told she was out of options shortly before her fifth.”
A week before Lila May Schow turned five, her parents found out she was seriously ill.
Just days after from what would be her last birthday, Ryan Schow and Heidi Hall were told by doctors that the cancer that has ravaged their daughter’s body for almost three years would soon end her life.
Lila May suffers from Neuroblastoma, one of the most common cancers found in children. She was diagnosed shortly after her second birthday, and was told she was out of options shortly before her fifth.
For her fifth birthday, her parents knew that it needed to be special. And so they threw the party of a lifetime for their daughter.
Ryan and Heidi posted about the birthday party online, starting a Facebook group that caught the attention of their entire community in their Oregon hometown.
