Bovenstaande foto van het 4-jarig meisje Jessica Whelan ging viral. Haar vader maakte deze om te laten zien hoe het voelt om je dochter pijn te zien lijden.
“This is the hardest photograph I have ever made,” vertelde hij.
“A few days ago she was given what is most likely a few weeks to live. This was taken at a moment where we as parents could offer no comfort – Jessica pushing us away as she rode out her searing pain in solitude.”
Vandaag verscheen op Facebook dat het meisje is overleden. Vader Andy schreef het volgende:
“No longer does she suffer, no longer does she feel the pain of the physical constraints of her body.
“Now my princess has grown her angel wings and has gone up to play with her friends and loved ones. She will now watch down over her little brother and ourselves until one day we are reunited again.
“Last night she finally allowed me to hold her in my arms and we had a big cuddle as I told her how much I loved her.
“I told her again that it was okay for her to close her eyes and go to sleep and I kissed her forehead and her lips numerous times.
“It seems like this is what she needed to finally allow her to find comfort in her passing as within eight hours of this cuddle she finally took her final breath.
“She was a daddy’s girl from the start and even right up to the end.
“I feel like a massive part of me has just been torn away but I am so glad that I could give her that comfort in her final hours. She passed peacefully and calmly with not even a murmur.”
