Mother: “Here’s why I’m sharing my daughter’s last moments on Facebook”

5-year-old Zoey Catherine Daggett was a child who loved to play, just like any other girl her age.

But two years ago, Zoey sadly passed away after a two year battle with cancer.

Her parents are mourning their beloved daughter, and received support from all over the world — after spreading photos of her last moments on earth on Facebook.

Zoey was only three years old when she was diagnosed with cancer.

She grew up in a loving family and before the cancer hit, she was full of energy and always in motion, just like so many other children. She was sweet, playful, and happy.


But one day in July 2016, everything changed. The little girl from Fairport, New York, fell while playing in the park. Her parents Caseby and Ben took her to the doctor because their daughter limped. They expected a fractured ankle at worst, but the doctor couldn’t find anything on the X-ray.

A couple of weeks later, she lost power in both hands, according to CBS8.

Her parents began to get seriously worried and realized something was wrong with Zoey, so they took her straight to the hospital. And what the doctors found on their daughter was a shock to everyone.

When they arrived, they heard something they will never forget, a message they will carry in their souls forever. The doctor told them that their beloved little daughter, so full of life and love, had DIPG — a rare and aggressive brain tumor.

Unfortunately, the survival rate for DIPG remains very low. At this time there is no cure for this tumor. Children are giving 6-18 months from diagnosis to live; typically.

”We didn’t know what to do, where to go. We were told it’s pretty much a death sentence,” mother Casey told Daily Mail.
