A father shared on Facebook a heartbreaking photo of his son who was comforting his 4-year-old little sister who was dying of cancer. Addy Sooter died on June 3rd after fighting DIPG for less than 8 months. Along with the picture, Matt Sooter wrote the following message:
"A little boy should not have to say goodbye to his partner in crime, his play mate, his best friend, his little sister. This isn’t how it’s supposed to be. But this is the broken world we live in. Addy’s symptoms have progressed rapidly over the past day and a half. Yesterday she woke up as her spunky playful self. While we still see short instances of our girl she can no longer eat or swallow without difficulty and she’s sleeping most of the time now and we’ve admitted her into inpatient care. Most likely she doesn’t have much time left. For our family and close friends if you feel you need to tell her goodbye we recommend you contact us and do so soon. Pray for Jackson. He doesn’t want to leave her side and we won’t make him. Pray for us. That we have the right words and can make the necessary arrangements in time.
Always remember: God is in this situation, He’s up to something, and He’s up to something GOOD."
