2-YO Cancer-Stricken Girl Sang to Her Mom One Day Before Dying | ‘My Heart Will Forever Be Broken’

According to her Instagram bio, Ava received a cancer diagnosis—rhabdomyosarcoma stage 4—in June 2021.

Magalli Jimenez is an extremely brave mother. On March 7, 2020, when she gave birth to Ava Skye, her second daughter, she had no idea that she would have to say goodbye to her so soon. Skye spent the first year of her life healthy and pain-free, but when she turned 13 months old, her ordeals began, per Kidspot.



 

 

According to her bio on Instagram, Jimenez received the diagnosis of Skye's cancer—rhabdomyosarcoma stage 4—in June 2021. She was terrified but had to persevere for her daughter. She continued the treatment recommended by Skye's doctor without giving up hope. A year later in June 2022, Skye was declared cancer-free. However, she relapsed again last month and has had a very difficult journey since. 



 

 

A heartwarming moment between the toddler and her mother has now won the hearts of over 26 million people after going viral on TikTok and Instagram. The mother of two, in an effort to spread awareness of her daughter's condition, has been bravely filming her young daughter's final days. The toddler was so physically weak during her last days that she had trouble even speaking. Yet, she managed to muster up the energy to sing a song to her mother, in the viral video that has touched several people. “I love you, you love me, we’re a happy family. With a great big hug and a kiss from me…won’t you say you love me too,” the precious girl sang between tired breaths.



 

 

On August 22, Jimenez posted on Instagram to let their followers know that Skye had passed. “My heart will forever be broken, it will never be the same, but I promised her that I will live for her. I know she’s proud of me for staying this strong. But im not gonna lie, I feel like I’m dying inside. Your sister and I will continue to make you proud,” she shared. “Life isn’t supposed to be like this, parents should never plan a funeral, pick a casket, one last outfit, 'the perfect plot' spot, or an urn for their child." She said that Skye is "no longer in pain, no more methadone, no more morphine, no more headaches, no more vomiting, no more shaking."

She hoped that no other parent would ever go through what she experienced. "Hug your kiddos a little harder today, even when they drive you insane," the grieving mother continued. Jimenez remarked that she would "give anything" to have Skye interrupt her as she entered the restroom. She always thought about her kid and wished she could somehow give her one last embrace.
