A 5-year-old girl from Oregon has brought everyone into tears because of her tough battle with terminal cancer.
Lila May Schow was only 2 years of age when she was diagnosed with the 4th stage of neuroblastoma cancer. With this type of cancer, malignant cells are forming in certain types of her nerve tissue.
It was truly a tough battle for Lila May as she had over nine surgeries and grueling treatments during her 3-year-long battle with cancer.
“She’s been fighting ever since,” Lila’s father said. “It’s been 3 years, well over nine surgeries…numerous chemo-therapies.” he added.
Due to their little girl’s condition, Lila’s parents decided to through her the best birthday celebration since they know that it would be her last birthday celebration.
Lila’s mother then took to social media to seek help from their friends and families to threw a celebration for Lila May’s last birthday. They were left dumbfounded when they realized how massive the celebration is. Help came pouring from different people whether they knew personally or even those whom they’ve never seen before.
“We had an incredible outpouring in the community and pretty much in all over the state,” said Schow
The princess-themed party was then thrown with over 600 attendees. Lila May arrived at the venue channeling her inner Cinderella.
The Schow family didn’t spend a fortune for everything was donated from the venue, to the personalized Cinderella outfit and even down to the horse that was donated just so Lila May could feel like a real princess even for a day.
Everyone thought that it would be just a birthday celebration, but Lila’s parents knew that they will no longer get to experience a lot of occasions with their daughter and so they turned the party into a lot of celebrations.
“We’re not going to get the prom dance or daddy-daughter dance,” said Schow.
Aside from birthday celebration, the party also turned into a mini graduation and a prom night where Lila experienced the daddy-daughter dance.
“You hear so much about terrible things happening,” said Schow. “This is one of those instances that people all come together for the right the reasons.”
The highlight of the party was when Lila’s father knelt down and proposed to her to which she gladly said yes. Despite her short life, Lila was able to experience a lot of things even a mini wedding.
when asked about her favorite part of the party, everyone was in tears. “She said she really liked all the princesses and she said ‘When my daddy cried b/c he was so happy,” said Schow. “We did a father/daughter dance and I couldn’t contain myself.”
A few weeks after the party, Lila’s body became weak and soon enough she lost her battle with cancer.
The whole Oregon grieved with the Schow family and people even raised awareness about the terminal cancer.

There’s nothing impossible in the wondrous salvific love of the Lord… The prodigal son is finally at home! 😭 God speed! 😇🙏” Gonzalez wrote.
