My Story

Marissa was the happiest baby ever. She was always smiling. She liked to play, she loved the water, she liked to swing and play in her balls. I loved to be loved on and to give love. Just a little after her first birthday she started getting sick, and we found out she had brain cancer, Medulloblastoma on Aug. 5. She fought as hard as she could and we are proud of her. On Sept. 6 she went to be with the Lord. We miss her so much. And we can't wait till we get to be with her again.
