Why 1 Mom Decided to Share Her 5-Year-Old Daughter’s Last Moments to Raise Cancer Awareness

Two years ago, Casey and Ben Daggett found out that their daughter Zoey had a rare brain tumorknown as Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) – that doctors were unable to operate on. In that moment, they came to the devastating conclusion that their daughter wouldn’t have much longer to live. Tragically, Zoey passed away on July 4 at just 5 years old. And her parents shared a photo on Facebook of her final moments in the hopes of spreading cancer awareness.

Casey told POPSUGAR that Susan, one of Zoey’s nurses, offered to capture the family’s last few hours together. The day after Zoey passed away, the grieving mom posted the picture with the following caption:

“Zoey is going to be shared with the world. Her love and light have been abundant and we will continue to pay it forward and share love and light with the world.”

While Casey and Ben are understandably heartbroken, they’re hoping that their family tragedy can help other parents whose children have DIPG.

“We have always tried to help others when we can’t help ourselves.”

“I shared the photo because not a lot of people know what DIPG does to children,” she said. “And there is no real funding at all for this type of cancer. We wanted to continue Zoey’s sharing of love and happiness and I think that what has happened with this photo and how it has gone viral is the first step to bringing awareness to DIPG and spreading love.”

On July 4 at 4:17 p.m., Zoey passed away surrounded by friends and family. Her last few days were “filled with stories, music, and movies,” according to her mom.

In hindsight, Casey is happy she had Susan take the picture, as it was the last photo they would have together as a family.

“We thought it was a beautiful photo that showed our love for Zoey and even when we knew she was going to pass, it was just a beautiful photo to us,” said Casey. “We have always tried to help others when we can’t help ourselves.”

Simona Halep printre cei mai importanți români din ultimul secol.

Published

on

În ziua în care a primit de la WTA confirmarea oficială că a început săptămâna cu numărul 46 ca lider mondial, urcând pe locul 11 all-time privind permanența pe primul loc în lume, performera din Constanța a fost omagiată într-un alt cadru decât terenul de tenis. Cea mai valoroasă sportivă a României s-a lăsat fotografiată, luni după-amiază, pentru un proiect privat, “100 de chipuri românești”.

„100 de chipuri românești”

Împinsă de la spate de competițiile din finalul anului, care vor culmina cu Turneul Campioanelor (Singapore, 21-28 octombrie), „Simo” a sărit peste antrenamentul de luni după-amiază, ca să fie prezentă la o ședință foto stabilită din timp. Totul s-a întâmplat, vreme de 45 de minute, în hotelul Athénée Palace Hilton Bucharest, intrat, din 2005, în patrimoniul Ana Hotels, proprietatea fostului rapidist George Copos. Studioul improvizat l-a constituit un separeu din incinta Athénée Palace, în plină forfotă determinată de mișcările de du-te – vino ale delegațiilor străine cazate, cu prilejul Forumului de Afaceri al Inițiativei celor 3 Mări.

Stabilimentul din buricul Bucureștiului a intrat în folclorul acestor zile după ce Liviu Dragnea, liderul partidului de guvernământ și președintele Camerei Deputaților, a declarat, fără să ofere vreo probă în acest sens, că a adăpostit patru „asasini” veniți în București cu scopul să-l lichideze. Potrivit inițiatorilor proiectului „100 de chipuri românești”, securitatea în zonă a fost sporită, inclusiv pe durata ședinței foto a Simonei, întrucât în alte saloane ale hotelului au avut loc evenimente cu profil economic organizate de Banca Mondială.

„Umbra” Teo Cercel: i-a plătit parcarea

Simona n-a venit singură la hotel, ci însoțită de preparatorul fizic Teo Cercel, cel care joacă rol și de antrenor, în această perioadă a sezonului. Rămas fără Andrei Pavel și colaborând de la distanță cu australianul Darren Cahill, liderul WTA nu se desparte nicăieri de Cercel, care îi va fi alături și în turneul asiatic, urmând să ocupe în lojă locul antrenorului. De altfel, Teo, care a ieșit din hotel mânuind o rachetă de tenis, are grijă de tot ce mișcă în jurul Simonei.

I-a plătit inclusiv parcarea, înainte să se despartă de campioană pentru scurt timp, suindu-se într-un alt automobil. În schimb, jucătoarea s-a urcat la volanul Mercedesului său și a demarat într-un București paralizat de trafic, la ora respectivă, 17.15. Campioana de la Roland Garros, îmbrăcată din cap până-n picioare de la Nike, cu un tricou imprimat cu ‘Paris’ – orașul inimii sale, a refuzat orice discuție cu presa, însă fanilor le-a acordat pe îndelete autografe.

Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding’s Christmas Rom-Com Sounds Like the New Love Actually.

Published

on

 

It’s still September, but we’re already feeling the holiday cheer thanks to Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding. The two have signed on to star in a Christmas-themed romance, Last Christmas. The film, set in London, will be directed by Paul Feig, whose previous work includes Bridesmaids, The Heat, Ghostbusters, and most recently Golding’s A Simple Favor. Other producers who will have a hand in the film are Jessie Henderson, David Livingstone, and Emma Thompson, the latter of whom also wrote the screenplay with the help of Bryony Kimmings.

Clarke is known for playing the beloved Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, but now that the show is ending, it makes sense that she’s looking to take on other projects. She recently portrayed Han Solo’s childhood friend Qi’ra in Solo: A Star Wars Story, and it looks like she’ll be expanding her acting repertoire with Last Christmas.

Golding is also doing rather well with breaking into the Hollywood scene. He’s coming off a successful performance as Nick Young in Crazy Rich Asians, which was very well received. Golding also worked with Feig in the recent mystery thriller A Simple Favor as the character Sean Townsend.

Although there aren’t many details about the actual movie quite yet, we’re already wondering if it’ll be a little Love Actually-esque. It is a romance film that takes place in London around Christmas time, after all. And with Thompson, who played Karen in the first Love Actually film, as a screenwriter for the upcoming movie, there’s sure to be a few similarities here and there. For now, we’re just going to squeal in excitement over getting to see Clarke and Golding share the big screen together.
