It's incredibly devastating to have a child with a life-threatening illness. So sadly, this is reality for Cathy Reiner of Western New York, whose daughter, Sammi, has been living with a critical medical condition for nearly two decades.
"She never let Cystic Fibrosis dictate her life," says Cathy.
Sammi entered into Hospice care earlier this month, and doctors revealed the devastating news: end stage Cystic Fibrosis.
The family created a GoFundMe expressing their emotions:
Yesterday my baby sister was admitted into hospice care. She has signed a DNR. This is the last thing any of us wanted. My mom is trying to hold things together. I am asking for your help to give my beautiful baby sister the send off she deserves.
Sammi recently told her mom, "Mommy, I'm not giving up. I'm fighting until the end."
