A Virginia mom is hoping to raise awareness of pediatric cancer by sharing a tearful video of herself reading a letter she wrote to her recently deceased daughter.
Kate Rhoades should have started kindergarten this week.
“There is a child missing,” Lindsay Rhoades, Kate’s mother, told ABC News.
Kate died earlier this year of acute lymphoblastic leukemia. For Kate, and for Lindsay, there is no first day of school.
Please watch and share this very touching and powerful expression of a mother’s love for her daughter. An hour after 4-year-old Kate Rhoades passed away from cancer her mom Lindsay sat in her bed and wrote this very poignant letter. Lindsay read the letter at Kate’s memorial service which was standing room only. In an effort to share Kate’s story with even more people, she agreed to read the letter again from the same spot that she wrote it a few short weeks ago. Thank you to Lindsay White Rhoades and her husband Mike for allowing us this opportunity to honor Kate and continue her legacy.
