Baby Sativa's battle ends

7 comments


Two-year-old Sativa Eagle passed away this morning after a long battle with cancer.


Mother Sheree Roose posted her final farewell on the Please help Baby Sativa & her Family fight Leukemia Facebook page.


"Sativa Ann Eagle....you are free my baby. Tiva passed away between me and my mum at 5:45 this morning. always in my heart and never forgotten. your legacy will live on my baby. i miss you so so much."


Sativa, a twin, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) on January 5, 2011.


Since then she has had numerous rounds of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant.


She seemed to be recovering until three days before the girls' second birthday when the family was told the cancer was coming back at an alarming rate.


A second, desperate atte<inline type="photogallery" id="13187" align="outside" embed="no" />mpt at more bone marrow, also proved futile.


With a prognosis of only weeks to live, they took her home to die.
