Sadly on the 25th September 2018 her family was informed that Lilly's cancer was terminal and out of the blue she was given only days to live. She lost use of her right side with the tumours still growing and causing her endless amounts of pain.
Lara and Rhys (Lilly's parents) made the following sad announcement on 'Lilly's Fight For Life' FB page on 9th October 2018:
We are so sorry to tell you all that Lilly has now lost her battle. She fought so hard, she went at 4:35 and was pronounced gone at 4:44. She went 13 days longer than what they said she would which was her birth-date, and seemed to be the number always. This is the hardest thing as parents we’ve ever had to do; we held her, told her we loved her and she left peacefully. Lilly will never be forgotten, I always said ‘It’s just for now, it’s not forever’. Proudest parents on this planet.
Our heart truly breaks for this beautiful family. We only wish we were able to work miracles.
PREVIOUS MESSAGE FROM LILLY'S MUM:
I just want to say a massive thank you to the ladies at My Shining Star! They have given me and my family funding enabling us to buy a new vehicle to continue taking Lilly to her much needed appointments. We’ve also been able to get a cooker and a washing machine. Without these ladies I would have been lost! They are simply amazing. My Lilly was diagnosed with liver cancer back in October; she has had 65% of her liver removed and having chemotherapy, so with everything still being quite new it’s been a real struggle. Lilly’s future is very daunting and a scary time, for the family and Lilly. We just want to thank you again for making this time that little bit easier.
