Today marks the 5th anniversary of Lily’s passing. Lily taught everyone about life, love, friendship and family. She was incredibly courageous and faced her battle head on, always thinking of and putting others first and was a true inspiration to her family and those that were close to her. Lily will always be remembered. The Live for Lily Foundation will carry on Lily’s legacy and continue to do what we can to raise money and awareness into fighting childhood cancer so other brave little children like Lily have the best chance to beat their disease. #LiveforLily ...
