Leukemia - @210latinafitness

“On April 9, 2014 my beloved six year old son Elijah Lee lost his battle to A.M.L. (Acute Myeloid Leukemia) and was laid to rest. He fought so hard, we watched him grow weak and fragile. All the while he did it with a graceful smile on his face. As a mother you never imagine to bury your child, his absence has left a silent place in my life and a void in my heart. God blessed me with two beautiful gals, Zoey & Raelynn to push through the days. Zoey is a high functioning autistic child with the heart of gold and a smile like her brother. Life on a daily basis can be a struggle, but having been taught such a valuable lesson from my sons death has opened my eyes in unexplainable ways. I stand for all the grieving mothers who think they can’t see tomorrow, for the mothers who struggle to communicate with their child in the Autism world. I stand for my children. I am a mother. I am a woman. I am a warrior. I am Raquel Littrell.” @210latinafitness
