*** Laney Update ***
Today we were told the worst news of our lives. Laney has 70% cancer cells in her blood. If they would treat the cancer the virus that she has would kill her. And if they treat the virus the cancer will kill her.
They gave her a couple days to a couple weeks to live.
My heart is breaking. I sit here looking at her face trying to remember every contour of it, I breath deeply ...against her skin trying to always remember her smell. Every time she speaks I try to listen for the different way she says certain words so that I never forget. I keep putting my lips against her warm skin because I never want to forget how that feels. I'm devastated and I'm hoping that I will wake up from this nightmare.
We told Laney and she said she wanted to be the one to tell Kylee and Jacob. She told Jacob that when she's gone he is to be a good big brother to Kylee. And she thanked Kylee for being a great sister and her best friend. They all cried in each other's arms. I have never felt this type of pain in my life.
We will be taking her home on hospice tomorrow and will be trying to let her have as much fun as she can handle. We will watch her blow out her eighth birthday candels knowing that she won't have a ninth. We will also ask Santa to come early this year because Laney has been such a good girl. Please pray for Laney and our family. Please pray for a miracle. We will be spending every second with her till God decides he needs another beautiful angel up in heaven.

My heart breaks right now. Our little angel on earth earned her pink glittery angel wings in heaven. She took her last breath at home in her bed at 3:10 surrounded by all her family and friends. I miss her so much already.
Visit Delaney's facebook page for daily updates by her family.
On Monday the 28th of May the lives of Jennifer Capone-Brown and Jeremiah Brown turned upside down when they learned that their middle child, 7 year old Delaney was diagnosed with AML Leukemia.
Delaney is an amazing little girl. She loves to dance and sing. Her favorite singer is Taylor Swift. She is involved with girl scouts. She is a fun and loving girl that cares about everyone. Even when she is feeling down and out, she is trying to make the other children in the hospital smile and feel better. Her smile is contagious and her laughter is infectious. Her faith in God is strong and keeps her going.
She resides in Pennsylvania with her parents and brother and sister. She is currently being treated at Hershey Hospital where she is receiving chemotherapy and is waiting for a bone marrow transplant.
Delaney has a long and hard road ahead of her but with the prayers from family, friends, and strangers and the help of great medical staff she has a whole team behind her to help battle leukemia.
Go Team Laney!
Update: Laney received her transplant Sept. 19th. She will be getting her cells from an umbilical cord of a little girl born in Virginia on Nov. 10, 2009. Thank you to the family.
