A 5-year-old girl with Down syndrome lost her mom to ovarian cystic fibrosis in November, according to a Facebook post from her mother.
The post, which has since been shared more than 1.5 million times, shows that the girl is no longer able to see, hear or hear sounds of her mother’s voice.
Her mother, who goes by the name of Jodi Penney, wrote that her daughter had been having trouble breathing due to her condition.
She wrote that she and her husband had been in the hospital for over a month, and that their daughter has been in constant pain since the surgery.
Jodi’s mother, Jodi Hensley, said she was devastated by the news.
She said she is grateful for the outpouring of support, which included donations and money for a new car.
