Sweet 7 year old, Daisy Xiong, was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) on September 25th 2019.
DIPG is a type of tumor that starts in the brain stem (the part of the brain just above the back of the neck and connected to the spine). The brain stem controls breathing, heart rate and the nerves and muscles that help us see, hear, walk, talk and eat. Because of the location of the tumor, doctors are not able to perform any biopsies or surgeries to remove the tumor.
As Daisy continues to fight, we need to fight along with her. Light this candle, as a way to show Daisy and her family that they are not in this fight alone. That Daisy’s light still shines bright, with all of us.
The design for this candle was inspired by Daisy’s love of pink, her dreams of traveling to Paris to see the Eiffel Tower and of course her sweet pup, Peanut.
Daisy loves dancing more than anything. She loves singing. She loves riding her bike. She looks up to her older sister and brother for guidance and loves her family very much. She has the biggest personality and sense of humor. She is the kind of kid that leaves an imprint on everyone she meets.
Proceeds will be donated to Daisy’s GoFundMe - covering medical expenses and to help provide Daisy with the best life possible, as Lang and Donna will both be taking time off work to spend with her as she is home with hospice care. Even if you are not able to donate money, a share and a prayer goes a long way.
Thank you for your time, donation, prayer, and support. Together we will stand and fight with Daisy.
THIS IS A PRE-ORDER: Daisy’s candle will ship out beginning January 4th.
