One-year-old girl marries own father days before passing away
Poppy’s mom Sammi wrote on her Facebook page: “Today I watched our beautiful baby grow her angel wings, as much as it hurt me to know I will never watch my baby grow, laugh, smile again, she is at peace now, no more pain and suffering. She fought the biggest battle and gave us a lifetime of happy memories in her short life which will stay with me for forever.”
The couple are aiming to raise enough to build a retreat in her memory to help other families of sick children
Sami and Andy shared their daughter’s story on social media to raise awareness and save other lives and more than 30,000 people responded.
Now, they are determined to raise enough money to build a retreat in Poppy-Mai’s memory to help other families with sick children.
