DAISY LOVE'S STORY // PART 1
Daisy Love was born to a family who adored her. She grew up in the beautiful beach city of Carpinteria and from her earliest days she loved Jesus. Her life was filled with laughter and wacky costumes, play dates with friends and constant discovery. When asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, Daisy would say, "I'm leaning toward astronaut, but maybe warrior for the Lord!"
In September of 2009, during her first month of kindergarten, Daisy fell down on the playground. For an active, bouncy 5 year-old, the fall wasn't unusual... but Daisy's response was. Instead of resuming play, she sat limply and told the school staff: "I need to go the hospital." When her parents arrived at the school, they agreed, and rushed her to a hospital in Santa Barbara to check for possible internal injuries. The doctors delivered news far worse than any playground accident:
Daisy has cancer.
