"Now my princess has grown her angel wings and has gone up to play"

It was just a few weeks ago we shared with you the story of British photographer Andy Whelan and his daughter Jessica.

Jessica was suffering from stage four Neuroblastoma, an aggressive cancer of the nervous system, when Andy captured a heartbreakingly real picture of his daughter lying in agony with a tube running from her nose and veins showing through her skin, to remind everyone of the horror that is childhood cancer.

Sadly, Jessica’s battle has ended as she passed away from cancer just 3 weeks after he posted the picture.

The young girl, who’s picture became the ‘childhood face of cancer’ in a picture taken by her father that went viral, has passed away.

Can we do more?
