Braylynn Lawhorn is a little girl who is dying from cancer. Her grandfather, Sean Peterson, is suffering from ALS, and is having a hard time comprehending why his granddaughter is being forced to say good-bye after only being on this Earth for 5 short years. Their story is one that is capturing the world, and here’s why.
Ally Parker never imagined that she would have to say good-bye to both her daughter and her father at the same time. But that’s exactly the situation she is in right now. Her daughter is dying from brain cancer while her father might not make it to his next birthday. Together, they are spending their last moments near Braylynn’s hospital bed. Ally took a photo of the two together and let me tell you, it’s not what you would normally expect.
Braylyyn’s grandfather Sean may no longer be able to articulate words, but you can clearly see the pain on his face. Let me warn you that this photo will definitely pull at your heartstrings, as it is not an easy one to look at it. In fact, I’m sure that this is probably not even an easy story to tell for Ally, but this photo is one way for her to convey her unspeakable pain. Here’s why.
