Ellie was diagnosed with this rare form of cancer in 2008. Though she underwent various rounds of Chemo but the tumor returned. Her family and friends have been praying for her wellness, but she sadly passed away on Wednesday afternoon.On Wednesday morning, when she was battling between life and death her blog read- Ellie is still breathing…She is so slowly leaving us. This is breaking me to shreds, I have been ripped apart, this has tested my faith slowly, to watch your child die before your eyes- is too much for a mother- just too much. God I pray…Please let her fly.Ellie passed around five hours after this post on her blog. Her funeral will take place at Calvary Church North Carolina on June 26th at 11 am. The wake will also happen at the same place on June 25th at 6 pm.Hours after her death there was another post on her blog that read- Thankfully our church is ample in seating! I have no idea how to make this happen in our ‘Ellie’ fashion. But we do our best with music, photos, video, flowers, ceremony…To celebrate her life! Please wear pink to funeral or pastels ;) Ellie’s favorite colors!
