Bree Rowand was just an ordinary mother from Alpine, California, who wanted to take care of her baby. But one day, her baby, named Kylie, was diagnosed with stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma, a form of cancer. After a year, Kylie passed away.
I can understand the situation she went through. At the same time, Bree got the inspiration to become a brave fighter when she saw the trailer for the upcoming film Secret in Their Eyes, in which Julia Roberts' character -- who is a detective -- sees her own daughter's dead body in a dumpster.
Bree and her husband still keep Kylie in their hearts and memories.
Kylie battled her sickness for fourteen months.
Bree got the motivation from the trailer for this movie. The film is about bringing justice to the untimely death of the mother's daughter.
During Kylie's 14-month battle, a Facebook page called Prayers for Kylie -- God's Little Warrior was created for other people to show their support.
Over 200,000 people joined the community and the family received a lot of donations and supportive comments.
Even if Kylie is now gone, the family has since used the 200,000 strong Facebook community to help other families having the same situation.
Bree will never give up, and she is determined to bring justice and "murder" the disease that killed Kylie.
In just six months, about $400,000 has already been raised to help other families pay for the treatment of their sick children.
Bree hopes that Kylie's death won't be for naught, and positive will happen to everyone.
Bree and her husband are expecting a baby boy in December, and they plan to name him Lucas Kyler.
