Mother's One-Year-Old Child Died Due To Cancer, Now She Is Saving Thousands Of Lives

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.
