CADENCE!! You are a walking miracle beautiful girl!! A VICTORIOUS MIRACLE!!

I'm not a facebooger, but I was able to see her profile photo. She is such a lovely girl with an inner spirit of gentleness that comes shining through.

Standing ovation going on over here for this gentle, but fiercely strong, Warrior!clap

Lots of love!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
