Lately, all I wanna watch is feel-good Christmas movies and yesterday was no different. In search of an easy one, I stumbled upon “The Heart of Christmas”, which caught my attention by the name, and is based on a true story but I didn’t have any idea kind of story. As I was watching, I fully understood what the parents went through, all their struggles. The movie is also uplifting with its message. I truly recommend.
I felt so compelled with the story that this morning, I searched the real parents and found the mother’s Facebook, so I wrote her a message. Later today, she replied. Here it is her reply in full for you all.

Oh thank you so much for your sweet message, Mariana. How I love hearing from survivors. You have walked in our shoes and know how hard the battle against leukemia is. I am so thankful for your success and your health and happiness in life. I miss Dax everyday and his memory is always with me; he changed my life forever. It’s amazing to see the impact Dax’s short life has brought to so many people. Each day it seems like I get a message like yours about how Dax has inspired someone. Dax has brought me more joy than I can begin to ever express. I’m so appreciative of all the people who follow me and share Dax’s story. I thank you again for your message it made me happy to read.
Again, thank you so much for your kind words; remember the preciousness of your loved ones and “Cherish Every Moment”.
