We didn’t have the heart to tell her why it was her last. Little Mary had been fighting cancer for the past few years, and we had all been supporting her every step of the way. But as her treatments drew to a close, it was clear that the cancer had won.
Little Mary was determined to make the most of her last days. She had a special bell that she would ring every time she completed a treatment, and that day was no exception. She rang the bell with a smile on her face, oblivious to the fact that this was her last treatment.
We all watched as Little Mary celebrated with her family, and it was hard not to be happy for her. But at the same time, we all knew that her days were numbered. We just didn’t have the heart to tell her why this was her last.
Little Mary passed away a few weeks later. We all mourned her passing, but we also celebrated her courage and strength. She had faced her cancer with bravery and optimism, and she was an inspiration to us all. We will never forget her, and we will always remember her last bell-ringing ceremony.
