Rachel is a wonderful little spirit. For a little girl to feel this way is amazing in itself but for her to go that extra mile and raise money by using her own birthday to get it instead of gifts is exceptional.

My thoughts and prayers go out to her family! Please be proud and remember all the good things about her.

This is such a bittersweet story.

The world would be a better place if we had more selfless people like Rachel. We can all learn a lesson from this 9 year old child.

Thoughts and prayers to the family.
