Family is extremely important in our life because no matter what happens these are the people who will always support us. Unfortunately, there was a tragic event in the life of Ryan and Heidi Schow from Oregon. Their beloved daughter Lila was diagnosed with terminal cancer. The 5-year-old girl has been desperately struggling with this dreadful illness for three years but nothing has helped. The girl has recently had a birthday, most likely her last one, and her parents gave a very special party...

Doctors say that the girl is too weak to continue chemotherapy, and since the cancer cannot be defeated, she will live till Thanksgiving at best.

To make their daughter's last birthday unforgettable, her parents created a special Facebook community where they told her story.

Ryan and Heidi were helped by local entrepreneurs, volunteers and their community of Hood River, Oregon.
