DETROIT (WWJ) – Well-wishes from around the world for a little Trenton girl, who suffers from an incurable brain disease. Family friend Michelle Yerigian is collecting cards for 7-year old Kathleen Edward, who is now suffering from pneumonia.
Yerigian says that she has seen cards coming in from all over the world: “It’s really phenomenal how many people’s lives this little girl has touched.”
“She’s a miracle, she’s just the most beautiful little girl, who always has a smile no matter how bad the day is. She never shows her frustration … very rarely,” says Yerigian.
Yerigian says little Kathleen Edward has been through a lot. She suffers from the same incurable brain disease, which claimed the lives of her mother and grandfather.
“We have to believe in a miracle for her, and the more cards we get for her, I think it would just encourage her more for her spirit,” says Yerigian.
The girl’s story first came to light after a neighbor was hauled into court for taunting and harassing the Edward family. The woman pleaded guilty and was forced to move out of the neighborhood.
