Lily's story (as retrieved from www.supportforlily.com/lilys-story/ ),

Lily Kate is a brave, beautiful girl whose smile lights up a room. She brings joy and laughter everywhere she goes. She’ll spend hours in imaginative play with her friends. She is the kid who climbs to the top of the jungle gym at the park with no fear. Lily and her sisters are active in the local homeschool community, as well as dance and drama classes.

At the end of March 2014, 4-year-old Lily was diagnosed with Leukemia, specifically ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia). She began chemotherapy at the beginning of April. The treatment for leukemia is a long process that will be ongoing for several years, but we have every reason to be hopeful as the treatment is very often effective.

The community has rallied around Lily’s family to help ease the expenses of traveling back and forth between Melbourne and Orlando. Caring people have brought food, provided childcare for Lily’s sisters, and helped in many other wonderful ways both seen and unseen.

lyrics

Sweet brave lily
Stranger out at sea
Locked up in a pirate ship
Crocodiles are circling ‘round
Waves are crashing up and down
But Lily, she ain’t scared a bit

Every trip around the sun
She is laughing just for fun
Nobody’s got it like the girl I’m singing for
Brave, strong Lily, she’s the one

Sweet brave Lily
Singing to the stars
Nothing’s gonna bring her down
Open up your window dear
Never worry, never fear
Shout it out and sing it with me now

Every trip around the sun
She is laughing just for fun
Nobody’s got it like the girl I’m singing for
Brave, strong Lily, she’s is the one

Dancin, and laughin, and singin all day
Not a care in the world
Dancin, and laughin, and singin away
Lily, she is our girl

Every trip around the sun
She is laughing just for fun
Nobody’s got it like the girl I’m singing for
Brave, strong, Lily she’s the one
Coolest, cutest, Lily she’s the one

Nobody’s got it like the girl I’m singing for
Brave, strong, Lily you’re the one
