 Tragic Toddler Has Parents Diagnosed With Terminal Cancer

18-month-old Sadie Bond is facing life without both parents after the latter were diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Her dad Nathan has been diagnosed with stage 3 colorectal cancer and has a 60% chance of survival for five years; while her mum Elisa has incurable breast cancer and has a 16% survival chance for 5 years.


"I wanted to grow old with my husband and care for our daughter," Elisa, a real estate agent told NY Daily News. "Now I'm just hoping for a miracle."

Elisa and Nathan have taken medical leave and are undergoing chemotherapy that has left them nauseous throughout the day. Their friends have created a website to help them manage living expenses and have collected $25,000 so far. Users can also donate at friendsofnathanandelisa.blogspot.com
