Cancer. Every parent fears hearing this word, especially when it comes to their children. This is a reality that Britney Haynes, the former “Big Brother” competitor and star, has had to come to terms with after her 2-month-old daughter was diagnosed with this horrible disease.
Haynes shared the heart wrenching news via Facebook saying: “On September 1st, we were among the daily 720 sets of parents to be absolutely devastated with a Childhood Cancer diagnosis. September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness month. Please take the time to pray for all these children, our sweet baby included. We appreciate each and every one.”
Haynes’ daughter,Tilly Elizabeth, was born on July 13. After her birth Haynes tweeted: “My life changed on July 13th and will never be the same! My sweet little girl is happy, healthy, and amazing. Tilly Elizabeth; 8lbs 3oz!”
Haynes more recently took to Twitter to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers for their little girl.
