In Memory of...

Amelia Joy Mount

"Dear God, please take my cancer away"

Amelia Joy Mount, lovingly known as Millie, was just 2.5 years old when she was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma. 

Millie is the baby of nine siblings. Her favorite times were at home with her family on our farm. She enjoyed being outside, working with daddy in the tractor, visiting the animals, or playing on her swing in the yard.  You would always find her wearing her green John Deere cowboy boots no matter her outfit. Her favorite food was “chicken-beef,” meaning pot roast that she was sure was chicken.  She had a great sense of humor and often laughed at her jokes. She had a love for fishing and was gifted a professional fishing trip in the final days of her life. At the end of each day, you would find her in mama’s rocking chair, just waiting to be rocked to sleep. We are so grateful for each moment we had together.  

Millie loved her friends from the hospital. Late at night, she often prayed, “Dear God, please take my cancer away.” She would then pray for each friend that had cancer to be healed. She even prayed for her nurse’s cancer to be gone. We tried to explain the nurses didn’t have cancer, but she replied, “Then why are they here?”  She figured anyone at the hospital must be sick. 

Millie fought hard for a year before opening her eyes in heaven on July 8, 2020. Her journey has been shared around the world on her Facebook prayer page, “Millie’s Miracle.” As a family, our greatest hope is that we can point others to Jesus as they remember our sweet girl, who we will see again in heaven.  

We still believe in Millie’s Miracle – Hebrews 11:1 🦋💖

Lennon Kash Black

Lennon Kash Black said this every time in the hospital fighting for her life, and many people will never forget her seven short words. Lennon lived four years but is changing the face of childhood cancer. Lennon flew to Jesus on September 25th, 2020. Now she is in heaven, and her legacy is fighting for other children in a battle with childhood cancer.

Editor’s note:

Lennon stood up to cancer and never backed down up to the end of her life. She taught us how to live and die.

“Everybody loves Lennon. I’m brave and strong.”

If you have a child that lost their life due to childhood cancer, ages zero to nineteen years old; this page is for you to have a picture and bio of your precious loved one. Why? After meeting with mothers that had lost their child to cancer, they had a common bond. They did not want people to forget their child.  We promised to create a Memorial Page on Book for Hope’s website. Book for Hope has dedicated this page to all the precious children that lost their lives to cancer. Book for Hope will never forget you! Please submit an email to gaylonhayden@att.net to send in a picture of your child and a 350-word bio.

Revelation 21:4

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
