'she is free now': frankie remembered as 'brave angel'
Frankie's death has left her friends, family and complete strangers questioning why life can be so cruel. Frankie's uncle and aunt, Patrick and Jess Beresford from Gltone, have spent months by the three-year-old's side. The Gltone couple has shared Frankie's story far and wide, organising fundraising events too to assist with the family's travel and medication bills. Photos of Frankie with butterflies overlaid on her smiling face were shared on Saturday and reminded family and friends of their "sweet-spirited darling".
Their daughter was diagnosed with an aggressive, fast-acting cancer and within 48 hours began chemotherapy.
The family and Lady Cilento Children's Hospital started a worldwide search for lifesaving bone marrow, but to no avail. Aunt Jess Beresford launched a GoFundMe to assist the family with their travel and medical bills. Yesterday a family member posted that Kate and Duncan were thankful for the support and messages.
