The family and friends of Rhian Elise suber are uniting together to raise money to bury this little angel. Please show your support.

Our daughter Rhian Elise Suber was born on June 12, 2007 at 727 a.m. at Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup Washington. Her pretty smile was the first thing I noticed about her. On June 19, 2009 we found out she had Hepatoblastoma. A rare liver cancer, that occurs in children under the age of 4.

In order to do the surgery, she would have to go off chemo for a few weeks. Sadly when doing this, the tumors grew back and produce tumor fevers, which set back the surgery. Tacoma General wouldn’t go forward do to the lack of technology, to combat the tumor fever. So this forced us to move to Houston Texas for her to have the surgery she needed to help her battle. There was progress for a while, but then in mid March of this year, we found out that the tumor was growing rapidly and that the surgeries did not work and her body was not reacting to the chemo. She would continue to fight even though her body was giving way, her will never died. Even in her last moments, she fought and did what she always did. On Saturday June 11,2011 just several hours before her fourth birthday, at 8.52 I noticed she wasn’t breathing anymore. She laid in my arms as she went to Heaven...
