Day 271, Monday December 17, 2018 4:55 PM EST

Today, Monday December 17, 2018 at 4:55 PM EST, Amber left this world and entered Heaven. Amber died peacefully, nestled in the arms of her Mom, with her Dad at her side and her siblings nearby. She has no more earthly worries, no more cancer, no more weakness. Her only concerns now are eating marshmallows and rehearsing with the Choir of Angels.

We’ll write more over the next few days, but for now, this is just about all the energy I can put into writing.

  1. I pray that you will feel the same loving arms of God that are now holding precious little Amber— and that you will eat many marshmallows in her honor knowing that’s what she’s munching on in heaven

    My deepest condolences on Amber’s passing.

    A beautiful and sweet child

    She is now in God’s loving arms at peace.

    My prayers for your entire Family

  3. No words can describe how sorry I am for your loss. Sweet Amber will stay in our hearts. My most sincere condolences.

  4. I have been reading your blog, observing your journey and have never left a comment.

    You are an amazing family.

    Amber has touched the hearts of people she had never met.

  5. So sorry for your loss. Amber sounds like a beautiful girl — inside and out. May your family continue to have strength and peace.

  6. I am so sorry for your loss. I have been praying for Amber answer all of you ever since I found out about her diagnosis. When I first started to pray, I was praying for cure with everybody else. Once I realized how sick she was getting oh, I started to pray that you, (the entire family) will have comfort from God. We all know she is in a better place, and probably enjoying unlimited marshmallows. Although I have never met any of you, you have all taught me very valuable blessings of strength and courage that I will carry forward. My deepest sympathy to all… children included.

  7. Matt and Caron my heart breaks for you and your family. My daughter was Amber’s dance teacher and I dont know either of you, but i have followed this blog since the first day and write with tears streaming down. You have been through so much and your unwavering love for your daughter was very clear. Amber touched more lives in her past year than one could realize and I will continue to pray for the little angel now walking hand in hand with Jesus this season in a pain free place. Shelley thought the world of that little angel of yours. May she watch over you on eagles wings. – Jennifer Erickson

  8. I am so sorry. We lost our 7-year-old son today from bone cancer. We are here if you ever want to talk. Not too many understand this painful journey.

  9. Matt, Caron, et al

    I am praying for peace, calm, serenity and God’s healing arms to embrace you and your entire family.

  10. We have been following your story and there are no words to express how broken our hearts are for you. We can only take comfort that Amber is in a better place in the arms of our Heavenly Father. Thank you for sharing this journey and your strength, we continue to lift your family up in prayer.

  11. Thank you for letting us know, Matt. Your incredible love for your friends and family in keeping us update to date on this has been beyond amazing. I pray for your family through this time. We LOVE YOU!! Peaceful journey to Amber. So glad she was with you.

  12. Praying for the family as you adjust to the loss of an amazing little girl. Knowing that beautiful memories of Amber will always be in your hearts.

  13. I’m so sorry Matt! There are no words.. just sending a warm embrace and a special kiss to your angel!

  14. May you all find peace, and comfort knowing Amber is in God’s arms now. My love with you all.

  15. My heart cries for Amber and her family tonight. What an angelic face and now a very sorrowful loss. She looks a lot like my niece who passed away some time ago. Maybe they will be friends in Heaven and can watch over all of us and laugh… and eat marshmallows. My sympathies.

  16. Matt, Caron and all of your family, I am truly heartbroken for all of you. I have been following your journey and you both have incredible faith and strength. I prayed for Amber every day and was hoping she could get through the holidays. This was not meant to be. I will continue to pray for Amber God’s little angel and all of you. You should consider publishing this blog someday as I think it would help other family’s who also should never have to go through this. I am so happy that you can see the blessings in all of this and hope and pray that it will bring you peace. Amber is now home with our heavenly father and will sing, eat marshmallows and be waiting for all of you in paradise.

  17. Condolences to you and your entire family during this sad time.
    I appreciated the opportunity to feel like i almost knew her from following your blog. You raised your daughter to be a wonderful person. She will be dearly missed
