Beckett was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in February 2020.
Emilie-Rose went to each appointment with all the joy with which she is endowed. She was visiting her friends the nurses, she never flinched when she had to be pricked countless times. She wore her best clothes ranging from pajamas to Halloween costume, with her best smile.
