“I’m going to be a flower girl”: Final wish comes true for four-year-old with just one week to live

Like any little girl, four-year-old Paige was excited about the prospect of dressing up – this time for her parents’ wedding.

“My mummy and daddy are getting married and I’m going to be a flower girl,” she would tell people.

Jacob Skarratts and Tania Miller were planning a big wedding next year, but their life was turned upside down two months ago when their young daughter’s headaches led to the diagnosis of a brain tumour the size of a lemon.

She immediately underwent surgery to remove the tumour in a local hospital in Brisbane, Australia, but Tania and Jacob were told her condition was “incurable”.

Heartbreakingly, the efforts medical professionals took to prolong her life – chemotherapy and radiation – had an adverse effect on the little girl.

One day into her treatment doctors found fluid and blood on her brain.

Paige has now been given just a week or two to live.

“The doctors took them to another room to let them know there was nothing else they could do,” Jacob’s sister Innez Stonnell told the Gold Coast Bulletin.
