They know that I am writing this because I respect their privacy and we discussed it together and they encouraged me to write."

She went on to: "They understand that going through medical challenges and fighting to survive and heal is something to be proud of."

"I have watched my daughters care for one another. My youngest daughter studied the nurses with her sister and then assisted the next time. I saw how all my girls so easily stopped everything and put each other first, and felt the joy of being of service to those they love,” Angelina said.
