'The View' co-host Sara Haines shares a tragic loss in a touching post on Instagram
The View co-host shared a heartbreaking news through Instagram.
On April 10, 2018, Sara Haines revealed that her friend recently went through a loss.
She shared that her best friend’s sister, who she also said she is close friends with, lost her baby daughter to cancer.
Entertainment Daily reported that the baby’s name was Edie and she had passed away over the weekend after she had strongly fought against cancer for so long.
In her post, Haines kindly asked her followers to think of making a donation in Edie’s name to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
She said that it didn’t matter how big or small the donation was because every penny helps.
Haines explained that her best friend, Erin, has a twin sister, adding that she is also friends with Erin’s twin. Erin’s twin sister recently lost her daughter to cancer.
She wrote, ‘She and her husband Matt exemplified a super human strength I have never witnessed in my life... and welcomed their 2nd baby within 12 hours of Edie's passing.’
Haines shared that Edie was ‘tiny but fierce.’ She went on to say that even though she lived a short life, Edie made lots of people happy.
Pleading for her followers to consider making a donation in Edie’s name, she also wrote, ‘Her heart, spirit and soul live on with each cent donated to fight this vile disease.’
Her fans were quick to send their love and prayers to Haines and to her friend’s family.
One fan said that people should never have to endure a tragedy like losing a son or a daughter.
Haines, a mother of two children, shared the link to the post Edie’s family created on The Leukemia & Lymphoma’s Team In Training website.
The link serves as a channel where people can make donations to the charity.
‘Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day; like immunotherapies that use a person's own immune system to kill cancer,’ read a part of the lengthy post.
