Maryland mother shares last moments of little son’s battle with cancer

Ruth Scully of Leonardtown, Maryland, who lost her 4-year-old son to a rare soft tissue cancer, has shared and described the final moments of the little boy’s battle with disease.

Scully lost her son Nolan on 4th of February. The little boy was suffering from the very rare deadly soft tissue cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma.

In a heartbreaking post on Facebook, Scully wrote about Nolan’s last day. She wrote that she wanted to share her son’s last day to let people know how amazing and beautiful her son was.

Sharing one of her last conversations with Nolan, she wrote:

“Me: You're in a lot of pain aren't you baby?
Nolan: (looking down) Yeah.
Me: Nolan Ray, what is Mommy's job?
Nolan: To keep me SAFE! (With a big grin)
Me: Honey ... I can't do that anymore here. The only way I can keep you safe is in Heaven. (My heart shattering)
Nolan: Sooooo I'll just go to Heaven and play until you get there! You'll come right?”

Nolan took a deep breath, opened his eyes, smiled at her mom and told her that he loved her, before passing away at 11:54 p.m. on Feb. 4, 2017.
