Earlier this week, Kassady Bingham shared a heartwrenching family update.
The Instagram Influencer revealed the heavy news that her 15-month-old son Milo had died after a fight with leukemia.
“Milo went home to Jesus this morning. He didn’t lose his battle, he gained the greatest reward; heavenly healing,” she posted to Instagram. “I’ve never felt a pain like this. I’m too heartbroken to say anything else. Thank you all for your love and support. #mightymilo #moreloveformilo.”
She then shared an emotional photo of the very last time she was able to hold her baby in the hospital.
“His spirit had already passed, but I couldn’t let go. His body started to stiffen up as I held him. I could no longer form his fingers around mine. I watched his lips turn blue, his skin turn green and his tongue turn white,” she shared. “I eventually handed him over to a nurse I had just met that day and watched as she walked out the door with my baby in her arms.”
“He looked more peaceful than ever, and even looked like he was almost smiling again,” Kassady went on.
“I know he’s smiling in heaven. His body may be gone, but he’s still here. Every day is one day closer to you, bubba. I can’t wait to continue raising you in heaven in your perfect, healthy body. Mommy loves you. #mightymilo #moreloveformilo.”
Kassidy has used her platform to encourage more research as well as funding in regards to infantile leukemia.
While fundraising through her #MoreLoveForMilo merchandise, Kassady also garnered the support of many famous figures, including The Bachelor host Chris Harrison.
“Kassady there are no words,” he posted in the comments section. “God bless you all. You and mighty Milo will be in my prayers.”
While Kassady along with her family mourns the loss of Milo, they continue to raise awareness and helping families in similar scenarios.
“Milo Lance Bingham- November 6, 2018- February 23, 2020… Milo went to his heavenly home this morning,” Konnor Bingham shared on Instagram. “He went peacefully as his mother held him in her arms. You’ll always be with me, my son.”
