On Good Friday a ‘Christmas Miracle’ occurred for a 6-year-old girl and her family in Fruitland, Idaho. The young girl's name is Alanna and she is suffering a rare form of terminal cancer.
One year after celebrating her remission, the cancer unfortunately returned recently, doctors only giving her weeks to live.
The family decided they would celebrate Christmas on Easter weekend, calling it ‘Chreaster’ since their beautiful daughter may not make it to December this year.
Waking up to the unusual falling snow in the middle of April as they prepared to celebrate ‘Chreaster’, brought tremendous hope to Alanna’s family members.
Her parents both admitted that experiencing snow at this time of year is absolutely miraculous.
Alanna’s mother stated, "Snow in April it just doesn't happen. It takes my breath away, it really does. We believe in miracles and that was one of them...We're not putting a time limit on her because that's not our job."
"[The snow] was a gift from someone watching down, they wanted to give us something special," said Alanna’s father.
The family is choosing to treasure every moment with their daughter, living in joy rather than despair.
