Arkansas mother asks for cards for toddler with terminal illnessPosted: Updated:
An Arkansas mother is asking for love and support for her 16-month-old daughter who has just weeks to live.
Doctors originally gave Lucille 13 months to live, and her body is now shutting down.
KFSM reporter Erika Thomas said in a Facebook post that a hospice nurse estimated the girl would live for up to two more weeks. That post was eight days ago.
Lucille's mother, Tenessa, is asking for cards for her daughter's half-birthday, which is on April 24. But Lucille might not make it until then.
Here's where you can send cards:
