The Story

Our angel passed 8/2/00-6/14/15. We love you Ahmie. This page has been active for 20 months and will continue until Christmas 2015. Let's continue to love and support Ahmie's family as they grieve the loss of Ahmie. Losing a child and sibling is the toughest grief imaginable. Gienna will begin the journey of looking for employment after the new year. Until then, they still need us. This type of grief takes years at the very best to even begin to feel a little normalcy. We know all love and support is needed and appreciated.

5/11/15 - LOVE NOTE: Ahmie has mass fluid in her lungs and mass tumors in her entire body. There is not going to be a cure and at this point we are keeping her as comfortable as possible. So many of us love her and this is very hard to hear. I appreciate all the advice that is coming out of love for Ahmie, but at this point it will not help due to the aggressiveness of her cancer. It is EVIL. I do read every msg and post sent. Feel free to continue sending, I just want to make clear it is not going to change the outcome of her journey. We have and are doing all we can for her. Ahmie is part of every decision that is made for her care and nothing is done without her input and approval. I send this with love and I know how much we all love Ahmie.

The video in the above link was made in the very room and halls where Ahmie was cared for during her cancer journey. We want to make it so every child can go home.

Ahmie would be proud and she knew of the walk and was excited to have us push her around in the wheel chair. Let's make her proud! And if we save just one child, it is worth all our efforts!

Most recently, medical bills are coming in from Ahmie's trip to NC Children's Hospital. Approximately $500 for co-pays. Gienna wants to say thank you to those who have helped make her and Aishah's summer as bright as possible by giving zoo tickets, movie tickets and many more wonderful, fun items.

On December 1, 2013, Ahmie Njie was diagnosed with Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumors.

3 days later she had eleven liters of fluid drained from her abdomen.
108 days later Ahmie had eleven hours of surgery removing her spleen, uterus, eggs, half of her diaphragm, and peritoneum lining of her abdomen.
134 days later, Ahmie was able to go home after a long battle in the hospital learning to breathe again, therapy, and feeding tubes.
192 days later, she completed eleven rounds of chemotherapy.
222 days later, Ahmie needed to stop radiation because her young body was not strong enough to continue.
246 days later, we celebrated Ahmie's 14th Birthday.
262 days later, two new DRSCT tumors were discovered in her neck.
291 days later, Pet scan found two tumors in her neck and five tumors behind her heart.
392 days later, Ahmie was admitted to Hospice Care (Stepping Stones). Her tumors were beginning to give her constant pain and she needed increased morphine.
410 days later, Ahmie and her family took a family trip to Disneyland. She was feeling well enough to return to school and was pain free.
475 days later, new tumors were found in her lungs and right kidney. The tumors around her bronchial tube had grown, as well as fluid build up in several areas including her right lung. Ahmie needed oxygen and was coughing constantly.
480 days later, Ahmie and her family took their final family trip to Disneyland in Hawaii.
554 days later, Ahmie started a new trial drug in hopes that it will help her and any data from her participation will help another child. Her body was weak, and her spirit was soaring.

560 days later, at 5:14am, another star has lit up the Heavens. We humbly ask one more favor after all the love and support that has been poured out to our sweet Ahmie. We would like to celebrate her life as she has requested to fill a venue with 5SOS, all of her friends and family, and raise her with love into the hands of God. Ahmie walked with us for 5429 days and 560 days she fought for her life and her family.

In loving Memory of Ahmie.
