Autumn’s mom Nicole Fox wrote on her GoFundMe campaign, “This is really hard for me to write guys I am just in so much pain right now words just can’t describe how heart breaking it is to lose a child but I know she is looking down on us with that precious little smile and them big brown eyes running around playing without iv’s cords and wires protruding from her precious little body and she is no longer suffering we wanted to post a few pictures of her last moments with some of her family!”
“Ya’ll have been instrumental in helping our family cope with this we thank each and everyone of you for such kind words in our greatest time of need any donation from this point will be used for Autumn’s Memorial Service that will take place in the next couple of weeks god bless you all,” she added.
Last month, Fox said that she was battling two viruses and pneumonia.
“She put me through the ringer this week,” said Fox, according to another WCTV report. “I guess she’s a fighter.”
The girl was born eight weeks early and suffered a number complications from the start, The Gainesville Sun reported. “We’re hoping and praying that she’ll have her a heart soon and have her home by August or September at the latest,” said her older sister.
