Mikayla Francis Passes Away

Mikayla Francis Passes Away - Mikayla Francis, the young cancer sufferer who stole the hearts of Victorians when she told her family she feared being forgotten, has died.

Little Mikayla died this morning from the advanced liver cancer that had failed to respond to treatment, just days after celebrating her seventh birthday.

She died at 8.30am at home with her family beside her.

It follows the Victorian community rallying around Mikayla and her family, helping the young girl realise she would never be forgotten, with a huge early Christmas and birthday party.

Hundreds of people were inspired to post comments at heraldsun.com.au after hearing her story.

Her father, Andrew Francis, prompted the response when he related how she kept wrapping her arms around her parents, saying: "Don't forget me, don't forget me when I'm gone.
