Author unknown There is no footprint too small to leave an imprint on this world.

It is with a heavy heart I let you all know that this month's featured Little Giant, Jace Williams passed away last night.  In speaking with his mother, Courtney she had told me he had pneumonia in both lungs yesterday and trouble breathing.  Jace was awaiting his kidney transplant and could not fight anymore.  

I told Courtney we will keep fighting for her little giant angel and those that passed before him.  Like I have said since this diagnosis first reared it's head at our Emily, "we are fighting against time".  We cannot and will not take it for granted as we know and have seen and invested in these families and their children.  

Our sincere condolences to Jace's entire family and I will update in regards to his memorial as I have word.

And to all of our friends and family, please wrap your arms of strength around Courtney and her family and show your love for them here in the comments, on our FB page @believeinlittlegiants, or to Courtney Marie Nichols on FB.
