Heartbreaking Photo Of Cancer-Stricken Girl, 4, Kissing Her Father Through A Window Due To COVID-19 Isolation

Another family is torn apart by the COVID-19 pandemic.

A cancer-stricken 4-year-old girl is kissing her father goodbye through a window, as they are forced to separate while she undergoes chemotherapy.

In November 2019, Mila Sneddon, from Falkirk, Scotland, was diagnosed with leukemia. Currently, she is undergoing intensive chemotherapy. Her parents, Lynda and Scott Sneddon decided that the best way to keep their little princess safe from possible Coronavirus infection was by self-isolating in different houses.

The saddening photos have been shared online to raise awareness of the significance of self-isolation.

 

The family decided that Mila will stay with her mom while her dad and her sister live separately. Lynda is openly talking about their story online, to highlight the importance of self-isolating in times of pandemic.

“Initially, we felt bad to separate the family and did consider perhaps we were being too cautious but there’s lots of families out there who have done the same to protect their loved ones. I hope the picture makes people realise the importance of self distancing and stop ignoring the guidelines.”

Mila’s mother shares that the self-distancing is difficult for the family. However, they understand that the longer people go out, the longer their girl will have to stay indoors. She adds: “Mila is missing her daddy and sister”. The 4-year-old is feeling anxious knowing that her dad and her sister are away from her, but her dad’s visits make her happy.
