Penticton girl who touched so many hearts has died
The young Penticton girl who touched so many hearts, resulting in a huge outpouring of community support, passed away Monday.
Four-year-old Chloe Kroeger suffered from a rare form of cancer and became increasingly sick while in Newfoundland with her mother Gina and father Jon and was unable to return home.
Through social media the word of Chloe’s passing travelled quickly and thousands of messages of support and grief continue to pour in.
Many of the condolences are from people who didn’t even know the little girl but had been following her crusade in the battle against cancer online.
Earlier this month, Chloe’s mother Gina posted on Facebook the news about her daughter’s worsening condition.
“We are at ease knowing she is comfortable and surrounded by so many that love her. Thank you everyone for your love and support through this difficult time,” wrote Gina.
Thanks to the community support during the past year from individuals, businesses and other organizations Chloe was able to make a special trip to Disney World In Orlando and then to Newfoundland to see relatives.
