Little freckle-faced Hannah Day lays in a hospital bed with tubes and monitors all over her little body.

Hannah, 7, has been fiercely fighting cancer and is now battling pneumonia. She has spent most of her young life in and out of hospitals, with some remissions and lots of disappointments health wise. Since May 2015 she has relapsed three times.

Her journey is a exhaustive one both for herself and her family. She is back in hospital. But this time she has beaten the odds and is getting better. On June 29 she was hugged by her mother and ate for the first time in over a week.

Her mother, Brooke Ervin had posted the latest news on her condition on June 27, saying, “I know everyone has been waiting patiently for an update. We had to wait for doctors and of course to see if the plan was still the same before posting. Didn’t want to get our hopes up or anyone else’s. Doctors are seriously impressed with how she is doing.”

She said the type of pneumonia Hannah has usually gets far worse before getting better. It’s been five days and she said Hannah has only gotten better.

“This kid is seriously so strong. I want nothing more then to hold my baby girl in my arms again,” said Ervin on Facebook.

“She is one tough cookie and we love her more then life it self. There is nothing worse then seeing your child suffer.”
