AceShowbiz - Kassady Bingham has lost her young son to cancer. The Instagram influencer turned to her social media page on Monday, February 24 to share the heartbreaking news, revealing that her second son Milo has died of leukimia at the age of two.
"Milo went home to Jesus this morning," the social media personality wrote alongside a photo of her cradling her son. "He didn't lose his battle, he gained the greatest reward; heavenly healing. I've never felt a pain like this. I'm too heartbroken to say anything else. Thank you all for your love and support. #mightymilo #moreloveformilo."
One day later, the Arizona-based mother offered fans a look at her son's final resting place. "The video is the view from his gravesite (and mine and Konnors.) You can see his sweet spirit there with us in the beginning of the video in that special orb," she captioned her post. "I never thought that at 26 I would be having to make funeral arrangements for my baby. I carried him the last couple years and now he's carrying me. How lucky am I."
Along with a series of photos, Kassady additionally shared, "I got to hold my baby again today. He had just gotten to the mortuary from Tucson when we got there so we were allowed to go in the back and spend a few min with him." She added, "He looked so beautiful and peaceful. His body was ice cold from being in a freezer but my heart felt so warm."
"It had been a hard day of picking out grave spots and caskets but as soon as he was placed in my arms my body calmed down," she poured out her thought. "I was whole again. I felt so much peace. It was like muscle memory for my body. Having the weight of him in my arms again was everything. It was so hard to place his body back in the bassinet and walk away from him again."
"While I know that isn't him again, it's still the body I snuggled and the cheeks I kissed for 15 months. We felt milo the entire morning. He was there with us, comforting us, and helping us get through the day as painlessly as possible."
Milo was diagnosed with the blood cancer when he was only 2 months old. Since then, Kassady has raised money for his treatment through her #MoreLoveForMilo merchandise. She also made use of her photo-sharing platform to share her experience.
After Kassady announced the passing of Milo, "The Bachelor" host Chris Harrison took to the comment section to express his condolences. "Kassady there are no words," he wrote. "God bless you all. You and mighty Milo will be in my prayers."
