AceShowbiz - Social media influencer Kate Hudson is mourning the death of her daughter Eliza. The Ohio native shared the heartbreaking news on her Instagram account on Monday, June 21, revealing that the 2-year-old girl lost her battle with cancer on Father's Day.
In the post, the blogger opened with a quote which read, "When the links of life are broken and a child has to part, there is nothing that will ever heal a parent's broken heart." She then admitted that she and her fiance Chance Moore were "broken" over the passing of their baby girl who was diagnosed with "very rare and aggressive cancer known as rhabdoid tumor."
"My sweet baby girl. I don't know how we will go on without you. I know we promised you we would be brave, just like you. But we are broken," she penned. "Even though we know you are no longer suffering or in pain or frustrated with what life had become. I thought that because we knew you were dying, that your death would not feel so sudden. But it did. I wasn't ready to see what I saw."
She then recounted, "I woke up this morning, still half asleep,, and reached for your hand. But you were not there. You left last night. In a van that took you away. I wanted to run after you. But I couldn't. I have to accept this new reality...but I am not ready to let you go. I don't think I ever will be ready to move on. I don't know where your soul went when it left your little body."
"I want to believe you are somewhere with my dad and my sister....and your sister...all loved ones you never met," Kate went on to say, seemingly trying to see the good in this devastating moment. "I want to believe you are all together. Dancing in meadows or swinging on trees or walking alongside a beach somewhere with ocean salt water washing over your toes."
She added, "I also want to believe your soul transferred into us, your Mamma and your Dadda. That you left your little body and gently latched onto our souls. That we are now intertwined for life. I want to believe you are still alive somewhere." Kate later concluded, "I want to believe I will wake up from this nightmare and you will be there holding our hands. Telling us it was just a bad dream."
Eliza's passing arrives just days after Kate shut down rumors that she had died. "I wish I could unsee the ignorant, idiotic comments. I wish I could just ignore them. I do. Most of the time I have the strength. That doesn't mean I don't break down into tears before deleting said comments or blocking Eliza's 'followers,' " she wrote, adding some commenters left things like, "RIP," and asked, "Did she die?"
"I didn't realize our family's suffering was just a playground for your ignorance. I didn't realize how disgusting humanity could really be. I didn't realize I would feel so much hate and anger towards people I have never met," she shared.
