Meet Layla... Warrior Princess
When Layla Paige Sonnen was born in 2015, her parents were overjoyed. She was beautiful with large green eyes and 10 tiny fingers and toes. She looked perfectly healthy.
But, at the age of 6 months, Layla Paige had a grand mal seizure. She was admitted to the hospital and soon received the worst news any parents could imagine: Layla had a rare brain disorder.
For the next two years, Layla received exceptional care from doctors, nurses and therapists at three leading West Coast hospitals.
Layla’s parents explained “Layla fought like a true "Warrior Princess” for 22 months. But when her nervous system started to break down, we started to realize that our brave girl was suffering. But then a gentle physician named Dr. Glen Komatsu helped us see that Layla’s quality of life was deteriorating. Dr. and his team from TrinityKids Care helped us realize that we were prolonging Layla’s pain instead of prolonging her life”.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of his team of medical miracle workers, Layla took her final breath at home, in her mother’s arms surrounded by her father and her brother Luke, she was finally pain free and at peace.
"Words cannot describe the tremendous debt of gratitude our family feels toward Providence TrinityKids Care, the only dedicated pediatric hospice program in Los Angeles and Orange counties for children. They compassionately guided us through the most devastating time in our life. Please consider honoring Layla’s legacy and helping us say "thank you" for the incredible care our family received. Your gift will help other patients and families receive this much-needed care.”
