The Voices of Childhood Cancer, Profile #17 in an ongoing series
Daniela Marie Conte was diagnosed with a rare cancer, Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma, on October 5, 2016, at the tender age of five. Beautiful brown-eyed angel Daniela fearlessly beat cancer three times before gaining her wings on March 2, 2020. "Our beautiful Daniela fought the good fight, never letting it bring her down or take away her smile." her mother acknowledged. There is a saying that little girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice. Daniela Conte was no exception. Her mother says, "She had a larger than life personality and was kind to all. She will always be remembered as a fun-loving, kind-hearted girl and will be missed forever."
Katia Conte lovingly remembers her daughter's life "Daniela came into this world like a ray of sunshine." She expounds, "As an infant, she was an extremely happy baby. She had these big brown eyes, an incredibly sweet smile, and an adorable giggle that would make you melt." And "She was extremely affectionate and gave endless amounts of love to those closest to her." She proudly claims, "Daniela gave the most amazing hugs!"
Her mother's spirit brightens as she narrates, "So, it didn't take long before she had us wrapped around her little finger. As a toddler, Daniela put a remarkable amount of enthusiasm into everything she did. At the same time, she managed to bring the good out in everything and everyone." A loving daughter and faithful friend, Daniela was close to her extended family and had a particularly special bond with her brothers and sister. Katia remembers, "Daniela was a wonderful big sister who taught them a lot, and she always had their back." and "When her brothers and sister would see her, their whole face would light up."
