4-Year-Old Boy Tells Mother He Will Wait For Her In Heaven Before Passing Away
Little Nolan Scully was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma – a rate of soft tissue cancer – when he was only 3-years-old.
When his struggle for survival ended, Nolan no longer thought of death, but stressed his conviction. Knowing he was about to die, he told his mother Ruth that he was just waiting for her in paradise.
After the diagnosis, Nolan’s family created a Facebook page that recorded the good and bad times of their trip.
Family friend Frank Bell said, “Every fight he had just recovered was amazing.”
“You knocked him down, he just came back and ran.”
Little Nolan wanted to become a policeman and serve his community, like his father Jonathan, firefighter. Jonathan resigned from his ministry as soon as his son’s diagnosis was established.
During his hospital stay, the city police commissioner fulfilled his dream by swearing him in as a volunteer police officer. On this extraordinary day, he became Sergeant Rollin ‘Nolan.
Many people prayed for Nolan, including parents and strangers. You will never forget those heartbreaking days.
“We met her entire team, when her oncologist spoke, I saw the pure pain in her eyes, she was always honest with us and fought with us all the time, but her scanner was updated. showed large tumors that squeezed her bronchi and heart less than four weeks after her open-chest operation.The metastatic alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma spreads like wildfire, and she said at the time that she did not think that his cancer could be cured because he had become resistant to all the treatment options we had tried.
No words can express how difficult it has been for the family to process this message. Nolan’s mother now gathered her strength to tell what had happened to her son. Surprisingly, however, his reaction showed how pure and strong his faith was. Nolan showed no fear of death. He even told him that he would wait for her in paradise.
Nolan’s mother has shared one of the conversations she had with her son during the final days before his passing:
Mom: Poot, it hurts to breathe, doesn’t it?
Nolan: Weeeelll…. yeah.
Mom: You’re in a lot of pain aren’t you baby?
Nolan: (looking down) Yeah.
Mom: Poot, this Cancer stuff sucks. You don’t have to fight anymore.
Nolan: (Pure Happiness) I DONT??!! But I will for you Mommy!!
Mom:: No Poot!! Is that what you have been doing?? Fighting for Mommy??
Nolan: Well DUH!!
Mom: Nolan Ray, what is Mommy’s job?
Nolan: To keep me SAFE! (With a big grin)
Mom: Honey … I can’t do that anymore here. The only way I can keep you safe is in Heaven. (My heart shattering)
Nolan: Sooooo I’ll just go to Heaven and play until you get there! You’ll come, right?
Mom: Absolutely!! You can’t get rid of Mommy that easy!!
Nolan: Thank you Mommy!!! I’ll go play with Hunter and Brylee and Henry!!”
This 4 year old boy and his family took advantage of the little time he spent having fun. Nolan liked having his mother close to him so he could see and hold her.
On the last day of her life, Ruth was allowed to take a quick shower. Shortly after closing the bathroom door, her son closed his eyes and fell asleep to begin the end of his life, she said.
When she came out of the shower, little Nolan was surrounded by his entire medical team. While Ruth was taking a shower, her son had fallen into a coma and his lungs had collapsed.
I ran and jumped into bed with him and put my hand on the right side of his face. Then a miracle happened that I will never forget. My angel took a breath, opened his eyes, smiled at me and said, “I love you mom.” He turned his head towards me at 23:54. Rollin Nolan Scully died when I sang “You are My Sunshine” in his ear. ”
When Nolan’s mother shared online memories of him, she joined a photo side by side of the bathroom floor. Little Nolan loved to lie on the bath mat outside the shower.
Although it is difficult for Nolan’s family to accept the loss of the little Nolan, they knew he was a small child of great faith. His departure was only temporary, because he knew that Jesus was paying for all of us. This idea gives them comfort until today.
