Aliana has passed away from SSPE, a severe, always fatal measles complication, this morning - in a short statement on their Facebook page, her father writes:
Our litte angel went on her way this morning. The last months were a hard time, she fought a lot, but sadly she lost. She went from us really peacefully with a beautiful smile on her lips. This is going to be a hard time for us, but Aliana has decided that she will be better where she is now, without suffering and without pain. We thank everyone who supported us until now and are still supporting us. Please light a candle, so we can accompany Aliana on her way to a better place.
I am tired. How often do we need to report on preventable deaths? My thoughts and deepest condolences are with her family. Please light a candle. Please vaccinate your children.
