A 6-year-old Wethersfield girl who won the hearts of those statewide for her courageous battle with an aggressive form of brain cancer has passed away, according to a post issued by her mother on Wednesday.
“This morning our sweet Maven passed away into eternity with Jesus after a long and courageous battle with brain cancer,” wrote Maven’s mother, Melanie Borgen.
“We are heartbroken but so thankful that she has no more pain, no more suffering and no more cancer treatments.”
In March, Maven was diagnosed with DIPG, an aggressive form of pediatric brain cancer that has no known cure.
The Borgen family requested comments in the Facebook post to allow the family to grieve.
“She is now at peace and we believe she’s dancing, singing and twirling in heaven. We will miss you until the day comes we are reunited in heaven and until then we’ll try to raise your brother to know God and honor you by trying to find just a little more joy in each day than the day before,” wrote Borgen.
