A father shared a heartbreaking photo of his son comforting his 4-year-old sister before her death.

“A little boy should not have to say goodbye to his partner in crime, his playmate, his best friend, his little sister. This isn’t how it’s supposed to be.”

Matt Sooter posted the image to a group dedicated to his daughter Addy, who was battling Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glimoa, a rare tumor that starts in the brain stem.

“Pray for Jackson. He doesn’t want to leave her side and we won’t make him. Pray for us.”

Addy passed away the next day.
