Nahomi and Chris Moore are the parents of Brownsville baby Milo who is battling cancer.

Milo was diagnosed with a malignant rhabdoid tumor, a rare, aggressive type of tumor, and given low odds of survival.

“Mighty Milo” has been battling cancer and has had multiple rounds of chemotherapy.

Milos family documents Milos’s journey on a Facebook page “Mighty Milo – Milo es Fuerte.”

In hopes for a miracle, Milos’s mother announced the family’s decision in placing him into hospice on their Facebook Page Thursday, September 16.

The family explained on their recent update that they understand they can no longer help Milo medically and now continue to hold faith for a miracle.

As a family we have decided to place Milo in hospice care. We have come to a point where medically there is not much more they can do. However Chris, I and our family serve a God who is bigger, greater and more knowledgeable than any other physician and there is nothing too hard for him. As long as Milo has breath in his lungs we are believing for a full breathtaking recovery. We are not standing down or backing out. We are standing firm on our faith for his miracle.
