Silas Edenfield sadly passed away on May 25th 2013 at the age of 4. Silas was from Georgia and had been diagnosed with a rare incurable form of liver cancer called Hepatoblastoma. I found two video’s of Silas online, the first video is the one that I have listed below. The second video that I watched had an interview with Silas one month before he died, in which Silas said to the camera “I don’t know why everyone has a sad outlook on this“, his Mom asked him what his outlook was and Silas replied “I see a good outlook, I get to meet Jesus soon and I will be spending eternity with him.” … Let those words sink in… The beautiful faith of a child! Below the video is his obituary. Please keep Silas and his family in your prayers!
Obituary: Silas made a request of his family, friends and Facebook fans that people paint their finger and toe nails gold, which is the color designated for Childhood Cancer Awareness. This sparked a campaign that quickly produced a local shortage Gold nail polish, and an impact that , thanks in part to social media, spanned the globe, Silas got the attention of TV stations in Atlanta and Savannah Newspapers around the state, and the winsome boy captured the hearts of newscasters, media personalities, and the office staff of at least one US Senator. Los Angeles area nail polish company, O.P.I., even produced a single run batch of “Silas Gold” Nail Polish for the family.
