This is the true story of six-year-old Elena's battle with a lethal brain cancer and the inspiration her family drew from how she lived her short life to the max. Less than five months after her diagnosis she was dead but the love notes she drew are still being found around the house where she had hidden them. Written through the diary of her parents, Brooke and Keith Desserich, Elena's daily story tells of inspiration as she lives each day, one at a time, always finding new things to enjoy and look out for, from the changed relation with her sister, the day her art appeared in a museum, to the wedding of her favourite cousin. She lost and regained her ability to speak on several occasions, but continued to draw love notes for her family.
