Andrew Kaczynski has just announced that his baby girl, Francesca, has tragically passed away.

And people from all around the world have been sending in their condolences to Kaczynski and his family.

And back in March of this year, he and his wife, Rachel Louise Ensign, welcomed their first child into the world – baby Francesca.

Francesca, who is nicknamed “Bean” by her mom and dad, was diagnosed with an extremely aggressive brain tumor.

And he asked people to keep him and his family in their prayers during the unbelievably difficult time.

Writing, “Francesca is the strongest person and most resilient person. Less than a week ago she had 2 brain surgeries and she’s already at home and smiling. I’m confident she will fight this.”

But despite the rigorous treatment and the 2 brain surgeries the little girl underwent, it simply wasn’t enough.

“We’re heartbroken to have to announce our beautiful daughter Francesca passed away last night in the arms of her mom and dad. There will always be a Bean-sized hole in our hearts for her. We’re so grateful to have known her love. Francesca, we love you,” he said in a heartfelt statement.

“This was the last smile Francesca gave me,” the heartbroken father wrote with this picture. “It was on my birthday on November 30th and it was the only thing I wanted that day. Even though she had begun to get seriously sick from her treatment at this point, she still managed to give Dada a small smile. We miss her tremendously.”

And they then asked that all donations in honor of the infant be made to the PMC Winter Cycle charity event, which donates all proceeds to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.

According to the PMC Winter Cycle page, the event for cancer research has already raised more than $320,000.

Our deepest thoughts and condolences go out to Kaczynski and his family during this terrible time.
