Happy Sunday, the world is horrible

This story is supremely fucked up. (I wish CNN would use this as their lead every now and then.) Six-year-old Elena Desserich was diagnosed with brain cancer. Her tumor became so enlarged that she lost the ability to speak, so she began to leave little notes around the
