PGA Tour player Hayden and his wife Emma recently lost their three-year-old daughter Sage, who was suffering from the birth-related disorder.
The couple welcomed Sage into the world in 2020, but she was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 just before reaching 26 weeks of gestation.
Despite Hayden and his wife Emma’s strong wish to support Sage’s life after her birth, medical professionals they trusted advised that doing so might only extend Sage’s suffering.
Doctors predicted she wouldn’t survive beyond a few hours, but she defied the odds and lived a miraculous three years.
However, Sage couldn’t overcome the disorder and passed away on November 13, 2023.
Emma shared a heartfelt message, stating that their beloved daughter Sage Elyse, Our princess miracle girl, Sage Elyse, was eternally healed on November 13, 2023, at 7:10 pm. She brought us immeasurable joy and blessings. Her wild and silly spirit is no longer limited by her earthly body. We know she is just starting the best days of her existence.”
She also requested that attendees wear pink in remembrance of Sage at her funeral.
