Obituary For Cheyanne Nicole Perry Suarez

Cheyanne Nicole Perry Suarez, 26 of Umatilla, Florida went home to be with the Lord on August 12, 2023.

Born on January 11, 1997 in Florida to beloved parents Lori Perry-Chavis and Tim Perry. At the age of 6 she was blessed with her stepfather, Sean Chavis.

Cheyanne is survived by her husband, Silvino Suarez who was her best friend, soulmate and high school sweetheart. As a wife she exhibited such care and compassion. She was always there to encourage and support her husband in all things.

Cheyanne was the ABSOLUTE perfect daughter. She was so sweet, loving, generous and kind. Others always came before herself. She loved the Lord with all her heart, mind and soul and her faith never waivered. Family and friends were her everything. Her best friends were like family to her and she would do anything for them.

Chey, as she was fondly called by her family and friends was a dedicated advocate in the chronic illness community. She helped many people and families across multiple social media platforms as well as through her published children’s books. She was deeply passionate about helping others and making an impact.

Chey was an avid reader. You would always see a book in her hands and if not then one would be nearby. She enjoyed planting and harvesting her vegetable garden every year. Knitting was also a hobby of hers. She adored her dog, Teddy Graham and her cat, Weasley.

Cheyanne has joined her father Timothy J. Perry and her maternal grandparents Anita “Mema” Athan, Thomas “Papa” Athan; as well as her paternal grandparents Patricia and Jack Perry in heaven. There are many additional family members and friends that she has joined as well.

Cheyanne will be deeply missed by her family, friends and all whose lives she has touched with her kind hearted soul.

A Celebration of Life will be held in Umatilla, Florida in the near future.

    I am sorry it has taken me so long to add my thoughts to this page. I dearly loved Cheyanne and admired her strength and perseverance. She had such a purity of spirit, and was torally selfless. She was my warrior princess bride! I will never forget the unique way she asked her best friends to be in her wedding, and how much it meant to them. She was always doing thoughtful things like that for people she lived, and for people she just met. Her generosity of spirit is unmatched here on earth, which perhaps is why God gave her wings, so she could fly in heaven with the angels! I loved her dearly as a friend, but I know that my grief cannot begin to compare to that of her beloved parents and family members, and if the love of her life, her husband, Silvino. Sending loving prayers to comfort you.

  • 09/14/2023

    Cheyenne was such a sweet soul and I feel honored to have known her through the MCAS community. She helped me with questions I had when newly diagnosed and struggling, as I know she did many. Seeing her photos of Teddy and Weasley always made me smile and I have a hat she knitted that I will always remember her by. Sending my condolences, prayers, and love to her family and friends.

  • 09/06/2023

    If I could describe Cheyanne in one word, I would say, selfless. Cheyenne was an impact in everyone she came across. Such a beautiful soul and being.

  • 09/02/2023

    I have known Cheyanne for a while. But when she hosted an Origami Owl party. We started chatting online We both loved knitting and our golden doodles. As well as fighting rare illnesses. What always amazed me was her kindness towards others. She always strived to educate. I wish we could have met in person. I miss her

  • 09/01/2023

    I want you to know how much I have been thinking of and praying for you. The news about our precious Cheyanne has been difficult to accept, yet I know and trust, just as she did, that our loving, Heavenly Father has been and is still in control. I trust she is with Jesus and would not trade places with any of us. I trust she is no longer hurting. I trust that she would want you to continue to love and support each other. I know that she loved each of you. I know she loved me. I know she loved Jesus. I know you are hurting: and I hurt with you on a different level. I love you and I love Jesus. I am praying for Him to comfort you and give you peace. Please know, Cheyanne impacted countless lives and her bravery and strength and courage will be an ongoing, voice of encouragement to many.✝️💟 In Our Father's Love, Aunt June ( JuneBug ) ♥️🐞💋🙏

    I only knew her from her You Tube videos,but Cheyanne was obviously an extremely brave, talented , knowledgeable and gifted speaker. She was someone to be admired for her strength and humour despite being so ill for so long. Sleep Well Angel Girl. You deserve everlasting happiness ❤️

  • 08/27/2023

    Chey was the reason my world had light in it... She taught me how to advocate for myself in the medical field, as well as everything I know about MCAS and feeding tubes. To me, she was much more than just a friend, and an advocate in the chronic illness community. She also gave me the courage to fight for my dreams, and escape abuse/DV after 28 years of suffering in silence. In all of her kindness, she brought a light and a hope into my life that will forever be cherished. RIP Chey. Thank you for sharing with me your light and love. I'll love you always friend.

  • 08/26/2023

    Chey was a beautiful person inside and out. She helped me so much in the beginning of my chronic illness to know I was suffering from mast cell activation disorder and Dysautonomia. She was a funny , and beautiful person inside and out . Fly high chey Starr Andrews Strong HG Activist

    In my second year as a Kindergarten teacher in 2003, little Cheyanne Perry walked into my classroom after the school year had already begun. She quickly lit up our classroom and became mine.. Not only did I gain a precious student, but I also gained her sweet mama as a friend and then as my assistant. What a gift! Cheyanne grew up to be an incredibly talented young woman who inspired me daily. I was so excited to buy her first children's book, and I've read it many times to my girls with such pride in who Cheyanne had become. An inspiration in the chronic illness community, a true warrior, and a faithful servant of God. I loved that she was so willing to share her journey with the hope that she could impact others through her trials. My heart is with Lori, Sean, Silvino, family, and friends as their beautiful Cheyanne has gone to be with her Lord. I will miss her so! 🩷

  • 08/26/2023

    Chey was such a beautiful young woman, both inside and out. Our families were brought together by chronic illness, and Chey taught us so much in the short time we had with her. She brought hope and kind words to our hard days, and joy and laughter to our good days. She was a blessing to everyone fortunate enough to call her a friend, and I'm so thankful for the memories - from Halloween dress-up parties, Christmas ornament swaps, snow days, zoom and FaceTime calls, birthday get-togethers (with dinner in the garage!), a covid birthday surprise driveway visit to sing Happy Birthday to Brynn while masked and distanced, game nights, to helping each other out with medical supplies in a pinch, and endless love and support through hospitalizations. Cheyanne was a bright spot on this earth, and while we are heartbroken and miss her, we will forever cherish the memories. Melissa Duncan

    Cheyenne was my Lil sister. She was the best sister in the world. I wish I would have told her that more. I'll never forget going to Universal Studios and running around from ride to ride. She was so happy. She was always happy. She was special Thank you Chey for being my sister I love you and miss you so much. I'm sorry I wasn't there more. I'm sorry

  • 08/24/2023

    Chey was the most kind hearted young lady that exhibited what true strength really is. I was grateful to meet her and Lori at school and our families later became friends. Cheyanne and her family have been in our daily prayers for years. We are heartbroken to see her go, but her everlasting impression on others will surely be around forever. Sending hugs and prayers to Lori, Sean, Silvino and the entire family at this time of sorrow. We are here for you. Love, The Bartberger Family

    I was a brand new nurse. I was terrified to start! My preceptor, Amber, and I had beautiful Cheyanne. I'll never forget the day we went in for the first time but Amber smelt like 'warm vanilla sugar' but I was in the clear! I got to take care of Cheyanne all by myself and our beautiful friendship started. I had her almost every shift I was on! One morning I was trying to be so quiet, I tripped and almost fell right in bed with mom!!! I have thought of her quite often since she moved away from Florida. She will FOREVER be in my heart ❤️ nurse Lindsay

  • 08/24/2023

    I met this family years ago in Florida, and they were also so nice and just one of the strongest family I have met. Chey was so brave, loving, and so smart. I grew close to the whole family. The world has lost such an amazing human and I so sad for it!!!! Cheyanne helped me to think outside the box and become a better nurse! I cannot thank her enough! She will be truly missed by everyone one she met, because she touched the heart of everyone she met.

  • 08/24/2023

    Me, Cheyanne, and Silvino all met in Mr. Igar's math class in high school. I'm so glad I got to witness the start of their relationship all those years ago! Cheyanne was a lovely woman who's advocacy touched the hearts of many. She will always be remembered for her strength!

  • 08/23/2023

    Words can not express how I feel. Lori, I love you and Cheyanne so much. Cheyanne was our sweet angel. She was a beautiful person inside and out. Even though, I wasn't around her in the last few years, I always tried to keep in touch with you and Cheyanne. Being I couldn't see her, you always sent me pictures, which I enjoyed very much. I thank you for that. I will miss her and her sweet smile. We will see her again one day. Love you, Aunt Murlene and Uncle Don

  • 08/23/2023

    I've been holding off, trying to find the right words. Cheyanne was definitely one of a kind. She had a soul like no other, and the heart of a servant. I love this sweet girl, and the world will be a little less without her.

  • 08/23/2023

    We knew each other through chronic illness bloggers and you did such an amazing job with your content and words. Sending love to all your family and sleep tight x

  • 08/22/2023

    Thank you, Cheyanne. ... Thank you, for the blessed honor of knowing you. — Though I never got the chance to meet you face to face, our every interaction over the years has meant more to me than words can say. If not for Cheyanne I do not think I would be here to write this post. — I found Cheyanne's story from the depths of my own, we shared many strange phenomenons of similarities, and at a time when I was lost in grief and illness we "met" thanks to the magic of technology. I was no longer a very lonely one in a very big million, I was one of two; thanks to her that two became many more. She soon introduced me to groups of people like me, all going through their own journeys. Cheyanne gave a voice to so much I could not say. She and her advocacy fought for much more than herself, she fought for an entire community of people. She bravely shared her story and gave so many people strength in their own; she made me braver, she gave me strength and hope when I could not. She quite literally saved my life — If not for her compassion in meeting me where I was, her kindness in sharing with me, and her generosity in wisdom, I would not have found the treatment that saved & changed my life to this day. She went beyond saving lives, she bettered them. She showed just how worthwhile, beautiful, and good it is. Even a life amongst illness and suffering, is so much more than it. She was truly a princess amongst it. An ever present goodness. I have found myself on the hands and knees of my soul in endless prayer for the many people you loved and lives you changed, and without the words. I keep repeating the same: that I am so thankful to have heard yours; to have held these so dearly since the day you said/wrote them, and hold them a little tighter now. "There are good days and bad days. Just keep holding on for the good days. They do come - even though sometimes they are few and far between." Holding on and fighting for you, and the many brave warrior souls I have known. Always. Thank you, Cheyanne.

  • 08/22/2023

    It was my greatest honor to care for Cheyenne and get to know her and her parents. Cheyenne was a very special soul and I was blessed to know her and keep up with her story. Praying peace that passes all understanding for Cheyanne, Rest easy in God's hands sweet girl. Loving prayers for her family. A special hug to Lori.

  • 08/22/2023

    I meet Cheyenne when she was six. She was so friendly and smart. I remember she liked soccer, animals and being with her family. Watching her college career begin here in Florida, always made me feel proud of her and her parents. Seeing her impact on the lives of so many people and leaving them with so much inspiration is absolutely remarkable. She will be missed but never forgotten. Her positive impact will forever live on.

  • 08/21/2023

    The time I got to spend with Chey & her family was cut way too short. My favorite memory of Chey is her explaining how she put a sticky note over her bellybutton prior to transplant that requested the surgeon leave her bellybutton alone in order for her to keep her bully button ring. The surgeon was baffled lol but he did as she asked! Even on her rough days, she made everyone around her smile. Having her on my assignment made me so much more excited to come to work. I will think of Chey & her family everytime I see chick-fil-a, garden, visit south Caroline, or eat garlic. Sending all my love and hugs to all missing her ❤️

  • 08/21/2023

    Cheyanne you will always have a special place in my heart! You and your mom helped Ashley and I so much ❤ You fought so hard and helped so many people with your love! I was heartbroken for your mom and family because looseing you is so very hard. I know that Ashley was there to hug you and you girls are free of the suffering your body's put you through. Your love will live on in our hearts always!

  • 08/20/2023

    I held Cheyanne in my arms when she was just three months old... healthy, happy baby. We couldn't imagine her journey. We didn't see her but a few times after that, but like so many, kept up with her in her later years through social media. She was a remarkable princess and inspiration to us all. Can only imagine a perfect Cheyanne meeting a perfect Tim! All our love to Silvino, Lori, and Sean.

  • 08/19/2023

    I've came back here several times to share a memory. The finality of sharing a memory is gut wrenching. Oh how I have prayed for so many years for this beautiful, sweet Angel to be free of pain and illness. She finally is. Just not how I prayed. I've known Chey since she was a young girl and when I close my eyes and see her, she is always smiling and always laughing. At a very young age she was SO smart ! So when she got sick she learned more about her illnesses than any doctor could have ever known. And she shared that knowledge with anyone it would help and advocated for herself and others. I loved her Etsy shop and will forever cherish my hats and scarfs. I will also forever cherish her books. And my Origami Owl pieces that she helped me choose from her collection. She was always so giving and loving. I will miss her terribly. One of my favorite memories of Chey was coloring the tips of her hair red for her! It was her "Wild" stage 🤣 And then my most favorite recent memory was attending her beautiful wedding reception. I enjoyed watching her and her family celebrate happiness and her true love with Silvino. Love you forever my beautiful friend Chey.

  • 08/18/2023

    The sweetest soul I have ever met! Cheyanne was always smiling even in the very tough times. As her Pediatrician in Florida, I admired her strength and resilience. She was an angel here on earth and now an angel in Heaven. My prayers are with her family. Anyone who knew Cheyanne was touched by angel! She has touched many lives in a short years on this earth. I love you Cheyanne. We will miss you! 💜 💕

  • 08/18/2023

    I just can't seem to find the words... Even as a newborn, Chey, was shining her beautiful light. The apple of her momma's eye. The blessing long waited for. She couldn't have been more perfect. God had a special purpose for her. She touched so many people, but none more than her family. I have never seen anyone with more faith and commitment to God than Lori and Cheyanne as they navigated life and Chey's illness. You both are truly and inspiration to me. Silvino, Lori and Sean my heart is broken for you all and you all remain in my prayers.

  • 08/18/2023

    I met Cheyanne during one of her AdventHealth Waterman stays and kept up with her on Facebook ever since praying for . She was such a positive bright light in my life and no doubt, she was a warrior. Love hugs and prayers for you all . God bless.

  • 08/17/2023

    I can't believe we met you and Cheyanne so many years ago in Deland. We had such an amazing chat and realized what a special person she was. I'm sorry we didn't see each other more often after that but following Cheyanne's story on fb showed what an amazing soul she was. We laughed and cried with her and we felt very close to all of you. Her memories are a blessing to all us. She will never ge forgotten-

  • 08/17/2023

    Cheyanne, Even though I didn't meet you until after your transplant, I am so glad that I had the opportunity to meet you and your family. It was my honor to care for you during your time with us on OTU, and I will miss your infectious smile and bubbly personality. Sending love and hugs to your family— you are all in my heart and thoughts.

  • 08/17/2023

    I met Chey through the chronic illness community. We had so many similar diagnosis's, the same, yet very different. When I begin needing help with my own chronic illness journey, Chey was right there to answer my questions and share her own experiences. I loved her voice and accent. I will continue to watch her YouTube channel just to hear it. Even when she was so sick and many times near death, those of you with chronic illness will understand, she fought hard and yet still managed to offer comfort for my hurt and others. Strangers flocked to her because of her love and compassion for those battling rare illness to be heard and seen. My own mom began to follow her and would often ask me "how's Hospital Princess?". Chey, I promise we were praying for you, and we will continue to keep your whole family and those close to you in prayer. Especially lifting up Lori, and Silvino! This man loved her like she absolutely deserved! I will think of you every single time I wear my Red/White Santa beanie and my GP/CIPO shirt. I am so very sorry for this tragic loss. I love you fighter girl. Go dance in Heaven, no pain, no suffering, no tears. All my love...

  • 08/17/2023

    I'm going to miss her physical presence so, so much. This is definitely the hardest thing I've faced in my life, but I'm very blessed that we made so many memories together for 8 years. Her beautiful wedding ceremony and reception to her loving husband Silvino, holidays (especially going to Christmas light shows, even a Safari one with all of us feeding camels and zebras!), birthdays, just hanging out talking or watching movies and shows, driving around the neighborhood in her family's golf cart, coloring (she colored with me because she loved me and knew I loved coloring, not because she actually liked it 😆), painting, hot air ballooning, laughing until we were crying, the list goes on. It's hard to pick one of them because there are literally hundreds of them. There's been so much joy in these years, all because of her. She exudes love and kindness. I won't even say past tense, because I feel her love around me 24/7. She is everywhere, in everything. I look around my apartment (which she helped pick out with her beautiful mom) and she's in pictures, blankets, coloring books, kitchen appliances, my cat Jack's collar and toys, jewelry, clothes, hats and scarfs she knitted for me... just so many physical items she has gifted me and my husband Brad over the years. But most importantly, she is in my soul and unlike physical items, that will last forever. She was an angel here on Earth and now she's an angel up above. She helped so many people from all walks of life, many of whom were going through the hardest and most painful times of their lives, during her time here on earth and I know she will continue to do so in Heaven. She is my strength and I will do my best to make her proud. My heart, love and prayers go out to husband Silvino, her mother Lori, her dad Sean and her fur babies Teddy, Weasley and Cara. Me and Brad will always be with you all in spirit and love. Thank you so much for everything. Words cannot express how grateful we are. We love you so much. Rest in beautiful peace, Chey. I love you, always. Thank you for the being the best sister friend anyone could ever have. Love, Denae, Brad and Jack ❤️

  • 08/17/2023

    Praying for healing for the family and all her friends. She was an Angel here on earth and now spreading her Angel wings in Heaven. Rest in eternal peace sweetness.

  • 08/17/2023

    I can remember when me and her uncle tom went up to South Carolina to visit in December we were able to talk laugh and play with teddy outside. I wish we lived closer to spend more time. I know your healed now, no more pain sorrow.

  • 08/17/2023

    I shall always remember you my sweetest Chey's. You have always been my Chey's. You were your mother's life saver. The mircle daughter. I tried to be around as often as i could. There you were with Jt, Travis, Tyler, KayKay and Colby hunting easter eggs. Playing Power Puff Girls with KayKay and Meema. Showing up after Soccer Games all sweaty. Laying in bed watching Meema read you a book. These are some of my earliest memories, that I hope will forever be implanted deep, to remeber. Other memories as you grew is your laughter and smiles in every vido message. You are the strongest person I have ever known. Living your life as normal as everyone else, when all the pain and discomfort was being hidden from most of us. I know your dancing, and yes singing now. God has you now. I really hope he knows how much he has allowed us this pain. You had a mindset on excellence. My prayers were specific my Chey's. He gave you his direction. I will forever regret not having my dance with you at your wedding. Seeing you becoming the healthy woman of your dreams. I guess it will be a bit before I see you again, save me a seat next to you so I can talk your ear off. I Love You! Until we meet again, Uncle Tommy

    So many emotions, still digesting that she has left us. During her Illness there was a stranger who approached Sean to tell him, his daughter would be healed. I remember Lori calling me and I cried and thanked God for this sign that they so desperately needed. That was many years ago and we all have been waiting anxiously for this miracle to happen. I talked with Lori in reference to this and she would say God is in control and maybe her healing would not be on this earth. I guess God had other plans for this Angel. She had completed her task here on earth. In her short life and with all her obstacles she has done more for others than many people in this world. Chey was the sweetest little girl. I remember Spending many Christmas parties at my sister Anita's house. I would tell Chey she looks just like Taylor Swift. This was when she was a natural blonde. She would say I wish with her cute little chuckle. She is a chip off the old block. A lot like her mother Intelligent, caring for others before herself and most importantly she loved Jesus! I know that there was a big celebration in heaven on August 12th for she has many loved ones there. We will miss you Chey but you have made your mark on our hearts 💕 that will be there forever!! Will see you in heaven when my day comes. Lori, you have been the most amazing mother ever! Chey needed you every step of the way. She had to have an amazing mother for her journey. May God bless you as you but the pieces of your heart back together. We love you very much and are here for you anytime. Aunt Lisa

  • 08/17/2023

    Cheyanne, you inspired me to stand up for myself, to advocate for myself through all my chronic health issues. You helped so many people, and I'm blessed to have been one of them. My thoughts and prayers go out to your husband,Mom, Dad, and all your friends. I miss you, Chey!!

  • 08/17/2023

    I have known Cheyanne for many years from a distance. I do remember when she was a young girl and attended first Baptist Umatilla with her family. But most recently have followed her life on Facebook, and been so blessed as she has endured many difficulties and yet she kept such a positive attitude. I loved watching her marry the love of her life. I loved reaching out to her through messenger to be an encouragement and she was the one who encouraged me when she responded. I know she will be sorely missed. We pray for you all as you adjust to her absence. Cling to the memories Cindy Christy.

  • 08/17/2023

    I was blessed to have known this most beautiful soul. She was brilliant. She was caring and compassionate, even in the midst of her own suffering. Her time here has come to an end, but her presence will continue to be felt in the many lives that she touched. If we could all just be a little like her, our world would be a better place. My prayers for the comfort and healing of her family, friends and fur babies. Fly high Cheyanne. 💕🙏🏽

  • 08/17/2023

    It's hard to find words that are worthy of someone as wonderful as Cheyanne. I'm lucky to have such a loving niece and my heart will always hurt that I didn't get to give her one last hug. We love you Chey, always have and always will. ❤️

  • 08/17/2023

    Cheyanne what is one of the first chronic illness friends that I made. She was and is such a beautiful soul with so much intelligence, and compassion. There were so many times that she helped me navigate the healthcare system and would reach out to me when ever I was in the hospital . It can be so very scary when you have so many health complications, but reading her blog and interacting with her via Facebook and text provided a great amount of comfort. When I was alone with my illness, in that no one related to what I was going through both online and in my immediate life. she really truly helped me through some of my most difficult times, when I was really struggling with my health. I really appreciated Cheyanne's respect that she had for animals and the environment, I really enjoyed her blog that had reviews on environmentally and allergen friendly products. Her blog that contains helpful tips and facts about rare diseases will continue to educate others, in addition to the children's books she wrote . She will continue to live on the hearts and minds of others, though she's be greatly missed . To this day I admire her ability to carry-on through life regardless of all of the complications she faced, she is a perfect example of how to navigate the complications of life but to remain joyful, Cheyanne had awareness of the complications but didn't let the complications take from the joy in life. She had the ability to always look for the good and to always be grateful regardless of how difficult something can be. That is some thing she did so naturally. I will forever cherish the Christmas ornament she gave me and the beautiful beanie and scarf that she knit, they are reminders of the beautiful soul that she was, and still is. I'm so very sorry for her passing. My heart and thoughts are with her family and friends as we are all saddened by her passing.

  • 08/16/2023

    Lori, I'm so sorry for your loss. You were a good mom and she loved you bigger than the sky. I wish I could be with you. My memories of Cheyenne is we shared the same birthday, sitting in church together, and staying at my apartment. She will be missed. I love you, Lori

  • 08/16/2023

    I was so blessed to know Cheyanne for almost 2 years. Her unwavering faith and enduring spirit was so amazing. As she looked on others living their lines and experiencing things she wish she could, she was never overcome with jealousy but rather was able to have genuine joy for others. She exuded love for her family and friends so much. One of the genuine, kind souls I have ever known. I am so sad for all of us but so happy for Cheyanne that she no longer has to deal with the brokenness of this world. I will never forget her impact on my life and others.

  • 08/16/2023

    I remember Cheyanne and I would talk about relationships and how funny boys could be. We sometimes would have 2-3 hour FaceTimes a night. I loved every moment I had with her as her friend. I love you cheyanne

  • 08/16/2023

    Cheyanne, I don't even know where to begin... I love you so much. This doesn't feel real. I really wish I would have told you how much I love you... Although we lost a little bit of our bond through time and distance, my love for you never faded in the slightest and never will. Like so many others, you made a huge impact on my life.. I'll never forget our memories.. they are forever a part of me.. so rooted into me. I'll always think of them and of you. I wish I could write them all out. There's so many. I'll miss talking about them with you.. Thank you for always being the selfless loving person you were. I will teach Malakai to be the same. and will make sure he knows how great of a cousin I had.. My #1 ❤️ I'll see you again one day and I can't wait.. 🕊️

  • 08/16/2023

    I never knew Cheyanne personally, but I know she made a difference in many people's lives. I am happy and grateful that my daughter, Ashley, had a friend like her. My heart goes out to her parents and husband. Rest in peace, Cheyanne. 💜

  • 08/16/2023

    I remember first meeting her in person in SC. She insisted we meet at her patio table outback because she knew how reactive to cats I was. When we finally moved back to SC. Silvino came and helped us unload some things at Chey's request. Such an amazing service centered couple. She was a loving individual and uniquely caring beyond normal measure. We shared in so many conversations over the years.....I can't imagine not having her to reach out to. . Her legacy still lives on in all the hearts and minds she touched. But there will never be a soul like her. She radiated so much light and loved fearlessly.. she was never bitter of her situation. I will miss her dearly and there's this emptiness that cannot be compensated since her departure. She was an angel on earth now in heaven doing the Lords bidding. We love and miss you Chey. But we know you've been called home with intent, and you're doing celestial work now above. Love Jennifer

    I had the blessing of connecting and meeting Chey online in 2013. We both had similar diagnoses and she was not just a wealth of information, but a friend. Despite all she had continually going on, which was so much, she always would ask me how I was and genuinely want to know about my life. She made a point to send cards, hand knit gifts, various medical supplies I needed, and let me know she was praying for me. She showed up. And, I know I'm one of many who could say this about her. I learned so much from Chey and will continue to live my life inspired by how she lived hers. Praying for her parents, husband, and all who loved her dearly, which I know was so many.

    Chey was the sweetest and funniest person. She IS my best friend, and my life will forever feel empty without her but a text message or a plane ride away. She loved her people deeply, and I was lucky to be one of those people. My world is forever a little darker without her physically here anymore. My heart and prayers go out to her family and friends who feel this immense loss. To have a friend like Chey is the biggest blessing in this lifetime. Cheyanne is my angel. I will always love her deeply.

    This wonderful lady I met many moons ago at Round Lake Elementary. She was so full of joy and life that it radiated to all she met. Then she fell sick and continued to shine even when everything was falling apart. I watched her grow as she moved away and blossomed to a lovely woman. She took on the world and I loved her fierce stance she took against her illness. I am so heartbroken for her momma and family. Lori, I love you so very much and I can't wait to wrap my arms around you.

    I never actually had the pleasure of meeting you, but Travis always talked so fondly of you. When we went to Florida and I got to meet memaw when I was pregnant with Christopher you were in the hospital after that I started following you on Facebook and you were just always so positive 💕

    Cheyenne was the sweet, soft spoken little girl next door. When I would see her outside she always had a smile. She was a lover of all animals. I remember she would laugh when her Rusty would run down to the muddy lake as soon as she and her mom would finish washing him. She made her mark in this world and I plan to be her neighbor again one day. 💗

    Chey was my cousin— to be truly honest.... There are no words I have yet to come across about Cheys passing. Nor words to describe the feeling of the pain that my heart feels for the loss of my dear cousin and even for my aunt . However I can say this with the Athan family. We all loved each other and being together . I think it was my early teens and I'd come in the side door and go to the sitting room of our Memaw and chey and Kayla and memaw would be in there playing I guess Power puff girls cause our memaw would play along with them they used to call me mojo Jo Jo . But looking at cheyanne and hearing my other cousin Kayla going back and forth which power puff girl she was and cheyanne just being like idc I'm just playing. That look of just enjoyment . From what I remember soccer was the thing until something I can't quiet remember but chey was topic when she couldn't be around and loved always regardless. I wish I was able to see her again 1 time after many years just wasn't enough but I can wait I'll see her again!!! i love you cheys. Love you aunt Lori. I'm thinking of you all.

    Cheyanne, Peter and I were grateful we got to know you and I'm sorry it didn't happen sooner. We are glad we got to experience your miracle with you. We sat with your mom and Silvino for a while all while they waited anxiously for you to be done in the OR. You were one of the nicest people and I wish we got a chance to experience more time outside the walls of the hospital. I will always remember joking about marriage and our "favorite" doctor. I know you'll be watching over me when I get my call. Thank you for being the person you are❤️ I will make sure to do all the things we talked about doing when you and I were well enough...Until we meet again...Kimberlin and Peter

    Cheyenne has been in our prayers since Lori and I connected thru HLH in 2019. I was able to visit with Cheyanne on a few occasions and am so thankful for the opportunity. Many hugs and prayers from Iowa

    Chey, you were such an inspiration to us. You were so positive during the transplant recuperation, and made it look so easy. We were so confident you and Rebekah would beat this and recover together. You never complained, and were so worried that you would scare rebekah. You made us laugh during the worst of times . We will always have our memories . I will never forget laughing until we cried in your room. You were such a strong woman. Your smile was so contagious. You were so loved by your Mom, Dad, Silvino, Teddy Graham and Weasley. I will miss our facetimes and visits in each other's room . I will miss watching the connection you had with your mom. I will continue to watch over her and care for her . We will love you until we meet again, sweet, beautiful girl ! Fly high and watch over your parents! Love, Allison and Rebekah

    When Cheyanne was younger she would love my chilli we always had at Christmas Day. She saw the beauty in everything. Heaven has gotten a bright gem now. She will always be my hero.

    When Cheyanne was younger they would come over on Christmas Day and always looked forward to Grandma's chilli. I really loved her smile and how she saw beauty in everything.

    Such a light! Cheyanne was one of the sweetest girls I know, even as a small child. She found a way to smile through all her trials. We will be praying for y'all to find peace through such an indescribable loss.

    My fondest memory with Cheyanne is when she and he mom came and spent the afternoon with us at Daytona Beach....a beach day with family all together seems taken for granted, but that was one of last times we were all together sharing a wonderful afternoon full of laughter and fun. It is a day I know we all enjoyed. It has taught me to cherish all moments with family, no matter how short.. Rest in peace sweetheart and please forgive me for not being there for you more in your life, Your loving cousin John.

    Rest easy my beautiful friend. You were such a blessing in my life and I'll always cherish the friendship we had. I miss you and love you so much. Sending all my love to Lori, Sean and Silvino. 💜

    You are a beautiful soul, and I thank God for making you who you are. We all love you so very much.

    Chey was my cousin - She was always so much fun to be around growing up. When I got pregnant with my daughter Parker she made the most beautiful blanket for her. Parker still uses that blanket today at 2 years old. Thank you Chey for being such a bright light to everyone you were around.
