DAISY MERRICK Daughter Of Pastor Britt Merrick Of REALITY CHURCH Loses Her Battle With Cancer

Britt Merrick, pastor of Reality Church in California, and father of Daisy Merrick, whose battle with cancer as a five year-old was made public and touched the hearts of thousands through her dad’s very personal blog prayfordaisy, shared the sad news last night on twitter that his beautiful daughter had lost her battle with cancer and has gone on to be with Jesus.

Britt tweeted:

Pray for Daisy ‏@prayfordaisy

At 2:40am this morning our sweet Daisy went to be with Jesus. Christ is with us as the God of all comfort.

In case you don’t know who Britt Merrick is, a little intro is in order.  Britt Merrick first gained popularity as the son of legendary Surf Board maker Al Merrick, founder of Channel Islands Surf Boards who makes surf boards for some of the worlds best surfers.  Britt gained a following after leaving a senior level in his dad’s company to become a pastor, planting Reality Church in California.  But his popularity soared after the tragic story of his 5-year-old daughter being diagnosed with cancer spread around the world after Merrick started a blog chronicling his daughter’s battle called  Also releasing a book called “Big God.”  Ever since Christians near and far have rallied around Daisy and the Merrick family, sharing in the highs and lows.  Over the last 3 years since Daisy’s diagnosis her cancer had gone into remission resurfaced and gone into remission again.

But a few days ago Britt Merrick shared an emotional video message with his church announcing that Daisy’s cancer is back for a third time and this time the outlook is not good.  In the video he also said that he will take an extended and indefinite leave of absence from his pastoral duties.  Our hearts go to out to Daisy and the entire Merrick time during this difficult time.
