For Tazz Jones, seeing her five-year-old daughter Maliyah spend time with her friend and fellow cancer patient, Madelina DeLuca, 2, is always heartwarming.
And one day in early May, the mom captured a moment between the young girls that she had to share on Facebook. Staring out a window at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, the children, who are both bald from treatment, are seen locked in a close embrace.

"The perfect example of love," Jones captioned the touching image. Thanks to a few local news outlets, the picture has since been shared thousands of times.
“[Madelina] and Maliyah clicked as if they knew one another for some time,” Jones told ABC News of the girls. "I really want this picture to be seen all over the world because it expresses so many things: friendship, sickness, love, comfort & support to name a few."

Maliyah is currently battling Stage 4 Neuroblastoma, which she was first diagnosed with at the age of two. Madelina was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in November. On May 14, her mother posted a photo of the toddler wearing a shirt that read "Last Day of Chemo."
