Dawn Smith, as a little girl, was very bright and always succeeded in putting smiles on anyone's face.
She loved role-playing with her teddy bears, helping her mother plant flowers in their beautiful garden, and spending time with her hero, who was her father. 

Unfortunately, all that changed when she was diagnosed with a deadly illness, at a very early age. She hung onto her faith, desperately hoping that there was still a slim chance that she'd get healed. Although, being told a few years later at fourteen, that her illness was now incurable, the little faith she held on to had shattered into millions of pieces. She was now left with the idea that there was no God, or if there was one, then He must not love or care for her.

So, she changed her views on life, and hated it. But then, an unlikely boy comes into her life and change everything. Will it be for the better or for the worse?

One of my siblings was diagnosed with leukemia in 2006. He's fine now, but I don't think any of us really thought kids could get cancer until then...
Awkward sentence. "Than I" doesn't work. Try splitting the ideas up and use active verbs. i.e.. "It' s worse in this case because my dad battled leukemia and lost. He fought it for a year an died when I was six"

It happens a lot and I wonder why? Some would get healed while some wouldn't see healing.

It sounds like a crisis of faith, but abandoning God is not good. I'll keep reading. I'm sure God hasn't abandoned her, no matter what where thinks at this juncture.
