A family in Kirtland, Ohio noticed a strange figure in a photograph with their daughter earlier this year. Erin Potter is seen in the photo with a ghostly figure beside her. Cleveland's 19 Action News interviewed the Potter family regarding their experience.
At the time of the photograph, Erin was battling leukemia. In the photo, Erin is pictured running through the yard with sparklers. Next to her is a red figure that some people believe is the Virgin Mary. The Potter family also thinks the figure is the Virgin Mary.
Erin was diagnosed with leukemia in February 2007. During her battle with cancer she has went through many bone marrow transplants. At the time the photo was taken, she was about to undergo her second transplant.
"I know she's not alone, I know we are not alone and people who don't want to believe it, that's okay. Whatever happened, you know something powerful and special was there with us. I definitely have my moments when I'm falling apart and I'm terrified and I literally grab my phone and I stare at that picture." Erin's father Kevin Potter said.
