HOT SPRINGS, AR -- Three weeks ago, at just 18 months old, Willow Grace lost her life in a Hot Springs fire. Now her family is hoping to help others. 

"It's very painful," says Willow's mother Brandi. "I want the entire world to know, I want them to know my daughter."

Through the hurt, the pain and the loss, Brandi says she has found inspiration.

"She was very special to us, she was our whole world, and I want everyone to know her like I did," she tells us.

Her hope is to be there for other victims of house fires, not only with clothes or toiletries, but also with a shoulder to cry on, or by simply being there for people. 

"They will have someone to talk to who's been there, who knows their pain, not just someone who can say, 'Oh I understand,' and they really don't, they have no clue, or 'Hey, it's going to be okay,' because it will probably never be okay. We just have to find a way to cope better."

Brandi will continue to look for ways to help others with Willow's memory always in her heart. 

A fundraiser is being held Sunday for Willow's family, called Willow's Wish.

"It will feel great to be able to be around so many people that care," Brandi said.
