Finley Boyle who was the 3 year old who suffered massive brain damage last month when she underwent a routine dental procedure. She died Friday with her family by her side, said Kenneth L. Zeri, president and chief professional officer of Hospice Hawaii.

Zeri also released a statement saying "There are few greater privileges in life than to accompany someone on their end-of-life journey, providing comfort and support not only to that person but also to their loved ones," the statement said. "As with all of our patients, we were truly blessed to be able to be there for The Boyle Family and for Finley at the end of her journey."

It is confirmed that the Boyle family will sue the dentist responsible for allegedly giving Finley improper doses of the wrong drugs and allegedly leaving the child unattended for almost 30 minutes leading to permanent brain damage, her cardiac arrest and ultimately to her death.

CNN reported that Ashley Boyle, Finley's mother, stated that she first took Finley to the dentist in November of 2013. She was told Finley needed four root canals and six fillings. They went back in December to have the root canals done, and this is where the nightmare began.

The family has set up a fund for Finley to help the family with medical expenses and final arrangements for their little girl. They have raised more than $37,000 dollars so far, but are expecting to exceed that in medical bills alone.

The Boyle and Puleo families wishes to thank everyone for their support and prayers through these devastating events. There is a Pray for Finley Facebook page where those following the story can leave condolences and words of encouragement for the families affected by the tragic death of their little girl.

If you would like to donate funds to Ashley Boyle at this time you can email prayforfinley@gmail.com as to how to go about doing so. Since the onset of this tragedy Ashley has been out of work. All funds will be used to help pay for bills and living cost during this tragic time of mourning.

You can also contact the family through the Pray for Finley Facebook page about purchasing T-shirts for the toddler so tragically gone before her time.
