There's nothing that can compare to a mother's love.
As we reported, My So-Called Life actor Wilson Cruz revealed that his mother's stepsister Brenda Lee Marquez McCool was one of the 49 victims who died in the massacre at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, FL.
The two-time cancer survivor went with her 21-year-old openly gay son, Isaiah Henderson.
According to the Brooklyn native's sister-in-law Ada Pressley, McCool actually stepped in front of gunman Omar Mateen to protect Isaiah.
