Danielynn Birkhead is about to lose another relative — and it’s someone the eight-year-old barely had the chance to know.
Virgie Arthur — the late Anna Nicole Smith’s mother— is suffering from a rare and incurable form of cancer, and on her death bed, she’s pleading with Larry Birkhead for a final visit with her granddaughter, a new report claims.

There’s been tension between the ill 63-year-old and Larry since Anna’s death in 2007 — but now Danni’s grandmother’s final wish is for the two to settle their differences so she can see the little girl one last time.
A source tells 'Radar,' “Virgie has been sick for a very long time. Larry occasionally sent her photos, but hasn’t allowed visitation because there is a lot of bad blood with her.”

Anna Nicole’s late father, Donald Hogan, passed away in 2009 without seeing Danni before his death, the source adds.
Virgie reportedly hopes Larry will have a change of heart — as the little girl is slowly losing all ties to her late mother.
“It would be wonderful, but so far nothing has happened,” the source laments. “Dannielynn’s growing up and will want to know about her mama’s family.”
