Sad News

I received some sad news this morning. The six year old daughter of some old friends has come out of remission. Lauren has leukemia. She fought so hard to overcome it last time and I know by the grace of God, she can fight it off again.

Lauren's family has struggled a lot over the last couple of years with several major medical events, but they're strong and they have a lot faith to get them through. They also have a strong family. Lauren's Aunt Kara maintains a website to solicit prayers and financial help for Lauren and her family. She posts regular updates and even the occasional picture.

Please visit Lauren's website at If you can help, it would be much appreciated. If you can spread the word, that's great too.

I've added a link for Lauren on the sidebar so you can easily find it in the future.

Thanks so much,

I understand. I know they appreciate your prayers and support in that way too. You can post words of encouragement to them through their website. At least then they know their not alone in this. It really is sad, children shouldn't have to suffer this kind of pain.
