DAMN LEUKEMIA!!!!!



Leukemia has struck yet another member of our Ds community. But little does it know what it is up against. Little Emily is one tough cookie with parents who have a strong faith in God and a huge army across this nation and beyond who are already praying for her. Just like Ella before her diagnosis, Emily's doctor has been watching her blood closely for a few months because it started to show some anomolies. She frequently had low platelets and in the last month or so, her Dr. started to see some leukemia cells showing up in her blood. Another bone marrow biopsy was done yesterday and it showed that there were now enough leukemia cells present to officially diagnose her with AML (the same type of leukemia that Ella has). She will be admitted to the hospital on thursday to get her central line put in and then she will start chemo on friday.

Oh how I wish this precious Angel didn't have to go through this, but I am so thankful that her parents have such a positive attitude about it. It truly makes all the difference in the world. Please go to her blog and read the amazing post that her mother did in regards to this new journey they are about to set out on. You will be amazed at her faith. http://livinglifewithes.blogspot.com/ Please let this family know that you are there to support them. I can't tell you how much it helps me to have so many people supporting us!!

PLEASE PRAY FOR A SMOOTH START FOR EMILY THIS WEEK AS IT WILL BE THE HARDEST!! Isn't she just the most beautiful little girl you have ever seen?



Can anyone either help me with or tell me how to make a button? I want to get this face out there for everyone to pray for!!

Sorry to hear about another family!!! :( Very scary! I'm sure Ella is an inspiration to them! Hugs and love to both your family and theirs!

I'm so sad to hear this. I wish so many little ones (and big folks, too!) didn't have to go through stuff like this.

She is gorgeous! Prayers for Emily too...they will beat this just as gracefully and courageously as Zoey did and as Ella is...they are fighters, our little angels are!

Definitely bummed to read Kelli's post last night.
We will be praying and adding the button when someone gets the code out.
Thankful for all you moms that have been on her road and can help them through the tough times.
