This is one of those posts that has weighed heavy on my heart. Before I started typing tonight, I warned my husband that there would be tears involved in this one!
I would like to share a little girl’s journey with you that has broken my heart. I stumbled upon a blog several weeks ago. My husband was out of town and I was up late looking on pinterest. Pinterest eventually led me to thisyearslovewilllast.com. I never imagined how this blog would affect me and how my heart would break for this family. If you know me, you know that I am a softy. For some reason, God has either cursed me or blessed me with the ability to feel someone else’s pain. Literally, I can sit and cry with a complete stranger over their hardships! I’m trying to toughen up!:)
The little girl’s name is Reese. She has reddish hair (hence “ginger fight”) She is precious, beautiful, spunky, and she has a brain tumor. Her story hits close to home for me. My nephew was diagnosed a little over a year and half ago with a brain tumor. We had to watch him endure brain surgery, radiation, chemo and a long battle back to get healthy. He is still not back to normal, but He is one amazing and awesome young man. He is one of my heroes. And we are so blessed that his prognosis is good.
Reese went through brain surgery and chemo. Last week she threw up and her mom took her to the ER. What they thought would be a routine visit turned into something totally different. They discovered that the tumor was growing and that the chemo did not work. When I heard this, I cried myself to sleep that night. I begged God to heal this sweet little girl! I cannot even imagine how hard this was on her parents. That thought is also devastating to me. As a parent, my heart goes out to them. I just don’t know how you deal with such news.
Reese is scheduled to go through another brain surgery and more aggressive chemo. My prayer tonight and every night until she is better, is that God would heal her. That He would give her strength. I pray that her parents would have strength, peace, and that God would comfort them during this very difficult time. I am asking for everyone that reads this to please pray for this precious baby girl. I believe in miracles, and I am begging God to perform a miracle!
