It’s been a long time since I posted a prayer request, but tonight Kayleigh’s precious kitty cat friend, Sawyer is in need of you prayers. Sawyer has a different type of brain cancer than Kayleigh’s, but it is a persistent bugger. My friend Jamie, Sawyer’s mom, posted an update this morning. I’m pasting the entire thing below. Watching Kayleigh’s friends battle is a difficult thing. I know what Jamie’s heart feels like right now. I know what it’s like to have to hold it together because your child needs hope and strength and they draw that from you. I know that fear of the unknown.
I also know that our prayer warriors can absolutely move mountains, because we serve and Almighty God. So friends, tonight, storm heaven for Sawyer.
From Jamie …
11 months ago my entire world changed. I always knew I was meant for great things.. I thought I’d be famous or rich or solved world hunger. However I never imagined I’d get to be a mother to a real live super hero. I thought the first time I had to tell people that Sawyer had cancer was hard but I’m finding it even more difficult to let everyone know that we got some devastating news yesterday. Super Sawyer’s cancer as reoccurred already. She has 1 tumor growing and 2 new questionable spots. She is currently getting a spinal MRI and a lumbar puncture to see if it has spread into her spinal fluid. Until we get results back from that we are unsure of what course of treatment we will take. Her oncologist and neurosurgeon feel as though we need to be aggressive so she will be having brain surgery at Le bonheur hospital tomorrow morning to resect as much of the tumor as possible. We feel your prayers around us and I know they help so please be praying for us! Sawyer is handing all in stride as usual and I am in awe of her strength.
2 Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. 3 If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important.
Verse 2 is awesome, but I love verse 3. There is perspective to be had there. Indeed, none of us is too important to help another. Thank you for standing with us. Because of people like you, no one has to fight alone.
