I recently got back in contact with one of my friends from high school, Tammy. How fun it is to talk about old times and hear about all of the changes that have happened in the past 20 (wow, really 20?!?) years! But this conversation was different, the majority of our catching up was hearing about the recent diagnosis of her 6 year old son, Christian, with a rare form of cancer. Her precious "tow-headed" son was diagnosed with Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma - a rare cancer of the salivary gland - in November. He has already undergone surgery to have the tumor removed and is heading to FL on Sunday to undergo two months of treatment.
You hear these stories, but to know someone your age with children the same ages as your own - it really hits home.
So, I'm asking you...my friends, family and anyone else that happens upon this....please pray for Christian and his family. FYI - He has asked to be baptized at his church on Sunday before they leave that afternoon. So sweet!
Please pray for their safe travel to and from Florida, for Christian to handle the treatments with ease, for the treatment to be successful and for his family to have strength through this separation and trying time.
