Prayers for Emily

Please pray for Emily and her family as adorable Emily recently started treatment for leukemia. This incredible family has the best attitude going into this process, and are blessed to have a strong faith and wonderful support from family and friends to lean upon.

You can specifically pray right now that Emily does not experience any fever or infection in between the chemo treatments and that their family continues to have stamina and positivity throughout.

Kids with Down syndrome have an 80% greater chance than typical kids of developing leukemia, but the good news is that kids with Down syndrome also have a higher likelihood of overcoming the disease.

Although it is never fun to hear of a child being diagnosed with something like this, it really hits home when the child is the same age as my own little boy and lives just up the highway.

Kelli and her husband also have an older son and are pregnant with their third child. I met her through Chase's blog and discovered that she lived closeby. Her story is at http://livinglifewithes.blogspot.com/ - Click on the button to visit Emily's website and learn more about their journey!
