Prayers needed for Julia!!

Dear friends, I received this upsetting email this evening and I am just speechless. This family offered encourgment and insight on China as we were preparing for Linzhi Rose. All I can say is...PRAY for her. I know the Lord can heal her, I believe that will all my heart. I am just so upset for her and her family. Frankly, I am tired of CANCER! Within 3 months, I am praying for 3 people suffering from Cancer. Lindsay, Diane and now Julia. I must go pray. ..Below is an email from her aunt.

Thank you friends for your prayers. The bone marrow biopsy and spinal tap testing from today are negative. We praise God that the Leukemia has not spread to these areas. Julia started her first Chemo today and should be able to go home tomorrow afternoon. She will have Chemo once a week at Children's Memorial Hospital. We are not sure yet for how long.

It is hard to be sad around Julia....she is so sweet and always has a smile on her face! Her beautiful spirit keeps us staying positive!

Thank you once again for your prayer covering. Jill and Brian have been through so much in their short marriage after losing their little boy at birth several years ago and then losing mom to Cancer last year. They really need God's strength and comfort now more than ever.

Love to all,

My heart breaks for this family. I am with you-I am sick of cancer. I know of several right now in the fight of there lives. I personally know two families that have multiple family members battling cancer-one is a good friend of ours, he and his 5 year old are battling cancer. Will be keeping all that suffer in our prayers.
