Please pray for Abby

***Update**** I just went to this family blog and Abby is in remission! Praise God!!

Hello all, I copied this from my friend Melinda's blog. Another family afflicted with Cancer. Please pray!

Does everyone follow the Riggs family blog? If you are not familiar with this amazing family.... check out their blog. They are a diverse family and full of love. They have 4 biological children, 2 children from Guatemala, and a beautiful daughter from Ethiopia. One of their Guatemalan children, Abby, was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. Bless her little heart. She is precious!Abby has some pretty intensive chemo treatments 1-4 times per week for the next 5 MONTHS.... This means lots of time at the hospital, lots of time needing to be spent helping Abby.... a lot less time for making meals and cleaning houses, etc...You can read more about what is going on at the Rigg's blog. For those of us who love this family and don't live close, it is hard not being able to do much.But here is the perfect opportunity.If you are interested in sending or giving money for meals, that is welcomed. Either contact Amy to send the payment, or pay via paypal. (Directions on how to do this below) A few of these friends in OKC area are going to be making frozen meals at Supper Thyme to give to the family. (One meal to serve 7 is approximately $25) If you live local and are interested in delivering a frozen or refrigerated meal to them at the hospital, either message Amy at or leave a comment at her blog.Directions to give via paypal: Once you are logged into your account, click Send Money. In the "To" box, type in my email address - Type in the amount, and then click services/other, and then click continue. Wah lah.
Would you also consider posting this on your blog to help us spread the word??? THANK YOU SO MUCH! This is what the church is all about. Taking care of our sister and brother in Christ in their time of need. Please continue to pray for this family as well as they all pull together to help Abby out. This puts so much stress on the entire family and they really need our prayers right now!
