Pray for Hannah and Her Family!

Remember the little girl I asked you to send a card to for Christmas? Well, I have been following her Caring Bridge page. Here is what it says about her...

Hannah is 4 yrs old and was diagnosed in late October 2008 with a rare and aggressive cancerous brain tumor called glioblastoma multiforme. She has had 2 surgeries to remove the tumors. She has been in therapy to work on her walking, which has been effected by the tumor. She has frequent headaches from the pressure on the brain. She is on steroids to help with the inflammation, which is causing her to gain weight rapidly. The doctors had given Hannah 2-3 months to live without treatment and approximately 11 months with radiation. She needs a miracle! Hannah's father's name is Darin and she has two older siblings - Brittany and Jordan. She has 3 sets of grandparents, 2 sets of great-grandparents and a large extended family and supportive church family. Her mother, Chris, passed away several years ago from cancer. Please pray for the family as they deal with cancer in the family once again.

Here is todays post written by her Daddy.

Well--Very tough writing today. The MRI showed the tumor has grown over the last few weeks, even with the treatments.Even the small areas have shown growth & they were the areas that should have responded first. So, today was Hannah's last treatment. We are going to enjoy the good days we have left with Hannah. Everything is now in God's hands. Please pray for our family & especially for a miracle. Darin

Please pray for little Hannah and her family.
