Please pray for the repose of the soul of our dear friend 13 year old Spencer. We spent many weeks with him at St. Jude’s Hospital in Memphis TN as he battled leukemia (ALL) and we battled a brain tumor (medulloblastoma) with our 12 year old son - we are recovering slowly.
His family was affected by Katrina, had to move, he was diagnosed with ALL the week of the storm. He was one of the toughest kids I ever met fighting through bone marrow transplants, the awful chemo, remission, relapse, another transplant, and finally fighting until the very end with his brave parents at his side. They never gave up, their faith never waivered, their strength was unimaginable as the odds and options declined.
God bless them all and give them the strength and courage to get through this most difficult time in their lives. May their family be consoled by the love and support of family and friends and God’s mercy and compassion. Amen.
