pray for Emma

**10-9-09 UPDATE** Emma passed away at 1:30am this morning. She is with Jesus now. No more pain. No more tears.

***********************************************************************

**10-7-09 UPDATE**  Emma is returning home from the hospital and hospice care will take over from here. The latest tumor in her brain has proved to be extremely aggressive and the doctors have decided there is nothing further that they can do.
Join me in lifting up Emma's sweet family to the only One who can heal their broken hearts - Henry, Lauren and little brother Jeremy.

Psalm 34:18
“The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

Please pray for Emma.

I had the pleasure of meeting Emma for the first time in the Spring of 2007. She had recently been diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer) which had also spread to her lungs.

The pictures in the slideshow below were taken in May '07...



I got to spend time with Emma again in November 2008. Another tumor had just been discovered in her lung. These pictures were taken the day prior to her lung surgery..



This week, a brain tumor was discovered in Emma's frontal lobe. She will be going in for brain surgery on Monday.

Please pray for Emma and her sweet family!!!

Pray for a miraculous outcome in the face of a scary prognosis!

Pray that they would receive comfort from Jesus like never before!
