Hell...


Abby was adopted from Guatemala. At three years old, she was diagnosed with a high-risk, aggressive form of Leukemia. Certain genetic complications have put her chance of surviving the treatment at about 20%.
"Hell”… that is the word Abby’s doctor used to describe the 60 days of treatment that starts on Wednesday. As Christians, we cringe a little to compare anything in this life to the real Biblical Hell, but we understand what the Doctor is trying to communicate. This is a life-threatening, miserable time of suffering for Abby. Her smallest chance of survival will come during this phase of chemotherapy, and if she does get through it, she may have to do it twice.

Over the next few days leading up to her first treatment, we’ll be asking you to consider various ways to prayer, and ways to include more people in Abby’s prayer support. Here are a couple for today:

**Would you remember to pray for Abby on Wednesday, the 14th as she begins this new phase?
**Add Abby to any prayer lists, prayer chains or websites you have access to.

I am praying for her and her family. Would you pray for them too?
Please feel free to copy the above message to your blog, it was written by Abby's parents.

You can find more about Abby here, on her family blog.
You can add a Praying for Abby button (like the one below) to your blog. Just visit Abby's website and copy the code. It is super easy and could lead to others praying for this little girl that is fighting for her life.

I KNOW God can and does perform miracles...
pray for a miracle for this sweet family!!!
