Prayers for Anna!

We got some very sad news two days ago! A long time friend of the family's little girl was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) on October 19th!

 As a parent, I can't imagine anything more terrifying and heartbreaking - all my prayers are with them! :( But God is good - and He has a plan (even when we don't understand) and He is with Anna and her family!

So this is Anna!

Isn't she beautiful?
She's 8 years old. She loves school, her friends and gymnastics!

She's even a Level 4 Competitive Gymnast and trains 15 hours a week!
How cool is that?


She has started chemo and is in for a long ride,
but she's determined and so full of life!

I'll be posting updates about Anna but please check out her website at annasfans.org!
It's still under construction, as this has all happened so quickly but keep checking back! She loves when people sign her guestbook! :)

Your prayers are very much appreciated!

I'm currently brainstorming ways to do a "blog" fundrasier to raise money for Anna and the Brashear family! Does anyone have any experience with this type of thing? or any ideas? :) I'd love to hear them!!

I'm also hoping to whip up a special hospital gown to send her way as well! :) I hope that makes those hospital visits a little happier!

Please pray for this sweet little girl and her family! 

*On a side note - I also can't express how great it is to have this little group of "blog friends" - to share my life with! The good, the bad & the ugly. Thanks guys, I love y'all! :) Aww.

  4. I will be praying for Anna...our family has a leukemia survivor in the mix! Taylor (my husband's cousin's daughter) was diagnosed two days after her 3rd birthday...she is now 7 and in remission! PRAISE GOD! My prayer will be that Anna has complete healing throughout her body and that her treatments go smoothly.
