Chloe's Journey

Nessa asked me to add Chloe to our blog and prayer list...it my honor and privilege to do so! Chloe is a 7 year old little gal who was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma awhile back. She received several different treatments, including a bone marrow transplant. Scans have been done on a regular basis and all have come back clear...until recently. Unfortunately, the last scan result was not what was expected and her parents received that much dreaded news...the cancer is back and has spread to her liver and back into her bone marrow. My heart just breaks for her and her family...I don't understand these things...can't even wrap my mind around it. God is the only thing that brings any kind of comfort during times like this. A friend had updated the Carepage with this:
I am so grateful to KNOW without a shadow of a doubt that GOD IS ON THE THRONE and nothing surprises Him. He has prepared Michele, Nathan, Chloe and Trinity for a time such as this. We, those who love and support them, can offer the greatest gift by lifting them up to The Father.
And that is what I am asking all of you Gus' Gang readers to do...pray for Chloe and her family.

I just love the photo above! Those bright eyes are just captivating...makes me think about what little warriors these kids are to endure all the hardships they face. Seriously, they seem to always be smiling...I think there is a lesson in that for all of us.....

You can visit Chloe's Carepage for regular updates and to leave encouraging comments for her and her family.

Thank you so much. Chloe really is in a great deal of pain and I know her parents are doing everything they can to cope. I'd give anything to take some of their pain away if i could but I know that God will do it for me. Our whispers in his ear will not go unheard.
