Heartbroken

Today I am absolutely heartbroken for a dear friend and her family.

They have just heard that their little boy relapsed again (a second time). He has leukemia (just like Bianca had). During his initial treatment before he relapsed the first time he just had the toughest time. If there was a side effect or if there was an allergic reaction he pretty much got that. And then he relapsed before finishing treatment. Shortly after he received a bone marrow transplant from his little brother (last year) and up to recently things have been going well. He has the most gorgeous curly hair, he recently started school (about a year later after he was going to) which he absolutely loves. He is just a typical 6 year old little boy. Then he started getting some worrying symptoms - sore legs, being lethargic, nose bleeds. And now (16 days before Christmas) they heard that he relapsed again.

I'm not sure what treatment options they will be looking at, but this is just so incredibly heartbreaking. They've been walking this journey since 2007.

Cancer totally sucks.

Please can I ask that you keep this family in your prayers and thoughts!
