Lifting Up Sweet Carolyn
This is a sticky post that I will leave up for the next several days.

Praying for Carolyn
*Up-date November 22
Carolyn tolerated her surgery well and is recovering from the procedure. However, the surgery was not as successful at eliminating the cancer as we had hoped. Please continue to pray that her doctors will be led to the treatment that can provide a cure. We still pray for miracles.

I'm asking all of my blogging friends to pray for this precious little, twelve-year-old girl. Her name is Carolyn--Her mother Adrianne is in this picture with her. Her dad, Jeff is my nephew. Carolyn has a younger brother, Jacob. They live in the Houston, Texas area.

Carolyn has a very rare form of cancer that she has been battling for over two years. For several months she was "cancer-free." However, it returned with aggression about the time school started this year. She will have surgery tomorrow, November 21. This is not the first surgery she has had since the beginning of this journey. This surgery is, of course, a very serious point in her treatment.

Carolyn has fought this battle with great courage and faith. Her family has fought valiantly along with her. However, it has been a long and hard journey. She, her parents, and her younger brother would appreciate your prayers. I am praying for miracles. peace, and strength. Please join me in lifting Carolyn and her family up.

1 Thessalonians 5:17
Pray continually.

How impressed I am with Carolyn. Wow--I could learn a lot from her and her family. It's amazing how happy she looks in the picture and how much strength is apparent in her eyes and that of Adrians'. We will keep praying because I know God has the best plan for her. Thanks for reminding me of things that are really important. I love you! Holly
