    My cousins (on my husband's side) have a five-year-old little girl who was recently diagnosed with leukemia. She started chemo late last week, which has been really hard on her; she's having a hard time understanding what is going on, why she is so sick, why she can't go to kindergarten (she was SO excited for this), and why she can't see her friends. The prognosis is good, but she's still expected to stay in the hospital for at least four months.

    Please keep her and her parents in your prayers and thoughts. Also say a special little prayer for her 3-year-old brother. The little guy doesn't quite understand what is going on and is upset he can't see his sister or his parents whenever he wants.

    Thank you.

    There is a book by Patricia Pollaco called "The Lemonade Stand." It's about a girl who has Lukemia and how the class rallies around for her. They start a "Lemonade Club" based on how the teacher always said, you can have lemons or make lemonade. This club was about how they could provide support to this girl and for each other. They find out their teacher also has cancer. They show up to her wedding all wearing yellow. It's a beautiful story and based on a true story.

    I will definitely keep your family in my prayers. My daughter just had a scare with cancer but after second biopsy she does not have it.

    Thanks for the prayers, everyone!!

    wdw, prayers and good thoughts are definitely what they need now. :)

    Matt, I'm so sorry to hear about the scare with your daughter, but I'm thrilled that doctors found out she doesn't have cancer!

    cutnglue, thanks for that book suggestion. I'll have to pass that on.
