little lana

please hear the story of some very close friends of our family....
the week before christmas shannon took lana to the doctor for some very minor, yet peculiar symptoms that were seeming to stick around. three days later she was sitting outside the hospital room with her husband learning that their baby girl was now in a battle for her life. lana was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma. it is in her lungs, in her bones, infiltrating her entire body like the sick little parasite that cancer is. lana is 3, she is the only child, the entire world for shannon and brit. please please pray for lana and healing. she is SO precious. i know it is so easy to brush this aside when you hear stories like this because you may not know these people from the thousands of others who are diagnosed with cancer each day. but i ask you, since you know me, that you know lana, and her story. please pray for her and her family. she can fight this, but not on her own. i can't imagine experiencing this, that one day everything is fine, life is going on as normal, and in a split second the entire world is crashing around you when the most precious thing you have must now fight, hard, for her life. if only we could fight for her..... please please pray that God will take this battle from her and heal her from within and that she will live a long, happy, cancer free life.
thank you for praying and for caring


  1. Hey Elizabeth. I don't know you, but I went to high school with Travis and just stubled on your blog. As a HUGE believer in the power of prayer, I will be praying for Lana and her family. I can't even begin to imagine what that must feel like.

  2. Liz- I will be praying for the healing of little Lana. God is good and can heal all. Keep us updated. I love you!

  3. Thanks for sharing!! I am praying for precious Lana! God is the great physician and even though cancer sucks (especially stage iv neuroblastoma) God can heal her!!
