Please pray for Kate!

Hello friends:

I'm asking today that you please lift up sweet Kate McRae in prayer.  She has just recently relapsed for the THIRD time with a brain tumor.  I have been following Kate's story since her first tumor and I can't tell you how heartbreaking this is for them.  She had surgery on Wednesday to remove the tumor and is now in ICU recovering, waiting for a bed on the oncology floor.  Please pray for her healing, from both the surgery and this terrible cancer.  Please pray for her spirit, and for the hearts of her parents who once again have to walk this unbearable road.

New Prayer Request

Hi all:

I received a message requesting prayers for a young boy named Hunter VanAllen.  I am posting his story from his CaringBridge page here, as well as the link to that page (click on his name).  Please lift him and his family up in prayer during this incredibly difficult journey.

This story is about a healthy, happy, young boy named Hunter VanAllen.  Hunter turned 8 years old on October 28, 2013.  He is a little brother to his sister Victoria (Tori) and a big brother to Jeffrey.  Hunter is also a big fan of Spiderman.  He was very active in his favorite sport, football until he stepped on a Mesquite Tree thorn shortly after his birthday and this is where his story begins.  The thorn broke off into his foot and had to be surgically removed.  He spent numerous days in the hospital, as there was an infection.  Hunter had a reactIon to the medication he was put on and it caused lung damage to the point that he is now on life support (ECMO) and has been in the hospital since Dec 6, 2013.  A recent biopsy shows Hunter needs a lung transplant for both lungs and will have to be transferred to Nationwide Childrens Hospital In Columbus Ohio to have this done as there is no place in Arizona that does lung transplants for Pediatrics.  This is just a short version of Hunter's story.  I have added all the updates as things have progressed regarding Hunter's journey in the journal section of this site...On behalf of all of Hunter's family we thank you for reading and following Hunter's story and for praying for Hunter and the family during this time.  Thank you so much for your prayers, love and support.

Need Prayers?

Do you, or does someone you know or know of, need prayers?

One of my big goals in 2014 is to revive Safe Haven and get prayers flowing again for those in need.

Please post prayer requests in the comments section.  Provide page links if the person who needs prayers has a CaringBridge site, blog or Facebook page.
