If you're like me, you see tons of things filter through your facebook feed, asking for "Prayers for Baby Abigail" and so forth. I tend not to "like" or share those things, because so often they are too far removed to have any idea if they are legitimate or not.
In this case, however, the cause is very close to my heart —- too close for comfort —- as the child involved is part of my extended family. Joshua was diagnosed with a rare and 100% terminal form of brain cancer. No child with this condition has lived past the age of three. Joshua was recently diagnosed - just before his first birthday.
His parents are praying for a miracle. While they do need help with medical bills and donations are appreciated, their appeal is more focused on the power of prayer. They have a much stronger faith and belief in the power of prayer than I have. If you are so inclined and believe in prayer, positive thinking, visualization/actualization, or what have you, please consider sharing Joshua's story in your social media, and adding him to your thoughts, meditations, or prayers.
Thanks for listening.
