Thank you all for praying right away for Anna Marie – the 17-year old with leukemia at VCU her mother Sarah my friend and their family last night…here is the update:
“Last night, our dear sweet Anna Marie passed away. The ‘mystery spots’ turned out to be a fungal infection that anyone with an immune system fights off daily. The doctors did head CT to see if the infection had infiltrated her brain, as they would need to use a harsher version of the anti-fungal, which would be damaging to her kidneys and require her going on dialysis. Her kidneys had already been having difficulty, and that morning she had been spiking fevers and dropping her blood pressure, and fighting fluid build up in her lungs. She ended up back on the breathing assistance, and eventually a ventilator.
When they returned with the results of the head CT, the doctors had tears in their eyes. There was extensive infiltration that there could be no coming back from. This was why she hadn’t awoken, and was likely why she ended up in Status with the seizures, as well. The plan now was to maintain the medications and supports she was currently on, but not to increase them, and to take steps to make her more comfortable. Dear friends arranged to get our kids to join us at the hospital, and we were able to spend her last hours together as a family. Maddie was in bed with her, cuddling, when her heart stopped. It was well sooner than any of the doctors had anticipated, but it was peaceful. She was not alone and she was not in pain. But we are all so utterly heartbroken. Our dear sweet, innocent, beautiful, mischievous, loving, snuggly, joyful, little Anna Marie is gone.”

Please also keep his parents and family in your prayers for continued strength and perseverence. Their hearts are breaking for their little one.

Thank you for your prayers! It is with overflowing hearts and spirits filled with awe that Jacques and I introduce our rainbow baby, our moon, stars, our son: William Jacques ❤️. Our angel arrived at 12:54 am on Saturday, August 4th and now shares a birthday with his most incredible Daddy, Jacques! He arrived in His time but a bit early at just 30 weeks gestation and weighs in at 3.3oz. He is William, the Peaceful Warrior.
For me, William’s arrival through me into this world marks my greatest victory. The overcoming of my greatest and longest-held fears. Through God’s grace, my husband’s undying love, and the mind-bending, soul-bursting power of love and prayers from our dearest family and friends, hope has conquered fear and there are no earthly words to accurately describe this Victory.
The world is overwhelming. It is easy to feel we have no control & often, we don’t. But we have control over our own hearts and minds which is a powerful force not to be forgotten. Put on your armor of Hope, take up the sword of Love and shield of Faith and battle past all the uncertainties. For I can assure you that on the other side of your fears lies everything you’ve ever dreamed of. Thank you, God, for you are awesome in your works.

Many of you may remember ongoing prayers for “little Oliver”, the grandson of one of our members. Oliver had massive surgery in the Fall to elongate his deformed leg and reconstruct his malformed hip. Surgery and physical therapy took approx 6 months. They were able to come home although he wasn’t allowed to put weight on his leg or undergo physical therapy until the doctor said “ok”. Sadly, Oliver’s leg has atrophed, an apparent rare outcome for his type of surgery. He and his mom are back in FL facing 2 options: 1) a botox injection and a leg brace; or 2) another surgery with more pins and other paraphernalia. Please storm Heaven for Oliver and option 1 with complete success. Pray also for his parents’ strength and perseverance during this time.
