Prayers for Manny

Hey all - I've got a request for you today.  My dear friend Anna - who I've known since I was 14 - who was the matron of honor at my wedding - and who has always been more like a sister than a friend to me - has a darling little nephew who was recently diagnosed with leukemia. 

He's 3.

And you know, I just don't know what to do.  I just...can't even imagine.  Writing this post is all I can think of to do to help.  And it's not enough.  :-(

So if you all are the praying kind, would you please shoot off  a prayer for Manny?  He's having bunches of side effects from the chemo, and I think it's time for things to start looking up for him and his family.

And if you aren't the praying kind, please just keep Manny and his family in your thoughts and send some good vibes their way.

Life just isn't fair sometimes, is it.

I can't even imagine. That is one of the things that I am the most afraid of. I can absolutely send prayers in the direction of that little 3 year old.

I'm so sorry. I will keep them in my thoughts. If there's anything I could send that would help (toys, cards, etc.), I'd be happy to. Just let me know. I bet my 3-year-olds would be happy to make pictures for him that I could mail. Just a thought.

Just reading this makes my heart hurt so badly. I just can't even fathom. My thoughts are with your friend and her entire family. If there is anything that they need, please let us know.

Thoughts and prayers for Manny and his family. I feel sick every time I hear of a child diagnosed with cancer. Or anyone for that matter, but with kids, it's different. Sending positive thoughts!

I am the praying type, so Manny can expect some prayers coming his way.

Oh wow, I can't even imagine what that must be like for him and his family. My heart breaks for them and I'll definitely include the little guy and his family in my prayers for sure.

Oh that is just awful :-( I'm not the praying type, but I'm definitely keeping Manny and his family in my thoughts, and sending him SO many positive vibes. It just breaks my heart.
