Blogging about life in Minnesota, raising our six kids with Down syndrome while battling Breast Cancer.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor in the morning the devil says, "Oh shit! She's up!"

Please lift them up in prayer!

It's been a long time since I've posted about Kristen. Too long, in fact. At the age of 3, Kristen was diagnosed with Leukemia. She went into full remission, but relapsed when she was 7. She made it back into remission and stayed cancer free until 2009, when her cancer returned. She was in remission for a few months when the cancer returned for a 4th time. At the age of 22, Kristen had a bone marrow transplant, and yesterday reached the 100th day milestone.

Kristen's cancer is back.

Please pray for her family, as they have some very difficult days ahead of them. Please pray for Kristen as she fights for her life. My heart is just aching for them, and I can only imagine what they are going through. Kristen has been fighting this battle her entire life. No child, no young woman, should ever have to fight so hard for so long. Please visit Kristen's blog and let her know you're out here praying for her.

Oh NO! I was just at her blog yesterday (or the day before?)

I feel for her family.
