I just wanted to comment about my new blog header. I chose the color orange for my blog title because it is the color of the ribbon for Leukemia.
My dear friend Allana was diagnosed with Leukemia just three weeks ago. Allana gave birth to a “miracle baby” on December 16th after years of heartbreaking miscarriages and one stillborn son named Josiah. God finally gave her the desire of her heart a month ago, in the birth of her daughter Nisa. Just weeks later she went to the hospital with what she thought were flu symptoms. It turns out that she has a very aggressive form of Leukemia. Allana has been in the hospital ever since.
A very aggressive form of chemotherapy was started last week, and though doctors are able to keep the most difficult side effects at bay, she is still experiencing some. The others will eventually come. She is very sick, very tired, and very weak. But she saves the best moments of her day to hold Nisa Faith, her darling newborn daughter. Allana’s husband Sam and the baby are able to stay at the hospital with her, but she is allowed no other visitors at this time due to her compromised immune system. She is only able to skype with her other children at home, who miss their mommy terribly.
Please join me in praying for Allana. My blog will stay “orange” as I join my friend in the fight of her life. My Facebook cover photo and profile photo are also dedicated to this fight at this time.
I love you Allana, I’m praying for you! Fight like a girl!
