Pray For Kate ( Even If You Don't Pray )

This is Kate. Kate is 5 years old. She has just been diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor the size of an egg.






















These are Kate's parents.




















This is Kate's family. Please pray for Kate.

Definitely praying for Kate. So heartbreaking. Kids shouldn't get sick.

Dana's Brain said...

Thanks for adding the "even if you don't pray" line as I am one of those. But I will certainly send all my support and good wishes to that beautiful girl and her family.

That one girl said...

Hearing things like this break my heart and then makes me pissed when I hear others complain about not having enough clothes, or thin hair, or other tiny miniscule things.

They will be in my prayers!!!!

Elizabeth said...

I will pray for Kate and her beautiful family. Thank you for asking. (and I'm horrified that I've heard of four brain tumors in children in the last couple of months).

Patois said...

I will.

Owen said...

Here's one wish from France for full recovery. No one deserves this. How could something so awful happen to a little being so beautiful ???

the real mia said...

Such a sad story but such a beautiful family. They will definitely be in my thoughts.

Thanks for your comments and for becoming my 30th follower. I'm flattered.

Lola said...

What a gorgeous family! I'll pray.

Shaista said...

Dear Maggie,
Yes of course I'll pray for Kate. So kind and wonderful of you to shine light on others, to make another person's hope and suffering real across our invisible borders - I suppose that is the best of the blog world?
Love, Shai

Dingo said...

De-lurking to say that my thoughts are with Kate and her family. Life seems so unfair sometimes.

Rachael said...

Wow. Sometimes I can't even stand to get on the Internet because you just never know when the next heartbreaking story will catch you off guard. There seems to be no shortage. I added my prayers for Kate.

chelle said...

Oh my! How scary and awww ... totally sending positive vibes their way!

anymommy said...

Sometimes it's hard to let all the pain in this world into your heart, I don't know how you do it. I will pray for her.

setyourselfonfire said...

in two days i am off to africa to work in an orphanage, if you could pray for our safety that would be amazing :)

Reinvent Dad said...

Ugh, how terribly awful. I can't stand when bad things happen to children...Kate is in my prayers.

Valentine said...

I know its kind of wrong to think this way but I always wonder why little kids have to go through something like these.. its unfair. But who am I to question the way things work, right?

Will definitely pray for Kate.

I absolutely will be praying and sending my best thoughts there way.

Maxine said...

This is tragic. I've read a lot of stories like this and it's great that they are out there. I do wish there also be as much sympathy for families with sick children that do not look like the all-anglo-american dream. Still, it's a media angle and not a criticism of your beautiful blog/

Maggie May said...

i agree and would have put her up, had i found her story, if she were of any color or face or flavor. she is a little girl who is terribly sick. that's all we need to know-

this wheel's on fire said...

WOW my thoughts are certainly with that family...wow

Elle Bee... said...

I can't imagine what that family is going through. So terrible!

My heart goes out to them.

Paula said...

Thank you for posting this and bringing it to our attention. If you are able, and hear more, keep us updated. They are a lovely family, and for ANYONE, especially ANY child, to go through this, it is just heart wrenching. Praying...

clarewbrown said...

Wow, how unbelievably tragic! It makes me immeasurably sad to think of people suffering. I will definitely pray for this girl!

Thanks for sharing this. It makes one reflect on how precious life is.
