Today my eleven-year-old grandson was diagnosed with leukemia. He is one very sick, very scared boy. He’d had a virus he couldn’t seem to shake, and when his mom took him to the doctor, he had a blood test and they were sent immediately to the local regional hospital where he was admitted. His mom supports the family, and she will have to work during this awful time, when her children need her. He has a twin brother, and older sister. My daughter is a woman of great faith. Please include prayers for the whole family.
Father, hear our prayer for this boy’s complete healing, for wisdom, skill , and compassion for his caregivers, and for grace, strength, and peace for all who live him–especially his mother, siblings and grandmother. Mother Mary, St. Joseph, St. Luke, St. Peregrine and Venerable Fulton Sheen, pray for him and for all involved in this trial that it will issue to the glory of God’s Name and the good of all concerned here.
