Asking for your prayers. Again.

Many of you will probably remember this handsome little guy from some time ago when I was following his story closely and even invited some of you to send gifts/cards as he underwent a bone marrow transplant along with his perfect donor match, brother Devon. Some of you have continued to follow his growth and progress and I was deeply saddened after reading so many positive posts and seeing the grins from Jaymun in all of his pictures- to hear that he again is facing a long road of chemotherapy and new treatments.
His mother, Jennifer, emailed me, along with other family and friends, the difficult, hard news more than a week ago. I also was given permission to share this photo and link to their blog where I, along with Jennifer, invite you to be aggressive in your prayers and thoughts for Jaymun and his family as they begin another journey into scary and unknown territory. My heart and prayers are with them every step of the way.
I think of my own journey- the ups and the downs, and I am comforted to know that they have a faith in God and His sovereignty...but I know that it is still very difficult to trust God with something as scary as your youngest son going through cancer. I hope that you will think of Jaymun often and I know I will be praying feverently in hopes of seeing yet another miracle unfold in his life.
He is a charmer, a fighter and an inspiration to many. I know God loves him more than anyone could...and so I, along with his family, trust and pray today and in the coming days. Thank you for your care for the Kaat family.

Jody...I will definitely add him to my list. What a cute little bugger. And, from some recent experience with cancer...I know that God does perform miracles. :)

Will pray for this little precious and prayer works. What you said about God loving him is so true. God loves our children even more than we do so when we lift up prayers for them He feels and knows
how deep we feel.
Thanks for sharing!
Be blessed!
