CF Husband Update


A couple of times over the last several months I've directed you to Nate Lawrenson's blog, Confessions of a CF Husband.  You may recall his story--he and his wife, Tricia, who has cystic fibrosis, were on a lung transplant list when Tricia became pregnant. Rather than abort the baby, which they were told had less than a 50 percent chance of surviving, they postponed the transplant. Gwyneth Rose was born at 24 weeks gestation, and Tricia had her transplant. 

The baby grew strong and is doing well, but Tricia has developed post-transplant lymphoma, a type of cancer caused by a virus. Her tumors did not respond to a round of chemotherapy.  This young family now needs our prayers. 

Spend a little time on Nate's blog and you will see pictures (he's a great photographer) of joyous faith in action. The love he has for his wife and daughter is contagious. Please join me in prayer for this family over the next few weeks.

I've been following Nate, Tricia and Gweneth's story too. They have an amazing love story and a beautiful little miracle in Gweneth. I pray for them daily as I read Nate's postings. Thanks for sharing their story with all your readers.
