TRUE HEROES OF THE WORLD
Considering I am a Romantic Suspense writer, it is safe to say I write about many heroes. Strong, courageous, fearless...you know; the stuff fairytales are made of. The heroes I want to discuss today, however, are not fiction at all. On the contrary, they are all too real, as is the nightmare they live each day. The children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
These little soldiers live in a world different from most. They don’t wake to help Mom shop or sail off to daycare with tiny peers. They wake to fear, pain, and chemotherapy. Such troopers and that’s why the children who undergo what they do and still deliver such love and laughter are what a true hero is made of. The true heroes of the world. Strong, courageous and fearless. My heroes.
Their names deserve to be mentioned in prayer and encouragement. I’ve listed a few below.
Hayden – 6 years (Medulloblastoma)
Zowie – 7 years (Acute Myeloid Leukemia)
JaLise – 4 years (Medulloblastoma)
Brayden – 2 years (Retinoblastoma)
Emma - 7 years (Glioblastoma)
Katelyn – 7 years (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia)
Brady – 3 years (Neuroblastoma)
Seth – 6 years (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia)
You can learn more about these adorable little people and maybe even become a partner by visiting St Jude.
St. Jude is a place of miracles where families don’t have to choose between the care of one child’s illness and food on their tables for others at home.
