A little girl needs your help!

She needs your prayers. Makenzie is a 3rd grader at the school where I teach. Her mom is a teacher at our school. Early this week a tumor was found in her brain. Yesterday she had surgery to remove the tumor. They were able to remove the tumor with only some cells remaining. Unfortunately the tumor was found to be malignant. Makenzie will need to either have radiation or chemo. She has a twin sister and a little brother. Her brother is in Joshua's kindergarten class.

A benefit fund has been set up in Makenzie's name at Wilson Bank and Trust and her family has set up a webpage to update family and friends. Stop by and read her story. Leave a message. The support is much appreciated. Leave her a birthday message. Her birthday is Monday (Sept. 22).

cancer is tough enough as an adult - thanks for sharing this, it makes me feel useful to help somebody else on that rollercoaster.
