This is a picture of my cousin's son, Steven and his girl friend, Jill. It was taken in May of this year as they were leaving for their Prom. Jill had finished a round of chemo for Ewings Sarcoma, a cancer that effected her spine. Her hair was just growing back. She had a short remission and then the cancer was back. She was accepted into an experimental program at Children's Hospital in Denver, Colorado but her cancer was too advanced and they could not help her. We got word today that she has between 4 - 6 weeks to live.
Her family is asking for prayers for her, her friends, and family as they face this tragic time. Jill is 17 years old and a senior in high school this year. She is facing this, like everything else in her life, with grace, courage and faith.
Please, if you can, say a little prayer for her. Thank you.

How sad. She is a lovely young woman, but cancer doesn't care if you are old, young, rich, or poor. I will also add her and her family to my prayer list. Please keep us up-dated.
