    My cousin is in need of prayers. Back in October my seven year old cousin Robbie Was diagnosed blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell type tumor.It sort of falls in to a subcutaneous non-hodgkins lymphoma but has characteristics of leukemia.
    The cancer is in his left leg. He went down to St. Jude's Hospital in Memphis for a few months and is staying in the Ronald McDonald house. He was able to come back to St. Louis for Christmas but has to go back and forth to St. Jude's for four days at a time for about one to two years!
    There have been very few documented cases of this type of cancer and the only ones have that have been documented not come out positive.
    Please pray for him and his family.
    I will keep you updated.

    My heart goes out to your little cousin. Gosh, so little to have such big problems. I will pray that the Lord looks upon him and his health with favor, that HE gives this boy courage, blessings.... and keeps him under HIS mantle.

    God Bless,

    Mary

    Dear God,
    Please touch the body of this young baby...keep him safe, strong, and close to You during his time of treatments. Please give his family courage and strength. I pray, Dear Lord, peace befalls this family and friends of this family as Your will is done. I pray this in the sweet name of Jesus.

    --Amen
