Julisa Lux Alvarez - 4 years later

Please meet Julisa Lux Alvarez.  We first blogged about her in 2007 and this is a picture of her from 2006.  Julisa is the younger girl with curls.  Here she would known as La Colocha (girl with curley hair).

Julisa was diagnosed with Lukemia in Feb of 2007 and through the help of Health Talents International and through your donations we have been able to assist her to get treatments over the last 4 years.  We have been helping with the costs of travel as the cost of treatment is borne by a Guatemalan foundation for kids with cancer. 

This is a picture of Julisa during the period of her chemotherapy with her parents.  No curls but still a beautiful little girl.

This is a picture from June 2008 after she had finished her first round of chemo and had  a chance to get some of her color back and some of her hair.

Julisa is now 7 years old and is in first grade.  She has finished her treatments, but she still travels every 1 - 2 months to have blood work and checkups.  They have cleared her from going to the hospital in the city when she gets sick, so she is in remission.  God is good!

This is Julisa with her mom Juana at the church in Pacaja Xesic.  No more curly hair, just straight but she looks very healthy and happy.  Please continue to pray for Julisa and her family.

The "girl with the curley hair" reminds me that Joanna's younger daughter calls Shirley Temple that "wiggly-haired" girl!
