Julisa - leukemia patient

Yesterday we got to see Julisa for the first time in a while.  Julisa came to us in 2007 with a blood count below 10 and soon after was diagnosed with leukemia.  Her family followed the recommendations to go to the hospital and has been undergoing treatments for the last 5 years.  There are times we she does much better than others.  Last year she had a relapse and was not able to attend school, but this year she is doing much better, her defenses and blood counts are up and she has started second grade and is able to stay in school and do her homework when she heads off to the hospital in the city.  Here is a post with some of her history:

Here is a picture of her yesterday. Growing up, learning to read and even has her curls back.  Please continue to pray for Julisa and her family.  We continue to help them with the cost of travel to the city for her treatments as she continues to go once a month for either treatments or testing.  Unfortunately, it is never with the same physician which complicates knowing her history, but the family presses on with the faith in God that only He is in control.  This is a beautiful, God loving family.

If you wish to help with some of these expenses for Julisa or others that we help through our charity fund to help with costs related to medical care, please let us know.
