I want to ask all of our Graystone family and friends to please pray for Emily Thornton. She is three years old and battling cancer. To my knowledge/memory, she is the first Graystone Kid to have cancer. The Graystone elders have laid hands on Emily and prayed over her and her family. We are claiming James 5:14-16 and trusting God for a miracle.
Emily is currently going through what is known as “red devil” chemo treatment. It is one of the strongest treatments with many side effects. Please pray that the chemo works with little side effects. Emily is losing her hair, but she seems to have a good attitude about it. The goal is to shrink the tumor and keep it from growing into her heart. Emily will have surgery soon to remove the tumor from her kidney.
Please pray for Emily today, this week and the months ahead. Also, please pray for her parents, Steven and Naomi, and her older brothers, Kyle and Ben. I’ve attached a letter below that 6 year old Kyle wrote to his parents. I cannot even imagine what this family is going through. Let’s do all we can for them.
Dad and Mom, I love you. I hope Emily gets well. I missed y’all. I hope God takes good care of her. If you have to go to the doctor’s, I would want to come visit and I hope our family comes back together. I hope Emily gets done with her cancer.”
