My sister's middle child, whom she always worried about.  For good reason, this child was always sick, always at the doctor's office.  I did not see her as a sickly person, I saw her as a vibrant, beautiful and very loving young lady.  This was 6 months ago.  Her smile was always full and naturally sincere. God wants to take this Angel home, we have 6 mos to a year to enjoy her.

These are letters from her and her older sibling.

From Ashley

Who would think huh? Cancer. Me. I regret nothing and accept everything because it has been in Gods plan and it is truly a blessing for Him to think of me out of all the children He has in the world. It has always been my biggest fear to go to the doctors as a child and for this to have happened all the shots and ivys and appointments I've been through have just been so hard for me. Going off island to get surgery is definitely going to be the greatest hardship I will face yet. Your prayers would mean the world to me. Sincerely, Ashley

From Older Sister

So it's true...my 20 year old sister, Ashley, has been very sick and it turns out--it's cancer. and it has spread like wildfire.

What kind of cancer?...everyone is asking...and months ago we could have easily given it a name, as it could have been isolated in one area, then, but now that it is also moving into/affecting her lungs, liver, and some of her bones--there isn't a single name. It's just an untreatable, fast acting cancer that we are hoping allows her to live well and happily for the 6 months to a year that the doctors are estimating that she has left =]

My parents want a second opinion, and who wouldn't? The evidence is deafeningly clear though--it's spread too far and is untreatable. I'm hoping that any procedures they decide to put her through are only so she can live comfortably and well. It's not that I've lost hope, because miracles happen, but I've come to understand that this reality May be His will and if He has plans for her, who am i to question Him? If God lets her stay with us, she'll continue to be the biggest pain in my ass, my confidant, and my 'almost twin' lol But if God wants her, He can take her and I KNOW she'll be happier with Him. SHE knows it, too

I'll keep you all posted about fundraisers, her travel plans, and everything else...but your prayers for my family's strength and peace are truly appreciated

Lord, please strengthen the faith of my family and give courage to my baby sister, my best friend, my Ashy
