On March 23rd 1997 one of the greatest people I know entered my life. My loving sister, Shawna and her dedicated husband, Jim gave birth to my beautiful niece named Shelby. Just this past March 23rd 2013, she celebrated her sweet 16th birthday. My Shelby has grown up to be a loving, dedicated and beautiful young lady. On April 3rd, 2013 I had received a devastating phone call from my sister that my only niece, Shelby, had just been diagnosed with Leukemia. On April 4th after testing her bone marrow it was confirmed that she has Pre B A.L.L Leukemia. Now at the time of her life where she should be worrying about boys, what clothes look best on her and if her make up is to perfection she has a battle ahead of her. Before I got to talk to my niece, my sister told me that her only request was…NO CRYING!!! All though she had just been told that she has been diagnosed with Leukemia, she immediately begins to think of others first. This just goes to show what a strong, incredible young lady her parents have raised. Shelby and her parents have a long road ahead of them with many doctor visits and two years of chemo treatment. My brother-in-law, Jim had set up a site “the Caring Bridge” for all to walk through this journey with her and your responses have been amazing. Her family believes that God and his Angels are protecting her and will help guide her through this. I’m reaching out to you, family and friends to be Angels yourself and help them fight. Due to this long road ahead of them, I’m asking for donations. Any size will help support her and her parents with unexpected expenses. I also ask for all to continue with your prayers, specifically for a positive response to treatment, for continued strength throughout and for her wonderful doctor and nurses to be an instrument of God’s healing. I know heaven must be echoing with your prayers for Shelby’s recovery and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
