A day for Praying for a miracle

I am taking the time today to direct away from anything diabetes related. A big advocate and voice in the DOC needs our help in praying for a miracle for her husband and family. Ryan and Meri Schuhmacher have been married for 19 years now. They have 4 sons ranging in ages from 8 to 16. Three of their boys have Type 1 diabetes like Clifford. We connected online due to our connection with diabetes, and I have read many blog posts from Meri that have helped tremendously throughout our dealing with Type 1. On February 26, 2012, her husband Ryan was taken to the ER for an evaluation of right sided leg numbness and heaviness. The head CT discovered that he has 6 brain tumors. Additional testing revealed tumors in his lungs and abdomen as well. Ryan is only 40 years old.

Their road ahead will be long and rocky, as it will be filled with radiation and new drugs that have just been recently approved by the FDA. It will be filled with exhausting emotions, moments of fear, and endless questions. But it will also be filled with hope, and faith beyond measure. The family is asking today March 4th that you join them in time of prayer for a miracle. I am asking if you could take a small moment of your day today to help pray for them all.

For with God nothing will be impossible Luke 1:37

My thoughts and prayers are with Meri, Ryan and their boys today, please join me in this also.
