Please Help!!

As many of you may know Carley Hoffman is our Blessed Recipient for December at Baby Be Blessed. Carley Hoffman is the daughter of Joel and Christina (Berry) Hoffman. Christina is the daughter of Carl and Sue Berry, and a graduate of Central Lutheran School and New Haven High School.

On July 23rd 2008, Carley was diagnosed with high risk, stage four Neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma is a childhood disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the nerve tissue of the adrenal gland, neck, chest, or spinal cord. In Carley's case, the cancer appears to have started in her spinal cord.

Carley will be having surgery Friday 12-12 at Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis she will be having a tumor removed from her chest. The extent of the surgery is not known at this point Carley's but mom said that it will not be able to be done laparoscopically. At this point there is another tumor that has shown up on the scans that may require a possible 2nd surgery. Also, Carley's baby brother Ethan who is 3 month's old is also having some health concerns. Ethan's one eye has been dilated and is not changing.

Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers!
It would mean a lot to them to know that you are praying and thinking of them and I encourage you to visit Carley's Caringbridge page to leave them your encouraging words! Will you join with us to pray and help this family financially during this great time of need?! I praise God for all of you and that we can come together as the body of Christ to help and encourage one another!

Galations 6:2 "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ."
