Once You Choose Hope, Anything Is Possible
Grace

Have you ever prayed for a miracle?

Have you ever prayed for a miracle and then, one day, saw that miracle come true?

For me, today is that day.

The miracle is Braden.

I have written before of one of my heroes, Braden Hofen. Braden is six. I just learned the results of his latest scans after treatment for recurring neuroblastoma.

NO EVIDENCE OF DISEASE!

NO EVIDENCE OF DISEASE!

NO EVIDENCE OF DISEASE!

I am so thankful I had to type it three times, and I can only imagine what his family must be feeling!!!!!!!!!!  Besides giving thanks for the great news about Braden’s health, I am also giving thanks for the hundreds of people who have been praying for him. I am giving thanks for all of the people who have supported Braden and the Hofen family in every way—big and small.

I just hung up the phone from talking with Jonny Imerman of Imerman Angels. Guess who is their newest “Angel”? These “Angels” are “matched,” and they give support to patients going through similar cancer experiences. I absolutely love this! What a great idea, what a great organization, and what a blessing it was to speak with Jonny… no doubt he is a Real Angel. If you know someone going through cancer who could use support from someone who has already gone down the same path (is there a cancer patient who couldn’t use this?) this is the place to refer them!

While I am rejoicing in the miraculous news with everyone who loves and cares about Braden, my heart is, at the same time, heavy with the news today about a friend I have written of before, Breanna. She is fighting very, very hard, and at this time, is unresponsive. Her mom reports that her vital signs are strong. Please pray for Breanna. Please pray those same miracle prayers we have all prayed for Braden.

Let’s multiply miracles.
