I hope this is an appropriate place to ask a favor from ya'll?
We have a little gal here on the desert, who is in the battle of her life, with cancer. It has already taken her right leg from the knee down. Now, after going through surgeries and chemo and just starting to get her hair back and feeling pretty good, they have found out that is has spread from her leg. Salote is 12 folks. She is a fighter and a sweetheart and one of the kindest, finest young ladies you could meet. She is up at Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake recovering today, after they did surgery to remove it from her lung, diaphragm and esophagus. Our little church is planning a special fast for her and her doctors and nurses and her family next sunday. It's just our extra way of asking God, if he happens to have a miracle handy, if it be His will. If you fine folks would think of Salote when you have your prayers this week and next sunday, I'd be forever in your debt. If your not a religious person or a church-goer, that's absolutely great, but I still humbly ask you to think a little about her, and aim your positive energy in her direction. I don't know how this will end up. But all of us who love the Lauti family and are proud to call them friends and neighbors, will not give up this fight. As long as Salote is scratching and fighting this beast of a disease, we will stand beside her and love her, and do all we can to support her. WE NEED YOUR HELP! Prayer is a powerful tool. Collectively, we can all fight together. I am sorry if I have been too religious and I did not intend to offend folks who don't believe. Thanks for your help.
As a side note, her folks have been blessed in many ways since this fight began. Our little high school held a fund raiser and donated over $20000 to help medical costs. One her Aunt's works at a company and at Christmas time last year, that company paid in full everything at the hospital! As tough as this has been, it's brought us closer together and allowed us to intensify our compassion for our fellowman. Life isn't always fair, but how we react to hard times and care for those who need it most, shows our true colors. Thanks again my fine internet amigos. God Bless ya'll.
A poor ride beats a great walk any day!
