Prayers for Rebekah and Maggie

I have blogged on this before, but because it is so important to me, I am bringing it back up. If you haven't had a chance to check out Rebekah's website yet, I encourage you too. I have never met this little girl. In fact, I've only known about her maybe 2 weeks now. But her story is so touching, that I can't forget her now. Rebekah is just 3 years old and is suffering from inoperable cancer in her neck and face. At her small young age she is going through radiation and chemo. The blog is maintained by her parents on a daily basis. Read it with a tissue nearby.

From Rebekah's page I learned of another little girl named Maggie. She is also just 3 yrs old and suffering from leukemia. She is in the same hospital (sometimes) with Rebekah. She had a bone marrow transplant a few weeks ago, but her body has rejected it. She doesn't have much time left in this life. Maybe just a few days or weeks. Her website is absolutely heartbreaking. Her parents have amazing strength and courage and are doing their best to enjoy what time they have with her. The Make a Wish Foundation is also doing their part to help out.
You can find Maggie May's page here-

I know there are a lot of places you can make donations right now to help so many different people (particularly for the victims of Katrina). So if you can't make a monetary donation for these little girls, maybe you could at least say a little prayer for them and their parents. They really need it!
