Fighting the Good Fight

Please continue to keep our friends Mike and Michelle in your prayers as their daughter, Paige, fights her battle with leukemia. In the midst of the battle soldiers grow weary and such is the case with this precious family. In spite of the trials, there are answers to prayer, one being that both Paige's brother and sister are perfect donor matches for a bone marrow transplant. She needs to go into remission in order for this procedure to take place and her body is not currently producing the blood counts needed for that. Fevers and rashes also plague her. Please pray for strength for her parents as Mike continues to work and Michelle spends her days and most nights at the hospital and healing, of course, for Paige. The battle has just begun.


  1. Martha,

    Paige is such a beautiful young woman. Thank you for sharing her story with us and allowing us to pray for her and her family.

  3. I'm so sorry your friends have to experience this.. I'll certainly pray for them!! My oldest daughter, Katie is a survivor of leukemia, diagnosed at 8. She's now almost 26, married, and has a little girl. My niece is also a survivor (AML), and had a bone marrow transplant at a little over 2 1/2. She is in 8th grade now. It is a very difficult time, and we could never have gone through it without God, and all the help He sends. There's no doubt in my mind that He had His hands over us in many ways. Lots of trials, but more than enough grace! Thanks for sharing and for your faithfulness.
