For those of you who are the praying type (which I hope is everyone reading this), I'd like to ask you to lift up young Nadia James in prayer.
Nadia's parents, Eddie and Jeanie, were Angie and my best friends in Phoenix and while we've grown apart since we moved away, we still love them.
A few days ago, we heard through the grapevine that their beautiful little girl Nadia was sick, and yesterday it was confirmed that she has acute Leukemia. Please pray for her and her family. When she gets to Heaven, she'll have a new and perfect body, but in the meantime she must overcome the flaws of her earthly body.
For more on what's going on, so you can pray specifically, earnestly and humbly, here's a link to a blog her parents have created to detail the journey:
