On Friday night, I happened across a blog ( I read the whole blog from beginning to end) about a precious Australian little miracle girl Princess Nicola .
Nicola was born with a rare genetic condition called Costello Syndrome .
She is only the 14th person in Australia with this condition and there is only around 140 people world wide with this condition.
Nicola was born in 2009 and she has gone through so many operations and hospital admissions in her short life already.
Nicola is now fighting a cancer and is going to be having 6 weeks of intensive radiation therapy.
She has already endured 12 weeks of intensive chemotherapy.
Sadly the cancerous tumour is inoperable and has not shrank since having the chemo.
But on the positive side it hasn’t grown either.
There is nothing I can say or do that will improve this traumatic journey that Nicola and her Mum, Dad and three sisters are going through, but the knowing that there are lots of people that are thinking of them at this time, may give them some comfort.
Should you wish to make a donation to the family there is a paypal link upon Nicola’s story site.
So tonight as I write this post and think of how grateful I am for my healthy children – even my son Samuel in Heaven – I send many thoughts and prayers to Nicola and her family, as they get ready to endure the next 6 weeks, hoping that Nicola’s little body can hold out and get through this treatment.
Hugs, thoughts and prayers to you Nicola, your Mummy, Daddy, sisters and extended family.
