"I'm asking for prayers for my Great Nephew, Hayes Brown. He's 5 yrs. old, and is at St. Jude's Hospital in Memphis. He started seeing blood in his urine last week, so his parents took him to the doctor, who sent them directly to St. Jude's. His parents hadn't noticed the tumor, because it was growing inward, and he hadn't shown any symptoms until the blood in the urine.

On Friday, they removed one of his kidneys in which they found a tumor the size of a grapefruit. They also removed some lymph nodes nearby, and are doing a biopsy on all of them right now. The Docs called it a Wilms Tumor, and thankfully, St. Jude's has a survival rate of 90% for kids with this type of cancer.

Please pray for full healing for Hayes, and peace for his parents Chris (my nephew), and his wife Amy, and their other sons Holliman 7, and 6 mth. old twins Cooper and Webb. It's a very scary time for them, as you can imagine, but their faith is strong, and they are being uplifted spiritually, by prayers from all over."
