Update: Ciera

I know it’s been a long time since i’ve written. A lot has happened. There’s a lot that i’m going to share, but I will hold back for today and just share a prayer request, because the prayers are working. 

I’d like to request prayer for my friend Ciera. For those of you who are new to following my blog, she has battled cancer for a long, long time now. She has relapsed twice. After the most recent relapse, she went to Washington State for a trial and then back to St Jude for her second Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT). Her mother is her donor this time. Last bone marrow transplant, her brother was the donor but their matches were too close and her body reacted the same way when the cancer came back.

Since the BMT, Ciera has retained fluid that put stress on her lungs, her heart, and caused her kidneys to fill with toxicity. This also produced confusion.

Yesterday, Ciera’s kidneys started shutting down so they went into surgery, inserted a cath and have started Dialysis. Her condition has improved since and she is coming out of some of her confusion! Praise the Lord!!

Please be praying for her. She has fought so hard, with everything she has. Pray that the Lord strengthen her and give her courage. Pray her mom receives comfort. Pray for complete healing. Pray for peace.

By His stripes, She is Healed. 

Below are pictures of Ciera, Me and memories… As you look through each picture, pray for her, her mom Sherri, Her dad Mike, and her brother Austin.
