I know isn't supposed to be posted here, but I hope everyone will understand.
A dear friend of mine (Chris Kimler)found out his 13 year old son Trace has cancer. Trace started Chemo last Friday.
I was speaking with Chris last week and he told me Trace asked him how many people are praying for him. Chris shared a couple of emails with him, and Trace said something like "wow, people in Oklahoma are praying". Chris showed him another one from someone in Maine. Chris said Trace and he have kinda started a game checking off the different states people are praying in.
Please do three things.
1. Pray for Trace, Chris, Amy (Trace's mom), Maddie (little sister), and Cole (little brother. I'm praying for healing, peace, strength, comfort, wisdom, and joy in this Christmas season.
2. I'm hoping we can get all 50 states and some others countries too. Please send me an email with where you're praying from to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll compile them and get them to Chris so he can share with Trace.
3. Ask those you know to pray as well.
I've been forwarding the emails you've sent me, and I received this from Chris:
That's awesome! I hope you guys have a great Christmas. Trace appreciates all this. Please make sure your friends know that he has read them all and appreciates the support.
Please continue to send them to me at email@example.comDec 22, 2008 at 11:07 am #1465864

Kind of a good way to flush out where everybody's from. :)
I like how this most modern of technology is helping us in performing the oldest of acts — circling together in prayer.Dec 22, 2008 at 1:51 pm #1465925

They may want to check out this website, caringbridge.org. This could be a very useful resource for the family as they go through this ordeal. I learned of it from friends whose baby girl also has CA.Dec 22, 2008 at 2:05 pm #1465929

It certainly should not have been posted under Gear, so I have moved the thread to Chaff.
My best wishes for Trace.
