Sydney and Will

Friday, July 17, 2009


Rhabdomyosarcoma is a rare type of cancer. From what I could find in a brief search there are only about 350 new cases of this cancer every year. I know two people who are currently fighting it.

The first is little Sydney Newton.

I haven't spent much time with Sydney but I have spent enough time with her to know that she is just precious. When I took these photos I just remember how sweet she and her brother Dawson were to each other. They cracked me up! She comes from a great family as well. Little Sydney is currently undergoing chemotherapy to treat her cancer.

I know the Newton's would so appreciate your prayer. As you can imagine there are overwhelming expenses involved with her treatment and recovery. If you feel like you can help please click here to visit the website for Preston's Western Wear....just click on the yellow "DONATE" button. At the very least....please pray for their entire family.

Here are a few additional links related to Sydney:

The other person is a man named Will Haney.

His wife Emily and I have been friends for a long time. They are currently in Houston waging their fight against the same form of cancer. One thing about both of these families that has impressed me is the strength they have exhibited during all of this. It is truly inspiring. I know that Will and Emily would also appreciate your prayers. There is also a site set up for Will where you can make a donation. I know that any amount you could give would help. You can do that by going to www.gotwillpower.net and clicking on the yellow "DONATE" button at the very bottom of the home page. Here are a few extra links about Will:

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and for helping these two wonderful families!
