Prayers for Landon

I met Colleen and her son Landon through the Down syndrome support group in Maryland. Landon is exactly 6 months younger than Kayla.

Landon has been through too much in his short life. In 2006 he was diagnosed with AML. He was in remission. In 2007 it returned and later that year he had a bone marrow transplant.

Earlier this month an MRI revealed "...2 spots in each kidney, 2 spots on his ribs, and he has a mass on his pancreas. There are also 3 spots on his head."

Then he had an Endoscopic Retrograde Choloangiopancreatography which showed 2 more spots in his stomach. From his mom's journal, "There is a large tumor behind Landon's left eye deep into the socket. There is a tumor behind his right eye. There are tumors in his brain. There are two on the front lobes...so there are at least four inside his head and three on the outside of his head."

Tumors are showing up on the side of his face, his left arm and leg. They are spreading and growing fast.

Cancer sucks.

Landon, and his family, need your prayers. Please pray for Landon.
