Another update :( Prayers for baby Joel- AT/RT brain cancer

3 new tumors were found on Joel's MRI yesterday. :( Prognosis is "very bleak" according to his Dr. The Green family could really use your prayers.

Today Joel's parents got the best news. Joel's cancer is currently considered IN REMISSION!!!! Complete miracle. I am so happy. Just wanted to update. See the blog for more details and what has happened lately if you haven't been keeping up... a month ago the Dr's were preparing for the end and now a complete turnaround!!

Original post

I have posted before about my cousin's little boy Joel. He was diagnosed with a very rare brain cancer (AT/RT) in January right after his 1st birthday and had surgery to remove a large tumor. He's had lots of radiation/chemotherapy the last 10 months. My dad called me earlier to pass on some news. Joel went for an MRI today and the results came back like no one expected. A large tumor has grown back in the front of his brain and the doctors are basically saying there's nothing else they can do at this point. The treatment isn't working. Sad They plan to stop chemotherapy and make Joel as comfortable as they can.

Please pray for Joel, his parents and two older brothers as well as the rest of their family. I am absolutely heartbroken for them. There has always been ups and downs since he was diagnosed but we all thought he was doing okay. This was pretty shocking news.

Lindsey, i have continued to read the blog, thanks for posting it. i just wanted to write again and say how much of an inspiration joel and his faamily are. even when they are going thru this unspeakable horror, they still look to God. and joel just really pulls at my heart strings, he is so precious. if you get the chance let them know how his story and bravery has touched my life, and im sure the lives of many others. i would also like to ask my church to pray for joel, God can accomplish anything. is that ok?
