Visit Rebekah's Page to get updates, read messages and send messages to Rebekah and her family through comments. This is a public "diary" of a family whose little girl started a battle with inoperable cancer in April 2005. In December 2007 our house burned down. And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own. Over several years of ups and downs, you will get into our hearts, minds and souls as we share joys and sorrows. It can sometimes be very difficult to read. We hope it is also uplifting. Please find joy in what you read here.

Today has been a “do very little” day.  Everyone has been sleeping.  Daddy is trying to get work done as best as possible.  His cold is going away but still affecting him.  Rebekah and Sarah have both been sleeping a lot and mommy is trying to get in as many cat-naps as she can after only sleeping about 4 hours last night.  We are VERY grateful for the stash of food that has come the last couple of days.  Please see the “How Can I Help” page on for info about a need for a freezer again.

Oliver and his family have been on our mind all day.  It just doesn’t seem right; none of this does.  Please extra double your prayers for all of these kiddos and pay special attention to Oliver and his family.  We are especially drawn to wanting to help them right now (like we want to help all of the families) but we don’t know what we can do except call your attention there.

Everyone needs a "do very little day" especially your family. Sleep is so healing :)

My prayer's are with Oliver.

I forgot, I just did an entry describing rebekah's blog and your family history with ALS. ER is doing a show on ALS tonight and the entry will bring attention to Rebekah's fight and ALS.
