friday favorites: isaac strong

Normally my Friday Favorites are sort of a fun time. A time to share a cool place, some unique or on-trend items, or something funny. Today I have none of those to share with you, however, there is something that is more important and touching my heart in a special way. It all started out with THIS post from Erin at Living in Yellow. A child named Isaac, a six year old, that is dying of cancer.


He was cured. Running around on the playground with his friends to finding himself in the hospital a few weeks later. With a forceful cancer that is fighting for his body while Isaac is fighting for his life, he is not doing so well.

Erin, being the amazing person that she is, has called for help. Help to give this boy and their family at least a little bit of hope and happiness this holiday season as their son is giving it all he has.


It has been an amazing journey so far. Through the help of so many already, Erin has managed to raise well over the goal, $2,000. That does not mean we should stop there. Please reach out and give what you can. Whether it is money, a prayer, a letter, an Isaac Strong picture, or telling some one about him.

Six year olds should be writing their Christmas lists this time of year. Not wondering what heaven will be like.
Take some time and read Erin's A Call For Help post, and the progress so far and how you can help. Need more reason to help this beautiful child, just read some of his parent's online journal about his progress and grab a few tissues before hand.

I cannot imagine what his family is going through. His life has a purpose and God has his life in his hands. Let's join together as a blogging family and community and do everything we can.


YOU, Isaac, are an inspiration. My inspiration. Prayers are with you strong little man.

What a beautiful post. My mom has been going through chemo treatments for breast cancer, so this definitely touches my heart.
