URGENT! Prayers please,

for sweet Reagan Marie.

This is a sweet little girl of a dear friend from college. 


Reagan was born on February 12, 2010. 


Reagan was recently diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). SMA is a neuromuscular disease characterized by degeneration of motor neurons, resulting, in progressive muscular atrophy and weakness.

Reagan is currently under care by the doctors and nurses at Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, NC.

Tomorrow she is having a tracheostomy and a permanent feeding tube inserted due to this genetic disease. They have been at Levine Children's Center since before Thanksgiving and are hoping to leave before Reagan's first birthday on February 12. Please pray that sweet little Reagan can come home to celebrate her first birthday out of the hospital!!!


I know a lot of you out there who read my blog likely have a baby or babies around Reagan's age and I know you would all probably agree with me when I say I can't imagine having a sick child. Please, please join with me to pray for little Reagan tomorrow as she goes through surgery. Please also pray for her mother and father and the rest of her family. If you so feel compelled please feel free to copy and paste this onto your own blog so that we can have more and more people lifting Reagan up in their prayers. This sweet girl needs every last prayer she can get.
