Figured this was the best place to get as many people praying as possible. The niece of a guy I went to school with (his neice is also the daughter of one of my bests friends step cousins (its a small town) was flown to Johns Hopkins on Friday with what they thought was a brain tumor. It ends up it was a blood clot in her brain. She has had 3 surgeries and its getting worse. The doctors said that if she pulls through she will never walk or talk again. She is only 2. PLEASE PRAY!
Update: this was posted on the facebook page today. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pray for this little angel!
We just received bad news Coras brain has suffered a lot of damage of the pressure they say she may not ever wake up again but if she does she will never be the same she won't know us she may never walk or talk again never be able to dance like she loves to do but we will take her anyway we can have her we need prayers more now then ever please pray that she pulls through this
Final update: a message from Cora's mommy (I pulled this off of the facebok page)
This is Cora's Mommy. We did find out that she had an aggressive, malignant tumor of some kind on her brain - we don't know how long she had it and we'll never understand why. The last hope I had was for her to live on through organ donation, but even that was taken away from us with those results - because it was the kind that could spread. Now, we are just struggling to find the reason behind this unbelievable heartbreak. We let her go last night and I held her until her little heart stopped beating. She just exuded love and light in our lives and joy to everyone who met her. We thank you for all the prayers and support from all of you. Please take our tragedy to heart and remember that every single second is precious with those you love. And if someone wants to play in a mud puddle, you jump right in with them. Those were my last happy memories of Cora - playing in the puddle and we danced in the rain...2 Sundays ago - when she was so vibrant and full of life. Every second I expect her to come bounding around the corner and say, "Up, Mommy!" and grin her beautiful smile at me. Just take the time to love and be loved. Don't let her passing be in vain.

Thank you Anna! I will keep everyone updated as I can find out information. They have started a facebook page for her. I believe there is no such thing as too much prayer so if everyone/anyone can add her to their prayer chains please do!
Anna me too. I am sad to say that it was posted tonight that there is nothing more that they can do for little Cora. She has been taken off meds and they will (not sure if its already been done or not) be taking her off of life support. Her organs will be donated to help other children. I ask that we still pray for her family who are all taking this very hard, that they can take comfort in the fact that she will be helping so many other children. This breaks my heart.
It breaks my heart to hear that, Patience. What a terrible loss. I cannot even imagine the pain her family is going through. Since my DD is about to turn 2, it's especially hard hitting for me. Obviously, no parent can ever imagine such a loss, and it makes me just break down in tears for her parents and all those who loved her. She was and is obviously a bright light for her family. Please let them know that so many are still praying for them. She will certainly make a beautiful addition to heaven, where she can dance all she wants.
*lurker* I wanted to thank you for sharing this. I'm so incredibly sorry to learn about the pain and suffering of this sweet baby and her family. I wish that no parent ever had to know the pain of losing a child -- no matter the stage/age.
I will continue praying for her family... and for all of those recipients that now have hope due to this families generous heart. She will continue to live on in their hearts and minds... and now through others.
