Prayers needed for a friend

Some of you know our friend Jake Newren who has been battling the same kind of leukemia as Carter, only with an added challenge that required a bone marrow transplant.  ALL is the most common form of childhood cancer but it's rare (and more dangerous) for adults.  Jake and Dennison were roommates back in their single days and Jake now has a beautiful family.  He even saved us on our wedding day when we were stranded at the temple.  Our truck keys were headed back to the reception with my parents and Jake came to our rescue with the spare key.   He was diagnosed last fall and had his transplant last month.  He is in need of lots of prayers right now, we're praying for a miracle!  We know from personal experience that there is POWER in prayer!!  We love you Jake!

  1. I'm so sorry to hear this about your friend. Our Bishop was just diagnosed with ALL as well, he is 55ish? in 2006 I trained with theTeam in Training raising money for Leukemia and Lymphoma. At the time I didn't know a single person who had this disease,they told us it was just a matter of time before we personally knew someone, now I know 4 people. You are always in our prayers. and we will add your friend Jake to our prayers as well.
