amy whilhoite

There is a blog I have been reading since shortly after it was begun around a year ago. It is about a lovely Christian woman Living With Leukemia. Her name is Amy Wilhoite and she has a rare form of leukemia, typically found in much older patients, making everything about her battle that much more challenging. Her strength has brought tears to my eyes on many occasions. Her will to live -- and live with faith -- is inspiring. She is the 26 year old mother of a one year old little boy, married to a man who has stood by her with a strength that is deeply touching. She has a close family and lots of siblings. She has defeated the odds repeatedly since the beginning. And this morning, I read that there is very little left that can be done for her. My heart is breaking with her and fighting with her.
