I am wondering if have a moment to pray for a little boy? Bridger is the 4 year old son of a co-worker of my DH. The day before July 4th they were at a family BBQ and noticed that Bridger was acting a little strange. They rushed him to the ER to find out he needed to be flown over to Seattle at the Children's Hospital immediately. They spent the day and the 4th of July running tests and bone marrow to find he has a very aggressive form of Cancer called Burkitt’s Lymphoma. This comes on rapidly and progress rather rapidly as well. Bridger started Chemo through the spine immediately on Friday and has had several other tests among the chemo. The parents are scared and shocked at all this happening so rapidly especially when he was just *normal* the day before. They are very sweet people and could use your prayers for Bridger.
Bridger is a huge fan of the color green and tractors. So I went to the John Deer website as they have some coloring pages and activities for kids. I printed off a few pages for him to color and created a coloring book for him. made a little pocket on the front to hold his crayons and soem pencils. The card is using Got Tractor from Clear Dollar Stamps. My sentiment pulling for you is suppose to look like the smoke coming out of the pipe on the tractor. hee hee Thanks for saying a prayer for Bridger, I know his parents will appreciate all the prayers they can get. Have a great day!

How very thoughtful and kind of you. May our Father in Heaven meet every need of this family and child. Your project is a wonderful way to bring a smile during a very difficult time.

This is such a wonderful set Stacy and I'm so sorry you had to create it for such a sad reason. My thoughts and prayers are with Bridger and his family as they deal with everything that lies ahead for them.
