Please help!!

Please pray for Little Warrior

Not again, not a child.

But it is Cancer. Again. I have been following this blog for over a year now and I cried when I read the results. Little Warrior is 3 and fighting Cancer AGAIN!

But her mom has thought of a BRILLIANT idea, When little warrior is old enough to understand and asks "Why me mom?" She wants to explain that although its something bad and yes it happened to you look at all the good that came from it.

She is making a book for her. A book about people "Paying it forward" for Little Warrior

Here is what Lizard Eater Asks:

What You Can Do
Thank you for all of the prayers and the requests to help. Please don't think I've been avoiding the latter, or blowing off the offers of beads, cookies, anything. I am humbled by your offers and have been giving some serious thought to what we need.
You know what I need?
A way to explain to LW when she's older that even though I empathically do NOT believe this happened for a reason ... short of finding the cure for all cancer, there could not be a reason that would justify this happening to her ... even though this didn't happen for a reason, good still sprang from it. As good can spring from heartbreaking situations.
At the risk of sounding like a lifetime movie or a book by Mitch Albom ... I want to give her a book of good deeds done in her name.
So, my friends ... you asked, here's my answer.
Do a good deed, one you wouldn't ordinarily do. Give a banana to the homeless guy, take a Starbucks gift card to a nurse and ask her to give it to a Mom or Dad who really needs it. Mow someone's lawn.
And then tell me about it.
You can post it here, or post it on your blog and send me the link. Or email it to lizardeater at gmail dot com.
I'll compile all those and get a book printed.
And when she's old enough to ask, "Why?" I'll explain that there is no why. But that good things can still result. And that there were a whole bunch of people sending her love, and the way they showed that love was through action.
