This is who you're praying for....

This is our sweet girl, Sydney! You'd never know in a million years that anything could possibly be wrong. But Sydney has NF1 with a VERY large plexiform tumor. This tumor is around her aorta, her left lung, her trachea, and her spinal cord. She also has a pretty significant concave chest. There is no cure and the only treatment option available is surgery and she is NOT a candidate for surgery. It would be TOO risky for her. As you can see God already has his hand on her. Just look at her...oh my, she's just a doll! Thanks for stopping by and please add her to your prayers.

Sydney is always in my prayers. Is her prognosis going to let her have a long life? Sydney is such a beautiful child, and it is so obvious, just looking at her, that she is very much loved.

Praying for that little one who has your heart so in knots.

Sydney is certainly in our prayers. I will have her added to the prayer list at church as well.

I just heard about Sydney from another blog (Room For at least One More), and I came write over to read your blog. I will be keeping Sydney and your whole family in my prayers. You have a BEAUTIFUL daughter. God is taking care of her and is using you to do this. Thanks for sharing your story.

Your daughter is so beautiful. I linked over to you from Room For at Least One More. I will be praying for Sydney and for peace for your family. And you're right, she is already a miracle!

Your daughter is beautiful! I wanted to let you know I am praying for you, and also to mention Shriners as a possible option?? I know her tumor is her primary concern, but we are taking our daughter for her chest wall deformity and scoliosis. They are actually having to create a device specifically for our daughter to give her lung space.

They are cutting edge and maybe they could help.

I will be praying ferverantly for Sydney.

Chad and Sandy,
Your daughter is just GORGEOUS!!!! Thank you for sharing her pics with the world. I found your blog (and prayer request) on Susannah's blog. As a mom of three, you can count me in for prayers for your precious Sydney. I am going to bookmark your blog and check back from time to time to see how things are going. In the meantime...prayers going up to Him for your precious little one.

I linked over from another blog(Room for at least one more). Oh my, what a gorgeous child! And what an amazing story. I already have started prayers for Sydney and your entire family. Would it be OK to send your blog to others I know would pray for a miracle for Sydney? One year ago my daughter, who has 2 daughters from China, had to have emergency brain surgery and I was told she might not make it. I asked my friends to pray, and my daughter is doing great...I believe strongly in the power of prayer.
