Praying for Valentina.

My aunt is from Belarus, where her family lives. I was fortunate enough to meet her sister and mom a few years back in England, where we were all vacationing for two weeks. Recently, her sister got married, and after a lot of struggle and dangerous medical problems, she and her husband were blessed with a little baby girl named Valentina. From the very beginning, this little sweetling had some tricky allergies, skin problems and such. A few days ago, she was taken to the hospital with a large cyst on her little two month old neck. Today we found out that the doctors could not operate because of its size and location, and that this little angel has cancer. The hospitals in Belarus do not allow parents to stay overnight in the hospitals, even when the baby is a nursing one. Chemo starts soon, but it is likely that the treatment could be very damaging to her little body, if she survives it at all.
My heart is utterly breaking for them. I can not even begin to process what they must be going through.

Our God is mighty to save. Please ask Him to be with this little family that is suffering so far away.
