#PrayersForPaige

On Friday, December 9, 2016, Andrew and Lisa Cook  received the unfortunate news that their sweet four-year-old daughter, Paige, has  leukemia.   They had taken  her to the  doctor because   she had been running a high fever.    The doctor became  concerned with  the severity of the fever and the initial results of blood tests he had performed. More   blood work and an x-ray from the ER confirmed that Paige had small traces of malignant cells in her bloodstream and had a very low white blood cell count as well as pneumonia.  This was  devastating news to the parents because  they  assumed they  would be heading home with antibiotics and that Paige  would be back on her feet within a couple days.

Paige  was too sick to be treated at Dixie Regional Medical Center, so she was  transported by life flight to Phoenix Children’s Hospital where doctors ran another round of blood tests.   The  tests  confirmed cancer the next day, and Paige   has been diagnosed with Type B  Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).    ALL  is the most common and treatable type of childhood cancers with an expected 90% survival rate.  After the initial induction period, Paige's doctors  will use the information they collect to schedule 2.5 years of out-patient therapy that will be presented in 4-week schedules. The amount of treatments will vary from one to the next.

At this time, Andy is staying in Phoenix with Paige, and Lisa will be travelling back and forth over the next few weeks as Paige undergoes her first round of chemotherapy.   They have been set up in an apartment close to the hospital, but because Phoenix is so far away, travel and living expenses will eventually become a burden for the family.   This account is being set up to help Andy and Lisa with  travel/living expenses.   If you do not feel you can make a monetary donation at this time, please leave an encouraging remark in the comments.  Andy and Lisa have been overwhelmed at the response of love and support so far, and they are very grateful to their Heavenly Father for the outpouring of  His love as they navigate this journey.
