Prayers for Ben

Ben is my youngest son, he is 11 years old and has been fighting with a brain tumor since he was diagnosed at 2 years old. We are in search of prayers, help, thoughts and if possible funds for medical and funeral costs. On December21, 2017. We were told that there is nothing else we can do for him by his doctors. You see Ben has already had 9 brain surgeries, 2 VP shunts, 18 months of chemo and 6 weeks of radiation proton therapy. His tumor a (pilyocytic astrocytoma) is on his brain stem, it's created 2 cysts and they are blocking off 2 ventricals,wrapped around his sinus cavities, affects his weight, breathing, sleep, sense of smell and hearing. He has had an ommya resevior put in but it failed to help for it clogged. He is also blind in his left eye and his right eye is failing now to. Along with this he has blounts disease which causes his leg bones to twist and bow, he was bed ridden for 6 months unable to walk, but threw all this Ben has never complained, always kept a positive can do attitude, loved everyone he has ever met with a sincere heart, never worried because his momma does it for him, he fights daily with struggles yet always asks the next person if they are alright instead. He knows no stranger, he has faith unmoveable, he will be the first to offer you prayer even in public with nothing to be ashamed of about it. He always looks to make another person happy, to feel appreciated, acknowledged and loved. He's a helping hand to those even when he's bed ridden or sick. He makes homemade gifts to everyone on his mind and never asks for much for himself. He believes so full heartedly in God he asks for all to please remember to stay in his word, try all you can to be good to everyone and remember this is a joyful time, no tears just keep living to keep God remembered for Ben is a living testimony that God is Not Dead, and he is continuing his story of miracles .
