Prayers for Tanners girlfriend

Tanner's little Ella needs our prayers! Her little body has transitioned into leukemia. I talked to Heather yesterday and she was quite worried about that white count. Not a few hours later we got a text from Denise that they were admitting her and that they thought she had transitioned. I talked to Denise last night and of course she is always upbeat. She will be the perfect cancer mom, and Ella the perfect warrior.
Tanner doesn't understand what leukemia is, so when I told him he just shrugged his shoulders and continued playing. Ella is his little girlfriend. When we saw them in March he was bound and determined to sneak her in our car and bring her home.

I'm ready to hop on a plane now and go down there to help. But we'll be there in less than a month, so I can kiss my sweet girl again.
Time to rally for another cancer warrior!
If you want to send something to Ella, email me privately at I have addresses!
