Last winter, a young Redeemer woman was diagnosed with leukemia. After a successful bone marrow transplant from her sister, she seemed to be on the mend as the cancer started to go into remission. Earlier this summer, it was back with a vengeance and she spent much of her time in an induced coma to allow her body to use all of its strength to fight back. This week, her condition has deteriorated to the point where her family made the difficult decision to take her off of her respirator yesterday afternoon. They say that no news is good news, and as of yet we have not received another update from our university chaplain. Please keep this young woman and her family in your prayers, as well as her former dormmates who are going about the business of keeping up with their day to day school work in the midst of this.
