Day +725 Please Pray for these WAS Children!

Please pray for these children who have Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome and are going through bone marrow transplants:

  1. Zac William Rugless - NSW, Australia - This 10-month old child is very, very sick. His sweet mother and Zac have been in the hospital for 5 months. He is in ICU with major fluid retention problems (around major organs) and heart problems. They want to do a biopsy of his liver to see if he has liver GVHD. He is very weak and susceptible to infections. His older brother had WAS and went through a BMT but not without major setbacks. His older brother is doing well after fighting GVHD for 5 years. Susan, his mother, has been encouraging and helpful to me by providing advice for David's ailments. Please pray for this family and send them a note of encouragement, please!
  2. Sebastian Lazarte - lives in Peru having transplant in Chile, donor from Gainsville Florida - This family is very sweet. The mother is very well educated. Sebastian has a 5/6 MUD (matched unrelated donor) from Florida. He is having chemo right now to make room for the new cells. Please pray their transplant is successful. Please pray that Ivonne, the mother, has peace during this difficult time.

I am praying for David. I hadn't checked your blog in a while, I will keep David and the other kids you mentioned in prayer. I especially loved the video that you made for David recently, so I just had to post to tell you! My favorite pictures were the ones of the kids in the hallway in their swimsuits. Great job!!!

Hi Aimee, i`m Manuel, Ivonne Lazarte`s husband and Sebastian`s dad. Thak you wery much for your mention about my son in your blog it`s seen that the prayer are working, he has a white cells count of 800 at the day 12 after his transplant. Tomorrow he will have the chimerism test to define the engraftment is true or not, so we are still praying.
In addition we want to thank you for all the information thayou are writing in you blog, actually it is like a map to go through this extremely hard road that means a bone marrow transplant. Thanks to you again and we are sure that god is bleesing David and you for this wonderful help that you mean to other people that are sufering the same.
