Hey.I am so sorry to hear about your neice but just tell your sister to hang on and never stop believing in what our Father God and His Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit can do. Just never beg when you pray,always believe because that shows how much faith we have in Our Maker. I will keep your whole family in my prayers. We accept what God puts in our paths but He will never leave us alone on our paths.God Bless.

dude - that sucks big time
my little bro was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 14 - it was a tough year that followed with chemo and blood cleansing and then finally an bone marrow transplant from an annoymous donor. He is now 34 and going strong. I hope you have the same luck for you neice.

peace and love mate

That must be really worrying for you and your family, not to mention confusing and scary for your little niece. I wish you all the best in dealing with this: knowing that someone you care about is ill and not being able to fix it sucks hard, and I know, because I watched my whole family go through it when I was sick. I hope you're doing okay, or as okay as can be expected.

I don't know how much comfort this is, but ALL has a relatively high cure rate in little kids, around 80-90% if I recall correctly. Your niece has a tough time coming, no doubt about it, but odds are she'll come out the other side. Best wishes to all of you.

I read the blog and was so struck by the thought that one minute everything was going well, and the next there is a situation that is so devastating all of life revolves around it. Our prayers are with you all!

My name is Heather Heaton, and I am a new Alabama author. Please consider helping me introduce my story, a series of ebooks entitled “Her Letters from Prison”, to your friends.

My new ebook series ("Her Letters from Prison") is an inspirational resource for reading pleasure, review, contemplation, and discussion. My own testimony is: "God changed my life in prison!"

"Her Letters from Prison" (Parts 1 & 2) will validate your inquisitive thoughts and doubts about what goes on in women’s prisons (It is what it is!); and it can justify the efforts spent toward women’s prison ministries. These two ebooks can be a motivational (tell-it-like-it-is) resource for drug rehab/prevention and reentry programs, especially when combined with "Her Letters from Prison – Part 4: Recycled – Second Time Around".

"Her Letters from Prison" is a non-fiction, inspirational, romance ebook series; with the original letters (with prison art) included as images for authenticity. My story describes how female offenders are perceived and handled (often abused) in the criminal justice system. The story continues (Part 4) to describe my first two years of re-entry back into the real world and how she ended a destructive narcissistic-codependent relationship.

"Her Letters from Prison: Women-in-Prison" (Part 3) contains two PowerPoint presentations prepared for the University of Alabama/Women's Studies "Women in Prison" conference. Both presentations are based on Parts 1 & 2 of my story; and they are entitled "Women-in-Prison (Almost Invisible)" and "Women-in-Prison (Facts/Myths)". Also, my personal testimony is included in the Part 3 publication.

You can go to, and click on a direct link to my and/or Smashwords "book pages" for “Her Letters from Prison”. Alternatively, you can visit my “author pages”:

My ebooks are also available in paperback format. The paperback book ("Her Letters from Prison") may be obtained by contacting me through my website "contact" form. The paperback book contains Part 1, 2, and 3 ebooks. "Her Letters from Prison - Part 4" will be published as its own paperback book soon.

Also, I have a new book series entitled "Women-in-Prison Short Stories" available now on and Smashwords. These true short stories describe the relationships between individual inmates with severe crime(s) and how the other inmates react to the convicted inmate. The short stories are being published now as individual ebooks; but eventually, they will be grouped together and published as a single composite ebook and perhaps a paperback.
