Our son was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of two. We battled the cancer for three years, and in June of 2015 Cooper’s treatment ended, thanks be to God!
Along the way, God placed several families in our life – other people battling childhood cancer who understood the unique struggles we were facing.
One of these families is the Hackers. Their daughter, Lolo, was also diagnosed with leukemia in 2012.
Things were going well for Lolo until recently when her cancer came back.
We were heartbroken by this news and have joined with other people all over the world to pray for 14-year-old Lolo, who is currently in the hospital receiving chemo – fighting, once again, for her life.
In addition to the prayers, people have been making signs that say “Go Lolo Go” and sending a picture of themselves and their sign to Lolo from all over the world.
Fighting cancer is a lonely, isolating battle. These “Go Lolo Go” signs have been an awesome reminder for Lolo, her parents, and all of us that we are a network of believers, connected and praying for one another throughout the world.
- Make a sign that says “Go Lolo Go.” Handmade is great. It doesn’t have to be fancy!
2. Go to a special place where you feel God’s presence – whether that’s the top of a mountain or your own back yard.
3. Say a special prayer for Lolo and her family.
4. Take a picture of you holding up your Go Lolo Go sign.
5. Send your picture directly to Lolo by clicking this link: Go Lolo Go!
We are all connected in this world – a communion of saints standing strong in Christ.
Therefore, encourage one another and build one another up, as indeed you do. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
