Please pray for Ashleigh

I just received this email forwarded from a Vanderbilt Doctor. Let's stand with them and Pray for this child.......

Family and Friends,
Please pray for my patient Ashleigh. She is a 15yo who will die very soon if she doesn't get a heart transplant. She has been in the hospital and on the waiting list for transplant since the beginning of June - she was diagnosed at 2 months of age with Dilated Cardiomyopathy that we've been following her whole life. Until recently she was doing well on just medicines but now her heart has become too sick. She was stable in the Vanderbilt Children's Pediatric ICU until Friday night when she arrested, had CPR, and was intubated. She's now on a breathing maching and awake - she writes notes to her family and medical team that say "Am I going to die?" and "Please don't let me die." She and her family are methodist - as her doctors we've done all we can and now are left with our strongest defense - PRAYER! Please pray with me that a heart is available for her soon.

  3. I will pray for her. It makes me sad though either way because for her to live means someone has just died. :( Life is so precious and I pray she has a long life ahead of her.

  4. Though 1000 may fall at Ashleighs side and 10000 at her right hand no harm will come to Ashleigh (psalm 91). I also pray that she knows that God doesnt give the spirit of fear but the spirit of power, love and a sound mind. (2 tim 1:7)

    Agreeing with you for a healing here on earth.

    Be blessed
