Fix It Friday - Family

So this week at iheartfaces we have a Fix It Friday that has been on my mind all morning. The Zwart family has been given the news that the patriarch of the family has terminal cancer. Not just any cancer, leukemia.
Leukemia is a cancer that I know all too well. Twelve years ago my mom was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. She was 43. Thankfully her youngest brother was an exact match for a bone marrow transplant. She has had many residual effects of that leukemia but she lived. By God's grace, she survived. Now, here we are twelve years later and she has been diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer. She's 55. We've seen God's miracle once and we are praying for that miracle again for her.
I am now praying for that miracle for Jeff and his family. Please feel free to visit their sites and offer some encouraging words and/or prayers for this young family. Jeff's Caring Bridge site. Adrienne's Blog.
Here is the original photo:
Here is my edit. I cropped, adjust levels and curves, ran Pioneer Woman's seventies action and I was done. Again, please keep this beautiful family in your prayers.
