In 2010, just months after getting married, sweet Lauren was diagnosed with clear cell sarcoma, a very rare form of cancer, and after multiple surgeries - the Lord healed her.
In 2013, just months after giving birth to her precious baby girl, Leighton, her scans have shown that the cancer has returned and it has spread. It is in her liver again and there are also tumors in her lung and hip.
She will have to undergo many different treatments this time. First, her doctors want to target the painful tumor on her hip bone because they're worried it may fracture just from the day to day walking. Starting the last week in October, she will receive radiation every day for three weeks on her hip bone. After the radiation, the plan is to do some sort of chemotherapy for 3-4 months and then possibly surgery.
Right now the doctors are in search of a chemotherapy that her extremely rare cancer will respond to. Please pray for healing for her hip bone, as it is very painful for her, but also for the doctors to find a chemotherapy that her cancer will respond to.
Your donations will help with the day to day medical and other miscellaneous expenses of treating Lauren’s cancer. For example, the trips to her doctors’ appointments and daily radiation treatment are over 100 miles round trip.
If you wish to send a check directly to Lauren and Eric, please send an email to the administrator of this site and we will email you where to send it.
We will continue to post updates on Lauren’s treatment onto this website. You can also show your support by “liking” the Love for Lauren Barnhart Reed page on Facebook.
Thank you so much! Keep the faith and keep praying!
