The Story

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!

"But as for me, I will always have hope." Psalm 71:14

Lauren has her scans this evening and results tomorrow. Please pray that tumors are continuing to respond to the trial chemotherapy. Please also pray that doctors will find a way to treat the almost constant pain she is having in her liver and stomach.

From Lauren's fb page (for those not following it): I'm having a hard time emotionally with today's trip and scans because of the new and almost constant pain I've been having in my liver/stomach area. Please send up extra prayers that the pain is from the chemo killing the tumors, not that the tumors are growing.

I need to remember what the Lord says in Isaiah 55:8 "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not My ways." "For He knows the plans He has for me, plans to prosper me and not harm me, plans to give me hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11. The problem is that I want the future I have planned, a future growing old with Eric and watching Leighton grow up. Please pray for peace and acceptance, hope and complete healing.

Thank you everyone for all your love and prayers!

Saturday she goes to MDA for a scan to see how much, if any the cancer has grown or spread since October. This scan will also help be a baseline & monitor how the clinical drug is working. Please continue to pray that it will work & for minimal side effects!!! Thank you to everyone that has been praying for Lauren & her family. It means so much to have so many amazing people on her side praying for her. Much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
