Fellow technologist, homeschool father, and Tablet MVP, Rob Bushway, has been sharing his family's ongoing experiences as they care for 9-year old Maggie, who's suffering from brain cancer. Maggie's presently in Children's hospital in St. Louis undergoing additional treatment. Rob's blogging the experience from the hospital.
While she awaits another brain surgery, Maggie's decorating her hospital room and she would like your help. Please take a moment to learn about Maggie, then take two minutes to send her (and her family) an e-card via the hospital web site. (Maggie Bushway, Room 104)
Rob's been a particular encouragement to our family, as we have been facing our own medical challenges as we care for my mother-in-law after her stroke and subsequent brain surgery this summer. I cannot imagine how hard this is for Rob and his wife, Kathi; I praise God for their faith and their willingness to reach out to others during this time.
Rob's been amazingly transparent throughout this ordeal as he shares the grief, pain, and many of the lessons he's learned from this experience. Through it all, he shares his unwavering faith. It's obvious that Rob and his family, in the midst of tremendous pain, is also enjoying the peace that passes all understanding. I know that Rob and his family appreciate your prayers, too.
