Please pray for baby Reese

I have a good friend who has a baby Xander's age. Xander and Reese have been friends for almost a year. They have taken Little Gym class together and we have weekly play dates with them. When Reese started at Little Gym she had just finished up with chemotherapy for Neuroblastoma. She had responded well to the treatment. In June she had a scan and was all clear of cancer. Her port was taken out and everyone was so relieved she made it through it all. She just had another follow up scan today and they found out the cancer is back and it is worse than before. She will now have to go through a very invasive surgery where they will collapse one of her lungs to remove the tumors and then will have to go back through chemotherapy.
We love this little girl so much and can't even imagine what they are going through right now. This is Eric and Kristina's first child and they have been on such a roller coaster since they discovered her cancer last year.
Please keep them in your prayers.

This is Reese a week after her first diagnosis and surgery last year:

She is adorable! I hate hearing these kind of stories. (Unfortunately I hear them all the time working at a children's hospital) I pray that everything goes well for her and her family!

This is so heartbreaking. It just makes me so mad that parents and children are faced with this. She is so beautiful, so precious. I'll put their names in the temple tonight, along with our prayers. I feel like I would do ANYTHING to help her be healthy again.
