Oh Jessica...you are such a brave warrior yourself.  I'm so sorry for all of this pain your family is facing, and enduring daily.  Brooke, and all of you are in my prayers constantly, and I "pray" Brooke's own cells will give her the boost she needs to kick this monster.  God be with you and give you strength.  Lord hear all our prayers. <3

Our prayer for you, your family, and Home

Grant them peace, most precious gift of all
Keep the worried world far away and small
When they return, may quiet fill their souls,
Dearest Lord, keep them safe within it's walls.

May the stone be cool beneath their feet.
The canyon breezes circle soft and sweet
When darkness falls, the stars and opal moon
Find them wrapped in each other, ever warm.

May it be a refuge for their love,
A harbor for their deepest prayer.
May they come to flourish in the grove,
Grow ever nearer to You there.

Many a burdened friend in their company rises,
A heavy heart is soon released to fly.
May their table be blessed with laughter and with grace
And by the comfort of kinship be surprised.

May it be a refuge for their love,
A harbor for their deepest prayer.
May they come to flourish in the grove,
Grow ever nearer to You there.

May the cold wind blow far from their front door
May the winter rains never bring them harm
May their hearthfires burn throughout the night
Grant them peace until morning's perfect light.

May it be a refuge for their love,
A harbor for their deepest prayer.
May they come to flourish in the grove,
Grow ever nearer to You there.

Hold fast to Hebrews 6:19 ⚓️ 

Sending you love and hugs

I have never introduced myself- but have watched and prayed over your battle. Our son is battling this same, awful disease. Just a quick response to the MMR vaccine- I have always been told that children are NOT contagious after this injection despite the fact that it is live. They do not recommend giving it to individuals who are immunosuppressed, but say that household contacts can stay on schedule?

What a beautiful posting about a very special girl! Brooke is truly a trooper in the
truest sense of the word. Yes, you have 2 beautiful children. No child deserves what
Brooke is going through.  As all of you, I storm the heavens with prayers to cure this
horrible disease that is affecting so many of our babies and young ones.
I send much love, hugs and prayers to all of the Hester family!

So thankful Brooke is home and surrounded by her loving family. Praying for Brooke and her sweet family. Amazed at all you both do and the monies raised for Childhood Cancer while you battle for Brooke. Beautiful Brooke and Benjamin are very lucky children to have such a Wonderful Warrior Mommy!!!
Brooke's darling picture speaks volumes of her determination, strength, fun, drive, and delightful personality amid all she endures daily. Looks like she is ready for July 4th! Have an amazing holiday with your adorable children and wonderful husband. Know our prayers and hope are with you every day!!!

Just a note of encouragement to take to heart the knowledge that God's love for you is never ending and His purpose for you is bigger than any problems we could ever struggle with. God promises to fill our needs as we share compassion and His love to others. Even while you walk through the difficult burdens and trials in your life continue to look for opportunities to encourage and uplift others and we know you will be enriched.

But be wise and prepare yourself "Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace." Protect yourself  "In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God," and strengthen yourself "praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication." Stay on God's focus for you "To that end keep alert with all perseverance,"  Ephesians 6:14-18 

With a focus on God not promising to always gift us with what we "want" but does promise to provide what He knows we "need," remember with God ALL things truly are possible. May you see fruit of His work on you, with you, though you, and around you.

We continue to cover you in prayer. Hold fast to Hebrews 6:19 ⚓️ 

Sending you love and hugs

You and your family are amazing. Brooke is incredible. I have been following your journey through caringbridge for a long time and pray for Brooke and your family each day. You are such a beautiful writer and I appreciate you sharing Brooke's journey. I pray that she will continue to feel good and that her scan results just get better and better. Brooke is truly such an inspiration. I want to become a pediatric oncology nurse (currently going into my freshman year of college) and Brooke is the kind of person that inspires me to want to work in this field. I will continue praying for you all.
