Ward’s Story

My name is Ward Wright and I am 8 years old. I was diagnosed on April 22, 2009 (at age 3 ½) with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Please pray for me.

My name is Ward Wright and I am 8 years old.  I was diagnosed on April 22, 2009 (at age 3 ½) with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma (solid tumor cancer).  My parents are Maranda & Tom and my little sister is Hallie Kay.  We live in Albany, Georgia where we attend Gillionville Baptist Church and I attend 2nd grade at Deerfield Windsor School.  I love to play outside with my dog, Dooly, and also enjoy golfing with Daddy and baseball.  I have been cancer-free for 3 years and I praise the Lord every day for His healing!

Great is Thy faithfulness!!

Ward has visited the Survivor Clinic for the second time now and things seem to be going well!  We do have a couple of minor issues that are a result of treatment but we are trusting in God's sovereignty and provision to get us past these hurdles!! Sometimes my flesh wants to worry but I'm reminded by some powerful lyrics from the song "Oceans" (by Hillsong United) "You've never failed and You won't start now."  Great is Thy faithfulness!!

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!!

In His Love,

This is such good news. Jennifer and I were just wondering the other day how your family was doing. We too are so blessed with Miller's health status and are so thankful for the grace we have been showered with. May you and your family have a wonderful holiday.
