A fellow Christian family is celebrating today, after their son, Cannon Perkins had a liver transplant yesterday. Cannon is not yet two years old, and already has been in the hospital more times than most of us ever will. He was diagnosed with Glycogen Storage Disease Type 4, and doctors at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston recommended that he receive a liver transplant to save his life. He has flown back and forth to the hospital for the transplant to take place, only to find that the liver they thought would work for him was not the right size or wouldn't work. Finally, yesterday, Cannon got his new liver, and the surgery was a success.
Please go visit Cannon's website and read about him on the web. If you are led, donate a little to help his parents with the long hospital stay, travel expenses, medical bills, and all the other financial difficulties that have arisen through this ordeal. Please praise our Lord for this sweet child, and pray for his quick healing and that his body accepts and nurtures his new organ for the rest of his life.
