Urgent request for prayers

Last December, shortly before his 18th birthday, Connor Eberhard (above), who lives in Smithville, Ontario, Canada, not very far from Niagara Falls, got word that he had a rare form of cancer and that he had only six months to live. Connor is the only child of his parents Martin and Cathy. I’ve known Cathy and her family, the Devlins, since she was only five.

Connor has been fighting bravely and was on special treatment that might have prolonged his life by up to 18 months. However, I had an email from Maeve Devlin, Cathy’s mother and Connor’s grandmother, this morning in which she said, ‘Connor has slipped into a coma and is not expected to last much longer’.

Please remember Connor and his family in your prayers at this very difficult but blessed and precious time for all of them.
