Need prayers and info for Chris Bernal at UCLA

Please pass this on through blogging and tweeting so we can help them:

My dear friend Mary's brother-in-law Chris Bernal is very sick. He was diagnosed with AML-M5 Acute Leukemia a few short weeks ago and tonight his wife was told to get her affairs in order because the outlook is so bleak. This is a guy who two months ago was running marathons and competing in bike races.

They are trying an experimental drug on Chris that will give him a 25% chance of survival IF it doesn't kill him first. PLEASE send your prayers and good wishes out to Chris and his family. If you know anything at all about AML-M5 leukemia that could possibly help this family please email me or leave a comment on this blog so I can pass the word on to the family. Chris is an athlete and a warrior... he is fighting this with everything he has. Please pass the word to send him, his wife, and their son as much healing and love as we can.

Thanks so much everybody,

Hi it's me again, just wanted to give you the link to a great story titled "The Indian Legend"(Author Unknown) that may also be encouraging during this difficult time.

I know how hard these things are. My dad who was very healthy, (ran everyday & worked out) was just diagnosed with 4th stage inoperable lung cancer (no prior signs or symptoms). He is fighting it with everything he has and finds comfort in inspirational stories.

I will keep Chris and his family in my prayers. I have never heard of that particular type of Luechemia. It is so hard to see someone young and vibrant with so much to live for to be struck down like this. Am praying for strength and for that 25% chance.

Hugs to you Jan.
