A Miracle for Emma

Do you believe in miracles?  Well, this story might have you believing. If you have been following me on Facebook, you've seen this beautiful little girl, 22 month old Emma Grace Overstreet of Jesup,GA, who's battling a rare form of childhood Leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant. The insurance company denied her case.  The family has been struggling trying to raise money to pay for medical bills. Many have heard their story and they've gotten supporters from around the world.

On Saturday, they held a gospel concert and a balloon release in 39 states and 4 countries to show their support for the toddler and her family.  Last night, the family just learned that after the insurance company denied 2 appeals, it finally agreed to pay for the H.M.L. typing test needed for Emma Grace's bone marrow transplant! In fact,the insurance company just let the family know that Emma Grace will get her bone marrow transplant in October!

The family wants to thank everyone for their prayers and financial support. If you would like to learn more about Emma Grace's journey, you can follow her on Facebook by clicking on this link and "liking" the page.
