While many can say they've faced some type of trial or difficult circumstance in their life, not all show the kind of faith and strength that Abigail Jensen and her parents have illustrated over the past year.
At age 4, Abigail was diagnosed with a rare and inoperable brain tumor. However, Abigail, now 5 years old, says she is "kicking brain tumor butt."
When first diagnosed with the tumor, doctors pursued a treatment option that included chemotherapy and radiation. Shortly after, she was put on a trial medication as part of a study being conducted by the hospital. This was later coupled with radiation.
Incredibly, Abigail's tumor was shown to have shrunk by two-thirds in October. And at her December appointment, the tumor had shrunk even more according to doctors.
Abigail's mother, Maegan, recently told doctors, "Your medicine and our prayers are a really good combination. It seems to be working out really well."
There's no question that Abigail's story is miraculous. Modern medicine is wonderful and an incredible blessing, but the power of prayer should never be dismissed.
Keep fighting the good fight, Abigail. Our prayers are with you.
