Please Pray

There is a blog that I have followed for a little while now. More specifically, I had read about Eva on one of the other blogs I read and recently checked out Eva's own blog. I just adored her outlook and spunky personality, and read through her archives in about two weekends. She received a double lung transplant a couple years ago because of cystic fibrosis, and has been in chronic rejection for some time. A few months ago, Eva posted a vlog saying goodbye to her readers and friends because she was told that she'd be passing very soon. She's lived for a while since then.

Sadly for her family, she passed away this morning. I know they had time to prepare, but it can't be easy to let her go. But she can breathe now, and is at peace. Please keep her family and friends in your prayers. Eva made a huge difference to a lot of people, raised tons of money for Canada's cystic fibrosis charities, and educated so many people about her disease and organ donation. Thank God for her life, her honesty, and her spirit.

God bless her and her family...I had a cousin who had a lung transplant (not a double one, tho - mercy!) and his body rejected it :( People like Eva and my cousin should be an inspiration to all of us.
