No words….

Standard

It is with great sadness that I post tonight. Phoebe’s cancer has come back. She has a new tumor growing in her brain at the original tumor site, and a new tumor growth on her spine. Because the tumor site in her brain is in such a sensitive/integral area, it would not be ethical to radiate. She has already had the most intense chemotherapy protocol available; more chemo will not knock out these new tumors. We can expect to have 2-8 more weeks with our precious girl, unless we witness a miracle. We are clinging to the hem of His garment…Thank you all for praying for our family. We love you.

About Amey Fair

I am Amey Fair, wife to Nathan, and home-educating Mom to Benjamin (9), Averic (7), Deacon (4) and Phoebe (2) . Phoebe was diagnosed with a rare childhood malignant brain cancer called Atypical Teratoid Rabdoid Tumor on January 1, 2012. She had complete resection surgery to remove the tumor on January 4th and began chemotherapy using the Dana Farber protocol on January 26th. A few weeks ago I was sleeping in the chair next to Phoebe's bed in the hospital when I heard her little voice drawing me out of sleep. It was 3 am and it took me a minute to shake off the slumber. "Mommy I'm a mean girl" I thought she said. "No Phoebe, you're a nice girl!" I replied. "No Mommy, I'm a MIRACLE!" Phoebe said. "I'm a MIRACLE, I'm a MIRACLE, I'm a MIRACLE!" she continued on. My tears welled up and spilled over as she made her declaration. Phoebe doesn't know the word "miracle" nor the concept, she's only 2. It was as if the Lord was speaking through her like a prophetic utterance. She fell right back to sleep and I sat there awake, lingering in the magical moment. Less than 40 children are diagnosed with Phoebe's type of cancer in the U.S. each year. This is why it's called "ATYPICAL Teratoid Rabdoid Tumor". So, I have titled this blog in honor of Phoebe, our "Atypical Miracle". We are YWAM'ers, serving in missions through Youth With A Mission since 1998. Before returning to the states 1 year ago, we lived near Guadalajara Mexico for 3 years. It was during our year of agricultural missions training in Waco, TX that Phoebe began exhibiting symptoms from the pressure of the tumor on her brain. Weight loss, lethargy, extreme thirst and vomiting were her symptoms. We have been granted sabbatical during this time to focus on Phoebe's intensive chemotherapy treatment and are renting a home in Dallas near the Children's hospital where Phoebe is being treated. Like the woman who touched the hem of Jesus' robe in Luke chapter 8, we cling to Him, knowing that He is Phoebe's healer. If we can just touch Him, be near Him, bring Phoebe to Him each day, we have hope. He is our hope. Thank you for coming along on this journey with our family. It's therapeutic for me to write it all out, and in so doing, I hope God will use it for His glory.

I am sending all the love and warmth possible and feel that while the time frame is short- the long term prognosis with her Heavenly Father offers some comfort! With Much Love – Cheri Perry

    P.S. What can we do to help during these next few weeks? What do you need as a family?

  3. Dear Fair family,

    I am so sorry to have read your last post. It so saddens me to read of her new onset. I will continue to pray for her healing and for your strength to go through this journey with her. I am so thankful that God has given you the time that you have had with Phoebe and will pray that God will continue to bring healing to her little body. God is gracious and He is in control. So I will pray too that we, as believers, understand that He loves us and knows our every need and He will continue to hold Phoebe close to His side.

    Thank you for update and the honor to pray for your little one and your family.

    God bless,
    Shawna

  4. I’m so sorry but God is a God of miracles & I will be praying for one for Phoebe. My heart aches for you all. I ask for Him to surround your family with His big, strong arms & hold you all close. Love & blessings, Elaine Sellers

  5. Really sad to read this Nathan, Amey and family. You have endured so much, and you have kept your faith on the higher level. I will pray for you all and for Phoebe’s little body to heal.

  6. Amey and Family, my heart is heavy tonight as I read the news about Phoebe. All is in HIS hands and we lift her up to The Lord once again and utter “Thy Will Be Done”. Phoebe is such a precious gift and had touched so many lives. I pray for peace for Phoebe and your entire family. With Love. Greg and Kerry

  7. I was so hopeful for a different outcome. My heart breaks along with yours. Though we aren’t always priviledged to understand the whys of life, it’s clear to me that Phoebe has been in the perfect place for her time here. I’ve witnessed your faith and know that it will help to comfort and sustain you. Thank you for so generously sharing your precious girl.

  8. Dear Amey and Nathan, This is heart breaking…I was so thrilled to think she was through all the chemo..and you all could be relaxed and just be a family again. Love and you have my prayers. Gerry Volberding

  9. May the Lord Bless and Keep You All. Much love headed your way. Pheobe is a very special and wonderful girl and I have been blessed and touched by her little spirit and the love and grace your family has shown through all this. Phoebe is a miracle.

  10. Everyone in our church will be praying in Brazil, also will mark days of fasting, we all believe in the miracle, the little Phoebe is a great miracle.
    Ronald Campos – Pastor Senior

  11. There are no words. Just know that we will press in on prayer, spread the word and continue the battle for Phoebe and pray peace and guidance over you two as you make decisions with your caregivers.

  12. Despite not personally knowing you, I feel that I know you. I have 3 little girls Phoebe’s age & have been praying for you, her & your family since the beginning. My heart is breaking for you right now. The faith you have shown has been an inspiration to me & I know many others around the world. I don’t have any words other than God is Good, we must believe that. Phoebe has touched more people in her little life than most do in a lifetime. I will continue to pray for her healing and for her precious mother Amy.

  13. Many prayers for you and your beautiful little angel. May God keep her close to him and heal her. May she live with out pain and only know what is beautiful and live life to the fullist. May God keep your family closer in this time to give you strength and bring more love to all of you!

  14. We have been following your journey. Not sure how we came across it. We have been praying for you and Phoebe along with some other families that we have shared your story with. We are all sad to hear the news. We will continue to pray for a miracle for sweet Phoebe and your family.
    With heavy hearts,

  15. Oh, Amy and Nathan – that’s heartwrenching news. There are just no suitable words. We just lost our 23-year-old son to sudden cardiac arrest, and have been struggling with the grief, but I hang on to two things: God is good, and God is sovereign. Beyond that it becomes very murky and filled with unanswerable questions. May you cling to Him through this and treasure whatever time He allows you to have with your precious little girl. Underneath are the everlasting arms.

  16. I am so sorry. I pray that however long Pheobe has left on this earth is peaceful. I have been following this blog from the beginning and I have 2 little girls. This certainly makes me cherish them even more.

  17. We at CCR will hold your dear precious girl up for Jesus to be with her, and we ask Him to be with each member of your family. Our prayers will continue.

  18. Adding your family to our prayers at the Womens Bible Cafe. May your days together be precious in His sight. May you find comfort together as a family and may your faith carry you through. Much love….

  19. Amey I am so awfully sorry. So deeply saddened for you and Nathan and the boys. Phoebe knows she’s going to see Jesus, but I am not comforted by that. I’m so angry and sad. This is so wrong. I’m sorry. I’m sorry.

  20. Praying for Phoebe, and your family………Reach out and touch HIS garment ,,,,,,,,, HE is there…….God is with you in this time of need……He will never leave you…….

  21. My heart is sad… We’ve been praying for precious Phoebe and will continue believing for a miracle. May God’s grave be with the family. Love Phoebe

  22. Our hearts are breaking hearing this news about your precious child. Phoebe has touched our lives and so has your family although we have never met. Jennifer, our daughter told us of Phoebe’s incredible love for Jesus, and how she would wake up praising Him in the night. Her life is a testament to all that we are more than conquerors through Christ our Lord. We will continue to hold her up in prayer for a healing miracle, for your strength to comfort her , encourage her and lessen her pain. Let us know what else we can do to help you.
    In His Hands, Alice and Joe Giunta

  23. Oh, Amey, I have no words…all I have is to tell you I am praying so hard for your sweet baby and your family. God is still with you. Hold onto Him and he will show you the way.

  26. Fair Family,
    We are literally on our knees at home tonight praying through tears over sweet Phoebe, her parents, and her brothers. Know you are loved and prayed for during this difficult time.
    Big hugs,
    The Axtons

  27. We have no words to express how sad we were to read about Pheobe. We are praying for her and for you all. Your faith has been a tremendous witness to so many. Thank you for letting us go on this journey and sharing your precious angel. We love you all!

  28. Praying for your family. Even my 5 yr ol son is feeling the sadness. We may not understand God’s will in our lives but we can surely trust in His will. I know God is with her and with your family. May you find comfort and peace that passeth all understanding from God.

    God loves you. I know that.

  29. I saw this story on Facebook and felt like God wanted me to encourage you. I love that you are trusting God in this situation. God is faithful and has good plans. I am praying for you and your family. Zephaniah 3:17 is on my heart for you. The Lord your God is with you he’s mighty to save.

  30. Dear Amey and Nathan, Those of us who responded to the broader net which was cast this week I know have been deeply touched by Phoebe’s light, her spirit, her amazing sense of herself which you shared with your pictures and your blog. I shall continue to stand believing with you that love never fails and with God ALL things are possible. May the peace which passes all human understanding guard your hearts and your minds as you walk through this season, undergirded and upheld by His Love and His strength. (~I’m so glad Phoebe got to play in the snow!!)

  31. I have prayed for your beautiful daughter. I hope with all my heart that she will get married some day and this will be a memory. 😦 I am sure you do too! God bless you.

  32. I am sorry that this precious angel and your family are having to endure this. I do not know you but I have experienced a child with cancer. He is well now but I can imagine the fear the sadness. I will be praying for your family. Praying God wraps his arms around you and overwhelms you with his love, comfort and his strength.

  33. Oh Amey….my heart just broke, reading this post. I am so, so sorry that your family has to face this. I am praying that God performs the miracle that is so desperately needed, and Phoebe will be well. My prayers for all your family as well – this is going to be so difficult for the other kids, it just makes me cry.

    God is with you, and that is the best comfort I know of in times of great sorrow. Cling to Him, pray to Him and may He answer those prayers with a miracle. May His love and grace give you the strength you need to get through these coming days and weeks. I will continue to pray for a miracle for Phoebe.

    My heart and prayers go out to you all. God be with you all.

    Much love,
    Pamela

  34. Oh Amey and Nathan!! My heart is breaking for you and your family. I am so, so sorry.

    Nothing is impossible for God and so we don’t give up but press in more for a miracle.

    Father, You hear the cry of our hearts. We cry out to You, Healer, Creator, to touch and heal Phoebe here on earth. Only You Lord can do this so we wait in hope that this prayer is in accordance to Your will. In the name of Jesus, amen.

    Praying and praying

  35. Saddened to hear this latest report on Phoebe’s battle. I will continue to pray for strength for your whole family as you love and care for your sweet child. God bless you all.

  36. I have been following your story for quite awhile thru my good friend Anne. I feel a connection due do losing my father to cancer when I was in high school. Your blog today was titled “no words” and that couldn’t be more true. I feel as if I know Phoebe personally at this point and it just broke my heart. What a little fighter she has been through all of this. Most adults could not be strong enough for that. Phoebe has been so lucky to live on this earth with a family that loved and cherished her! My hope for you all is that you spend every moment that you have now living and hugging, loving and holding her. Possibly in ways that you couldn’t while going thru treatment. In the meantime, I am sure everyone around your family will pray for a miracle. I know that I will. Thank you for sharing a little bit of Phoebe with all of us. I am sure I speak for everyone by saying our lives were enriched by her presence!

  37. I have no words, except for those of comfort. We are sending many prayers for your family tonight. We have shed many tears over your story, but we know deep down that God is with y’all and with her. Many prayers from Texas.

    Much love,
    Matt & Meggie

  38. As I struggle to see through the tears while I write this post, I know God’s plans are perfect. His love is perfect. Yours and Nathan’s faith, as we have watched you walk this path God has put you on, has been unwavering. We lift your family up in prayer for a comfort that only God can give. We have come to love your family like a member of our family.

  39. I’m devastated reading your most recent post …you have all been through so much. I am praying hard and often for a miracle. I am so sorry you have to go through more pain and suffering … please know that you have my thoughts, prayers and hugs to add all of the other support holding you up.

  40. Dear Fair Family,

    Phoebe IS a miracle! A miracle she was born perfect, a miracle of love, a miracle she is still here with you despite all that has happened thus far. And whether God chooses to take her Home or leave her here with you awhile longer, it will also be a miracle of faith that you can use her circumstances to lead so many more to God. Her life has great purpose.

    I know you are grieving this development, but know how loved she is and you are by the Creator of the Universe and so many who have gathered round to love and support you in prayer and any way we can.

    For now I will cry with you and intercede with the Father that His perfect will be done.

    Love and prayers,
    Pamela

  41. Praying for all of you, asking Jesus to continue to shower you with peace, love, and a miracle for dear sweet Phoebe, His child of light.

  42. You have an incredible family and I have been blessed to have been praying for you all and i will continue to do so. Embrace each moment, God is at each one loving you unconditionally.
    With Much love and prayer.

  43. I just saw this so I will begin to pray for Phoebe. I pray for a healing of this beautiful little girl. Jesus loves all the little children and I pray he can relieve her pain and cure her. God Bless.

  44. Amey,

    I am writing because I have something to give – I am a baby and family photographer in Frisco, TX and I am available immediately to take photographs of your gorgeous girl and your family. Completely complimentary – it would be my absolute honor to capture your family’s love for all time. Please call me asap if you are interested – my cell # is 469-450-8744. (my website is http://www.sunflower-photography.com and my fb is: http://www.facebook/mysunflower-photography.com)

  45. Amey & Nathan, My church is praying & Phoebe has been on my mind non-stop. My pastor asked if you’ve heard of a Dr. Burzynski? Please google him & see what you think. Love & hugs, Elaine Sellers

  46. Thank you Lord that YOU are a God of miracles!! A God of wonder, strength, encouragement and peace. Thank you Lord that we can come before Your throne with our pain, our tears, and our needs. Father I lift this family up to you. I cannot imagine the pain they are going through but I am amazed at the faith of this mother. I pray for Your spirit to flood this family. Surround them, hold them, comfort them, and love them. We do not always understand Your ways but I always trust that You are Good and Your ways are Good. I hold on to that promise. Father I know you can heal Phoebe and if it is Your will please, please, send healing. In the Name of Jesus, touch Phoebe. Heal her body. Restore her to better than before. Remove this cancer. I pray for a complete healing. Let the doctors be amazed and have no other choice than to give YOU praise. You are a Holy, Holy God and I come in humbleness, yet also in the boldness that You have given Your children. Heal Phoebe Father. Heal her. Amen

  47. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. The same Jesus that walked the earth 2,000 years ago, performing miracles, is still in the miracle business today. Be bold! Take authority over the devil and this horrible cancer. Remind yourself constantly of the sacrifices made on the cross so that Phoebe could be healed and made whole. This will be a testimony heard around the world. Believers, let’s interceed together! I will be praying. A thousand shall fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will NOT come near you (the Fair household).

  48. Thanks for sharing your precious Phoebe with us. Our hearts are breaking for you. Jesus hold them tight! Cindy Grimes

  49. I watched her life story and she is one amazing little angel. I can not fathom what you all have gone through and continue to go through. I am saddened by her new MRI findings but I know God has a plan for all of us, and she is in his hands. I pray for complete healing by the blood of Jesus and that His will be done. I pray for your whole family for strength and peace. I will continue to pray for you. God bless.

  50. Heavenly Father, we need a miracle. As I lift up little Phoebe to you this morning, I pray for complete healing of the tumors in her little body, and for peace and comfort for this family I don’t even know. Thank You, Lord, for what You’re already doing in the lives this family to glorify You even through this. Thank You for blessing the world with precious Phoebe. Please heal her. ~In Your name, Amen.

  51. Such a beautiful spirit in your sweet girl, and an amazing love evident in your family. I am praying for a miracle, and for strength to face each new day in His peace.

  52. Words cannot express the sadness I feel hearing the latest on your precious angel. I will continue to pray for Phoebe and all those who love her. God be with you during this difficult time.

  53. I’ve been praying for little Phoebe bird this morning. I KNOW God is great. I KNOW God is still in the business of doing miracles. I KNOW God loves your family and little Phoebe. He is ever faithful.I will continue to pray for His healing touch and comforting presence for you all.

  54. I know Zoe’s family, and have read through your whole story months ago and it has stayed with me since I read it. I am so grieved for you and your beautiful daughter, your beautiful family. She is such an amazing creation, I can’t help but see God’s will at work here, but as a mother of four, and ache for you. God bless, will keep you in our prayers.

  55. Dear Fair Family,
    Our hearts are crying out; our eyes are crying out; even the rocks are crying out to the Lord as we cling with you to His hem, trusting Him to keep His promise in spite of what the world says. He said she was healed! We continue to pray unceasingly for the miracle child he sent you. He has undoubtedly healed many hearts through her; brought many families closer together; healed realtionships; and even brought some to Christ through her sweet smile and the valiant fight she fought. We still praise Him but ask for more. We are not giving up, hoping for the miracle to continue. Cancer is nothing for our God. We face this with you in prayer, hand in hand going into battle for His glory. We love you all so much and wish we could take your pain away.

  56. My heart is deeply saddened by this news. We are praying for a miracle to heal your precious girl. Her life has already been miraculous, and a blessing to many. May God give you the grace and peace you need to carry you all through this difficult trial.

    Praying for you in Cincinnati, Ohio…

  57. Lord, Your mercies are new every morning. Your timing is always perfect. Your compassions are always ministering to our inward parts. Father we trust Your hand to heal and we accept Your perfect will. Fill Your children with joy, hope and peace! Calm our hearts with eternal trust. Direct our steps with Your perfect wisdom. Let Your love shine upon Nathan & Amey, as they enjoy this time with Phoebe and seek Your face. Give Phoebe fresh understanding as she travels down this path. In Jesus name. Amen.

  58. My heart is breaking upon hearing this news………..I join the thousands of others in continued prayer for our Lord to make this transition bearable for you all. I know that Phoebe’s life has lifted us up and has been a true gift. May God’s arms hold you all tightly together and somehow infuse you with peace and understanding through this terribly sad time. Your family will always be in my prayers. I am so thankful that I had the priviledge of meeting your family at LCBC and will always remember Phoebe when she was a small baby and you would walk with her to the back of the church during services. It has been a privilege and an honor to be part of the “prayer warrior” team & to be a witness to your faithfulness. Thank you.

  59. So sorry to hear this….,May God wrap his big arms around your family right now. We are holding you up in prayer.

  60. I pray for our Lord’s grace and peace to surround your family during the weeks to come. Phoebe is held in the arms of Jesus as are all of you. Yes we hope for that miracle…

  61. No words for me, either. I have been following Phoebe since you began posting. Your family has touched my heart. I know that God is with you during this most difficult moment of your life. I pray that you are comforted knowing that people all over the world are praying for your precioius Phoebe and your family.

    “He reached down from on high and took hold of me; He drew me out of deep waters. (Ps. 18:16) This verse was a comfort to me when as I struggled with cancer.

    Praying for you all….

  62. In Jesus name I pray His blessing and healing be done! But in all things Most High God let your will be done! Amen

  63. Amie, Nathan, and family, our hearts are broken at this news. However, e have been filled with Holy Spirit, we have received His gift of faith (which has grown as we have seen Him do great and mighty things in us, through us, and in the lives of those around us), and we have the power and authority as children of the King. In the Name of Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God, the Healer, the Great Physician, the Lover of our soul, our Lord and Savior, our Brother, and in Whom we live and move and have our being, Phoebe Fair, be healed totally, completely from this cancer. Amen! God is gracious and He is in control.

    We love you all so much!

  64. In Jesus’ name we command the cancer to shrink up and go. It has no place in Pheobe’s body. It is not welcome there, it cannot stay.

    Amy and Nathan – though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death (again), the Lord is with you. His rod and His staff comfort and protect you and your little ones. xxx

  65. Dear lord we plead the blood of the LAMB over this precious child. Please surround Phoebe and her family in your cloak of protection. We ask that YOU perform your miracle. You are the GREAT PHYSICIAN.

  66. I want to encourage you. Our family is going through the same battle. My husband is fighting cancer for the second time now, but the first time he had a miracle and cancer was gone after a prayer. He was fine for 4 years. I know what HOPE means and how it looks. I know that our GOD is stronger than cancer. Keep praying, don’t loose heart, confess healing over your precious daughter. We do the same, we believe His promises more than doctors prognosis. We will pray for your daughter today and stay with you in agreement.

  67. Oh dear God, please,please give us a miracle for Phoebe…no      words…oh dear God, please.  I feel as if my heart will   break  for you,  I love you and will not stop praying. 

    ________________________________

  68. I know I don’t know you guys very well, but I can’t stop thinking about you all since being updated yesterday. I just keep crying, begging God to change the outcome. Please Lord, grant them this miracle…

  69. I am so sorry to hear this horrible news. I will be praying for your family. Im a nurse in the ER and see so many patients, but she is one patient that I remember. She is hard to forget with her outgoing and loving personality. She would tell us that she is “Phoebelicous”. My heart goes out to what your family has been through. I believe in miracles and will be praying. Keep fighting Phoebe!

  70. for all who is praying for Pheobe,

    Do this with me. Change your pray.
    Do not ask God to heal Pheobe, but direct the pray against the cancer that is inside Pheobe.
    We speak to our mountain. Speak to cancer

    in Jesus name, I command you CANCER inside Pheobe to die! And get out of her NOW. In Jesus name. You bow done to the name of Jesus. Pheobe be healed in Jesus name.

    albert

  71. Sweet family……..praying His gentle strength fills you and surrounds you as we continue to pray for his mercy and grace on this entire situation. My heart breaks, but my soul believes in the ever-powerful God of miracles.

  72. Amey and Nathan, I have been following your lives via my cousin Cally Finney’s fb page, and have prayed so often for Phoebe. I know we have never met, but I feel like I have come to know and love your family by all your posts and pictures. Amey, you so genuinely and beautifully write this painful story that has become your lives. Please know there are many people praying and lifting up your family before our Great King Jesus. May He bless you and keep you. May His face shine on you and be gracious to you. May He lift up His countenance to you and give you peace.

  73. His( Jesus) grace is sufficient for you- His strength is perfected in our weakness. We are praying with and for you.

  74. dear family, may Jesus the God/man give you strength in abundance. we are all on the road to happiness with Jesus my son has been ther 3 years now. he gives me many signs he walks with me still. i will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. heaven is not a long distance place. our children hover right by us always. peace be upon you during the time you now have her where you can still see her but trust she will always be right there by you. love to you and your little saint/child/ kelly kujawa

  75. We met you at Lighthouse, and Phoebe touched our hearts with the pure joy in her eyes. My daughter Jane made a connection with her and we love her to pieces! When we saw your post, we were all devastated.. We pray for a miracle from our Heavenly Father.. Jane and her friend Raegan Walked our neighborhood door to door to raise money for your family, and even more to ask for prayers. We are praying for all of you 🙏… Please let us know where to send the money.. Would love if we could hug your necks!!

  76. i know vania and aaron miller and tanya and so I have seen your posts on FB my heart breaks and I have asked people to pray!!

Lord, thank you for this precious little baby she has truly touched my heart. comfort this family Lord, cover them in your sweet peace. I love you madly! In the sweet and holy name of Jesus. Amen!

  78. I believe in miracles. my daughter was born completely blue & not breathing. my father laid hands on her & commanded healing by the spirit. a nurse joined him. my tiny 6lb 2oz miracle took a deep breath & returned to living! they said I should expect brain damage. they were wrong! I believe in divine healing & I believe in miracles. my miracle is an 8 year old honor student today. her only set back is a psychiatric disorder, that is wellmanaged. my thoughts & prayers are with your family. God is so good to us. my prayers for healing will not cease for your family. I’m in Mississippi but if there is anything our family could do like send her a care package, we’d love too. you can contact me at hollyashleygrimes@gmail.com. Try to remember that you are blessed beyond the stress. Our Lord knows what’s he’s doing.

  83. We don’t know each other but one day in Heaven we will!! I don’t think there is really anything that could be said to express how my “Mothers Heart” aches for you. I know The Holy Spirit goes before me to tell God that my heart is breaking for you!!

    We scuba dive and the most important thing is our air supply. If you run out of air, your buddy shares their air with you. I am praying on your behalf( sharing my air) for the times during this deep valley. You have many who will come along side of you with air for when you feel you can’t breathe.
    Praying for healing and peace!!

    I’m so sorry!!

  84. You do not know me but I ran across your web page. There is a little baby named Avery who had the same tumor. Her family is a friend of a friend of mine. Basically God healed little Avery and she is doing well today. Pleas check out her Facebook page, Pray for Avery. I will keep Phoebe in my prayers!

  85. How very sad to hear this. I will keep her in thoughts and prayers. Precious little girl. May God give her parents strength to hang in there during all this. God works wonders if you believe.

  86. Dear Father, Abba God, Sweet Phoebe is yours and we call on the power vested in us through then Holy Spirit that you bless us with her full life here on earth for many years to come, that we may see you turn back as they cling to your garment and see her precious body healed for your glory! In The name of your precious son, our Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen 🙂

  87. IT’S 10;45 PM HERE IN BARTLETT, ILL AND I JUST READ YOUR JULY 26 POST ABOUT PHOEBE.
    MY HEART HURTS FOR PHOEBE AND HER FAMILY – PHOEBE IS SURROUNDED WITH LOVE FROM THE LORD, YOUR FAMILY AND ALL THOSE WHO SHARED THIS JOURNEY WITH YOU
    ARE SO SAD TO READ THE JULY 26 UPDATE.
    I AM PRAYING AND WILL CONTINUE TO PRAY THAT PHOEBE AND HER FAMILY BE COMFORTED AND SURROUNDED WITH LOVE DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME.
    LORD, GIVE US THE FAITH TO TRUST YOU IN THE DARK!!

    WITH LOVE, SUZANNE

  88. God bless you all. My heart hurts! I don’t know you but I’ve been reading your posts. Thea’s sad! A big Brazilian hug.

  89. Oh, I am so sorry. My heart is sick with sadness.

    All I know is: God does all things well; He loves Phoebe more than we do; We will see her soon in glory! Blessed be the name of the Lord.

  90. Your post was difficult to read. Praying for God’s mighty grace for your family. Love, Anita Long (Phil’s mom)

  91. I certainly pray she is cured. You may not be looking for advice but I have read so many things on facebook about cancers that are cured with foods that it could be worth looking at. They are posted on my facebook.

  92. My heart is breaking right now. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to meet your beautiful family and sweet and loving little Phoebe. I am praying for god to wrap you all in his arms and bring you comfort during this time. Phoebe made a little imprint on my heart as I am sure she did with many she met. I am sending your family many prayers and know God is with you all.

  93. My heart and mind are in such a mess right now – I’m thankful God doesn’t need words to know what is in our hearts because I can’t seem to form any right now. I find myself having to recite truths about God right now, because my fleshly body just wants to scream “why?” Our God is a God of miracles, so I’m clinging to that first. I pray that He will grant you the strength to walk through this so very dark valley. Praying for your boys. Praying that Phoebe doesn’t have to continue on with much pain and headaches. And I pray that someday you will understand what a gift you have given to so many by your willingness to share your precious Phoebe and her journey. Thank you.

  94. Words are insufficient to express my desire to bring some sort of comfort to your family and this terrible situation. May the grace of our Lord be with you and your family as you walk through these next days and weeks. Lifting you all in prayer.

  95. Amey and Nathan I am so terribly sorry. This is just terrible news.. I don’t know what to say or think. Sometimes I don’t understand things. Things don’t make sense. Hang on tight to his hem is all I can think to say. I feel terrible for you, this is just too hard and doesn’t seem fair. My heart is very very sad and heavy for you. I will be praying you have the grace to live a day at a time. Just one moment at a time. I am praying for you. Please keep posting when you can. Amey I have never met you but admire your spirit and fight so much. Nathan I am so glad we got to know you. Phoebe has enriched our lives. I am weeping for you guys. Jeuse please do a complete miracle. You guys keep on fighting and praying and loving your girl Phoebe and boys. I admire you so much. I am praying for you.

  96. Dear Amey and Nathan… we’re with you in prayers and tears. We heard the story of your precious Phoebe through Ryan and Allison Riggs. Jesus come close…

  97. I am “just” praying. And tho’ I do not know you all well, I love you very much. “just” praying and loving,
    your friend in Nica,
    Sarah

  98. Thinking back over my years as a nurse, I can honestly say that Phoebe is such a bright light in those memories. I will hold on to memories of countless early morning “Phoebe hours” spending time with my sweet little Phoebe Pheebs. I will forever keep some Hello Kitty stickers with her name on them. She, as well as your family, have touched so many lives. Praying for her, your family, and friends during this difficult time. Sending all our CCBD love & praying for a miracle.

  99. I can´t believe it…No words can describe the sadness this make me feel – kiss her from all of us…kiss her all the time.

    “El Señor es mi pastor, nada me falta,
    Me guía por la senda del bien, haciendo honor a su nombre.
    Aunque pase por quebradas tenebrosas ningún mal temeré,
    Porque tú estás conmigo,
    Tu vara y tu bastón me sostienen”

    Salmo 23

    We pray for you

  100. You don’t know me but I have been following Phoebe’s story. My heart is breaking with yours as I read this last update. Please know that I am praying for you and your beautiful daughter and the rest of your family. May God’s loving arms hold all of you up as you go through this extremely tough time. He is our strength and our comfort. And he is a God of miracles. Ellen Schotanus Cameroon West Africa.

  101. My prayers are with you and your precious child, I love her although I’ve never known her. Praying for a miricle.

  102. I don’t know what to say, so instead I’ll let God’s word speak for me: Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. (Romans 12:12) I’m praying that God’s will is to heal little Phoebe and wait a little longer (many years!) before he calls her home. I’m also praying for the entire Fair family, that the Holy Spirit fills you, comforts you and lifts up your hearts. I refuse to cry right now, rather focus our energies on praying and believing in a miracle! Though I don’t know you personally, I love you all very much!

    As I’m writing this, “I Need A Miracle” by Third Day just started playing on the radio. God bless!

  103. I don’t know you or you family, but as a mother, my heart breaks with yours. I pray that God will reach out with all his might and comfort your Princess. May He heal her with all his might so that she may prevail triumphant against her illness. Phoebe will be in my prayers! Keep your Faith and God bless.

    Strongest prayers given,

    Brook Heath

  104. Dearest Amey and Nathan, Phoebe’s story has brought me to tears. I can honestly say my heart aches for your little angel and I too will keep your family in my prayers. Your precious little girl is like a ray of sunshine, she makes me want to be a better person. Phoebe’s struggles and determination to walk again and be happy have made me realize how much time I waste stressing about petty stuff. Thank you for sharing your story and allowing Phoebe’s light to touch our hearts..

  105. You don’t know me, my wife and I are friends with Jen Giunta who has kept us updated on Phoebe’s condition. We are praying for a miracle. Today on my morning run I felt prompted to share Zephaniah 3:17 with your family: “The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”

  106. I don’t have any words either. I just want you to know I am thinking of sweet Phoebe and her amazing family. I have been following her story since the beginning, but like you and countless others, I’m not ready for it to end.
