Test Results....

This evening we received a call from Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. It seems that 6 out of the 10 HLA blood typing/screenings are completed. With this information we are able to conclude that TWO of the four siblings tested are a match to Anna-Renee!!!!! We praise our most wonderful Savior for this answer!! We still are waiting for the last 4 parts to be finished, I don't know if the finer details of these screenings will determine which one will get to be the donor. The dr. just said that with the 6 completed that we know that................Samuel and Daniel are a match!!!! We are thrilled and I weep for joy. We will find out more on our next appointment, with Dr. Irwin in Tacoma, which is on Wednesday. Thank you for your prayers!


  1. I just wanted to say: I saw it first before Gilead!!

    But that is great news to hear about a match

    1. Yes you did!
      In my defense, when this came about I was sick trying to take a nap. I ended up praying instead, lol. ;)
      My mom and I got a big laugh from this!

    2. Haha!!!! you both make me laugh!!!! HOpe you get well Gill.
      In Gods grace,

    3. Laughter worketh like a medicine! :D

  8. Our family has been praying earnestly for you, Anna, and we are so excited to hear the news of the donor match.

    It has been such a blessing to see your smile through the midst of this trial. That kind of real smile in the trial can only happen because of the inner strength that comes from God's grace upon a life surrendered to His perfect will.

    We are excited to see how God will use this time in your life and in the lives of so many who are watching as you stay in love with the God who has found you faithful enough to give you this fire.

    We love you.

  15. Yay! Such great news! When we heard which siblings were being tested, I told Garth that it would be so neat if Daniel was the match...if God had spared his life several years ago in order to spare Anna's life now. Isn't it awesome to watch God work and be part of HIs awesome plan? Continuing in prayer for you all daily. Love you all.

  26. PTL for His goodness! I am a stranger to you and your family but am friends from many years ago with the Rose family. I heard about Anna from Gilead and I have told him I would pray. I and my Sun night prayer partner pray for Anna each week when we pray together. I have a friend who's 1 year old daughter has had leukemia that was found when she was 6 mon old. So now when I pray for Savannah I am reminded to pray for your Anna. I will share this wonderful news tomorrow at prayer meeting and we will continue to pray through this whole process for your family and for Anna. God bless you.

  27. PRAISE THE LORD!!! Rejoicing much with you all. He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that weak or think!

    Love you guys,

  28. God is so very good!!! We are keeping you all and the Dr.'s in our prayers.

    Love & Prayers

  32. Praise God!! I can only imagine what God is hearing up there all day, every day with the love and concern and care from His people here on earth who love this sweet and special girl named Anna. What a privilege to pray, and what an awesome God who cares and hears our every prayer and request. We can truly rest in him. So thankful for the matches, God is so good.
