Four-year-old Brecklynn Allgood is no stranger to a fight.
At the age of two, she was diagnosed with a rare form of lung cancer called Pleuropulonary Blastoma. That was beginning of not only the biggest fight of Brecklynn’s young life, but a community of prayer and love that would form to support her and her family.
Shortly after her first diagnosis, Brecklynn’s family launched a Facebook page to share her fight and ask for prayers, called “Pray 4 Breck.”
On Wednesday, Brecklynn’s parents returned to the Facebook page to share some heartbreaking news: Their daughter’s cancer had relapses.
“…We did not get the news we wanted to hear today. The cancer is back and it is back in her brain. We are heartbroken and devastated… but we will not back down from this fight. We will fight and we will beat this. Our God is big and always faithful. Our Doctor and team are diligently working on a plan of action.”
Despite the gut wrenching news, Brecklynn’s parent remain optimistic. It was less than two years ago that Breck had cancer everywhere in her body — her arms, legs, even her brain — but last October her doctor’s found “no evidence of the disease” left in her body.
She endured 30 rounds of radiation to beat this cancer the first time, and the community of support around her lifted her in prayer throughout all of it — just like they’re doing now, with the news of Brecklynn’s cancer returning.
Since 2013, thousands have been praying for Brecklynn, and from her Wednesday update requesting for more prayers, the social community has answered by sharing loving wards of hope.
