Faith is an important part of many people's lives, and when family members fall ill, that belief can be essential to getting through a terrible ordeal.
When seven-year-old Ava Lee's cancer came back, her family was supported by a host of neighbors and friends, and they relied on their faith. Ava Lee's prognosis did not look good, but before going in for a PET scan, she had one simple request: that people pray for her and her family.
In a video on Team Brighter Days, the Facebook group that tracks her progress, Ava asked people to pray that her scan would come back clear.
Ava Lee's plea was met with a miracle. Her PET scan, pictured here, came back clean and she was temporarily discharged from the hospital.
Ava still has a lot of fighting to do, with a test coming up to see if she is eligible for a transplant.
Her mom reports that she still has a five to 10 percent chance of survival but that they are going to keep praying and celebrating victories like this one.
