Making Miracles Happen Today 03.04.12

Updated 03.04.12

In addition to Flying Furballs, I also publish InkStain'D. This is a little paper that I hope will grow - for the community. Now, as I write this, somebody in the community needs you, and hopefully this paper will help share the message. 

Through InkStain'D and Flying Furballs, by outreaching through Twitter and Facebook, and most recently shared on's FB page, we are reaching out to as many people as I can to help make a miracle come true.

So, what are you doing Today?

I Believe In Miracles
The Schuhmacher Family Miracle
Meri, one of the diabetes bloggers, has asked for our help, and I encourage each and every one of you to take a few moments to read Meri's story, and perhaps send a few good healing vibes her way. Her family depends on it.

To give a bit of background about Meri and her family, and her efforts to support the diabetes community. In Meri's words: 
I am the mother to 4 wonderful boys, 3 of which have Type 1 Diabetes. Through this blog I hope to share our ongoing story, to help others see that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Like you, I have muddled through all the emotional phases diabetes has to offer a parent. I know of the worry that sits with you like an old friend, because he is my friend too. I just try not to make him the life of the party. Take the ride with me. 
But sometimes life just hits us, and it has hit Meri's family. She writes, and is asking for help from us. 
We have received some bad news, and we need your help. Three years ago my husband Ryan was diagnosed with Melanoma. He had surgery and chemotherapy and we believed we beat it. This weekend we received the news that his cancer is back with a vengeance. He has 6 tumors in his brain, as well as multiple tumours in his lungs and abdomen. The news obviously not good... but we have not lost hope. 
We are asking all of you for your continual prayers, and ask if you will join our family in praying this Sunday March 4th, for Ryan. Please pray specifically for a miracle, because that is what we stand in need of at this moment. We spread the word to your churches, prayer groups, friends, and families. All religious denominations everywhere. We have a strong believe that we need to bombard the gates of heaven with prayers for ryan on Sunday... and beyond. 
For those of you that do not know our family very well, you can find out more about us at My husband and I have been married 19 years, we have four boys, ages 16, 14, 10 and 8. Three of our boys have Type 1 Diabetes. Ryan is 40 years old. 
Please. Please pray. We believe in miracles, and have already witnessed many since the diagnosis on Sunday. We can do this. Your prayers can and will help. 
Thank you in advance for your prayers and good will for our family. We already feel it lifting us. 
Much love, Meri Schuhmacher and Family

So, the DOC (Diabetes Online Community) is rallying together today, praying, and sending healing miracles Meri's way.  If Facebook is your thing, go for it and visit the Facebook page to support the Schuhmachers.

And of course, we have amazing bloggers supporting the family. Among them are some I know about:
And I'm sure there are more out there, asking for miracles too.

Let's help the Schuhmacher family see the light at the end of their tunnel. After all, it could happen. It will happen. Miracles happen.

Miracles Happen
Ryan Schuhmacher
