Please Pray for Sarah

Calling ALL prayer warriers!!
My SIL Melissa's cousin Sarah is in need of your prayers. This is copied from Mel's blog this morning: 
She is battling AML Leukemia. There are three different stages within the AML. This morning the doctor informed us that the stage Sarah has is the lowest stage, meaning she has a 50% success rate. The chemo that she is getting, (on day 3 of 7 today) will put her in remission, but the cure is for her to have a bone marrow transplant. Her sister and brother are the best chance and they were tested yesterday, the results will be in on Friday. Pray that Jeremy is a match, it would be a miracle, and we believe in miracles! Heather would be a good match too, but not the best since she has had 3 children and shared antibodies/chromosomes with them. If they are not a match she will be put on a list for a bone marrow transplant. Sarah is strong and believing the promise that God will never give her more than she can handle!

Sarah had leukemia when she was 4 and has been in remission ever since. Apparently (as I understand it), the chemo she received then is what has caused this to surface now. We know she can beat this!! :) Will update as I hear more.
