Sadie Robertson, of Duck Dynasty and Dancing With the Stars fame is asking her fans to “storm the gates of heaven.”
Robertson has shared the plight of Katie Joyce on her Instagram account.
According to the Shreveport Times, Joyce was diagnosed with a brain tumor on Aug. 27, 2010, when she was 2.
Joyce underwent brain surgery at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, followed by 33 rounds of radiation at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. She had to learn to walk again, had to receive physical therapy and had to undergo countless tests and procedures before beating that round of cancer.
The family has recently learned Joyce has another brain tumor, but this one is inoperable due to it’s location on the brain stem.
“The doctors say we need a miracle,” Robertson wrote. “The only thing that can fix this is if we storm the gates of heaven,”
Robertson’s prayer request has received 158,000 likes and more than 9,000 comments.
