I don’t usually post about this kind of thing, but I saw a story this morning about a teenage girl in Utah with terminal cancer who has donated her Make-A-Wish money to her local high school. She’s been receiving treatments in Salt Lake City for months, but her parents have finally brought her home, since there’s little more that can be done for her. Her whole town turned out to welcome her home. The news segment is worth watching:
This is a prime example of the “problem of suffering/evil” that we often talk about, and we naturally wish we could help people in these circumstances. Like most people who read my blog, I don’t believe prayer is effective, so there’s nothing I can do on that score. But her family is saddled with some high medical bills, so for anyone who would like to help out, a fundraising site has been set up for her here.
