On Tuesday October 11, 2011 Leanne (Chin) was diagnosed with breast cancer. This blog will follow her journey. It will share the peaks and valleys along the way. But it will also serve as a way to communicate prayer requests and praises. Join us as we partner with Chin and fight along side her for she "...can do all things through Christ who strengthens her." Phil. 4:13

The meaning behind Chin ... There is a Chinese restaurant in the Twin Cities named Leann Chin. While Leanne was attending a basketball camp in middle school, a fellow camper had a bag from the restaurant. This camper made the connection between the name of the restaurant and Leanne's name. And the nickname Chin stuck!

wear it!

As promised, here is a way for everyone to help!

Once Leanne was diagnosed, we began brainstorming ways that we could help Leanne, Ryan, and baby Grover. So we got online and ordered some bracelets figuring we could give them out to those wanting to join TEAM CHIN and ask for a donation to give the Miller's some financial support. A few weeks later, all the way from China, we got these! Doesn't my niece look cute modeling the bracelets?!

So here is where you come in. Email me at teamchinny@gmail.com with the following info in your message:
  • Your name & address
  • How many bracelets you would like (Youth sizes also available)
I will connect you with your closest TEAM CHIN retailer :) or just mail them to you. Once you receive your bracelets, we ask that you would send a financial donation of any amount to:

Leanne Miller
17639 George Moran Dr
Eden Prairie, MN  55347

More than any type of financial support, we really covet your partnership in prayer. We specifically ask for prayer for:
  • Peace for Leanne
  • Leanne to find her true beauty in Jesus Christ
  • Continued good health for Leanne
This has been a hard day for Leanne. With lots of tears and the support of her mom and Michelle, at DK International, Leanne shaved her head today. Please keep her in your prayers. Doesn't she look beautiful in her wig!!!!

Oh, Leanne, you are so very beautiful because of the spirit that God put in you. Not having your hair must be a shocking experience, but your beauty still shines through! May I share a story that seems to apply? One of my first graders wanted to write that I was beautiful, and having always been self conscious about some aspects of my looks, I tried to dissuade her. She looked at me and said, 'Then can I write you are beautiful from the inside out?' I convinced her to write People are beautiful from the inside out. However, out of the mouths of babes: she saw me as beautiful because she loved me. Leanne, we see you as beautiful because we love you too!
