04-03-2013 (BMS) - Even before she was diagnosed, Naomi Pitts knew something was wrong – and that it was very bad. She was playing volleyball for her middle school at the time, and she realized she was tiring too quickly.

Naomi's mother, Christine, encouraged her to keep on working hard at volleyball practice, but when the fatigue continued she decided to take her daughter in for an emergency department visit. “Within an hour of seeing her, the ED doctor came out and told us it was cancer,” Christine recalls.

Naomi took the news calmly, but Christine says it took her a week to believe the diagnosis was real. “Finally, though, I said to Naomi, ‘God heals ALL manner of diseases and He will heal you. Do you believe this with me?’ She said that she did, and our journey began!”
