The community is coming together to help lift up a local child in prayer as she continues to battle cancer.

According to Jackie Crittendon-Bradley, a giant prayer circle to embrace the life of 10-year-old Korie Howard of Knox will be held on Sunday, Feb. 2 at 4 p.m. CT at the Nancy J. Dembowski Community Center in Knox. The effort comes as Howard has been placed in Hospice care after suffering with cancer which has now moved into her lungs. Those attending are hoping the prayer circle brings a miracle to this little girl.

According to those close to Howard, the doctors have given her weeks to months to live. Hospice will be providing her with comfort measures only. The cancer continues to spread and all preventative measures are moot.

You are encouraged to attend the prayer circle on Feb. 2 or you may send a card of hope to Korie Howard, 304 N. Roosevelt Road, Knox, IN 46534. You may also leave a message on the Facebook page “Korie Howard’s Fan Club!!” There you can leave your positive thoughts for Howard and there you can receive updates about her fight.
