Hello Jessica and JohnI am Jacin Humphrey's mother and just wanted to let you know that I have followed Noah's journey from beginning. I have prayed for him and lifted him up to our sweet Jesus and precious Lord and Savior and know that his will -- will be done. We always do not understand and are not suppose to but Jesus will always be walking beside us and will lNEVER leave us. I am anxiously awaiting your good news that Noah is and will be just fine. Love Brenda
Thinking of sweet precious Noah and trusting God to keep His loving protective healing hands on him. May the Lord bless Noah and be gracious to him and to you as He give great wisdom and skills to all the medical staff.
Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.

I came across your blog through a mutual friend, Becca Davis. One of your final paragraphs, about not approving of the path God is leading you down, but trusting Him anyway really struck me. I think your outlook is so refreshing and it was something I really needed to hear. I recently had a miscarriage (and I do not at all pretend to know or understand your pain, only that I too, find myself angry at my circumstance at times) and through my anger often find myself turning that anger toward God. You really helped me to put things into perspective, remembering my commitment to Christ, as I have committed to my husband. Thank you for your vulnerability and sharing your story with us. Prayers are being lifted up on your behalf all the way in Hawaii! Peace and blessings, Cristy
I am so sorry for your loss. I cannot even imagine. Thank you for sharing your sweet Noah with us and for being willing to share your journey. You said you felt led to name your son Noah and that he would be a great man of God. I believe that came to pass, your "little man" has touched many lives, mine included and has been such a blessing. Thank you for your witness and showing incredible faith through your darkest hours. God has used you as well as your precious son. I will continue to pray for your strength, comfort and peace that surpasses all understanding and that you feel your Saviors arms holding you. May the Lord bless you both.
I am praying God will surround you with His perfect peace right now in the name of Jesus. Lord, give them strength for each day ahead and help Noah's parents to feel held in your arms. Thank you for the sweet time Noah is having in your presence. Help his mommy to know you love him even more than she does, and you have fulfilled a beautiful purpose in his life. Keep her close to you as she walks out this journey. Help the whole family to be aware of your presence and your love. amen.
Hello Jessica & John,
I don't know you but I have friends who have posted your updates on Facebook, and I wanted to tell you I am praying for your sweet family today - for you to be surrounded by love, and filled with God's peace. Everyone's grief is so different, but I can empathize a little bit - my son Graham passed away two years ago (and today is actually his birthday). I know nothing that any of us say will take away even a little bit of your pain, but please know that you and Noah are loved. God bless you. It doesn't seem like it now, but one day there will be a good day, and eventually the good days will start to outnumber the bad. God's love and peace and comfort be with you all.
My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. May God bless you in the days and months ahead. Eva Pettus
To the Crowe family,
I just wanted to express my sympathy at the homecoming of Noah. I went to church with yall in 2009, but moved just before his diagnoses. I have reade your blogs and have been so touched at your love and strength for Noah.
He is an amazing little man. And your writings.. telling about his journey have touched people that you dont even know. I had asked people in my friend circles, in Ohio, New York, California, Tennessee to pray for him and you both as parents.
I just wanted you to know that you are loved and prayed for. I am so sorry for the pain you are feeling.. I wish I could take it away.
You both a wonderful people. God bless you and hold you close.
Sorry Noah got a burn in a MRI. I am a MRI tech and felt I could shed some light on this matter. The fact that this blanket company voluntarily removed its labeling of MRI safe and MRI compatible is suspicious. Also it stated they really had no way to properly test the blanket because no guidelines existed. I would bet Noah was scanned in a 3T magnet. If I am right the blanket heated up over the course of Noah's scan and my guess Noah was sedated so no motion would be detected on the scan to tip off the tech of something is wrong. This burn can occur on adults as well when scanning if the bare arms are resting against magnet bore. Sponges are used between bore and patient and this burn is avoided. Some obese people can't fit when pads are used this is a dangerous situation that every tech faces daily. Not all facility's have the wide bore scanners. Our obese population is ever growing.
This happened to me in a 3T...I had my arms on my chest and the tech told me they'd get tired so that I should lower them to my sides but that put in with direct contact of my skin on my arms to the bore...I was surprised he didn't cover my arms with blanket or sheet...he just ran out (obviously concerned with the time factor or his schedule than checking on anything else). Afterward they told me since the sides were plastic it shouldn't happen but my arms were touch bore and the sides of the table as well which was not the same. When I yelled out for assistance explaining what was going on, feeling the escalating warmth, heat, burn, pain...the tech never answered me. They had told me they would display concerned for my comfort because they knew I was claustaphobic, I asked the tech if he could here me initially and he said yes, I asked him to speak to me frequently throughout the test to let me know how much time I'd have left for each sequence and entire test. He was the least vocal of any tech before that I had experienced. After another tech told me they can't hear me unless they open the speaker on their end each time...I never experienced that before. Also I was told not to squeeze the ball as it would disrupt and lengthen the test...so I thought calling out and telling him what was happening was enough. Finally he answered me ( I definitely had the feeling he must've left the booth, and abandoned my there) (after one of the longest I think 11 min sequence ended) telling me there is only 2 min left to test and he said it was "normal". I said I never felt this before, etc,. he only said there is 2 min left do I want to proceed, over and over.
Praying - Of Course!! You both are amazing examples what it means to walk in FAITH. Thank you for being a reflection of Christ in our life. I pray that we too, such fragile broken jars, will SHINE in your life and too the WORLD!"Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see." Hebrews 11:1LOVE you guys!
Hey guys, Love ya and been praying for you all.

Hello Crowe family...I found your story this morning on the C.O.L.E. Foundation website. I could not stop reading and praying. I have checked several times this afternoon for an update. I will be praying for Noah and for your family. I know Jesus will hold your hand throughout. I will give God the glory and the praise for healing Noah. Praying for 100% healing.... Lisa in Tennessee
You are in my prayers every day - for healing for little Noah, for strength for you both, and for the wisdom of the doctors.

Praying for Noah to be pain free and to continue in his path of healing. You have a beautiful family! even with the "Weird" cuts, LOL
Good morning -- I was reading something from EWomen devotionals today and this was on there: God’s dream is that you would know how much He loves you and that Jesus is praying for you right now! “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” (Psalms 46:1). He is always there… always praying… always interceding on your behalf. Be encouraged today… you are loved and prayed for! I know that you already know that but I thought it may help out a little today!!God Bless .. teresa

Hey John David, Jessica, and precious Noah. I am so glad that God has provided Noah with a speedy recovery. I have followed this blog everyday since you began this website. I also shared it with my co workers here at the pain center and our founder Dr. Willis said he was honored to pray for Noah's well being and recovery. My church (First Baptist of Tanner) also sent up many prayers for Noah and your family. I am praying that God will show his magnificent power with Noah's pathology report. You both have instilled a strength in me for believing and having more faith in God than i have ever had. Thank you both for sharing Noah's story. God Bless :)
Hello I got Noah's name from a prayer list that comes around at work. I have been praying that this will all be a faint memory for you guys soon and that Noah and is entire family can take this to help someone esle someday. God Bless and have a Merry Christmas!

Yall are such as inspiration to so many people. Still praying for Noahs pathology report to come back clean..no cancer. Satan is not going to take that precious child! He is a miracle.Love you all.
I am in awe of your testimony throughout this ordeal. Your faith is inspiring. While one may never know why God chose your family for this trial, we do know He does nothing in vain.And I pray that whatever His purpose was in this has been accomplished and that He restores Noah's health quickly.God bless you all.
Praying fervently that Noah is healed and that God will give you strength and peace. My family and I have rejoiced at every milestone Noah has overcome. Thank you for allowing us to help you through this time. Isn't that what christian brothers and sisters are for? I know the unknown is the toughest part. I pray you get results sooner rather than later and that Noah gets a good report.In Him,Amy
Your story was on a friend's Facebook page. I just clicked on to find out what was wrong with Noah. Boy, have I been blessed. I can't wait to get home in the evening to see what God's doing in your lives. You guys are such an inspiration. I'm praying that God heals your precious son completely.May you be blessed as you have blessed others.Thanks for sharing.
Still praying for a good report for you. I know God is faithful. We love this blog with daily updates. We have shared your story with the church down here in Orlando that we have been attending. They have added Noah and you both to their church prayer list. May God bless you, strengthen you and give you peace. In Jesus name.
We are praying for God to heal Noah completely and that you all will have comfort, peace, and strength. You have SO many people behind you and supporting you! It is so uplifting to read the blogs and pass on your story to others. I believe that Noah's story has brought hope to many, and he will continue to do so with his healing.
It's amazing how your lives are pouring into others as you go through this trial. We may not understand why this is happening to your baby boy, but it is clear that God has purposed in you to minister to people not only through your daily interactions, but through this blog. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose! We continue to pray for healing and more miracles for Noah! Keep trusting in Jesus.
I'm sending lots of prayers up for Noah and his speedy recovery. I've been following your journey since I received the e-mail request for prayers at the beginning. You and your family & faith are a real inspiration to the rest of us. God Bless you all -Maria
Thanks for sharing your faith and trust in God through all circumstances. You are truly letting God's love and light shine through you to all of us! Praying for little Noah and the two of you!

God has Noah in his hands and God is the God of all healing. Your faith as been such an inspiration to us. We love you all.
Hey guys just wanted to let you know that it was great seeing you on Sunday. Love the hair John David. We are still praying for Noah and all of you. Love you guys!!!
Just read your update about the pathology report...I'm at a loss for words to describe the sadness in my heart that your family still has so far to travel down this road...I'm still trusting and believing God with you for healing and restoration. Everything is to His glory. I had a thought last night as I laid my head down and waited for sleep to come: Since Heath was just some months old I have been speaking that he is going to be a man of God and a Christian musician. Wouldn't it be awesome if our two boys, together, shouted about God's goodness and faithfulness to them ? I would love to see that day!We love you,Dustin, Jeannie & Heath
I started following Noah's story as a result of a prayer request from a fellow church member. I have been drawn to it daily even though it has been difficult at times to read. You see our family had very similar experience in the 90's with my nephew. He was 18 months old when he had his first surgery to remove an ependamoma brain tumor at Children's Hospital. Anyway, I have lifted all of you up in prayer daily. God bless you all. The path is long and hard. Take strength from God's promises and lean on each other.
Still praying for Noah's healing. We know more miracles are to come. Love you guys!!
We continue to pray for Noah and his healing. Thank you, John David and Jessica, for your witness of God's amazing power! We are blessed by your testimony! Praying God's comfort and strength for you all!
We have been following your blog since we found out and are praying for Noah and his complete healing. We will continue to pray for you to have peace, wisdom and strength in the days ahead. God has great plans for Noah! "For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope."Jeremiah 29:11Love,Randy and Jenni Thomas
Hey Guys!Just wanted to let you know that I'm still praying and believing that more God sized miracles are on the way!Patti

I will be praying for Noah and you for the days ahead. My name is Kay and I work at UAB, one block from Children's Hospital. My friend and I are the ones that had prepared the care basket for you and then missed you by a couple of hours. Per your request, I did take the basket to the PICU and leave for the other families in honor of Noah. If you need anything while you are in Birmingham, don't hesitate to contact me. If you contact me via email, I will give you phone numbers. Again, my prayers are with you. God Bless You.
Jessica - where to begin ... when Joyce first told me about Noah I started following your blog . To be totally honest it was really hard for me to understand why all this was happening at first. Everyday since that day I have seen in SO many ways just how God is using your beautiful family & that sweet sweet boy to touch the lives of soooo many. You guys will not know in this life all the ways God is using this to show off. Please know that we are praying for all of you , Meryt prays for Noah every night . God is faithful & he will see you through this unimaginably difficult time. Thank you for being so transparent and teaching us all so much about Praising God through the Storms. One more thought before I go ... I don't know if you even remember this , but when we were in Brazil after one of the house visits , you and I were talking. During this particular visit you were not the one giving your testimony , so you were just sitting there , but you told me how you prayed and prayed that God would use you in some way. And that you kept praying "God use my eyes God ... show him through my eyes" . Afterwards the man prayed to ask Jesus into his heart and he told them that he could see the truth and the love of Christ through your eyes. I remember how blown away we all were ... but it's so true ... and a great reminder now in this difficult time ... that God can use anything , any circumstance , any situation to Glorify himself . And if we pray for something and believe it to be true and trust in his will that God will answer our prayers , just like he did that day .You guys are doing that now everyday ... and with every interview , every picture , when people are looking , they can see the love of Christ in your eyes ... Thank you !
Hey John David, I saw Noah's story on News 19 last night and my heart goes out to you and your family. I know you are a strong man of God and that strength will carry ya'll through this very difficult time. I also know God will continue to bless Noah's health. Just lay him in God's arms and He will take care of everything. I Praise God for what he has already done! I will keep Noah, you and your wife in my prayers. If there is anything at all I can do for ya'll please do not hesitate to call or email me. My cell phone number is 256-423-5483. Love in Christ
It's so hard to know what to say at times like this. I can't even begin to imagine how you all are feeling with all of this going on. You are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. To quote a friend of mine who has been keeping up with Noah "he is truly God's own blessed child" and I know God will take care of him and you, too. Much love from TN!
To: The Weebly FamilyYou were at our Fishefesy in Fayetteville a year or so ago. Gay brought you to our prayers a few weeks ago. Praying for everything that you are mentioning andfor the things that we don't know what to pray for. I alsways find peace in Romans 8:26 that when we don't know God knows. I will pray for you as I know so many. Praying travel mercy and encouraging news for your family today. In Christs love Donna
Praying that God will continue to hold you in his loving arms and give you peace along this journey. Sending love and prayers your way on a daily basis:)
Just wanted to say that ya'll are in my prayers. I thank God as I picture little Noah in the high chair eating pringles and laughing at his dad. I thank God b/c I remembered you had stated that he wasn't laughing like he used to...and you got to see him do that again. I know the road ahead seems really long and hard but God WILL help you get through it! And it just touches my heart that little Noah is a fighter and putting what he has already been through in the past so that just gives up hope that he can do it again and he will....once again...PLEASE anything you need...just let us know...Teresa ShortsleeveCOLE prayer teamwww.colesfoundation.org
Hi guys. You don't know me but I've stumbled across your story through shared friends. I think of you and pray for you often. For what it's worth, I taught my one-year old how to pray the other day. Her first prayer ever was for Noah, a little boy we'll never meet, and for his family, whose strength and wisdom we'll never forget.
Hi John & Jessica-We are continuing to pray for you both and Noah at BMI an Believers World Outreach Church. We admire your obvious faith and trust in God- and yes your whole family is a testimony.Pastor Tommy & Mrs. Rachel were wondering if we may have a picture of Noah and your family to put before our staff and church body. You can email it to me or I can take one off of your blog? Let me know!You inspire me personally with your strength and wisdom! Lupe & I continue to stand with you!
Praying for your strength today and always through this journey. God is Good and always there to carry us.C.O.L.E.S Prayer Team
Blessings to each of you in the name of the Master Healer and Physician! Mary Wagner shared your story with me when we were in India. So, I wanted to stop by and let you know that I have been praying for Noah. I will continue to do so for as long as each of you are battling through this storm.May you find comfort in knowing He knows the plans He has for each of you.Cathy
Hey Jessica, John and Noah,We are praying for you guys every day. What a shining light of true faith in action you two are...what an awesome testimony Noah's is going to have. I am praying for you today Ephesians 1:15 -23"....17-I keep asking the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom ad revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the HOPE to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incompaably great power for us who believe."May you continue to walk in his wisdom and hope. Paige
Jessica and family,I e-mailed you last week but wanted you to know we are still praying hard for you guys. Hope Noah is continuing to heal quickly and that you guys are resting well at home. May God give you His strength and peace as you care for Noah. He has big plans for Noah and your family. God bless you guys!Amanda Hobbs (Johanna's sister)
Praying through the tears. Thanks for your transparency and for sharing your story. May He be your all and all! God bless you!
Hey John and Jessica,We are still praying for you guys and little Noah. Thanks for keeping us up to date. Take care of yourselves and each other as you take care of him. Let us know if there is anything else we can do for you. I am praying for a wonderful Christmas for you - hope you can rest in Him.Love ya, Doug and Julia
Dear John, Jessica & family,I learned of your story through C.O.L.E.S. prayer team. I have been pouring over your website. Words cannot describe how awesome it is that God is a central point in your life. Too many times, God is blamed. But I believe God has a perfect will for each & everyone of us. I don't know you, I live in Illinois. But reading of your strength & dependence on God is awe inspiring. Through your own pain, you don't miss an opportunity to witness to people of the power of God. I am so sorry that you're going through this in your life & will keep your family in my thoughts & prayers. It's not for us to know what He has in store but that precious baby boy is part of God's plan, whatever the outcome.God BlessCIndy MillerWashington, IL
Jessica & John David, Today's news is not what we expected to hear, but WE WON"T STOP storming the gates of heaven for your family. May God bless you and give you the courage and strength to perservere, Shelly & Randy Miller
John David and Jessica, I hope you are able to keep all of your writings for Noah....one day , when he is a teenager.....this will be something that will touch his heart---how many people cared for his outcome and how he was doing...etc....You should keep a diary for him.....Love to you all,Merry Christmas,Cheryle
I am sorry and all of my prayers are with you! Hope all ends on a good note.!
I am sorry and all of my prayers are with you. Hope all ends on a good note. Merry Christmas and Happy 2010!
John David, Jess, Noah,Our family has been following your story very closely. Thank you so much for being so open and honest throughout this entire ordeal. I truly believe your faith (all of our faith together) will move this "mountain". We love you guys and continue to keep you in our prayers.Jen, Chris, Matthew & Kyra Nuss
Dear Jessica, I went to school with Brad and Sonya, I have followed Noah's story from the beginning, I am praying everyday, you have shown me what faith in God really means. I have some wonderful memories of your father I will share in and e-mail, he was the most wonderful person I have ever known. My heart and prayers are with you and your family. Debby
I have been praying for little Noah from day one when I saw you had taken him to the hospital. John don't forget you still have your old church North Wood Methodist praying for Noah and the whole family. God Bless You All.
Our prayers and thoughts are with you three! Noah is truely a little miracle! We will continue to keep you in our prayers! AJ, Nancy, Connor and Skylar Foster
We, our whole family, have been on our knees lifting all of you up. We will continue to do so. God is in the miracle business. We have two miracles in our own family. Over 10 years ago they gave Les 3 months to 18 months. Then they told us there are 5% who live five years. Laci Grace is truly a gift from God. Only He could have sent her to us. I believe in the miracles only God can bless us with. I have been humbled by His grace. We are praying for a miracle healing for Noah. God bless the t hree of you as well as the rest of your family.Love Sandy Parish
John, Jessica, and Noah, Like everyone I'm still praying. Our whole family is. Britney has especially been doing so. Hardly a nightly prayer goes by that she doesn't pray for Noah. Thanks for your thoughts tonight. You are so right. Jesus can understand and empathize with all of us. I don't know why, but He does. I think of the blind man in John 9. The disciples said, "Who sinned, this man or his parents that he was born blind?" Jesus' answer was, "Not this man nor his parents, but he was born blind so that the Father could be glorified. That has already happened through you and Jessica.I also want to thank Noah for his faith. Through all of this, he is most concerned with laughing and eating ice cream. I wished I had that kind of faith that through the bad times, I'd just be able to laugh and want more ice cream. Two passages come to mind, "Except you become like little children...." and "Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings, you have ordained strength. Thanks Noah, we are praying for you little buddy!!
Noah of the Bible was a righteous man. He found favor in God’s eyes. He was given a difficult assignment, but he weathered the storm – difficult as it was. It was a year later when the storm subsided and Noah and his family stepped on firm ground once again. They built an altar and worshipped God! God has given your Noah, a righteous little guy, a big assignment too. The storm he is going through is also difficult and could last weeks, months or a year, but God is the same today as He was in “old” Noah’s day. His perfect plan is being revealved each day. I pray that He will sustain you as you weather the storm ahead, worshipping the Lord as you go. Thank you for sharing your faith journey with us and I pray that God will use this storm in your lives to draw people to Himself. Praying and watching for Noah’s rainbow!Love,Mary
Just read your latest blog. Thanks for your honesty and transparency. You, Jessica and little Noah are constantly on my mind and heart. We'll just have to keep praying and trusting won't we. I know there are hundreds wanting to do something for ya'll so just add me to the list.
John,Jess and Noah,There are no words to say to you what your faith and strength has ment to the countless of people through your storms. I pray every day for your strengh and peace. I pray for the laughter that your little guy has to sooth your hearts. I love Mary Wagners statement about the old Noah and cant wait to see the rainbow at the end of the storm ! Our prayers will always be with all of you for the healing of your little angel. Big love to all of you:)Julie Shelton
Hello. You don't know me, but your family has been on our prayer chain at work for a while now, so I've been reading the blog and following Noah's story. I also forward the stories to friends. I just wanted to say that there are many, many people out here praying for you and your family. I hope Noah has a successful surgery - or should I say surgeries - and that he heals quickly. Have a wonderful Christmas.
We are standing with you guys in complete healing over Noah. It would be great to find out what causes brain tumors....a question that we ask ourselves everyday! The words brain tumor and cancer are the nastiest words on earth! Continue your faith in God and HE will carry you through every step that you will take!
Jess, John David, and Noah,We are praying for you every day. At night, when we say our prayers Aidan always tells me not to forget the little boy who is sick. we love you guys and are vigilant for you.
God is so good, and His timing is perfect!Hey John David, Jessica, and Noah!You have just been assigned to me as my "adopted family" from COLES Foundation!! YAY! If there is anything that you need, please feel free to let me know. I am friends with John David on Facebook, so you can contact me through there, and I can also give you other contact info if you need it. Of course, I have been praying for all of you all along, and I will continue to do that. My prayer today is for a restful night tonight in preparation for tomorrows surgery. I pray that the doctors and nurses and anyone else who comes into Noah's path will do everything they can to make him comfortable and KEEP HIM SAFE! COLE Prayer teamwww.colesfoundation.com
Thinking of you and constantly praying. Thank you for taking the time to write your blog. Your words not only help you express what you're feeling but help put things into prespective for me that life may throw my way. We love you!
J.D. ,I am prayinn for your family,and especially Noah. Jess said it besst "God has our son in his hands",she is exactly right. God has this under control,but that doesn't make it easy on yall. I am so sorry that yall are havin to go through this,I love you dawg!!!
I follow your blog and pray continually for your baby boy. Today I also laughted when I was reading! sounds odd, yes. I thought I had the only toddler who LOVES Michael Jackson! We were really surprised when he asked for the CD and it is playing in a loop at our house! I pictured little Noah doing the whoo hoo like my little Colt. Sounds like they would be great friends ..HAHA. I don't know about you Jess, but I am loving reliving the 80's!PRAYERS PRAYERS PRAYERS for your little "moon walker" :-)
A fellow teacher led me to your blog and I just wanted to let you know that here in Arkansas the Ozark Mtn School District is praying for you. Ever since I visited your blog and heard about Noah, I have been praying and will continue to do so. As a new mom, your family is an inspiration and you continue to remind me to always rely on God. Thanks for the updates and we will continue to lift your son up!!!
I wanted to let you know that you and your family are CONSTANTLY on my mind. I have been teaching Miller to pray, by praying for your sweet baby. I bought a Praying for Noah bracelet today at MOPS and I don't plan to take it off until Noah is in the clear. We love you and want you to know that you have been such an encouragement. You are Not alone. We (your brothers and sisters in Christ) are in this together.
Just wanted you to know that prayers are being sent for Noah and your family from our family in Costa Rica.
Jess - I read your blog this morning and hummed as I read through the hymn that you wrote down...and was thinking to myself, that I was going to send you a message about the beauty and promise of " He Lives" . This afternoon I read your comments about " He Lives" and I wept along with you as I read the words...you and John David have so many crystal clear pools of shared tears from all of us that cry for and that care so much for you both and sweet Noah. I pray that a stregnth comes over you both that is indescribable except for saying, ' HE is with me" as you face the trials of tomorrow. Please kiss Noah in that speical spot for me.....
Just a quick hello to say I am still faithfully following your situation and am praying for you guys. John, I guess you remember me from TBI...I know, it's been forever...but you guys have blessed me tremendously and you are on my heart a lot! So, be encouraged!
I AM THE GRANDMOTHER OF KENSLEY KELLY THAT HAS JUST COME HOME FROM UAB CHILDRENS RECENTLY...JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WE ARE THINKING OF YOU AND PRAYING FOR LITTLE NOAH..MY NEPHEW, CHRIS, HAD THE SAME TUMOR AND HAD SURGERY AT CHILDRENS TWO YEARS AGO..HE IS DOING JUST FINE NOW AND I AM SURE THAT NOAH WILL TOO.KENSLEY HAD A FACEBOOK PAGE THAT WE UPDATED ALMOST DAILY, BY THE TIME SHE WAS OUT OF THE HOSPITAL AFTER 7 WEEKS, SHE HAD OVER 10,000 MEMBERS... THAT SURE HELPED US TO KNOW THAT THERE ARE SOOO MANY PEOPLE THAT STILL REALLY CARE FOR YOU....HANG IN THERE, WE ARE HERE TO HELP....
I just wanted to let you all know that I have been thinking about your struggle quite a bit lately. Your story is a real testament to the strength of a loving family (both immediate, extended and that which you have in your friends). My thoughts are with you, as is my compassion and all of my most fond wishes. I have a lot of hope for your little guy :-) Take care.
You and Jessica have inspired and blessed me. The night I read that the doctor had to go through good brain to get to the tumor I just bawled. It upset my 8 yr old grandson Asher so when he came over to hug me we decided to all pray for Noah. Your story has touched us all and helped us come together in faith as a family. I am inspired by your strength and faith. Remember that Jesus said that faith as small as a mustard seed can move mountains. It can also remove the mountain of a cancerous tumor. I have seen enough miracles in my own life to believe in the moving of mountains. May God bless Noah, John David, Jessica and Sonya and give you all courage and strength for the trials ahead.
You are all in my thoughts and my prayers. Even though Noah's situation is overwhelming, it is also a situation of great opportunity. You have been able to reach so many in a short amount of time. Your strength and faith are such an example to all of us who check your blog. No doubt there are many who will accept Christ through your testamony. If you need anything at all, please do not hesitate to call on me.
Prayers from Mississippi. Following your Blog and it blesses me to see your Faith. God will Bless you in return.Praying for Noah and Family!
Hello Crowe Family - We love you all so much and want you to know that we are praying for you. Please let us know if we can do any thing for you while you are away. We will be glad to get your mail again and feed the kitty. I know that God is faithful and have been through chemo myself. I also know that it cannot compare to having your child go through it. We are covering you and your family. God bless and keep you all. I know that He will!!! With Love and prayers - Richard, Denell, Blake and Cody Psalm 118:17
I love "Because He Lives!!"...another one that came out around that time was by 'Truth'..."Get thee back behind me Satan, you shall not prevail, because Jesus Never Fails!!" So in these next months that take you in to places you never imagined, know that God has you wrapped in mercy and grace!! Your words of faith and expression of His grace on you all is such an awesome testimony! Know that there are angels amongst you and prayers are being sent daily...my 11 year old daughter asks me each morning, "How is Noah?" Her tender prayers are with you as well!The Hall familyToney, AL
I am a friend of Keith and Ellen Davis and have prayed for Noah since the beginning and also for you. Thank you for your great example of following Jesus in all situations. It cannot be easy. My husband and I attended Friendship the Sunday Keith played drums. It was a great service and Jesus was very evident in Worship. My prayers continue daily for all of you.
Been awake for several hours now and have been praying for the three of you. Just wanted you to know.
John David and Jessica & Noah,our prayers have been with you from the start and continue with you daily.----------------------------------------------------------------------------When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,When sorrows like sea billows roll;Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,It is well, it is well, with my soul.Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,Let this blest assurance control,That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,And hath shed His own blood for my soul.My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!My sin, not in part but the whole,Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:If Jordan above me shall roll,No pang shall be mine, for in death as in lifeThou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.It is well, it is well, with my soul.
Hey guys! You know we are all ALWAYS praying for Noah and both of you! As I've told you before Rachel is his little personal prayer warrior!! The bracelets are a hit!! They are the new "Athens fad." We just want you to know that not only is Noah bringing people to Christ, but the both of you are as well. You are both a wonderful examples of how great God's love is!!! We love you guys!Nathan, Brittany, Rachel and Blaire
Jessica & John,I love reading your "daily journal" as Jessica put it this morning. You are so encouraging to me and I don't even have anything going on in my life compared to you guys. You are such an inspiration and so encouraging in your steady faith. You have been tested during this trying time in your lives but you have never strayed. That is amazing. Noah is so blessed to have you guys as parents! I think about you all so much and check your blog daily. I love reading your always honest thoughts. I really love reading all the positive progress Noah has made and pray that he will continue to make positive progress every day. Constantly thinking about you guys and hoping and praying for the very best!
Our prayers will not stop for you. If you have any questions or need anything, we are here for you. You are in a very special place at Children's. Stay strong, Christ does not make mistakes.Praying for Noah,Jimhttp://www.caringbridge.org/visit/jameshowell
Praying for Noah this morning!!!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
I just wanted to say all praise & glory to God for Noah & how well he is doing since his surgery. Also praise God because I know that Noah is completely healed by His blood. We don't know each other but Noah's story has really touched my heart & I have praying for Noah & the two of you for healing & strength. One of my favorite songs that always helps me when I am going through a hard time is "Praise You In The Storm" by Casting Crowns. I am sure you have heard it but it has really helped keep me focused on God no matter what I am going through & reminds me that He is always with me. Glory to God in all things!!!!!!! I will continue to keep you guys in my thoughts & prayers & continuing praising Him who is our healer, counselor, strength, comforter,.......God. He is able!!!!!!!Love, your sister in Christ,Beth
A hug and prayer for you , your son, your husband and family. Courage, Strength and Wisdom to the doctors and nurses taking care of your precious child. May you all have the Best Christmas together ever!!! God is Good!!!!!
Just wanted to let you know we are lifting Noah and your family up in prayer today and everday! Stay strong in the Lord.
Just wanted you to know that we're thinking of you daily, especially today with the surgery(ies) and praying it all goes as planned. Love you all!
Dear John David and Jessica,Every time I read your blog, I struggle for words of comfort and encouragement and never seem to find them. I'm sure there are hundreds of others you haven't heard from that feel the same way. I, we, continue to pray for Noah's healing, and your comfort, joy, and peace.
I have been praying for you, our ladies Wednesday night bible study at Old Brashiers Chapel in Arab have been praying for Noah and you. I am so glad to see that you lean on God, situations like this can turn people away from God, your strength is a good model for Christian Faith. God Bless you.
Our prayers are with u,We now fist hand about cancer.oure thoughts and prayers are with you from day one.WE Love you and ceap the faith for our Father in heven has controll of all,God Bless you two,and give a hug from us to Noah please.we Love you Bob & Irene Lee
Just wanted you to know that we are praying for Noah everyday. We talk about him with Aubree, our daughter who is 5. Aubree knows who you both are from church and asks about Noah just about everyday. She came home from school today and told me that during naptime she tried to be very quiet so her teacher couldn't hear her while she prayed for Noah (apparently she prayed out loud) . What I thought was pretty amazing was that her naptime was approximately the same time Noah was going in for surgery. Neither David or I told her anything about Noah's procedures today. I have no doubt that it was GOD that put it in her heart to pray for Noah at that specific time today. Just wanted you to know...you are an inspiration to all who know you and many who don't. Thank you for keeping us updated on your sweet baby. We love you!!
I just wanted to let you know that I have been following y'alls journey everyday. My family and I are praying for you everyday. We worship a mighty, amazing God. I am in awe of your faith and your grace. I also wanted to share a song that was written for a little girl named Kate McRae who is going through something similar. It's called "Little Light," and it's amazing. Here is a link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92JevgM8RBwAnd here are the lyrics. I hope they minister to you guys.Look at all the angels watching youThey’re singing songs that we have never heardTheir voices ring like bells over the mountainsOh, if only we could hear their wordsGod is near, little girl.Your eyes are brilliant,deep sky blue.Your quiet wisdom is an evening song.The angels must be breathless at your beautyLike the world catches its breath before the dawn.God is near, little one.And Jesus bends to hear you breathe;His tender hands are holding you tonight.His heart is ravished when you look at Him,and oh, the endless mercy in His eyes;God is here, little light.
Jessica, John David, and Noah,You may remember me, John David, as the one from Springhill, Louisiana, who grew up with a father who followed John David Crow's football career. Richard and I want all of you to know that we pray for you daily. It's amazing when you think of your story about how Noah got his name--and how God told you that Noah would be a godly person and an amazing influence on many people. How true is God's word? Noah's life has already touched, encouraged, and influenced many. For one who struggles with her faith from time to time, the magnitude of yours has greatly reconnected me to my own--reminding me daily that God loves me the same way I love my own children. May God continue to bless you all.
Hey you guys! I am so glad to hear that Noah didn't have to have a skin graft! Praise God for the small miracles too! :) I am so sorry about your cat! I am glad that the vet found out though, especially since Noah did not need to be around the cat. Still praying every day for you all!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
So grateful that Noah came through without a graft! Sorry about the kitty....I didn't even know FIV existed so I've learned something! You all remain in my prayers and thoughts. Praying Psalm 4:8 for you today!Leslie
I know you don't know me but I have followed Noah's Story and I pray just about everyday for all of you. I am a mom and couldn't imagine having the strength you both have had through this all. My youngest just had gall bladder surgery and your strength has made his surgery seem so little.. May God keep shining his strength through you all and keep inspiring millions of people everyday... Lots of Love.
I eagerly check this site everyday to see how Noah is doing...I have a 19-month-old son named Jack and can't fathom what you're going through but it makes my prayers for you that much more fervent! God bless you and I feel much love for your little one and your family.
My name is Heather Tucker and I live in Decatur. I heard about Noah's student through a fellow teacher at Austin and I have been following your story. Please know without a doubt that God is using this whole situation to speak to others. It really makes us all consider our priorities more carefully. I know you wish you weren't the ones that He wanted to use to teach so many of us. I wish you weren't going through this as well. Although I don't understand why, I know that God must think you're pretty amazing to choose you to be his vessels in this way. He says that all things work together for good for those that love Him and are called according to His purpose. He never said that everthing that happened would BE good, but that it work together FOR good. He has big plans, and I believe He has awesome plans for Noah. I can't wait to hear your awesome testimonies one day about how God healed Noah and is using Him in mighty ways. I am praying for you daily and I hope that your journey will be one filled with lots of miracles and amazing God stories. In His Love, Heather Tucker
Okay, in the previous post, I meant to say Noah's story, not student. Sorry!!
Hey Sweetie,Just wanted to let you know you are in my thoughts and prayers every day. I was at work, making Christmas goodies and began singing that stupid "Christmas, Christmas, Christmas" song that I made up while we were working on the square. I immediately thought of all the fun times we''ve had in various kitchens. I told April I needed to call you and sing to you. I didn't because I know how crazy things are, but just smile and sing "Christmas, Christmas, Christmas, Christmas, Christmas, Christmas..." and know that I love you and am keeping you and your family in my heart.
Praise God no skin graft!!! I sent you guys an Email last week and I have been specifically praying that Noah would have to go through more pain associated with the burn. I prayed that his skin would grow back on its own!!! I am sorry to hear about your kitty Jones.They enemy is trying hard, but we are victorious, more than conquerers!! I pray that the Lord shows you his goodness every day! Travis and Anne' campbell
sorry, i made a typo on my comment above...I prayed that he would not have any more pain...no grafts only new skin growing..A Miracle!!!
May God give you strength to make all the difficult decisions that are upon you, and may he give you peace that passeth all understanding. You encourage me with your faith! God bless you all! Love & hugs, Vicki
I have been following your blog from the begining. I just wanted you to know I have been praying for your whole family. It just breaks my heart that a sweet child has to go through something like this. May the Lord Bless you all!
What a testimony the two of you are!! As I read your story, your love, hope , and trust in the Lord is so evident . Your heart is in every word you speak to us through this blog. Your little Noah has a wonderful gift in you, Your strenght is amazing. But then again your source of strenght is absolutely yours and my Amazing Grace!!! Love and prayers from Hawaii.
So great to hear about the burn and the skin graft not needed! God's power to heal sure is awesome! And I'm sure He isn't done in the healing business when it comes to Noah, either. Love you!
Just wanted to let you guys know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Wow! What a blessing to have had you lead the worship today John David. What a kick in the rear to ole Satan. You were up there praising God through this trial, while Satan thought he probably would have had you staying home by now, wrapped up in pity. He hates it! Hang tight and stay on track. You got plenty of backup! We love ya!
Dear John, Jessica, and especially Noah, We are friends of Jack and Kerry Haire in Livingston, Texas. The way you have the site set up has become such a personal affect to Kim and me. There is not a day that goes by that I'm not getting home from work only to get right to the computer to see how Noah is doing. We pray for him and you two frequently. Please know you have so many brothers and sisters in Christ praying for precious Noah. When watching the film with Noah sliding I'd go back and forth between tears and laughter. He's got more energy than I do on a good day. Our prayers and thoughts are continuously with you. In Christ's Love, Jim and Kim
I've been a little behind on reading the updates but just got caught up. Our son, Xavian, was diagnosed Feb 09 at 10 weeks old with PNET. Dr Reddy is also our neuro oncologist. Xavian finished his 6 scheduled rounds of chemo last month. Please, know that I am lifting Noah up to the one true Healer. Please contact me if I can help with anything. We live in Trussville. God Bless you all!
Hi guys!Just wanted to let you know that we are still praying for you all.

John David and Jessica,It was great to have John David back yesterday leading our praise and worship band and sporting his "Noah-hawk". I check this website several times a day just to see what's going on with the little man! God has been amazing throughout this entire ordeal. You all have an amazing story to tell!! Your in our thoughts and prayers each and every day! The Lawsons
Hey! So glad to hear that things are almost back to normal. I am still praying each and every day for sweet little Noah! Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you guys!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
Hi guys,you don't know me but I have been following your blog and have become a member of Friendship recently. I am new to God and his word and wanted to say thank you for inspiring me. I will continue to pray for you all. I had brain surgery in 2001 and remember how hard it was to get through. If you guys need anything at all please know that I am willing to do anything that is needed. Thank,Cathy Hammond
Pictures look good. Noah's eye is looking straight again!!! Praise God. The burn repair looks excellent. Pat Brewer
John David and JessicaI just wanted to let the two of you know that I check on Noah on a daily basis thru your blogs. The two of youbeing so strong in God's faith has really helped me improve my faith. I am praying for all of you and I know God is using you as witnesses because I feel it. Praise God for all the improvements!
Just wanted you to know your family has been and will be in our prayers at home and at Northwood impact 101 Sunday school family.
John David, and Jessica, Just wanted to thank you for the blog entries, and for the Faith you have shown through all of your recent trials. The Maclin family is on our knees, praying for you daily, and knowing God is doing a magnificent work through you. We love you all and are so grateful you are a part of our lives. Please know we are ready and willing to do anything you want or need us to do!
John and Jessica, I just wanted to let you know that my family has been praying for your son since I received the request from a friend Lisa who lives in your area, her husband is a pharmist there. I know a little of the helplessness you feel, my son has nuerological damage from childhood vaccines. I know the anger you felt when your son was harmed while in the care of professionals, I thought vaccines were needed to protect my son, now I live with the damage everyday. But through all the doubts, fears, tears, what if's, wondering, and asking why, I came to realize, no matter what God is there. God is a healer, a deliverer, a conforter, a sustainer, a peace maker. I do not know what the futuer holds for your son but I know who holds the future. I hold my little boy's hand and we pray together for your son. My son is just now at the age of 7 learning to talk. Dr said "love him until you have to institutionalize him" "he can't be fixed" he is now on the road to recovery, all becuase God answers prayers. Therapies, GFCF diet, natural herbs, and vitamans, minerals, these things God lead me to are recovering my son. I have clung to the words of a son that the Crabb Family sings through "the past 6 yrs. "He never promised that the cross would not get heavy, and the hills would not be hard to climb, he never offered victory with out fighting , but he said help would always come in time. Please watch this video of Jason Crabb singing Thru the Fire.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igNtnMkrAPgPlease know that we are praying for your son, he is so precious,.In Christ LoveCheryl
Jessica & John David,I am Nikki Colwell's mom as well as Kaylee and Taylor's nana. I just wanted to let you know that I am praying for all of you daily. I truly believe that all three of you are an inspiration. Already God has worked miracles in Noah's life and I have no doubt those miracles will continue. That is not to say that this journey will not be filled with many challenges for your family but I know that along Jesus will be with you and with Noah through this difficult path. with love in Christ,Karen Weston
Crowe Family, I know you go to Bham tomorrow, so I will be praying for safe travels and that ALL GOES WELL while you are there. I pray that Noah's arm is healing just as it should be!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
Our family is praying for Noah!!
We are praying for Noah and your family!
You have no idea who I am, but I guess I couldnt help but be nosy when I saw you at therapy on Tuesday. I overheard you tell Robin the name of your website, so here I am. I just want to tell you that children are amazing individuals. They can overcome things that no adult could ever get through. My dtr was diagnosed with brain damage at 3 months old and I was told she would be blind, deaf, and never be able to do anything. Her MRI's to this day continue to tell that same story. But, by the power of prayer,faith, and knowing that God would heal my baby, she is now walking, trying to run, and is nothing that they said she would be. I pray for Noah, knowing that all will go well and that God will take care of him. Once again, children are amazing people and can rewire their little brains to be able to do anything they want to do. I will be praying without ceasing for your baby.
Hi--I'm Tim Stout's birth mother and pastor of the Peterboro and Perryville UMCs. You have been on our prayer list from the beginning of your journey. I'm glad to hear that things are going well. We will continue to pray until we hear that Noah is cured. God bless your whole family. Martie
SO glad to read more positive progress! Great news that the burn site it healing well and Noah is cleared to begin treatments. Also, so glad that he will get to spend Christmas at home before treatments begin. :O) Let's get this show on the road and get Noah well on the road to Recovery then Remission! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! Always thinking and praying for you all.
Checking the site has become part of our daily routine. Thank you for keeping everyone posted. Although we have never met, I check on Noah every morning when I turn on the computer! We pray hard for you every day. Lots of love & prayers!
Hello! I am glad to hear the good news about Noah's burn. I will be praying that the chemo works to do it's job but that Noah tolerates it well. I am glad to see that you all will get to enjoy Christmas at home! Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you! Lots of love to all of you!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
Little Noah, I am encouraged by your strength of will! You have many prayers being lifted up in your behalf. I think of many bible verses at a time like this such as ...Mark 10:14 Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of God.andMt 18:14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish. May God bless you with an easy time!Kathi Reedco-worker of Aunt Kerry
Leaving you a hello and letting you know that you are in my prayers daily. I am praying for Noah's body to be cancer free and that he will withstand the side effects of the treatment. Praying for the Doctors to receive wisdom in treating Noah.Blessing to your familyPsalm 55:22Cast your cares on the Lord and will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.C.O.L.E.S Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
I just watch the video "Gospel according to Noah" IT WAS AN AWESOME BLESSING. That short video said so much. First about being a parent and leading our kids done the path but more importantly about the Father to all of us, Our Father God and how even as parents ourselves we are still children of God and must allow him to lead and trust that he will direct our path. I praise God that I was blessed to find out about Noah. It is my great pleasure to be able to be a pray warrior for Noah and your family.
We are continuing to pray for you all including your extended family. We are so sad that you are faced with this illness. God is everpresent and we faithfully look to Him and not onto our own understanding for the answers. God has a plan for Noah's life, and we thank Him for this child. All our love...you brother and sister in Christ Jesus.
I have followed Noah's story from the beginning. I pray for his healing daily. Your precious child is touching others for Jesus. I read your blog daily. It touches my heart.
Thanks for keeping us updated. I check this every morning - people who know me know I don't get on the computer so this is extraordinarily special! Randy & I are keeping you in our prayers. We are excited to be coming up to Birmingham today and are planning to be in Athens for church Sunday. We are looking forward to seeing you and all our extended family.
Dear Jessica and John,I do not know either of you but was forwarded your blog by a coworker. I have been following Noah's story and praying for you all ever since. You said in your Wednesday post that you pray Noah will point many to the “one true source of hope” and bring encouragement and hope to those searching for it. I wanted to let you know he pointed me. Thank you for sharing your little Noah with all of us. He is beautiful. I hope you all have a wonderful, magic filled Christmas.
Thank you for keeping everyone posted. Although we have never met, I check on Noah every morning when I turn on the computer. We pray hard for you every day. I know that this is very hard ;I had a brian tumor Oct ,2008 the cancer was gbm. the mri's have all come back no cancer seen.Praise GOD. There are alot of folks at Old Brashiers Chapel that have you in their prayers
John David & Jessica,We have been following Noah's story from the beginning. Your journey has been difficult and will continue to be so; but God is using your situation to teach us and so many others of his faithfulness. We check your blog daily before our prayer time together to see how best to pray for you. Please know that we lift all of you up daily and are praying for God's very best for Noah. We hope you have a very blessed Christmas and we will continue to bring you before the throne!
John and Jess, Our family is and has been praying for you. After reading your last post about the upcoming chemo and prayers for "not so usual" effect from it, I remembered a friend of mine who had several treatments of chemo and she was also using homeopathic remedies from a local specialist in Florence. She was hardly sick and she didn't lose any of her hair. The doctors couldn't figure it out. Don't know if you can use this information but wanted to pass it along anyway. God bless.
Just wanted to tell you that I pray for your family daily. I know that the Lord will continue to strengthen you both as you take care of your little boy. I am really sorry about your cat,too. The name I have for my e-mail address is because I had a cat we named beer because he staggered so much when he was a kitten that my sons said he acted like he had drank beer. He died several years ago from feline leukemia and I just can't bring myself to change the name. Hope your family has a blessed day today,
Just wanted to wish your family a relaxed,wonderful Merry Christmas! God IS good,and watching over you and Noah!
Hey John and Jessica and Noah,I have been following and praying for you guys for this past month after several folks sent out pray requests from Friendship. I forwarded them around the world, so I have no idea how many more are praying.I love you, and miss you and am encouraged by how hard you are fighting to keep the faith. God bless you and keep you and know that you are an encouragement as you keep you hearts and minds focused on him.Merry Christmas,Jolean
My name is Breanna and I am 14 years old and I just wanted you to know that we have Noah on our prayer list at my church. The first time I read Noah's story at school, I cried. Why you ask... Noah is just to little to go through that type of stuff. Then, my gma read it and she cried. Noah seems like a sweet little angel! You know that whole tumor happened for a reason because he is a child of God.. and he controlls how sick we are or how healthy. Anyways, Noah I hope you get better buddy. I just hope you get better.
Just want to start out by saying how sorry I am that Noah has been through all of this pain. I am praying for a full recovery or at least God's intention of a full recoveryMy brother was only eight years old when he was diagnosed with a tumor in the stem of his brain. Surgery was not an option but with chemo and radiation, the tumor went away. He is now thirty-three years old and even though he has permanent damage to his whole left side, he is still here. The tumoe has never came back. What a wonderful God we have.Your family will forever be in my prayers.
Dear John and Jessica:Deborah Taylor, our sister in Christ, told us about your son, Noah and we were deeply touched as we read his story. We have 4 sons and we know the helpless feeling of wanting to do something when one of them are ill. We can only imagine how difficult this is for you, your family, and church family. And, since praying is doing something, we want you to know that we're praying for you all. "O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me." -Psalm 30:2We're crying out to God and praying for a miracle! We're praying and believing that God will heal Noah from the top of his sweet head to the soles of his feet. The name "Noah" is a Hebrew name and it means "rest; comfort". We're praying that God will use his life/story to bring healing, restoration, rest, comfort, and new life to many. Genesis 18:14 raises this critical question: "Is anything too hard for the LORD?" and Jesus answers it in Mark 10:27 "But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.” Yes, Father God is able and willing to do the seemingly impossible! Be encouraged in this and know that Jesus is with you every step of the way - he is the Light in and at the end of every "tunnel" we go through in life. Keep worshipping the King, Christ Jesus - keep believing! You are NOT alone!! With much Love and Compassion,Camino & Carmen
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU!!!!!!! Noah & you both are in my thoughts & prayers. God bless you all!!!!!!!With the love of our Lord & Saviour Jesus,Beth
Two steps forward and one step back. I'm thinking that's how you must feel w/ this newest "unusual occurance." Please keep "us" posted on the news from HH and the CT scan radiation report. I will pray that this will not delay starting Noah's treatments. Just remember even w/ two steps forward and one step back you are still one step ahead. God is good! I hope you guys have The Best Christmas Ever and we all continue to pray for you guys and hope for the very best!
Hey Crowe Family! So sorry to hear about the possibility of the CT scan mistake. I pray that God will watch over Noah and keep him safe during every hospital visit! Glad to see that you got to go enjoy Santa's Village. We took our daughter when she was younger, and we will take our son when he's a little older. I hope that you all have a very Merry CHRISTmas!Lots of Love!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
Crowe Family,You don't know me (although I believe I was acquainted with Jessica many years ago when I lived in AL), but I have one of Noah's bracelets and have been praying for him and your family. My Dad has been battling stage IV GBM brain cancer since September (his Caring Bridge page is linked above). As hard as this has been for my family, I cannot begin to imagine how difficult it must be to watch your young son battle brain cancer. I praise God that you have been able to stay strong, lean on Him, and give Him the glory even on the bad days. How inspiring to those of us who struggle to do that even on the good days! Thank you for your words of faith you post each day. As I think of my Dad and his type of cancer, I'm overwhelmed if I focus on statistics. I'm still counting on my Dad sticking around awhile, but I've realized that no matter how many days I may or may not have with him before he goes home to Jesus, each day he's alive is a gift. I was never promised any particular number of days with him in the first place, so all his diagnosis has really done is make me realize I need to treasure each and every day I have with my loved ones. I pray you will continue to stay strong and take life one day at a time.My sister had a great idea to make my Dad a paper chain, with a link for each day of his radiation treatment. On one side was a Bible verse, and on the other side was a fun memory of something we did with my Dad or something he taught us. Each day he would cut a link to read, and the chain would get shorter and shorter as he neared the end of his treatments. You might try something similar with Noah, once he begins his treatment plan. Maybe purchase an Advent calendar on clearance and fill it with small toys or pieces of candy, or cut paper chain strips from a giant poster and mix them up (number them first, to keep track of where they go) so that each day he tapes one to an outline on the wall and won't have the full picture until the end (which could also be the basis of a good Bible lesson)... Anyway, I just wanted to pass the idea along to help you bring a little fun into it and help mark his progress.I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and that 2010 will be filled with many happy events!
Hey Guys,Am praying for this family that all is going to be well. God does work miracles.Keep up the good faith and We will keep praying and hoping for the best.

Been following your beautiful son through a link on a CaringBridge site. I check on little Noah everyday. For the days to come, may Noah and you (the parents) have a fun and joyful celebration of Jesus' birth. Can't imagine the uncertainties in your world right now but two things are certain...your son is beautiful and we all celebrate Jesus' birth. Merry Christmas!!
We are still praying for Noah and your family! I'm so sorry about the possibilty that Noah may have received too much radiation at HH. I am praying that is not the case. I also thought that I would let you know that my 2 year old, Luke, began losing a large patch of hair on the back right side of his head a few months ago. He had been undergoing MRI scans and an EEG for a blinking tic he had developed right around his second birthday. I was so afraid that the hair loss may have been attributed to the MRI he had received, but I finally realized that he was pulling his hair out at night due to the stress of the procedures. I watched him in his sleep pull at his hair in the exact spot it was coming out. I guess I am hoping that this is the case for little Noah as well. I am praying that it is not a result of the radiation.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, CROWE FAMILY!! Praying for a wonderful outcome for Noah, and Peace for Mom and Dad.
We pray daily for you. Merry Christmas to all. Let us know how we may help.In Him,Jimhttp://www.caringbridge.org/visit/jameshowell
Merry Christmas !! I too promised myself that this was going to be a year of no stress and for us to take time to realize that we are truly blessed...blessed that God gave us his son (WOW) and that he loves us no matter what and we can always go to him!! How awesome God is!!! Sorry to hear about Noah's hair...hope you can find out more about that...just wanted to let you know that we are still praying for you and always will be...God Bless!!Teresa ShortsleeveCOLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.org

Hey! I'm praying for all of you!!! Hope each of you had a wonderful Christmas and was able to get some rest. I'm praying fervently and diligently! Hugs, Vicki Curtis
Hi Crowe Family, I just wanted to let you know that my heart goes out to you all. My family and I are praying for Noah and for you both as well. That Precious Baby Boy of yours is In God's hands and he will take care of him. I don't know or even at times understand why thing's like this happen, but I do know that when they do it makes the thing's in life that we take for granted and think are so small and tend to look over so much more appreciated. Noah's story has opened my eyes, and for that I thank God. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and I wish you all the best for 2010. Always continuing to pray for you all.......Victoria Sammet
We are so happy to hear that you had a fantastic Christmas! We will be lifting you guys up as Noah starts treatment. We pray that he continues to amaze the physicians and everyone around him! May God provide peace, comfort and protection over your entire family!Brandon, Paula, Justin, Noah, GRAY and Cole Anderson
I am so happy to hear that you guys had a wonderful Christmas, and that Noah is recovering faster than expected. GOD IS GREAT!! I will continue to ask God to protect Noah during the MRI and the first chemo treatment. I have also been praying for peace and comfort for both of you. May God continue to work in Noah to rid his body of cancer. Sending lots of love and prayers to you all!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
I am so glad that Noah was able to have a good Christmas. I will be praying for you every chance I get tomorrow. I don't exactly know what to say that can help in anyway...except to hold onto your faith!! Ya'll have amazing faith and that is going to help you out in so many ways. Once again, if there is anything we can do, please let us know. God Bless!!!Teresa ShortsleeveCOLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.org
Thank the lord above for that sweet angel you have.. he is just precious.... so glad he is doing better.. good luck and God Bless yall......Florence,AL
Praying for ya'll today!!!! Love ya'll
I saw this verse today and thought of you."When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid." Psalms 56:3-4
I am Christine Yergert's sister and have been following and praying for you and Noah from the beginning of his diagnosis. Even in the midst of this trial, you and John David are ministering to all who read your blog. May the Lord continue to give you peace, strength, joy and rest. And may His mighty power heal little Noah's body completely!
Our thoughts and prayers remain with Noah...I am amazed at how many lives your little boy has touched...God is continuing to use him.You are such a blessed family.God bless you all Hugs Janet and family
Sweet Baby Noah, I am praying so hard that the chemo will not be too harsh for your little body, but that it will do it's job and get rid of all that cancer! Praying for you every day!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
God led me to your website today through a friend of mine's facebook page. It is amazing to see how God works! Noah has been through so much, yet your faith in God is incredible. You two are very inspirational to me. God has used you to show God's love to others through what you are going through. Your story is hard to read, but it's amazing to see how God is using you to be instruments for him. I pray that God will continue to be the ultimate healer of Noah's life. God is in control of every day in every way.
Happy New Year! Praying for your family to have a blessed new year,with lots of happiness! God IS good,EVERYDAY,ALWAYS!! Really enjoyed your service Sunday,John David!! ~~peace~~
John David,Jessica and precious Noah,we are praying for you.
John David and Jessica- Just like many in our church family I look at Noah's website often and pray even more often. After reading your post today I really felt the need to tell you that we pray about the decisions you have to make....your child, the child you share with us and make us all feel like he belongs to us too, is constantly in our prayers. Love, Franklin and Lisa Williams
John David, Jessica, and Noah. My heart and prayers are with you all. You already know that your strength is in the Lord. Lean on Him. Thank you for the updates and how open and honest you are about your journey. This journey is such a testimony of God's grace, mercy, redemptiion, and strength, and that it is indeed possible for all of His children to actively access these things from Him. Love in Christ, Pat
We visit Friendship when we visit our son & his family in Athens. We have gotten many blessings from our visits there. We are praying for your family.May God Bless you.
Hey!!! Thankful that one treatment is almost over! Just know that it will pass quickly and one day this will only be a faint remembrance. I thought there never would be a day that I wouldn't remember my cancer and chemo, but now there are many days that I don't even think about it.. God not only will heal the body, but the mind...Take care....Praying for you and Noah! Hugs, Vicki
Hey Guys! Just stopping by to say I am still praying for you all! Hope you are having a FANTASTIC 2010 so far! Lots of Love and prayers!!!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
John and Jessica,I am so sorry you all are having to go through this. It is so hard to watch our children go through things and the feeling of helplessness to us as parents can be so hard. We are praying for little Noah and that God will heal his body but we are also praying for both of you, that God will continue to give you the strength that you need. Our God is awesome! We love you guys so much.
John David, Jessica and Noah,Praying for you, without ceasing, for healing, strentgh, and peace. We love you, and are so thankful for your witness through this storm. If you need anything at all we are here! I Love, Courtney
Dear Christians, I am still praying for you daily. I pray that God will heal this tumor in Noah and take it away forever. I am so glad to see you love that baby so much. We are praying God's richest blessings on your family!
I just picked up a copy of Athens Now and read your story. Not surprisingly it brought me to tears. I have a littlle girl who will be 2 in March and seeing the pictures and videos on the website of Noah's little face reminded me of my little one. I have not been obedient in my prayer life but I will be on my knees praying for Noah until he is well. Thank you for sharing your story and inspiring me as a parent and as a Christian.
We are keeping you all in our prayers. I heard a song from the sidewalk prophets called, The words I would say. It says everything and more. May God watch over you and keep you wrapped in his embrass! Love and Blessing,Penny
Praying that you are surrounded by our Sovereign's peace. Blessings,Leslie
Please know that Noah and your family has been in my prayers ever since Mary Swisher brought your situation to my attention...Christ is walking with you!
John David, Jessica and Noah,I just wanted to let you know that you continue to inspire me...prayers and hugs,wendy
Hey guys. I'm still checking on and praying for you all and Noah's treatment. Love you guys!
We are praying for you all the way up here in the Pacific Northwest.. Prayer especially for a great pathology report.
Hey guys. We love you and continue to have you in our thoughts. In Him,Keith and Ellen
Randy and I are praying for you. We haven't stopped, but just wanted you to know. We send you our love.
I am praying for you all daily. I saw this verse today and immediately thought of you. I was touched by the post about signing the papers for Noah's treatment and the guilt you are feeling. You are doing what is right for him, because you are listening to God's word and direction in your situation. That is all we can do as God's children, listen and obey. He will direct you in the path as "surrogate" parents to Noah on earth. He is ultimately Noah's Father and will not leave his side. Stop what you are doing right now...You can feel Him, I know you can!Proverbs 3:5. “Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind, and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. But, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.”God's Love to you Crowe Family!Amy Byrket
Hoping all is well with you all! Still prying for Noah and your entire family!! Love and prayersCOLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
Everyday I check this blog to see how Noah is doing! My family and I pray for him everyday! GOD is SOO Good! I am so glad that he is doing well with the chemo. I pray for the angels of the Lord to be camped around him and keeping him safe! I also pray for John and Jess. I pray that GOD renews your strength with HIs. I pray for peace to settle your hearts! God Bless!Anne' and Travis Campbell
Just to let you know your family is in our prayers every day for healing, peace, and wisdom. Julie
Praise the Lord! How awesome is He. We are so glad to see the update from 01-08-2010. Our sons, Jeremiah (6 years old) and Caleb (4 years old), take their turn everyother night to pray when we put them to bed each night. Out of no where about a month ago Jeremiah included healing for Noah, on his own, and very seriously, I might add. Needless to say I got pretty choked up. Now Caleb does the same. Jack and Kerry Haire are friends of ours and once reading about Noah on the prayer request list I come home and check first thing as my office computer service blocks me from gettin on. Anyway, Jeremiah realized something must be of interest to Dad since he was so persistent on something. Once I explained he has begun to ask rather frequently how Noah is doing. Please take care. We are praying earnestly for Noah and you as well as your parents, etc. In Christ's care and love, Jim, Kim, Jeremiah and Caleb
Jess and JD - Praying right now that the fever Noah has will cease! I praise God for your family and for the glory God is receiving through Noah's illness.Blessings!Mary
Hey Crowe Family! Just wanted to tell you that I am praying that Noah's fever has went away and that you guys get to come home soon! The video of him is PRECIOUS! Praise God for what He is doing in Noah's life! :) Lots of Love and Prayers!!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
PRAISE GOD is all I can say when I read this progress. Know that there are prayers going up for your family, especially Noah, all over the country!God bless you and provide you strength and provide Noah with comfort through his treatment.
I like your "plain ole" blogs Jessica! They are actually my Favorite!! :O) Will continue to pray for Noah. Hope you guys get to come home SOON!!!
I know you love Jesus. I hope you hear Jesus in what I have to say. If you child is eating lots of ice cream, (and I'm assuming it is store-bought from pasteurized milk, full of benzene and other nasty chemicals), it is probably hindering his healing. Sugar feeds cancer, sets the stage for it to flourish, Not to say it is the only thing involved, or even the worst thing about most ice cream, but it jumped out at me. Doctors mean well, but they've bought the lie that diet has a minor impact while drugs, radiation and surgery are the only ways to cure cancer. Drug companies fund medical schools. They won't teach natural cures if they can help it. The thousands of people who made diet and lifestyle and alternative treatment choices that allowed their God-given body to do its God-given job of self-repair know that what I am saying to you today is true: healing follows when we remove the hindrances to healing and when we provide the right environment for healing. I'm glad the doctors were able to stop the progress of this cancer quickly, as life-threatening as it was. But I encourage you not to put all your hope in them for healing. If they can't teach you how to help your body heal itself naturally, they can't help you address the underlying cause so it is less likely to return. Unfortunately, the many drugs they give and the radiation actually hinder the body's ability to fight cancer cells on its own in the future. That is why the war on cancer has been a dismal failure overall. I'm not saying this to make you feel bad, nor to blame doctors.I'm saying these things so you will actively become informed about other things you can do to offer Noah support that is in line with the way God designed the human body. There is no shortage of material on this topic. Two that come to mind..... "A Cancer Battle Plan" is excellent for a first read. Suzanne Somers latest, "Knockout" involves interviews with a whole bunch of doctors whose patients are successfully beating cancer using more body-friendly approaches. Supplements like Waiora's NCD can safely chelate toxic substances from the body - some of which may have caused abnormal cell division to start with, some of which are going to be residues from all the medications Noah has had. A simple substance called MMS safely targets only pathogens, leaving all healthy cells and friendly gut bacteria intact - if a virus was the trigger for the cancer, it can eradicate it - this may be why a number of MMS users are reporting dramatic improvements in cancer issues. IF Noah has heavy metals, he probably has fungus as well, also safely eradicated by MMS. Ingesting large numbers of greens will help mop up toxins while providing minerals AND creating a more alkaline environment so that cancer cell activity is squashed while cell walls work better at bringing in nutrition and removing wastes. Lactofermented vegetables like real sauerkraut (not made with vinegar) also enhance the body's ability to receive nutrition, control pathogens and is protective against radiation damage. My favorite former cancer patient used a whopping quart of kraut per day with a raw vegan diet and eliminated his prostate cancer completely. And he had gorgeous skin for a man in his 70's. I'm barely scratching the surface of all the ways people have reversed cancers, safely. Some of the approaches used to seem fantastic to me until I learned more about them...then they made perfect sense. I pray that you can use this as a jumping off place as you seek to help Noah. May the Lord, who knows every hair on our heads, and knows how many days we have, help you find the best ideas for Noah's particular cancer situation, may He empower you to find some new ways to help your son to get better, feel better, and to fulfill the plans that God made for him to walk in. God bless you all even more!
A lot of people are praying for Noah and for mom and dad!!! No matter what happens God will work through all of you, though I'm confident he's going to be just fine!I wasn't expecting to see someone offer advice on diet and supplements but please - do be open to that. Any doctor worth their salt will tell you sugar does feed cancer. There are safer substitutes like Stevia (we use it to make sweet tea and it's quite good, especially knowing there's far fewer calories going to my gut!) and other treats to keep Noah happy - all worth the looking for and price. God created our bodies with incredible abilities to heal - we just need to make the most of those opportunities.Grace to you all in Christ!
God heals!!!! I will be praying for this precious baby boy and your family!
Still praying for Noah and you and his extended family. I can imagine it must be very hard for all those who love your little boy and cannot spend time with him, even though they understand why. Last week I was talking with my 3 1/2 year old niece. She asked me what I was doing and I told her I was reading about Noah. I told her that he was sick and we were asking God to heal him. She told me that her mommy read her about Noah and the big boat and the animals, etc. She asks me about baby Noah each time I talk with her now. Baby Noah is touching so many lives and is loved by more people than you will ever know.Thank you for taking the time to update us on Noah and for letting us into your lives. You bless us!
We are praying for ya'll in Savannah,GA. !
We are praying for you right now.
dear JD & Jessica,I hope Noah is doing better. We are keeping up with all of you and pray for strength for all of you. Jessica, I know it's hard to be locked up but I agree it does have it's advantages. Special times with Noah and JD. Please know that everyone is praying for all of you. You are such an inspiration to so many. Your faith shines for all to see. God loves all of you and so do we!!Sandy & family
Wanted you to know that our family is still praying for yours! Stay Strong ~ From Second Chronicles, about Jehoshaphat the king of Israel who walked with the Lord " His heart was cheered and his courage high, in the ways of the Lord" This is my prayer for you all!!!!
I have no idea who you are but I heard about Noah through a teacher friend in El Dorado when Noah's tumor was first found. I think and pray for him often. My husband and I have a 2 year old son and I can't imagine what you're going through. My husband was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma last March and it was so hard watching him do chemo and radiation, but I could not imagine our child going through it. Tuesday my husband was officially put in remission and I have thanked God every hour since. I will continue to check on Noah and continue to pray for him and for the both of you. His remission date will be here before you know it!!
Noah and family, Just wanted you to know that I am still praying for you guys! I hope that Noah is feeling GREAT!!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
I first heard about Noah on Facebook and have been following your little guys progress ever since. I will keep him and you in my prayers.
John, I grew up with your Mom in Nashville. I have been praying for Noah and will continue to do so. After talking to Judy today, I went to your blog and watched your video. What a great video - I enjoyed watching Noah and listening to your wonderful lesson. May God be with you, Jessica, and Noah. Judy (Hall) Warren, Franklin, Kentucky

Hello there, I just wanted to say that I would be praying for your beautiful little boy and following your blog to see how he is doing. I have a son who has some chronic medical issues and can understand the heartache that goes along with seeing your child struggle. I pray that God lifts you up and encourages you through this time. That He gives Noah's doctors wisdom to care for him, and strenght and health for Noahl. God Bless
Hi John and Jessica,I just wanted to let you know that we're praying for you and Noah. God bless you all.
I'm so thankful for the great days that you're having and already praying for the next treatment. May God bless you with sleep, fun, and peace this week. Hugs, Vicki Curtis
We're still praying for you guys. I was glancing back through the guestbook and saw a couple of people express concern over the amount of ice cream Noah eats. I know diet is important, but when I first read your blogs about ice cream I had to smile because I was just glad that he was eating at all. I remember how hard it can be to get even a healthy toddler to eat, and I wouldn't be surprised to learn Noah's medications cause nausea or loss of appetite. I certainly believe these entries had something of value to say, but don't put TOO much stock in advice from well-meaning family, friends, acquaintances or strangers (like me). You know your son better than any of us. Instead of listening to us, listen to your heart so you can hear what God has to say (after all, He knows him even better than you do).Take care and God bless!
Hey, Thanks Amy! I priase God for ice cream. We are glad for every piece of advice because we know it represents concern for Noah. I like you am glad when he eats anthing !God Bless!John David
hi! i have been thinking about your family today as i often do. My 31/2 yr. old son Landon and I prayed for Noah today at naptime. I read the most recent blog from you. Noah sounds like a very happy and typical 2 yr. old! And yes There is A lot of frustration at that age!! LOL! I think maybe it is because they want to say and express so much, but it is sometimes that they just can't get it out right. I bet it seems like your 4 walls are starting to close in. I think all Mom's feel like that, especially in the winter time! This will pass and i know the Lord will restore this time to your family! I am excited for all the treatments to be over and you all to be able to enjoy a normal life! I think you are some of the strongest parents i have ever seen!! exchange your strength for HIS! 2Cor. 1:5 Says, he will lighten our load. psalm 34:7...Thank You for keeping ALL of us updated. My prayers are with you. I will close and pray the Lord surrounds you with his perfect peace. God Bless you ALL
John and Jessica, Just wanted you guys to know that you are in my prayers multiple times a day. I pray that God just gives you Peace as Noah is healing from this evil thing that has come into his little body. I give thanks everyday for the healing that is GOING to take place in Noah. We are only human an so we do ask why? But I believe that the people that have been touched by your experience is the why. I love you guys and will continue to give God the glory for what is about to do in Noah. John I honestly believe you are my brother because for several weeks before I found out about what was going on with Noah, you were in my thoughts alot and I would stop and pray to God that whatever you where going through or about to go through that he just give you strength and be by your side whatever may take place. Maybe that is why in the hospital you didn't lose it completely, which by the way I admire you for the way you handled that because I would have probably went to jail. Love you Man. Keep the blogs coming. Jessica hang in there girl God will lift you up.
Jessica,I'm so glad to hear your humanity come out. It comforts me to hear you talk about your frustrations. Just know that we all love you and hear and feel your pain. I don't know your journey, but I do know mine--and we all certainly have a journey. Pain is the great equalizer. No one holds another accountable for expressing their frustration except for the person who has not had pain. When they feel the pain, the frustrations will come and usually they are hard to handle. We all just need to know that we are all temporary here and that one day all will be made right because of Jesus.God bless you both,Keith
We are praying for your today (every day) Jess,John and Noah.We do serve a Mighty God.
I saw this posted on FB the other day and thought of y'all. "Stop telling God how big your storm is. Instead, tell the storm how big your God is." I think that's what you guys are doing, every minute... every day. Keep it up. You're in our prayers. Bass Wallace & Amy Camp
God Bless your family. I cannot imagine what you must be going thru. I think it would probably be very normal to feel all the emotions your feeling though. I will pray for you everyday and ask God to lay his hands on Noah and you and your husband as well.
Hey Noah and Family! I am so glad to see the update that things are going well this time! I am still praying for all of you every day! Jessica- Having a 17 mth old, I can relate to your "frustrations" but, because of Noah's (and so many others) story, I have to remind myself daily that he is a GIFT from God, and I am so thankful for every moment I have with him!! Hang in there, I am praying for you!!Lots of Love and Prayers!!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
I ate my way through chemo....whatever tasted good. I was told that now is not the time to worry about calories, fat, etc. Wish someone would tell me that now...ha! Let Noah eat whatever he wants and as much of it as he will eat! May God bless Noah with energy and you with strength and patience. Hugs, Vicki
Christian friends....Don't know you or anyone in your family but am so deeply touched by your story. Little Noah is such a beautiful child and obviously very strong and courageous. I check on Noah daily. Pray nothing but the best for a quick recovery and a complete healing from the horrible C.

continued prayers for your family. I pra for Noah to have peace as he is being trated and that he can have all the understanding that is possible for such a tiny boy. I also pray now Lord that you will carry John and Jessica as they try to deal with the heartbreak of seeing their baby in such pain and turmoil. Give this family strength and peace and direction in the care of Noah. Give the Doctors and medical workers wisdom and direction in the diagnosis and treatment option for his total healing.

Just wanted to let you know that you and your family continue to be such an inspiration to mine. We think of you often and have Noah's page bookmarked on our tool bar, it's one of the first things I check every morning. Praying in Bankston, AL.Dannielle & Family
John, Jessica, and Noah,Our hearts, prayers, and thoughts are with you all as you go through this difficult time. Jeff and Anne-Marie Haddock sent us your website. It has been moving and inspirational to read. We are Jeff's parents....and his dad is the pastor at Redlands United Methodist Church in Grand Junction Colorado. We will be keeping you all in our prayers! Blessings on your family! Roni Haddock
John, Jessica & Noah,I do not know you nor do you know me. Someone posted your pancake bfast on our online bulletin board at work with a link to your site and so I have found you. My family has started praying for your family in our nightly prayers and truth be told I think of you randomly through the day, everyday and pray then as well. Please know God is using you, your life, and your blog to touch people. I read your blog this morning and was deeply touched. You see my son will be two in May. He was very sick last week so Saturday I slept on the couch with him to keep his head elivated. He rolled off in the middle night and hit his head so hard it immediatly swelled up and turned blue. I was horrified, this is horrible to me. Perspective is on Saturday your baby was sick and hit his head and my anguish was nothing in comparisson with yours. Please don't beat yourself up over Noah hitting is head. You are an incrediable mother who is so strong. Your light and love in Jesus is beautiful. Keep your head up. Be proud of how you have handled what the Lord has given you. He is so proud of your love for Him even when you were so scared and hurt. Again, we do not know you but we love you and your family and we are lifting you up daily! May God carry you daily as you shine his light for him.
My deepest heart felt prayers for Noah and family. Let your lil light shine brightly for all to see. Know that you are loved by many. xoxoxox
Jessica and John - I check on and pray for Noah every day. He is blessed to have you as parents. Hang in there and know that we are thinking all good healing thoughts as we raise our arms in supplication to God for you and sweet Noah. Love, Cassandra (Mrs. Moore, AHS)
Dear Crowe Family,I met Mary Wagner and she asked me to pray for Noah. We lifted all of you to the throne of God and cried out for mercy. I live in Birmingham and plan to check on you Tuesday. I pray you will sense God's nearness.
Praying for all of you! I hope you get to come home soon! Lots of love and prayers!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
Jess and John, Jesse and I sit at the computer everyday and I tell him Noah is his cousin. We pray for him even tho he's still a little young to know what that is. He loves the videos, especially when he sees Elmo. We hope to see you all sometime this summer so the boys can meet. Love to you all. Stay strong.

God has put Noah on my heart and I think of you often. Your Faith is inspiring and healing to those of us with problems no where near the size of "a sick child". Noah is as Blessed to have you as you are him. God will bless you all through this, and us as well.

Dear Noah, Jessica, and JohnYou are in our prayers every night and especially when my six year old Jeremiah prays. Then when putting him to bed he often reminds me to check on Noah so I can update him the next day. We lift you up for peace, strength, comfort and healing as only Christ Jesus can give. Noah is a CHAMP in every sense of the word and so very, very precious in the eyes of our Lord. In Christ's Love and Sincerity, Jim and Kim

We are praying for you all. Just thought I'd let you know. Randy & Christine
hi my name is Paulo, about 3 weeks ago when we first encountered about Noah’s story we were very compassionated to pray for him. Every Wednesday we have a “Victory Service” and we asked the church to pray for Noah, so as we all praying, I had a vision! An Angel from God was removing a fruit or it look like a fruit from Noah’s head while he was in an emergency room surrounded by doctors operating on him, so I went told my Pastor a bought it after the service was done. At the same time another person came and told the Pastor that she had a vision of an orange being removed from his head as well. I have committed to pray for him everyday, sorry I did not write before but we just found your blog. God Bless
Hey guys. We are heading off to church but had to stop by and check on any updates first. I'm taking it that no news is good news. God bless you and give you strength.

Hey Crowe family, just wanted to say hi and wish Noah a very happy birthday!!Praying for you daily!! Love ya'll
I saw one of Noah's bracelets on a co-worker at the arsenal and he clued me in on the sheer determination and strength of this little angel. We realize just how great GOD is and his unconditional love for us we are at our weakest moments in life. Your little Noah is an inspiration to our family and we will continue to pray for your family. God bless all.
Good morning! I still check on you guys daily to see how things are going. You are constantly in my prayers! Love you!

You're right, 'to whom much is given, much is required' is biblical. My mother and I were just talking about this the other day.The Parable of the Faithful Servant or Parable of the Door Keeper is a parable told by Jesus in Mark 13:34-37 and Luke 12:35-48.We love you more each day and will not stop praying. Dustin, Jeannie,and Heath

Hi there!I just wanted to let your family know that we really are praying for you on a daily basis. We have been going to Friendship for a month now. We are very new. But, we researched the church and immediately found your story. I have 3 kids. We have a 7 year old, a 2 year old and a 9 month old. I cannot imagine what you are feeling. Each time I look at your website for updates, my heart breaks for each of you and I'm immediately brought to tears. Noah is a brave little boy. You all will continue to be in my thoughts and my prayers.
i am 14years old and was touched when i came to children's to give out teddy bears. i want to help the kids as much as possible. i want to start a community service project to help so i was going to ask Noah's parents how i could help. What can i do to make kids like Noah happy? Please give me a few ideas on how i can help. I will be praying for Noah.:)
I've been keeping up with Noah's progress through Laura Reinhardt. She has shared many wonderful stories about your family. I am praying for you and so touched by all of your strengths, especially Noah's.
Still praying for Noah (and you two daily). "'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future'" (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)
Dear Noah:I am praying for you right now that you continue to feel better and know that you are loved !Mommy and Daddy:I just found out about your son on another site . . . I will begin praying today for God's complete and miraculous healing for Noah.In ChristCeleste
Answering your question about things to do in Birmingham: You should take Noah to the McWane Science center in downtown. It's 4 floors of fun activities and they have an IMAX that shows educational movies. Philip McWane is on the board at Children's so I'm sure his center and the hospital have a pretty good relationship....so maybe your nurses could get you guys free parking or even free tickets?? No harm in asking. (= I've been several times and it is great fun for all ages and you learn lots! Praying for Noah!Katie
Ran accross your address when checking on Kate McCrae...Our prayers will include Noah from now on...What a gift from God this sweet little guy is!! I will continue to look in on you and pray for Noah on a daily basis. (Grandmas are good at that!)
We love you guys and are always remembering you in our prayers. I thank God that He provides just the right amount of grace and peace that we require in each situation. Please know that you are such a blessing to all who know you and to those who you touch through this site. Randy and Christine
Praying for ALL of you this morning!! Praying especially hard that the MRI will show NO tumor cells at all!!!! Love and prayers!!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
There is a zoo in Birmingham so that would be a good thing to do; especially if its a pretty day. I'm praying for #4!
We are praying for little Noah and for all of those that take care of him. May God give all of you strength to see little Noah through. May the Lord watch down on all of you day and night. Margaret
I will be thinking of you all morning tomorrow, because we will be arriving at 6:45 am for our 8:30 MRI. It is wild to me that we our sons are having their MRIs at essentially the same time. It will help me remember to pray for you!

I know my suggestion is too late for this week, but I second the nomination of the McWane Center (www.mcwane.org) as a fun place to visit next time you're in Birmingham. I think Noah would love it!
Praying that Noah will feel much better and for strength all around...
I am friends with Rod and Lisa and have been following your story for awhile. Noah is precious and your strength amazes me. I am praying for healing and peace for all of you.

Grace & Peace to you.

I know i have never met most of yall and that is a shame but we are still family and we are here for each other. God Bless you guys and little Noah.
Hi!I came accross this blog while searching for scriptures on finances. God has great plans for your son. I would like to bring about this, bcause all you want to see in your son is him walking in divine health, so pls visualise that in you spirit (i.e. Noah walking in divine health, with a strong immune system and with the turmor having disappeared). And every minute start confessing what you want to see in your son, eg. Declare Noah is healed, his body functions according to the perfection God has made it to function, oppression is far from him, he walks, he runs, every part of his body functions well, the devil is a liar, the Lord has already in place great plans for him, to prosper him, and not to harm him, fear is far from me and my family as we stand strong for Noah, God is not a man that He should lie, Noah is healed in Jesus mighty name, Amen. Pls confess this every chance that you get. It worked for me, I am healed because of that confession. God loves you.
Hi! My name is Nayang, I came across this website when I was searching for scriptures on finances. God has great plans for your son. He is the heir of Abraham. I understand what you are going through, and I want you to start exercising your faith in this manner. In your heart you want your son walking in divine health. Therefore, through your SPIRITUAL eyes visualise your son walking in divine health. Confess the following every minute that you get: "Noah is healed, he is walking in divine health, his body functions according to the perfection God has made it to function, God has got great plans for him, to prosper him and not to harm him, oppression is far from him, from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet the life of God flows in his body, every part of his body, his bloodflow, his vessel, every vein, every cell of his body runs the spirit of God. Fear is far from us as we stay strong for Noah, the Lord is our strength, the devil is a liar, Noah is healed, the cancer is no more, his immune system is restore, white blood cells you are restored in Jesus mighty name. Cancer, you have no place in Noah's life, you are dead, I cast you out in Jesus name, amen". This confessions helped me a lot. I'm healed by confessing such.
Hey guys, we are not at church tonight because Michael has some crude. Anyway, we are sitting here on the sofa reading Noah's blog and praying for each person in your family. When you are in the middle of the storm you think it might never pass...and at times you may not be able to remember what it was like before the storm...but you will come out of the storm into bright skies and cloudless days!
Just wanting you to know that Noah and you are in our throughts and prayers. I miss seeing your blog the last couple of days and hoping you are enjoying the spring weather and not back at the hospital. We love you! Keith, Gena & Shayna
I hope you all had a Happy Easter! The weather was beautiful down here. And our church worship service rocked! It is still not like being at home at Friendship. We miss you and are praying that Noah is strong, happy and enjoying the Easter Bunny and finding those eggs. I remember when Michael was his age. He loved to hunt for eggs. It still makes me smile thinking of it. I know you are cherishing every moment with your child too. What a blessing! God constantly amazes me with his love and creativity - all the things that he gives us so richly to enjoy.Sorry to be rambling. Just wanted to let you know you are loved. Grace and peace. Christ is risen - indeed!
I've been following Noah's story since he was diagnosed. I am a friend/coworker of Scarlet Brooks, and she posted about Noah on Facebook. Your family has been in my thoughts and prayers ever since then, and I check your blog everyday.Yesterday (Easter Sunday) at church, these words from the hymn "Because He Lives" jumped out at me and made me think of Noah."How sweet to hold a newborn baby,and feel pride and joy He gives;but greater still the calm assurance,this child can face uncertain days because He lives."As a mother, I want you to know that your faith overwhelms me and moves me deeply.
I am praying for Noah and your familly. I have never had to deal with the kind of thing you guys are but I wanted to say how lucky Noah is to have such great parents. hang in there, your doing a wonderful job
I am believing with you for Noah's healing. "But he was wounded for Noah's transgressions, he was bruised for Noah's iniquities; the chastisement of Noah's peace was upon him; and with his stripes Noah is healed." Isaiah 53:5
My heart and prayers go out to Noah and your family. Thank the good lord that he has such wonderful parents with great faith. Parents stay strong and Noah keep fighting.
We love you and are constantly praying for you!!Randy and Christine
I just heard through FB about this website for Noah. I know that with God's help he will be fine, and keep fighting. You all are in my family's and my prayers. <3~Jessica
Hey guys, I just had you deeply on my heart this morning. I know that you are all tired and I cannot begin to imagine how you feel. I do know this that your thoughts and comments as you journey through this tough time have been an encouragement and strength for so many. I do believe that the Father is there with you through it. I don't understand it, but this world stinks and I can't wait till the next one comes along. Come soon Lord Jesus!I love you guys and pray for you often. Keith
JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT GOD'S PLAN FOR OUR LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS THE PLAN WE HAVE FOR OURSELVES. BY LOOKING AT THIS WEBSITE I CAN SEE THAT NOAH IS TOUCHING MORE LIVES THAN YOU BOTH REALIZE. AS I LOOK AT MY WRIST AND SEE HIS NAME, I AM BLESSED TO HAVE MET HIM. MY CHURCH AND I ARE PRAYING DAILY FOR HIM. THE PRAYER CLOTH I CALLED YOU ABOUT IS IN THE MAIL ALONG WITH A SURPRISE FOR NOAH. WITH LOTS OF PRAYER LOVE, TASHA
Good morning! Still thinking and praying for you guys. So glad to hear you're home for a few days before going back. Praying for good numbers on the bloodwork so that the treatment can continue as planned. Love you all!
Hi there Crowe family!We were honored to attend the pancake breakfast at FUMC in March, and it was wonderful to sense the love and support from the people there! My mom met up with us there, and she was able to donate blood for the first time ever in her life. She has also needed blood three times in her life, and was unable to get it-she has a rare one, A-. Needless to say, she was honored to give in Noah's name. We know it was a "God-thing", and she was happy to share of how God allowed her body to donate.Do you by chance know how much the Life South was able to collect in Noah's name? It was a terrific turnout! Yeah!You are in our family's prayers, and we appreciate being able to see updates via the blog.The Jacksons-in Louisiana,Troy, Barb, Kirsten, Geoffrey, Ellis...and "Grandma"-Marty Burke too!
Hey guys!Just wanted to let you know that we are still praying. My Sunday School class puts you guys at the top of our prayer request list every week. Those girls have been so faithful about praying for you they even did it while I was out right after our baby girl made her grand entrance.God bless you.
Good Evening, Crowes,I have missed a few days on the blog and am overjoyed that you made it home earlier this week. Also good to hear that Noah is gaining little blood cells. I am praying that this treatment is effective beyond all expectations. And that Noah will be in remission (is that the correct term for permanent cancer-free state?) until Jesus meets us in the air!!!I can only imagine the fatigue you must be feeling, so I am praying also for you to be strengthened beyond human experience. And that the Holy Spirit fills you anew every morning with Joy and Peace and Patience.The blessings of God to you.
Sharon HowarthI just viewed the Gospel according to Noah--This was a kairos word for me guys...out of your lives and hardships God is getting so much glory.Thanks for following Him with such love and passionate abandon.Have been praying since 11/24 when I first heard here in the Shoals.Love you, all 3! And John, I'm so proud of you son.Sharon
Hello Noah and Family... Our daughter Ellie was diagnosed 2 years ago with an S-PNET. She is cancer free now and doing well. God has shown us the way and we have had quite a divine journey. We will check back with you and pray for you. God Bless!!!
So happy to hear that Noah is feeling well and you guys are able to enjoy some fun days. I loved the picture of him by the creek. May God continue to bless you with strength and healing for Noah. I look forward to seeing your story this week on Channel 19 and hopefully I can find you on the Dave Ramsey show on Friday as well. Love 2 U All! Gena
Hey guys! I hope that everything went good with chemo and that you guys are back home! Still praying for complete healing for sweet Noah! Lots of love and prayers!!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
I'm Christine Yergert's sister and just wanted you to know that I'm praying for you guys tonight. God bless you.Mycha
I woke up thinking about you guys this morning so after checking the blog I had yet another chat with God about what amazing people you are and how thankful everyone is that Noah has done so well even with all the bumps in the road. I continue to pray for you each and every day. I shared Noah's story in my class at church a few weeks ago and about how I believe God has used Noah to do so many good things...including opening my eyes and bringing me back to Him!! Needless to say there was not a dry eye in the room, expecially not mine! We Love you guys and are here for ANYTHING you may need!!Love and prayers,Becca
Just to say I'm still praying every day for Noah and J. D. and Jess . . . I pray for peace, successful treatment, and a minimum of suffering for all. I pray that God will empower all of the medical team to find the right treatments for Noah that will result in a cure for his cancer. Cancer does get cured very often, and I pray daily for this outcome. My 22-year old great nephew has now been diagnosed with brain cancer, had surgery, and is undergoing treatment in a clinical trial for a new therapy. His prognosis is terminal, just a matter of time. The treatment may extend the time, but all is unknown at this point. With love and prayers for all the Crowe family,mary
Hey guys, just checking in. Hope the week is going well and that you have a great weekend! Love you all!
We saw you on Dave Ramsey's show. Congratulations. Your website is wonderful and you are great examples. God is using you and sweet Noah and it is truly an inspiration. We'll hold you in our prayers.
Hope you have had a wonderful Mother's Day Jessica!!

Hi Crowes,I will be praying for GREAT news from the MRI on Wednesday!!!!Love ya!!C.O.L.E.'s Foundation(Caring Openly, Loving Eternally)www.colesfoundation.comEmail: email@example.com/7 Prayer Line 888-365-COLE (2653) Sandy Daron
Just wanted you to know that, even if we don't see you much anymore, you're still in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Pamie & Greg Kiyak
Through a friend on facebook, I heard about your son, Noah. God listens to our hearts, please know that is where we'll keep Noah as he goes through this MRI. God is with him, without a doubt.
Hey guys, just read the blog about the MRI. I am so happy for you that the news was good...but not surprised. God is faithful! Michael and I will be praying for the big decision you have to make. With God's guidance I know you will make the right decision for you right now. Whatever decision you make WILL be the right decision for right now. Don't go back and second guess as things never look the same when looking back. We love you all!
I saw on facebook that you had an accident yesterday. I'm so glad noone was hurt. Randy and I are still praying for you very often. Please let us know if we can help you in ANY way. We love you!Christine
Just to tell you that Noah remains in my prayers and both of you as well.
Hey guys, just watched the video with today's post. Oh, I started tearing up....wow, what Noah, and you guys, are enduring. Thank you for posting. It helps me, and everyone, better know how to pray for you! Much love to you all, Myra
I pray every day for your precious little son, Noah. God has given him wonderful and caring parents and family to love, comfort, and care for him.
I am pulling the midnight shift for ya Noah! The Lord laid you on my heart tonight so, I came to see what was going on with you and I see you are back to the Chemo treatments. : ( Don't you love how God works in mysterious ways to lay you on my heart at such a time as this. I hope you are standing strong little man! You amaze me with your strength! My little Kate bewilders me with her courage too... I have yet to see another kid dance down the hall to the Dr's office singing that she is getting a shot! I bet you'd do something like that too though, huh? Many prayers and blessings! Ann
I love the new picture display that you have added to the home page. Noah is so precious! Praying for Noah and your family often. God bless you!
I also love the new photos. I hope when we get to Athens, Noah will be up to a visit. Praying constantly for all of you.God Bless
Praying for Noah tonight...and you guys too!!!Love & Laughter,Mycha(Christine Yergert's sister)
Just read John David's post about hating it that Noah even knows about blood work, shots, chemo, etc. I hate that your little guy has to know about all of this but I love it that he has got to be the toughest little boy in the state, maybe in the world! Dear God, I pray that soon Noah will be forever healed of this horrible cancer. I pray that this world of shots, blood tests, chemo, etc. will soon come to an end and little Noah will get to have a new 'normal' where the worst thing he needs to be tough for is Mommy washing a skinned knee. I am praying every day for the day when Noah gets to experience this new 'normal'. Until that day comes, I pray that God continues to be with Noah so that he can be 'tough' and endure what he must for the chemo to rid his body of this cancer forever. Noah is an amazing child and I have no doubt that God has great things planned for his life.with love in Christ,Karen Weston (Nikki Colwell's mom)
John David... I know exactly what Chick Fil A you are talking about. We stop there EVERY time we have to go to Children's for something. It's usually lunch time when we stop, and I have to say, the people working the drive through are the friendliest people I have ever encountered at a fast food place. I even told the guy that last time we were there 3 weeks ago. I'm so happy that the manager was so good to you! I am still praying for Noah and your entire family every day. My prayer is that God will cure his body of every single cancer cell FOREVER! Please let me know if I can ever do anything for you guys!Love and prayers!!JawanaCOLE's Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
I'm a friend of the Beattys and Reinhardts. I have been following your story and praying for you all.
So good to see you both John David and Noah (in carrier tandem) pedal biking at Canebrake Golf Course this evening! We zoomed passed each other over the second bridge (by the 15th tee) - It took a few seconds to recognize you both, but I was so excited to see Noah and said out loud "Noah's home!"
Still praying for healing and grace and peace for all of you!

I will keep you and your precious baby boy in my prayers always.
I've been thinking of your family often! Noah has grown so much! How many rounds of chemo do you have left now?
Hey Noah,My sons hardly miss a night praying earnestly for you and they ask me, often, if I know how you are doing. We love you Noah, and are praying for your mom, dad, and grandparents, too. I bet you'll be riding that tractor and mower soon enough by yourself, huh?! Jesus LOVES you little buddy and so do we. Count on it !!
Hello Noah and family, You don't know me and that doesn't matter. A friend made me aware of your journey months ago. I have been praying for you ever since and just wanted to say, never give up! Keep the faith. You will beat this!! You are so brave and you have so many people praying for you. May God keep you in the palm of his hand.
John and Jessica,I am soo very sorry!! I know that is NOT what you were expecting. I pray that God will direct the physicians hands and give them wisdom and discernment for the surgery.I pray you have a great time on your getaway.Love ya!!C.O.L.E.'s Foundation (Caring Openly, Loving Eternally)www.colesfoundation.com
Praying for Noah and your family. I check your site everyday for updates and will continue to.
We are so sorry to hear about the MRI. We are praying for you guys!
This is atleast the second brain tumor in a child that I have heard of in the past two years. Kackenzie Matthews, belongs to our church congregation. In cry when I think of the world today, how we have our treated it and how it is affecting our precious little angels. I am writing to give you hope. Mackenzie has finished her treatment, altough her life will never be the same, she is back in school and doing wonderfully. She has been in remission several months. Not onlly does she go to our church my daughter is a classmate of this little girl, at school.
We continue to send our love and prayers up for all three of you...and your extended family. My hope is that enough of us will pray and through that prayer will bring you strength so amazing that you KNOW it comes from somewhere outside yourself.
Have only just been able to go to the blog and see the story. I knew the events from being at Friendship, but am only now able to handle seeing all the "cancer stuff". Have been praying for Noah all along. I am so saddened by the news in this latest MRI. Its like a punch in the gut. (been there, done that with the cancer news). Stay strong and know that God loves you and is working this out for the best. Only He knows what is truly Best.
My family prays for Noah and your family. May God grant you strength, healing and peace today and the days to come. Only God is the devine healer, the Doctors, nurses, and staff are His instruments.
John and Jessica, We pray for Noah and you guys every day, you are always in our thoughts and prayers. I believe that God is watching over Noah, and that he has an amazing plan for him that we just can't see or understand yet. Never lose faith. We love you and if we can help you in any way, please tell us. We are only a short drive away. Brandi and AJ
John, Jessica, and Noah,We pray for you guys daily. I really don't understand all of this. In some ways it really frustrates me. Your faith is an example to us all. We love you and hope to see you soon.In Him,Keith and Ellen and family.
My heart is heavy with your burden. If I may, I feel the need to offer this prayer on your behalf.Lord, You are always in control of everything in our lives. You are in control of the events that bring us joy, sorrow, comfort, and peace. On behalf of this precious family, I pray that You hear this prayer from a child of Your Kingdom. Lord, in the Name of Your Son, Jesus, I speak the blessing of healing on Noah. You have told us that whatever we ask in Your Name, it will be granted to us. I believe this because You said it. Just like I believe that You will heal this little boy and bring sunshine and joy back into the hearts of his parents.Use this child, Lord, as a proof of miracles so that whomever is not a believer in You, will see the Power in Your Hands. They know what the MRIs show, but, Lord, you can beat the surgeons to it and totally remove this tumor from this child's brain. Make him whole and complete. His parents are believers in You. They will be an even stronger witness for You and they will have living proof of Your Power and Love. Heal this child in the Name of Your Most Precious Son, Jesus. Amen and amen.

We have been praying for Noah since he first had a website. We will be praying especially hard this week for him and his parents. We pray that God will give you the strength and peace you need to endure this week and for Noah to have strength and comfort.
My best friend keeps your son posted on her FaceBook page, I've checked in a few times to Noah's blog. Noah is being prayed for very much. I don't know you, but I am crying with you. That sweet face touches my heart as does his bravery.
I just wanted to let you know that a random person in Middle Georgia will be praying for yall tomorrow. A person I graduated high school with posts updates on Noah frequently so I'm quite certain that your sweet boy (and you, of course) will be in the minds and prayers of MANY people tomorrow. Be brave even when you want to crumble!
Just wanted to tell you that we love you all so much, and our heart aches for you right now. The things we've experienced with our girls have been minor, but I know the hurt of a parent's heart. I wish I could take this from you, but in lieu of that, we're praying continually for Noah, his medical team, and for you two.
hi noah i hope you get better i loveyou verey mutch i like playing withyou you are a verey good cusin ihope you get out uv the hospbitli will pray four you avrey dayfrome evie.

John David, Jess, and Noah, We are praying for you, and Love you all so very much!
We send our support, our love, and most importantly: our prayers!
Dear Noah, I have known your grandparents Sonya & Brad most of my life, Brad from the first grade, Sonya from Junior High. It was love at first site for Brad. Their love is what everyone searchs for their whole life and only a few ever find what they had. And from that love you were born and I truly believe God has a plan for you and your family. I have you in my heart every minute. May God work fast for your recovery.
“Now may the Lord of peace Himself continually grant you peace in every circumstance. The Lord be with you all!” 2 Thessalonians 3:16 “And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Phillipians 4:7 "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.” John 14:27I pray that the Lord will give you His prevailing peace today. I pray that the Lord will give the doctors wisdom from on high and skill beyond their natural abilities. Lord, protect Noah and keep him safe. You are awesome God and worthy of our praise. Be glorified today in this situation.
So many prayers going up for you guys today!!! We love you!!
Praying that "the angel of the Lord will encamp around you" throughout this trying time......Psalm 34:7
I am praying for you constantly today. My prayer is that God will guide the surgeons and that they will remove ALL of the cancer and that it will forever be GONE!

Dear Jess & J. D.: My thoughts and prayers are with you every day. I don't send comments as you have so many of those. But I have never stopped praying for all of you, and am still wearing my Noah prayer bracelet to keep me focused on my prayer intentions. Very glad he came through the surgery apparently very well -- he's a tough little guy and a real trooper, as are you both. Your faith and trust in the Lord is inspiring to all of us keeping up with your, and Noah's, story. May God's healing hand bring an end to all of your suffering, and restore Noah to good health forever.Love and continuing prayers,mary swisheratlanta, ga

Praying for your sweet little boy.
Hey John and Jessica,John is was so great getting to meet with you! Asbury is praying and we love you guys! Noah, get well soon, you are the man!!
Your story is truly nothing a parent wants to ever go through. I haven't heard of your story before today, but just know you now have one more person that is praying for your family.
As Misty Haney said I am praying and our love goes out to and through God our father.
So excited to her Noah's GREAT NEWS after coming through surg. You've been in our prayers. GOD IS GOOD!!!!
Jessica, John, & Sweet NoahWe have never personally met. My family and I have followed Noah's journey from the beginning. We pray for him daily and for you. I have 3 small son's each of which adds Noah to their nightly and morning prayers. We are so excited about the last surgery it sounds really good. You have such a strong little boy. Your words are a huge testament to the Lord and an inspiration to us all. God Bless!The Cooper Family
We are so thankful that Noah is doing so well. You all remain in our daily thoughts and prayers! Brandon, Paula, Justin, Noah, Gray and Colewww.caringbridge.org/visit/graysonanderson
Noah, John & Jessica,GOD IS SO GOOD! I am so happy that the surgery was a success and you are going home. I too, like so many have been keeping up with Noah and praying for all of you. May God continue to keep you in his care!In Christian Love,Angie SmithAthens, AL
Hello, Once I heard about Noah my heart swelled for him. I kniw this has been a very hard experience for you. I will keep you in my prayers. May God Almighty bless you, your family, and Noah. I am so happy his surgery went well and I know in my heart that he is a fighter.God bless.
God bless and take care of little Noah. Please Lord place your healing hands on him and give him a quick recovery so he can be happy and healthy. Amen.
We continue to pray for sweet Noah. We are believing that soon he will be just a normal 2 year old running around the two year old Sunday School room, healthy and happy.
It is so good to hear that Noah made it through surgery well. We can't wait to see him again soon. Praying for you all.
I am so glad Noah is doing great,the power of GOD is so awesome!May he continue to heal.Yall will always be in my prayers.WITH LOVE AND HOPE,YOUR FRIEND IN JESUS ROSE !!!!!
Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you that we are praying for you........ and the decisions that have to be made. ~~May He give you the vision to see simple beauty in each day.. those little glimpses of his abiding LOVE and His Holy presence! ( today i was outside doing chores and fretting about one of my teenagers when I looked up and saw the brightest patch of blue sky with an orange leaf dancing, falling, and swirling down from the trees..) Tiny moments of His grace that whispers of His love to your soul is what I pray that He will bless you with today...
Thank you for the update and Noah as well as both yours and Johns family are in my prayers.
I am sure you have much more to say. This is a lot of information for you to process a deal with all at once. God is always with you and will give you the strength needed to get through anything life gives you - as long as you allow him to and I know your faith is strong. He never gives us more than we can handle. It is great that Noah is doing so well since his surgery and understand the doctors point completely. That is a huge decision to make and I know that both of you will go to God and ask his assistance as you make this decision. I pray that he guides you and protects Noah through the process. God will give him the courage to make it through this and he gave Noah both of you to help him find that courage and to do what is needed here upon the earth for his/your son.Many blessing upon your family.Cynthianna Mead
I pray often for Noah and my heart breaks for your family. As I read your last post, all I could think about was the song "I Surrender All." As you know, life is all in God's hands regardless of the choices we make or do not make. I will continue to pray for your family and the decisions that you must make in the weeks to come. I hope it brings you encouragement to know that so many are praying for you. Just "Surrender All" to him and he will make the choice for you. May God continue to bless and be with your family in this time of need. Please let Noah know that I am praying for him!! The Lord will never leave us!!!
John David and Jessica:It has been an absolute privilege to meet you both since we have begun attending FUMC. What an incredible testament of God's love, faithfulness, and strength your precious family is! We have been remembering you all in our prayers, and we are trusting God for His perfect healing in His perfect timing for Noah. What a blessing he is, has been, and will be! If there is anything we can do at any time, please don't hesitate to ask. We are happy to do anything we can!In Him,Tommy and Jessica
I have always thought of your family often because I knew that we were both going through similar things, but now I think of you even more because we are both going through what we could never imagine, even in the hardest days of chemotherapy. My prayer now is that God responds with miracles greater that we can ask or imagine.
Your in my thoughts and prayers.
I pray that the treatments go GREAT for Noah and that he does not have too many bad side effects.♥♥ Love ya!! ♥♥C.O.L.E.'s Foundation (Caring Openly, Loving Eternally)www.colesfoundation.com
Hi John David. You probably do not remember me. I worked with the Daycare at Friendship and we would run into one another a lot in the gym. We talked one day in the little coffee area about marriage, because i was getting married soon. You showed me the list that you carry around in your wallet that you and your wife made out together. Well that story has stayed with me during my marriage of 3 years now! We have a 2 year old son named Eli. Eli has never meet Noah but he likes to look at his pictures on the computer! We pray every night and Eli tells me to pray for Noah and his (what eli calls)his "booboo". You and your family are always in our prayers!
I'm glad to see that Noah is so far responding well to the new treatments. I've read a LOT of research on the latest clinical trials for brain cancer (since my dad is also fighting it), and the particular treatment Noah is on is one of the most promising ones I've read about. I'm praying that it will be effective and that Noah continues to respond well to it. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
Still praying for you guys and especially for sweet Noah. I hope that you all have a very blessed holiday season! Lots of love and prayers!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
Hey guys, we have been keeping up with Noah's progress as often as we can. Your family are in our prayers and we know that God will watch out for a Warrior like Noah. We wish the Crowe family happy hollidays and a Merry Christmas!Coach Tracy Malone, Kim, Reed and Tate
Thinking about you today & wondering how you are. Lots of love & prayers from our house. xoxo
Still praying for Noah and you. I haven't seen anything lately, so I guess no news is good news. LOL I would love an update when you have the time.Merry CHRISTmas !
I just wanted that here in KNoxville, TN.... Our clinic will be praying for him and keep him in our hearts!! I hope there is good news...
Thank you for the update. i have been wondering about Noah. I pray that all continues to go well.
Jessica, thanks for the update. I still look at this site everyday for any news, any new prayer requests. I am so thankful that Noah is not having those terrible side effects and that you are not having to live in B'ham so much.Randy and I are still praying for your family often. Wishing you a Blessed New Year!
I hope you all had a wonderful and restful holiday. Praying for you all! Kelly McBay Anderson
John David & JessicaBoth of you & Noah have been in my prayers daily. I pray for peace,love, and happiness for you all God will never leave us,through him all is possible. Love in Christ
John and Jessica, my heart breaks for you today. I've never met you or Noah, but I feel like a part of the family. I've come to love you all as I've read your blogs and followed Noah's story. I pray for him every day and for you both as you face this terrible enemy. I know that God is with you and I pray that He will embrace you today as you face the next challenges. God bless and keep you.Cindy Prince, Russellville, AL
I have been praying for you today. Just returned home and read the update...... the words "I am sorry" are so inadequate!!!! Praying for perseverance...... and peace. Paige Conway
I love the vodeo of Noah and his 4-wheeler. I pray for Noah and you guys. I am sorry for the MRI report you got today. Just a little note that your friend for Northwood Methodist is keep you in our prayers.
John and Jessica,I am SOO sorry!!! That is terrible news!! I pray the radiation is successful in killing the cancer.♥♥ Love ya!! ♥♥C.O.L.E.'s Foundation (Caring Openly, Loving Eternally)www.colesfoundation.com
John and Jessica~I am so sorry to hear this but am grateful that the radiation is available. I am praying for Noah and both of you as well.
Dear John,I wished I could read all 400+ comments. I read a few. If I can offer just a little bit of encouragement to you as a Christian, I wished I could take my own life if to save your sons. Jesus did that very thing for us all. We all have hope of our resurrection of eternity with Christ. I might not understand why God allows cancer to hurt so many people like your son, but I trust that the Lord has a reason for everything, a time and a place for it. Job said in the bible, "God gives life and he takes it away". Isaiah 57:1 says, "Good people pass away; the godly often die before their time...No one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil to come." God doesn't despise anyone; he loves us all the time! I also believe all Children belong to the Lord; your son is in His care so you have no worries. Don't lose heart, stay positive, and always say, "We must trust in the Lord". Stay faithful to God and his word. Thank Him always for everything no matter what. God bless you and yours.
God love this precious little angel. My heart is breaking for you and your family. Just remember that God is in control and he listens to prayers. Will be praying daily for his full recovery.
I feel like there are no words for me to express how sorry I am that you are having to go through this yet again. Also, no words I can say will ever come close to being enough. So, I'll just say I am sorry! I will continue to lift Nah and your family up in prayers. Begging Gog for healing!COLE Prayer Teamwww.colesfoundation.com
Prayers are with you guys!! Through Christ we gain our strength and wisdom! Noah is a beautiful baby boy!
The spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what to pray for, but the spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. Romans 8:26-28
I have been following your blog since last Fall when I began coming to Friendship on Wednesday evenings. Noah is an amazingly beautiful little boy. Your faith is such a blessing. I will continue to pray that God watch over Noah and your entire family. May He give you strength and courage. God Bless!Bridget Kelley
continued thoughts and prayers for you all. always remember PATIENT...POSITIVE...STRONG!! these words tend to get me through the day. may god bless each and everyone of u.
We are friends with Jody Hooven on facebook and saw the link. We are from Virginia. Just wanted to let you know that we will be praying for you all. May God give you the strength and peace you need.
My family has prayed for Noah since the beginning of this journey and will continue to do so. My little boys pray for him when they go to bed and when they wake up. I in awe over how strong your family is. I admire your courage and your faith. You have an amazing little boy and he has amazing parents. I love what you wrote, "What we do know is that we have today. That means - ice cream for lunch, cake for dinner, and whatever we can do to make us laugh."I wish you an eternity of ice-cream, cake and laughter!
John and Jessica, I went back and read the first day of this blog again yesterday. So sorry you have to go through all of this again. We want you to know and We are praying and how much we love you all.
We are praying for you little man!
No matter how big or small it is, if you need a helping hand during this, I would be honored for you to call. Praying.(Friendship Church)
Prayers sent from all over Houston in all my prayer chains. Jesus cradles him in his arms.
Jessica & John- You are living what we all as parents fear, the sickness of your child. I pray God gives you the strength to endure this challenge. I will also continue to pray for your sweet little boy, Noah. He is truly an inspiration to all. May the Lord bless you and keep you safe in this trying time of your lives.
You guys are amazing. The fact that hat you are able to stand firm in your faith and still be hopeful is an amazing testimony to your faith. I would like to think that I could do the same but I am not so sure. I am humbled and touched by the way that you two continue to walk with our Lord through the darkest of times which you have had to endure lately. I will continue to pray for sweet Noah and for his wonderful parents.
Just a note to let you know that I am praying for you. Stay strong, the bible says "all things work together for them that love the Lord".
My prayers are with you all everyday.
A friend posted your site on her facebook and I came to learn about & pray for Noah. Last year I walked a terrifying walk in the PICU with my child. The prayers of friends, family and total strangers brought us such comfort. I hope you feel how so many are holding your family in their hearts and prayers. Isaiah 43:1-4 became my daily meditation as we faced uncertainty. I will pray that Noah is healed and for strength for the two of you during these difficult days.
A friend of mine posted on facebook yesterday about your sweet son needing prayers for healing. I asked her to send me the link to this blog. I have been reading Noah's story this morning and even shared parts of it with my four children. We, as a family, are starting today lifting Noah up in prayer everyday. I have never met you personally but much love is being sent your way from our family. We are brothers and sisters in Christ. So with that, know we love you and are praying for your healing Noah. Strength to you parents and wisdom to the doctors and nurses attending to your sweet angel.
Praying for you guys and precious Noah!!!Love & Laughter,Mycha(Christine Yergert's sister)
Noah you are my hero!
Love ya'll!! Praying!!
Sent up prayers from The Gate yesterday at St. James UMC .
been following your story and prayin for your baby. Your faith and strength is amazing. My heart breaks for that little boy who has to go through all this. It's heartbreaking, but I pray that God will touch him and heal him.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Noah and your family every day.
Praying for little Noah!
Glad to read that you have a good place to live, while in The Ham! (I tried to make you sugar cookies to go with those special meals you have with Noah but they were awful- so I spared you that little gift) Praying for you all....
Dearest sweet precious Noah, so very sorry for all you and your family are going through right now. Trusting and believing the Lord to intervene as only He can and heal you completely inside out. May God shower down His love, mercy, goodness, grace, faithfulness, healing, compassion, comfort and peace every moment of the day and night.
Sending much love and hugs.

I am praying for you all. I really wish I had words to say that would help but I dont. I just trust in the lord and pray for you.
Your family is in our prayers daily and I praise God for the blessing your faith and courage are to so many!!!! We love you much and your example is powerful :)
Hello. Your cousin from Georgia here. I just watched the video and the most recent blogs. Noah and your entire family are in mine and my families prayers. You have a very special little boy. Love to all of you,Greg
Praying for Noah. Dr. Fiveash is Als radiooncologist. Al is in week 3 of 6. He is taking Temodar and Dsatinib chemo along with the radiation.
What a testimony Noah is going to have! We are praying for your family!
Hey Little Guy,
I know you must be confused right now. I was to.
You are an amazing child, and a beacon of light, everytime i see you, I can not help but to smile. I know you are young right now, and most likly dont understand what i am writing, but that is ok, one day you will be able to read these things written, and know that your Family Loves and cherishes you.
I can not fathom what this is like for a mother. I only know mine still asks about my annual scans. I know she was Terrified. I am greatly sorry for what you are going through, and I also pray for you everytime i talk to God. I wish i could over more than i have been able to.
I again cannot fathom what you are going through, and asking is a selfish act. I know the times are trying. But it has releived me to know you can still find reasons to smile every day. I pray for you and your family every time i talk to god. As individuals, and as a family.
You three played a huge part in me coming back to god. It may seem weird, due to the fact i was very "shy" in my first few months. But the way christ worked through you all, touched me deeply. I am blessed for knowing your family. I pray that Noah gets better, and beats this. I pray that you, Jess, and you, John, have the endurance to not give up, even in the darkest hours. If there is anything you need, even if it is an ear to listen, please, contact me. I will do my best to help in anyway i can.
So thankful for the Lord's provision and constant care for Noah and your sweet family.
Scott, the kids and I are beieving the Lord for Noah's healing and for all whose life this circumstance touches to BEHOLD the Lord's incredible Glory through this. Praying for maximum Grace in each moment!
I am praying for little Noah and his family. I just wanted your family to know that your little boy is so sweet, and I will pray for him and your family constantly! He is safe in Jesus Christ, and His angels are always with this precious child :)
Through a child people will get to see the absolute best in others....
It is such a testament of God's love and God in each of us when I read all the posts here on your blog. No matter what ugliness we see in people on the TV...here is an uplifting blessing for all of us as we get to see that man is not forsaken or all evil. God is good and He is still here. Thanks for sharing the blog with us and allowing us to see that. I also get to see the best in my sweet husband as every single night he takes my hand and prays with me...and ends the prayer with prayers for Jessica, John David and Noah.
Randy and I are praying for you, often. Thanks for keeping us posted through the blog. We continue to share Noah's story and ask for prayer.
It is so inspirational to see how you take it one day at a time. So happy that things went well for him today. Lots of love & prayers~
John, Jessica, We have a mutual friend Art and Bonnie Foster. They have shared with me Noah story and I just wanted you to know I am part of the Intercessory Pray Team for Heartsong Church and Noah is among our list of children and people to pray for. We meet tonight and I will give an update on him. We also have both of you in prayer also. I live in Cordova Tn. Are prayers are with you. He is a very handsome young man.
Your family has been on our prayer list at work for quite some time..I have been keeping up with Noah's story, and want you to know that you are such an inspiration. Reading your blogs is such a blessing.. I am praying for your family..
My family and friend are praying for Noah and his Mom and Dad - I went to high school with Sonya - she was just as sweet then as she is now - we hope you and your family are having a good day today and that little Noah feels better soon! He is a very handsome little boy, with a wonderful personality!
Praying for Noah and his mom and dad. Keep the Faith and know that people everywhere are praying for you family.
Noah has been on my mind for a long time.
I'm praying for a victory and praying for God's strength on Noah's parents.
Happy Birthday NOAH!!
I just watched some of Noah's videos. His sweet smile and loving spirit are truly inspirational !! Thank you little Noah for touching my heart & reminding me to work harder everyday. I'm praying for you and your family.
I just wanted you to know that I pull up this website and say a pray for Noah everyday. I learn of Noah through Keith and Ellen Davis. My husband and I have visited Friendship a couple of times.
I'm so encouraged with your faith and trust in God.
Hey Jess....When You said "Barber's" I knew immediately. I, too, was quite pleasantly surprised when we got there. I thought "ugh, blech" but it was interesting and neat to look at all the vehicles. When we were there, Porche was having a track day. How fun that would be! (we did look into it for my xmas present last year - over $1,000! no wonder we don't own a Porche! Just to play with one for a day is $1,000?!?)
Hang in there! love ya'll
My name is Jenna and I came across your site. U are a brave courageous fighter and a real inspiration. You are full of life, spunk, smiles, laughs, happiness, joy, courage, fight, bravery, and determination. U are in my thoughts and prayers. i was born with a rare life threatening disease. I love it when people sign my guestbook or send me an email.
You don't know us but we heard about you from Mitchell Mauldin. Our prayers are with you and your precious family
Hi Crowe family! I keep up with your blog and just wanted you to know how inspirational YOU ALL are. I attended friendship when I lived in Alabama and my mom and sister still do. I visit when i am in town. Its awesome to see that even through this trying time you all find reasons to smile and praise God. To me thats amazing and it makes me want to walk a healthier, more faithful road with God. Thank you so much for sharing your story. I know it has touched many lives. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers everyday. May God bless you all!
Psalm 112:7 "He will have no fear of bad news. His heart will be steadfast, trusting in the Lord."
You do not know me or my husband, but we have been reading your blog and praying for your family since the first blog post. We pray this scripture resonates with you until the next round of scans. We are petitioning our father for a good report.
Noah, You are an amazing and courageous little boy. I pray to our Savior that you continue to heal and will be free of this terrible disease. I will keep you and your parents close in prayer as you have your upcoming scans.
God Bless You!
Thanking God for the good report and praying and believing that Noah will be healed.
(Christine Yergert's sister)
Thanks so much for letting us do this for Noah I'm Robert (Ghost) and Candra (Sassy)'s daughter I was not there to meet Noah at CiCi's when yall met but I did get to see pics. He is sooooo adorable! I love the pics. My mom said that he was real shy. Can't wait to meet him next time:)
Have a great day,
Hey Jessica, John David, and my buddy Noah! I am so glad to hear that ya'll are enjoying a wonderful summer together! God is so good and answers prayers! I hope to see ya'll soon and hopefully Noah will have good memories of me not just the mean one that stuck him and took his blood! :) And as always *Praying for Noah* Heather
Praying hard for July 20th results.
I just love the pictures!!!! Lighthouse is such an awesome organization!!!
I pray for AWESOME news from Noah's MRI on Wed.
I pray God will give you peace as you wait!!
♥♥ Love ya!! ♥♥

We really enjoyed meeting your family this week at Lighthouse!! Noah's beautiful smile and sweet little face are precious. We will be thinking and praying for ALL of you as you continue on this journey.
The Babcock Family
(Andrew, Cory, Adam and Catherine)
Wow what beautiful beach pictures. I am so glad you have had a normal three months, and so relate to how rough that transition to normal can be at first even though it seems like it should feel amazing, and at times it does but it's still hard in its own way. Joel also has an MRI on July 20th. I have to wonder if God is at work in all the times Joel and Noah have MRIs on the same days since neither of them have MRIs that often but so many times they have been the same day. So, on Wednesday, when we are wishing that just one time we weren't so nervous, we'll be praying for your family and for peace that passes all understanding for you and for Noah. God has uniquely positioned you to be Noah's parents and I can tell that your faith and your grace bless his life.
Lots of Love,
Praying for your family, especially today, as Noah has his MRI.
Praying for good scan results. Your Noah is adorable and I am glad you had a chance to do the Lighthouse Retreat. I have read about it before and every family that experiences it always has such positive things come out of it.
Holding you all in my heart as today arrives....

Wonderful news about Noah's MRI! You are ALL in my prayers everynight. Continued prayers for every test that comes around and for remission. Love you all.
I have been praying for this. What wonderful news!!!!!! Praise the Lord!!
Praise God From Whom all Blessings Flow! You couldnt' have asked for better news than that! It sounds as if Noah is having a wonderful summer, and, it will only be better now that you have this wonderful news to digest. May you continue to feel His presence blessing you with peace, comfort, strength, and continued healing. God Bless.

Hi to Noah from Kristin and Julia, whom you met at the Lighthouse retreat. We just wanted you to know we are thrilled to see the news about your MRI and that we have been praying for you and your family! (Mom, I am the one who brought Noah back to you that last morning as we were saying "see you later" and Julia is my daughter, age 11, with a short hair-cut who ate the spaghetti and pudding in the talent show with Allie!) We will continue to pray and we send love!
I am your dad's first cousin . I have read all about Noah and we are praying for a complete healing for him .I am sending his story out to our church and family and believing in a miracle . May God bless your family and give you strength each day .
Thinking of you all as you near the time of another MRI. Praying that Noah will get a great report this time, also.
God bless each of you in your new home.
(mother of Michael and Lori Hobbs of Friendship Church in Athens, AL)
Say the link on facebook. Prayers coming from Florence.
God, I pray that you would eternally bless this family. I pray you would bless the doctors, bless the nurses, and bless, cure, and heal little Noah completely. It seems sometimes we have no idea why we are laid burdens and pains upon our shoulders. But God, he overcomes. He is the great healer. He is the one that will last throughout the storm, will raise up the hopeless, and who will endure forever and always. God bless this godly family, bless their little angel, Noah, and lay your hands on them all for your healing. My God, beat this. And may God, always be with your beautiful family. Jesus Bless.
I have been following Noah's story for a very long time. I am so sorry that the MRI results did not come back with good news. I will continue to pray for all of you and especially Noah. May God comfort you through this difficult time.
In Christian Love,
Central Church of Christ
So sorry to hear that the tumor is growing again. I will remember Noah and you all in my prayers. Praying for a miracle! God bless you all!
(mother of Michael Hobbs from Friendship church in Athens, AL)
You don't know me but I worked with Jana at Calhoun. I have been praying for your sweet little boy and for you and your husband. I am so sorry to hear that the tumor is growing but I will continue to pray for Noah's healing. I have a 9 month old daughter and I hope that if we ever face something like this I will have half of your strength. It is amazing what a mothers love can do so continue showering that little man in love. God bless you all!
We will continue praying . I know that our God still performs miracles and we are believing in one for Noah .Praying for Noah and all of his family .
Sarah Doggette Fountain
Hi. I know we dont personally know each other, but over the past few years I have read so many status updates from friends of mine on facebook asking for prayers for your very precious little boy. I started following this site right after you started it, and I still check on a regular basis to see how your little boy is doing. I saw in your last update where you said that you didnt know who was still reading it. Well, I know I am only one person, but I am still reading it, and I will continue to read it. My husband is military and we live in Wichita, KS. We attend Amazing Grace Baptist Church, and even though they dont know your little boy, they still ask me how he is doing because I shared his story so they could pray for him. I just wanted you to know that I as well as several people here in my area pray for your son frequently. I believe our God is a mighty God, and He can do anything. I also want you to know that because of you, my faith has gotten stronger. Watching you take your journey and still be able to give glory and thanks to God has been such an uplifting and amazing thing for me to see. My heart is broken for you because of your most recent news, and I will make sure to let my church know. I think the Lord has awesome plans for your little Noah, and I just wanted you to know that I will pray and pray and pray for you, Noah's doctors, and most importantly Noah. God Bless :)
I have just come across the story of this precious child. I was blessed with 2 healthy children who are all grown up now. I have a 3 year old precious grand daughter, who thankfully is a very happy healthy little girl. My heart breaks as I read Noah's story. It seems so unfair for a little one to have to go through so much. I sobbed as I watched the video. I pray for strength for Mommy and Daddy as you go through this with him. I have seen absolute miracles on my loved ones in my lifetime. And I pray that God would give this little one a miracle, that he could be healed, and grow to adulthood, where he could share his story and use it to lead many to Christ.
I am keeping up with Little Noah and his fight and pray every day for him and you, his loving parents. He is a miracle already, and so many prayers are being lifted up for the miracle of healing for him. He is part of everyone's heart. I hope he and all of you feel the love and compasion while you are on this journey.
I am praying. Lord, please let it be your will that Noah is healed completely. Amen. Lots of love from our family to yours.
i am Cindy. I am new to Noahs story. I have gone through his storyand feel a bond to him. Your blog is wonderful Thank you for sharing your precious child with us. My 12 children and 22 grandchildren will be praying. Many of my friends. Are also lifting him up in prayer. I am Tommy and Katherine Jones oldest daughter. Love and hugs Noah. You are loved by many many
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. God Bless.
C.O.L.E. Prayer Team
We have been looking for updates; not what we were praying for but Noah and your family have been in our prayers since you started on this journey. We will continue to pray and look for updates.
Praying for you guys!! All things are possible through Christ who strengthens you.
Noah, I'll pray for you little buddy. I just happened on upon your story. I know God will bless you in ways you can't possibly know today.
I have just gotten a clean bill of health myself from prostate cancer. I received a message from God that I was sick, that I would be okay, and that I needed to go to the doctor. I was blessed with peace and contentment, I felt the arms of our Lord around me the entire time. I had surgery on Oct 11th and am at home recouping. I believe that God has shown you, like he did me, great favor. I truly believe that we are chosen for adversity to prepare us for His work in the future. While that's not much consolation while you suffer or for to your family, it will surely bless you one day.
I will pray that God hold you in his arms and let you feel the peace that I have felt. I will pray for strength and endurance. Have faith, I know God will bless you.
I am a friend of Diane's. I've been praying for Noah for such a long time. However, I wanted you to know that I have now sent a prayer request out for Noah all over the world. There are people praying for Noah in Austrailia, UK, Malisha, South Africa, Canada, and all over the US - just too many countries to remember them all right now!!! God bless you and I pray He heals your precious baby!
hello, I've stumbled upon this web site, on a youtube link from WTWC... I can't imagine what you are going through. I also don't have words to explain wow my heart cries for you. You guys have been such a blessing in my life with the etwc albums, I just hope God can move you further in peace, hope and strength. Me and my family will remember you all, in our prayer. God bless you. (from Portugal with love) (I will return to see God's miracle praised in the words you long to write)
I am praying for you as you go for appt. tomorrow. May the Lord give you His strength and courage during this difficult time. God bless,
Jon David & Jessica,
Just wanted you to know your family is constantly in my prayers. This is another bump in the road. I understand hw bad you hate his tumor. Just remember God's plan is bigger than ours. He knows the future. Jeremiah 29:11. We still have Noah on our prayer list at Lindsay Lane. Love and prayers going up for all of you.
We love you!!Praying!
Praying for Noah and your family. Saw Noah on Pinterest.com. I am praying for his healing and great health for him from then on.
I am still praying for you guys and Noah everyday
May the Lord bless you and keep you safe xx
John & Family,
I am not sure if you remember us or not but we are Ashley Darby's parents. Tara, Ashley's sister has kept up with your precious Noah and also has kept us informed of his progress. We have been and are still praying for him and for you guys. I can't imagine how hard it is on you and your wife, but I do know that God is still in control no matter what. Always remember that little Noah has a very special Angel watching over him.
Much Love, The Darby's
I didn't have the opportunity to get to know all 3 of you well before God led you to a new ministry, but you are my family and I pray for you daily. I don't have magic answers nor do I know what the future holds for the three of you, but I do know the One who does and I believe in miracles. The greatest miracle is the on of Perseverance, where we can be strong and God dependent on whatever we are going thru. All of you have and are experiencing that miracle. Never give up, we don't know the outcome of this trial but we'll always know the absolute surety of God's presence and of His Love, His strength and the Peace that only He can give. God Bless all of You. In Christ's Love, Terri
Dear Noah and noahs family,
What you all are going through is not easy, i know this because one of my friends had a brain tumor. All you can do is pray, and cherish every single moment you can! My prayers are most deffinatley with you guys
As I listen to 'Incredible You' and read your latest blog, I am humbled beyond time and words. You break my heart open to a compassion that is the compassion of Holy spaces, not recognized by many in this world. Because of your witness and your love for Christ, I get a glimpse of the Love we will know in Heaven's spaces...God Bless you ALL. My prayers are lifted up.
Praying everyday for Noah's healing.
JDC, Jess & Noah-My heart continues to break while I keep believing for healing & peace amongst your situation. Your willingness, perseverance & aggressive stance is a testament to others of the power of prayer & how strong your belief is. Thank you for standing firm in what you believe in & not wavering under the circumstances of what you see or how you feel. Sending you love & support always.
Thinking of you all and praying for peace. I wish there was something more I could do for you.
Jehovah Rapha - the Lord our healer. 26 years ago my husband and I were in your shoes. the neurosurgeon at uab gave our son 6 weeks to live. his brain tumor was next to his brain stem. he was 6 years old. today he is 33 and lives on his own. God is still in control. Praying for God to answer prayers for healing. Love & blessings to you and your family.
praying for your family.
I too am praying for Noah. God is being glorified by the faith you have shown through this awful trial.
Praying for you Noah, and your family.
We are praying for all three of you and for Noah's doctors. Love to you all.
John David and Jessica,
Though you do not know me I am a member of First United Methodist in Athens and have been keeping up with precious Noah for a while now. I am actually in Nursing School at UAB now and live in Birmingham. If there is anything I can do for you please don't hesitate to let me know. I would be glad to help in any way possible.

I had not heard of you all and your struggle until today on the website OLMM. But I have been reading your blog and am so inspired by the things you have been going through. I will continue to pray for your child and you two, alos doctors and nurses. Jesus is truly the Healer of all. God bless you and yours.
I am continuing to think about you and pray for you. I know you're going through a lot of bad stuff. You seem like a really strong boy and I'm sure you can tough through it. Keep your smile going. I know God will bless you.
I see you're a Curious George fan. My grandson Trey is too. He'd like your Curious George shirt. He has one that's red.
Lots of people, like me, found your website by accident. They are all praying for you, in addition to all your family. I will ask my Sunday school class to pray for you too. Remember, no matter what, God loves you!
Prayers for Noah were mentioned in my sunday school class in Huntsville almost two years ago, although none of us knew him. I have followed your blog off and on during your journey. The upcoming St. Jude's walk prompted me to look you up again about three weeks ago and we are now praying diligently.
Praying for Noah.
I read your post today, I could hear your heart Jessica.
My prayer of late has been that God would give those of us praying for Noah the faith of at least a tiny mustard seed. Love you sweet Jess. Praying for Noah and your family during this time and for healing powers. If the mountain can be moved, so can the prayers be heard.
Praying for you all to have a restful nights sleep. And for earthly healing for Noah.
(Christine Yergert's sister)
I have been keeping up with your blog and love to get a chance to take care of you guys when you are here. Nick and I as well as Mark and Nadine have been praying for you all. Your faith in the Lord is encouraging to so many. We will continue to pray for Noah and you guys.
Hi, im the girl you talked to at target today. Your little boy was so sweet and well-behaved. It just broke my heart when you told me he had brain cancer. I have a two-year old son and couldnt imagine going through what your going through. I admire your strength and courage. Im praying for your entire family. And hopefully our icee machine will be fixed the next time you come in. lol. Free blue one on me. :)
Hey, John David and Jessica. Continuing to follow your journey with Noah, and praying for all of you. I wish I had some incredibly wise words of wisdom to offer, or some brilliant spiritual insight, but right now I'm all out of both. Thank you for your honesty and transparency-it helps me know how to pray for you, and blesses me and encourages my walk with Christ. Please don't edit anything out! Please know that we love you all and are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.
Please know that my prayer partners and I are praying for the Crowe family. Your blogs are such a warm testimony that touch my heart deeply. Thank you for sharing this journey.
John David, Jessica, and Noah,
I do not know your family, but you guys have touched my heart! I am praying for wisdom and faith and of course healing for Noah and for you all!
Misty and Chandler
John David,Jessica & Noah,I am praying with you always.
John and Jessica,
I have been following your blog since the beginning but havent always known what to say. You guys are never far from my thoughts and always in my prayers.
John David and Jessica,
It is so difficult to know what to say to comfort you both as you go through this. You are such an inspiration to others in the faithful way you have travelled this road. Know that you are all loved - even by those you don't know personally. We will continue praying for Noah's healing and comfort, and for wisdom of the doctors caring for him. Praying also that the Lord meets whatever needs you have.
In God's Love,
Please know that my heart bleeds for you and my prayers are with you.
John David, Jessica, and Noah, our thoughts and prayers are with you! Your faith is so amazing and such an inspiration to all of us. God Bless you all! (Jeff Haddock's Mom)
Hey John, I am so sorry to hear about your son, this is so sad. I will be praying for your family I love you bro!!
You three are constantly in our prayers and have been. We talk about you and think about you daily. There are thousands who are pulling for you guys and sending up prayers often. During this we have bonded, unknowingly, with many and even people in the grocery are aware of what is going on and will start up a conversation about precious Noah. We may not talk to you that often, but we are there for you guys, we love you three, and I stand in for all the Grand Parents also, I can only imagine how they feel sometimes. We thank our Heavenly Father for being there for you and for hearing our prayers for you. What would life be if we had to do without that blessing even one week! Nothing but Love to ya. xxoo
John David and Jessica,
May God wrap his loving arms around you during this unimaginable time. May God keep Noah comfortable, help the doctors to do their best to remove this cancer from his body. Continually praying for you all.
In Christian love,

Dearest sweet precious Noah, thinking of you and your wonderful family as you are walking through a difficult time. Asking, trusting and believing in God's loving sovereignty over your very valuable life. May the Lord abundantly shower down His love, mercy, grace, healing, comfort, goodness, encouragement, wisdom and calming peace during this storm.
Sending much love and hugs.
Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.

I will be saying a prayer for Noah tonight and every night until he's home....
Praying for your family during this difficult time. In Isaiah 26:3 the Lord promises perfect peace to those who put their trust in Him, which is very evident from your blog.
Little Rock, AR
Jess, John, and Noah - my heart breaks as I read over your recent blog entries. And as I know that my personal delimias are tiny as compared to your convictions and circunstances, but I would like to share something small with you. As I took my issues to God yesterday morning during alter-call, God gave our pastor scripture that lifted my internal burden and allowed me to give it to Him to bare. 'For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favor is life:weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.' Psalm 30:5
I'm sorry that I don't send you messages more often, but I (and my family) send prayers to God for Noah and both of you many times throughout our day. It has only been a month since the benefit ride for Noah and I smile everytime I think of him fearlessly jumping in the bounce-house, and laughing so loudly when he sat on the motorcycle and made it roar.
As much as we all want to keep our loved ones here on Earth with us; we must put our faith in God to see us through our trials because if He chooses to take them home - our loved ones are with Jesus preparing our home and waiting for us to join them. Whatever you both choose - I know that you will let God lead your hearts to make the best decision for Noah. As you said, Jess, we all should be thankful for everything that God has given us because through Christ we are saved. He will never put more on us than we can bare, and even if I say so myself - I think you both have done a wonderful job by keeping your eyes on Jesus and thanking Him for the precious son that you have, and I whole hearted believe that whatever God has in store for you and Noah - God will bless you for witnessing to so many people and praising the Lord for the good times and the not so good times. By keeping your eyes up toward heaven, you are teaching Noah and everyone that reads this website that Jesus is Lord of lords and God will see us through to the end, all the way to the streets of gold and no more hospitals. God bless you all.....
What a handsome little man you have. Your faith is inspiring and you have our prayers. May you feel God's peace each day.
John and Jessica,
Please know that you are covered in prayer. May you feel and know the undeniable peace that only God can give. I bless Noah with joy, strenth, and peace. May you find comfort and strength through the amazing love of Christ. God will be faithful to guide you and give you soundness of mind about any decision you face.
If you all need anything, please let me know.
And, have a blast at Disney! I know the Lord will bless your trip and give you a wonderful experience together as a family.
Love and blessings,
We continue to pray for you little buddy. Your smile and the faith of your Mother inspire me every day. Her words during this most difficult time bring comfort to me and so many more. She is a light shining God's love. My life is better for knowing you, if only through your website.
I hope you feel the Peace of the Lord. We are praying for you.
Today I cried with you as I contemplated the weight you and John are asked to carry. And then you encouraged me by being real and feeling weak, but strengthened by God's word and promises. I'm lifting Noah, John and you up and prays. Praying for lots of giggles in Disneyland for you all.
Matt 11:28-30 NIV
Praying for Noah! Hope You and Noah have a fabulous time in Disnyworld, one of the most fun places in the world.
Many prayers for your family.
We are thinking about you all and praying for Noah and the decisions you will have to make in the very near future. Keep God as your focus.
Chase and I have been praying for you guys...especially following the events of Wednesday evening/afternoon. We praying for peace and rest for the two of you and for Noah's upcoming Disney adventure. Although we haven't known you both for very long, words cannot express how moved we are by the strength of your faith and commitment. I will pray for your parental decisions and that you can experience some laughter and joy at Disney.
Praying for Noah - Mom & Dad too
out in Oregon
I am catching up on the full blogs- I follow the information on Facebook as well and Noah is ALWAYS in my prayers! I was reading Tueday 11/15 and wow did you encourage my heart and help me as a mother with your discussion about God as a parent sometimes has to say no just as we as parents must make the tough decisions for our kids that they do not understand. As I am just getting into the "teen" years with my oldest, this has been ever present in my struggles with them. And you explained better than I could have put together in my head. Noah's battle has touched this mom in a profound way! Thank you for that! I will continue to pray for him and for his healing on earth, that God will give Noah a yes! But oh what a blessing that your family has the gift of knowing the Lord and knowing that this is a temporary home for us all and in God's kingdom is eternal life without suffering.
One more thing I want to share. This is a prayer that was posted by a mother who was in a similar situation with her child battling cancer. I think it is a prayer that we can all use, especially when we may not be able to come up with the words..of course even without words God knows our prayers and requests even as they are groins and moans. This though I think is a good prayer, especially as you face the hardest decision of your life at this moment. I will be in prayer for your decisions and for the Doctors to find wisdom in treating Noah.
" Heavenly Father, I release to You the burdens that I have been carrying, burdens that You never intended for me to carry. I cast all my cares upon You - all my worries, all my fears. You have told me not to be anxious about anything, but rather to bring everything to You in prayer with thankfulness.
Father, calm my restless spirit, quiet my anxious heart, still my troubling thoughts with the assurance that You are in control. I let go of my grip upon the things I have been hanging onto, with opened hands I come to You. I release to Your will all that I am trying to manipulate; I release to Your authority all that I am trying to control; I release to Your timing all that I have been striving to make happen.
I thank You for Your promise to sustain me, preserve me, and guard all that I have entrusted to Your keeping. Protect my heart and mind with Your peace, the peace that passes all understanding. Father, may Your will be done in my life, in Your time, and in Your way. ---Amen
Our prayer group has been following Noah's progress for some time now. We are fervently praying for a miracle. I can only imagine what you are going through but through it all you remain a shining light for Christ. What a witness! I know that God can heal him and that's my prayer.
If there is ANYTHING our group can do, we are here. We would love to do something special for Noah.
praying for u all
I read in one of your blog posts that many people know you and the ones that claim Jesus Christ as their Savior-you guys are family as well. Well, I claim the Jesus is my Savior. God is so good and so kind that He has blessed another soul to begin praying for you guys and for Noah. I was told about your son's challenges some time ago, but God put it on my heart to read and pray more. I know that God is still in the saving business because He just saved me from cancer. I just want to encourage you both that God is always near. He will never leave you. I noticed that you all have posted one of my favorite verses (Romans 8:28) and I pray that you keep it close to your hearts. Another one that I wish to send to you guys is Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." NIV. God loves you John David, Jessica, and Noah. So do I. Keep looking to the hills from which cometh your help, because your help comes from the Lord. And I will pass it on...Praying for Noah. :)
Jessica and John David, Thank you so much for posting updates on your blog. Your willingness to be transparent in sharing your story and emotions allows God to be shown through you. I praise God for you both!
Continuing to pray in agreement with your own prayers.
I do not know you all, but I am so thankful to have been led to Noah's blog through Kathy Threatt. What a beautiful child who is so very strong and precious. I will pray for your family and for your child. May peace be unto all of you during this Christmas season. Much Christian love to you all! Salle
Your son has captured my heart. It's incredible how much strength can lay in such a little guy. I am praying for your family and can't wait to hear how fun Disney was!
Saw a prayer request for sweet Noah on Kelly's Korner Blog. I will keep Noah, John David, and Jessica all in my prayers. May God bless you all so much.
The pictures from Disney look like you had a blast. I know you have difficult days and decisions ahead. I pray that God will shower you and your parents with peace.
My name is Jenna and I came across your site. U are a beautiful, precious gift, and special earthly angel. U are a courageous, strong and determined fighter. U are a brave warrior, smilen champ and an inspirational hero. U will be in my thoughts and prayers. I love it when people sign my guestbook. http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/champ291
I hope you had a great time visiting us at Cinderella's Castle, we loved having you. Remember to write me a letter or draw me a picture with your 'star wars' pen i gave you. I want to hear from you soon. You'll be in my prayers and in all of our hearts forever.
I heard your about Noah and your blog from my friend and photographer, Faith Blessing. I was so touched by your story and I am praying for your family!! In Christian Love, Kelly Brown
We are praying for your sweet Noah and for your whole family. God's light shines through you. Thank you for sharing your precious son's story.
Noah looks like Huck Finn in his straw hat. God has been teaching me this week in Paul's letters when I was feeling unworthy.
1 Thessalonians 5:10 (NIV)
10) He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him.
2 Corinthians 5:8 NIV)
8) We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.
Philippians 1:23 NIV)
23) I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far;
Praying for Noah (and Mom & Dad) in Oregon.
Continuing to lift your family up to the Lord in prayer. Noah is such a brave little boy! I love seeing all the Disney pictures. Thanks for sharing. God Bless You all this Christmas!
last year, I met a lady who was asking for donations from local businesses for a charity event to help raise money for Noah. I had seen and heard about Noah, but did not know the full extent of his battle. I donated a gift certificate and told the lady I would certainly add Noah to my prayers. Today, a dear friend of mine posted the website link and prayer request to her facebook page and I began reading. Normally, I would be in tears and fear for your son's life, but such peace and assurance surrounds me because of your faith in God, your love for your son, and your service to Christ, our Father. I will continue to pray for each of you and know that you are surrounded in love from strangers, friends and our Heavenly Father above. May the peace and joy of the holiday season continue to fill your hearts and home.
Lots of love and prayersfor your family from ours!
Marco, Christy, Walker, & Hunter
I have been following Noah's story for a long time. We have a prayer chain at work, and we are given updates and we pray for him. What a sweet little boy! And what a smile! Just looking at him makes me smile. I pray for the best possible outcome. I hope everything works out.
John David, Jessica, and Noah...
Oh Lord, bless this family, indeed. I pray that their territory be increased and that you would keep them from evil, so that they may not cause harm. (Prayer of Jabez)
I want you three to know that you are an inspiration to so so many. It is both heart-breaking and awe inspiring to see how much God is using your faithfulness to in-turn use your family, and your story as such a drastic and powerful vessel for his glory. Our lives are but a blip on this earth, and then we will (as believers) all be together 'forever' in heaven. I pray that Noah's little body be healed in the name of Jesus, and I pray this prayer, simultaneously alongside the other prayer warriors banging on the gates of heaven. I know that God hears every one of our prayers for all three of you. I pray that God will use your story, just like the "Heaven is for Real" story, to reach across the town, state, and nation, to penetrate the hearts and souls of people who may not have otherwise known him. Each of our stories are being written, and I pray that God smiles on my life and in my walk of faith and in my bold relationship with him, as you have boldly portrayed publicly for others to see. May He truly bless each of you, individually, as well as collectively as a family. And I ultimately pray that you remain faithful and blessed, as He has boldly chosen you as well, to use your life(s) as a testimony for Him to be able to reach further than you may have been able to reach alone without this painful circumstance. I love you my brother and sister and I pray for strength, humility, love, & faithfulness to the One that has both brought you to this storm, and who promises to bring you through it.
Praying for you!
He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.
I pray for you every day. I'm asking anyone who will listen to pray for you. I pray for a miracle. I pray for peace. God surely has great plans for such a fine boy.
We get updates about Noah every week from the folks at Harvest Pointe UMC. I mention Noah in my Prayer each morning. And I think of you, the parents also. We had three little girls many years ago. One of them has passed on. We had a near death experience with the little one when she was three months old. But nothing of what you've enduring. God bless all of you.
Have been waiting on an update, Now I can pray specifically for the neurosurgeon, the OR team and everyone involved in Noah's surgery. Most of all I will be praying for you and Jessica. This was not an easy decision to make, and I know how much you sought God for the answer. May God bless and keep you in His care. Merry Christmas.
It was nice to finally meet you at the party Monday. Thank you for this update. I continue to pray for Noah and for the two of you and your families.
We are lifting you all up in prayer! I hope and pray that Noah does well until Jan 3rd and that he does wonderful through the surgery. May God bless you all!
We are praying for your precious son, for your family, for his doctors, and for a miracle. May God bless you all.
Praying for all of the specific prayers that you have asked us to pray for! Me and my whole family will be 'storming heaven' asking for a miracle for you and your family!
Thank you for keeping all of us updated....
Jessica, I haven't posted here in a long time but have followed Noah's story all along. Please know that you all remain in my prayers. Remember that "the angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and delivers them." (Psalm 34:7)
just said a prayer for Noah and your whole familly. God Bless you all
Praying for your precious Noah, your family and the doctors and nurses that will perform the surgery. I pray that y'all have a Merry Christmas, enjoy your time and rest for the up coming battle.
Praying hard for a miracle for sweet Noah and will certainly being praying for your specific requests for the next two weeks. I hope you all do have a wonderful Christmas. God Bless
Praying for a miracle for your family. I've followed your blog for several years & have seen such an amazing example of what faith is. I don't know you but I love your precious son............Merry Christmas
Thanks for the new updates. We continue to pray for you all!! If you need help moving PLEASE let me know. I have a truck and 2 teenage boys that can be put to work! Love, Becca and Dianne
Just want you to know I am praying for all three of you. Thank you for the updates and your transparency. Also praying for the requests you mentioned. May you have a very blessed Christmas with Noah.
Praying for sweet Noah - and you guys - tonight!
(Christine Yergert's sister)
will be in continous prayer for Noah and your family. God is still in control. This is a bend in the road. May God bless and keep you in His care. May He give you the wisdom you ask for, and answers for the questions you ask. Love and Blessing
My heart was touched tonight~Praying so hard for your family and precious boy. I am a mother of a 2 and 7 year old little boy. I guess that's why I am even more sensitive to this situation. Praying! Praying! I posted a prayer request on FB on Hartselle Church of Christ page for even more prayers. God bless!
I am happy to read a story of determined people. Noah's case will make your family stronger, and closer than before. Wishing you the best.
Dear John David and Jessica,
Thank you so much for sharing your little boy with us. I'm praying for healing for Noah because I believe in miracles. You see in 1985 my 18 year old sister was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. According to the doctors, she was not supposed to live. There were times during her illness that we only had hope to go on. My family was not close to God but there were others who were calling out to the Lord for us. Even people who did'n know us were praying! The doctors kept giving her timelines. But thankfully God doesn't operate on a timeline and he had other plans for her life. We were also told that because of the amount of radiation she had to be given, that if she did live, she would never have children. My sister went on to gain a complete recovery, got married, and has two beautiful (nearly grown) children. If it had not been for this challenge that my family faced, who knows where I might have ended up. It was a long hard road but looking back now, I see that God carried us through it.
Thank you for being so strong in your faith. I ask God for complete healing for Noah, strength for you as parents and for wisdom and guidance for the doctors and nurses who take care of Noah. Your Christian sister, Melinda
Just wanted to know that I have read about your family's journey through all of this with your son. Cannot attempt to know or understand all that ya'll have gone through. Will be praying for Noah and you both.
John and Jessica,
I can't begin to imagine what you are experiencing. I have wanted to write you so many times, but I am always at a loss for words. I am amazed by your faith, when I am unsure how I would handle being in your circumstances. We pray for Noah and both of you. Thank you for keeping us updated. Praying.
Storming heaven with prayers and spreading Noah's story!
Love to you all!
Praying for God's healing hands and wisdom be among Noah, your family, and the doctors during this latest trial. I know God's hears those that bow before Him and come to Him in earnestness, and I know His will be done.
Praying for all of you during this difficult time. Your faith is an amazing testimony for all.
Sending lots of prayers Noah to you and your family.
C.O.L.E. Prayer Team, www.colesfoundation.com
I am praying for Noah and you.
A mutual friend told me of your little angel Noah and I wanted to let you know that I am lifting him and your whole family up to God. He is the great healer and physician and will definitely hold you all close at this time. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers daily. Sending you lots of love and prayers from my family to yours.
John I had no idea your family was going through this. One of my facebook friends posted your wife's blog address and I noticed your name. I am so sorry. Your little Noah is adorable. You were so sweet to us when Rick was sick. It left quite the impression on me. Now I will pray for your family. God is able to take care of all we face. Love and prayers, Mary (Tober)
We are praying for Noah constantly. Today I have mentioned it to others that I know will begin praying for him. Keep the faith.
Friends of Kerry in Paragould,
Kerry Combs and family
God gives us miracles everyday!!! I am praying for Noah and your whole family!!! Thank you for sharing your story, faith, and hope it is a true inspiration for all.
John and Jessica, God has given Noah two great warriors, you, equipped with faith and the promise of God. That little man must have great things to do for God, to be so thwarted by the devil. I pray that your faith stays strong, your peace passes understanding, and that this coming year brings you joy unspeakable...
May God's mighty hand and His blessings be on Noah, Mom & Dad- still praying for your family out in Oregon. God has blessed you with a mighty faith. Will be praying God picks you all up and carries you in His loving arms through this next surgery.
John & Jessica. I have been following Noah's story from the very beginning. I keep up with it daily. Candra is my cousin, and she is reason I started following. I want you to know, that your story is very inspiring. I pray for your family daily, and have faith that God is in control.
John, Jessica and Noah,
You guys are all fighters. Praying really hard for all three of you.
My adult daughter (36 yrs) has had a malignant brain tumor. She had surgery to remove it in May 2010. She is doing much better now but there is always the apprehension of it coming back and the doctors say it will. Through her ordeal is how I have heard about Noah. Please know that you have a lot of prayer warriors here in north Alabama. Our GOD is bigger than anything and HE is in charge. Praying for all of you.
Glad to hear you are home! Praying and believing for a miracle for sweet Noah!!!
(Christine Yergert's sister)
Praising God that you all get to go home for some rest. We will be lifting you all up today and especially on the 3rd when Noah has his successful surgery to remove the beast of cancer for his miracle healing in God's holy name. Amen!
Praying for Noah...
Our church is praying for Noah. We join our faith with yours for a miracle. We believe in a God who is capable of Healing.
Hello, My son John is going out with Sarah. She is Joels Aunt. I just wanted to let you know that I will be praying for your son Noah. Know that you are never alone during times of hardship. There are so many people that will be praying for your family. May God give you peace and rest during this very difficult time and shine His healing light on you all. Love and Light. Peggy Reinwald
Hi.. Just letting you know that I am also supporting you in prayer for your son Noah. I have been praying for Joel for some time now ..and felt to come on board with Noah. There will no doubt be lots of us silent prayer partners standing with you .. but thought i'd just let you know xxx Belinda :0)
Your words are an inspiration to all who read Noah's story. Keep the faith, God is working through you and in you. I am praying for a miracle on January 3rd. I am praying for peace and strength until then. Know that thousands of people are praying for you.
Jess and John David,
I pray God will move in a mighty way and work through the surgeons and medical staff to completely remove the tumor. I pray there will be NO complications and Noah will retain all of his abilities!!! I pray there will be NO more growth once this is removed!!!
WOW- I just stumbled onto Christopher Higginbotham comment on this fb about this page and I was like WHAT? I had heard mumblings at church about people praying for Noah and y'all but I had NO IDEA. I know now and plan to become a power prayer for Noah and your family! cancer touched my life almost 10 yrds ago and honestly, it has been a blessing but it is a BEAST that God can destroy and I pray with all my heart He does so for Noah and his brain! Our Father God is in this fight and He is going to be in it for the long haul- KNOW I am faithful in prayer and plan to focus all my energy and my friends and families energies into prayer for healing for Noah! Strength for you and your wife, Jessica and a peace that surpasses all understanding! God Bless you and may 2012 bring a powerful miracle for Noah and a witness for God's healing powers for YEARS to come. If I can do anything . . .
Just read your last post and all I can say is "Amen". Have been praying for you all for a while, and also following your story. Bottom line is God is in control. You all are amazing. Love and prayers coming your way. Aloha, Debbie
Heard about little Noah through Joel Green's blog and want you to know that we will be praying for Noah and for you both as you come to yet another 'cross over' time but be confident in your God that He sees both sides of your sea and has the advantage of seeing right where you are going to be crossing through this 'sea' - God will make a way where there seems to be no way! Having done all - stand! fully equipped and guarded by your loving Heavenly Father.
Love your declaration of faith and confidence and know that the heavens are being bombarded on your behalf. Cherie, an Aussie living in Canada:)
I just wanted you to know our family is following you and praying for you on this journey. I cannot possibly imagine the emotions of the situation and therefore can offer no comfort or advice...but know that we are sharing your pain and frustrations and praying for your little man. I hope that at least is of some comfort. Your outlook and attitude are amazing and inspiring. Your faith is stronger in the midst of hell than most people's is in the midst of celebration. I admire your strength and pray that God rewards you HUGELY for your unwavering confidence in Him. We may be all but strangers, but we love you guys! Such a blessing to be impacted by your faith.
Praying for Noah and both of you! I live in Athens but work in Decatur at GE. My co-worker cut out Noah's picture from a magazine that was advertising a trail ride fundraiser and taped it to her work station and began praying for him. One month later, she found out that her husband had brain cancer...he lived 3 months. But he accepted Christ before he died!!! The two of you and Noah are having a great impact on people that only Heaven knows!!
Just wanted you to know the Williams family is praying for little Noah and you his parents. I admire your courage and your faith, i am a cancer survivor of 28 years, I pray that God will touch Noah and heal his body completely, that the tumour would shrink and all cancerous cells would be gone. In Jesus Name, nothing shall be impossible. God be with you ! And the prayer of faith shall save the sick and the Lord shall raise him up. Amen !
So happy that you were able to get some AMAZING pictures of your family!! What a wonderful photographer!! Thank you for sharing them with all of us!
Have written down your specific prayers for Noah and will be praying now and throughout his surgery!
You are an amazing witness for me personally, and I thank you and God for that blessing!
Noah has already changed the world, but, I agree that, if His will is to completely cure Noah, what an amazing gift his life would be for the entire world!!!
Love and prayers and hugs!!
I love the family portraits, you have such a beautiful family. As I read your post written on Dec.30 I cried & prayed for you. You are such a wonderful example of a believer in God & though you are going through so much you are helping me in my life. Thank you for sharing your life & your faith with me. Even though I don't know you I love you in God's way........Mary
I came across your story/website a couple of weeks ago when a Facebook friend posted it. As a fellow YM wife who's expecting a little boy, I wanted to let you know that I am praying hard for you. Not only that they would get all of the tumor while maintaining the "Noah you love," but that He would truely show-out and it would just be gone when they do the MRI!
Jessica and John David, we are praying with all our hearts for God's blessings for Noah's full recovery. We know the Angels will take charge over this precious little boy and will enfold you both with God's peace and love. HE never leaves us. HE will be with all the medical staff who are entrusted with Noah's body. We are following all the updates and will be thankful for the good news on Tuesday! Be of good courage. Our love to you, Jessica and JohnDavid
Noah, my boys (Houston - 2, Will - 3) and I pray for you every night before bed time. We pray for a blessing, a miracle, healing, courage, & strength.
Jessica & John David, we also pray for yall every night. We pray for you to have strength, courage, & for your faith to be unwavering.
God bless yall
My prayers for Noah,and his family today. <3
Many prayers going up for your family today as well as those charged with Noah's care. We love you guys!!
I work for Jim Rutherford's wife, Sheila. Jim is the uncle to Amy Green. I saw Noah's blog on Facebook. I will definitely be praying for you guys today. I was diagnosed in February, 2010 with brain cancer, so I have an understanding of the disease. God does perform miracles. I should not be working full-time or functioning fully, but I am. I actually have a hole in my left cerebellum the size of an egg and should not be walking and talking, but here I am...able to do just about everything I always did. God is good, and I'm praying for miracles for Noah and your family.
Have been storming heaven with your specific prayers! All my FB peeps are too :)
Thank you for taking the time to update us today!
Praying for His "YES"!!
God is Good! Praying for peace for all of you and for guidance to the doctors and staff performing the surgery this morning. He is the Great Physician.
I am Amy Greens Cousin. I heard about Noah through her blog and posted a link onto my facebook for Noah and your family- so you now have a great family of Oklahoma Christians praying for you guys! A song that is going through my head today is Give me stregnth (elevation worship) some of my favorite lyrics read
"I may be weak, but your spirits strong in me, my flesh may fail ohhh but my god you never will"
It remind me that through our down times...our sickness...our pain...our worries-God is strong, God is healer and he NEVER fails. Your son has grabbed my heart. Your faith has moved me. I had an opportunity this morning with my daughter Ryily (who is also 3) to talk about Noah, to speak to her about God and pray for him. She spoke words of healing and love for Noah and I wanted to let you know we love you guys and will continue to be faithful along side your family in complete trust with God.
Praying for all of you today! Especially Noah and the drs and nurses who are taking care of him today. Praying God is wrapping you in His arms and providing the comfort only He can give!! Your little boy is such an encouragement to me as are you and your family!
Praying so hard for you all!! Praying for a miracle for your sweet boy. May God give you peace with his good & perfect will.
Praying, praying, praying for your sweet boy and your whole family. Believing God will work a miracle!
Praying for you all! May God's healing touch be with your surgeon and their assistants this morning is my prayer. God bless you!
Doris Hobbs (mother of Michael Hobbs of Athens, AL)
I read your story, and praying for you through my tears this morning. I do not know you, but am so moved by this story. There are some storms only God can calm. Peace to you today.
I'm praying for sweet Noah and his family. Jesus will care for him and protect this darling boy. I know it.
I love you John David!!!!! Praying for yall all the time!
I do not know your family and received the email this morning about your precious little boy and I am praying for everyone. I hope Noah will pull through!!
Jessica and John,
I have come to learn of Noah's journey from a connected page "Pray for Luke" on facebook. I am many miles away in upstate New York but feel very close to you in reading your story. Noah is a beautiful little boy, clearly deserving of all the love you have showered him with. The pictures speak volumes for the type of parents you are. Noah is a lucky little guy to have you both. My prayers for a successful surgery this morning and for the days to come. As a mom, I struggle to comprehend the magnitude of what you must be feeling. Please know I pray for you both that you may find strength and comfort in each other and those who love you all. Peace,
Praying for Gods peace and comfort for every one involved. I look at Noah and see so much of my little one in his personality. Last night we also prayed for your family and we have talked a little about Noah so our sons prayer was when the doctors were done that he could run and jump and just play again soon. Thru the eyes of a 4yr old.
part 3; Romans 8:18-39
Thinking of and praying for Noah and you guys this morning, Will be praying for you all today. Much love in Christ.
I've been praying for Noah and his wonderful parents for quite sometime now and will certainly continue. Praying for a miracle from our gracious God. May you all be filled with peace that only comes from our Lord Jesus.
Praying for Noah! Psalm 91! God's protection is holding you all today!
Praying really hard for a miracle for Noah today.
Praising God for his miracles of mercy today. We are continuing to be in prayer for God to bless Noah's recovery and bring courage and Peace to you and family to stay the course in God's trust. Such a loving God - awesome!!
I am just coming across your page and as I watched your video my eyes filled with tears. I have gone through many of my own experience with my son, Jackson 22 mos. and you will ALL be in my prayers! May the God of all comfort and peace continue to surround you!
So happy for you and thankful for how God has already blessed, Continuing to pray :)
Praise God!! So glad to hear that Noah has come through his surgery and is doing well. You all continue to be in our hearts and prayers.
PPraying for little Noah and for you also. I have been following Noah's journey for awhile. He is a precious little boy.
Sending only the best wishes to Noah! What a brave little guy...Lots of love to all who care and love him as well.
We are praying for Noah and his family. Please keep your spirits as high as you can during this unbelievable hard time. Lots of prayers from Mississippi.

God is AWESOME! I heard good tidings of great JOY today in the blog about his recovery! God is good all the time and all the time . . God IS GOOD!!
SOO glad that the surgery went good!!! Praying all the time:)))) love you guys
Janna and I are praying for precious little Noah. May God keep his hand upon him and bring complete healing. Keep the Faith and Know that Nothing is Impossible with God.
I heard about Noah from my sister who met you all this past summer when she did mission work with Lighthouse Ministries. This past Christmas, she made prayer buckets for all of her nieces and nephews and included in those a picture and story about Noah. Me and my daughter Lilly Grace have followed Noah ever since Christmas Eve. I was thrilled today when I got home and read that he seemed to be himself again after surgery. I can't imagine what you as parents have gone through since Noah's diagnosis, but through your postings I know that you are wonderful, caring parents who have put all your trust in GOD. I will continue to pray as many are for all of you.
Chills are running through me at the most recent picture of Noah in recovery holding your hand. So peaceful! Way to go Little Noah on such a BIG victory coming through today's surgery. Prayers for an uneventful night and less pain tomorrow.
I'm praising God for a good surgery outcome. I will continue to pray for an uneventful and restful night for you all.
It is wonderful to hear that Noah's surgery went well. I pray that he will continue to improve and that his pain would diminish. He is amazing and so are both of you.
I found out about your precious little angel through the site "Praying for Karlie"
God Bless you both and your sweet baby. I will be praying for Noah.
I pray that Jesus will completely cover all three of you with his love and keep you all safe and for total healing for Noah.
Praise be to God for the successful surgery!!! It is such a blessing that Noah does not seem to be impared. I pray his pain will be controlled and he recovers quickly!!
♥♥ Love ya!! ♥♥
(Caring Openly, Loving Eternally
The symbol for childhood cancer is the gold ribbon-
Praise the Lord! I pray for a restful night for your family and a speedy recovery for Noah. No swelling, no infections, no pain, tender hands to care for Noah. Peace for John David and Jessica.
In Jesus Name Amen
In Christian Love
Praise God for his Mercy and Power!
Peace be with all of you!
Prayers are continuing!
I don't know if you remember me or not but we were in the youth group together at Flo. Blvd. I am so happy Noah came out of surgery doing so well! I have thought and prayed about him all day! I will continue to pray for complete healing and a speedy recovery.
Just checking in on little Noah before i go to bed. I watched the video of him thanking people for their prayers, if that doesnt touch a heart nothing will. Noah is awesome and God is so amazing I am so thankful for all he is doing in Noah and your lives, im rejoicing with you today and will continue to pray for you all. God bless and thanks for allowing us to pray for Noah :)
Noah is such a sweet little boy and so brave. God bless him. I will continue to check in on Noah and pray for a safe speedy recovery
I do not know you and you do not know me, but through a family member I was introduced to your website where I have read all of your post. I can't even begin to imagine what you are going through. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I will pass this website on to everyone I know and will be praying for all of you that Noah has a speedy recovery and that the cancer cells will go away so he can be healthy again. God Bless You!!!
Loved the sweet video of Noah this morning. How blessed your family is! I know you are praising the Lord this morning. I will continue to pray for all of you.
I emailed Mr. Warren, and hope others will to regarding the hospital policy of making parents leave every few hours. Hopefully, enough people will email and the policy can be changed.
God bless you all.
*happy tears*... loved, loved, loved the message from Noah!!
God is relentless in His constant love for all of you! Jessica and John David, you are the perfect parents that God gave Noah! and Noah...
Much love and continued prayers....
I am glad surgery went well. You guys are still in our prayers. Sweet video of Noah.
God is good and certainly has great things in store Noah. The video is so sweet and a very brave boy. We'll continue to pray for his quick recovery.
A friend here at the office shared this site with me, and your story has moved me. Proverbs 20:24 comes to mind. In The Message it reads, "The very steps we take come from God; otherwise how would we know where we're going?" Thank you for sharing your lives with us as this unfolds. You are showing us how to live through this with dignity and faith, inspiring us, causing us to redefine priorities. It has been good for my heart to follow along. Thanks to each of you.
I heard about Noah through a former HS classmate of mine and have been following his journey through her. I was up about 4 am with my 14-month old daughter who still doesn't like to sleep through the night and I prayed earnestly for Noah as I rocked her back to sleep. Just wanted you to know that God was whispering his name into the ears of strangers in the wee hours of the night so that we might lift him up! Love to you all!
This morning we are filled with thanksgivings to our gracious God for the miracle of Jonah and his blessed parents who gift us with the love of sharing. You find the time throughtout your heartwrenching hours to keep us there with you and Noah. Thank you. Noah looks wonderful - good color - and the same Noah I know. Prayers are everywhere today - Our hearts pour with love to you..
God Bless you and your family! I am so thrilled that lil Noah is doing wonderfully after his surgery. Our God is the ultimate physician and I know he is going to heal Noah completely!!! You and your family are in my prayers. Much love from the Mattox Family.
Continuing to pray for all of you as you walk out this journey. Thank you for sharing your son with us. I am continuing to pray for Noah's healing. We don't always understand why sickness happens, but we do know Who walks through it with us. Praying for continued strength, and trust in our Lord and Savior, as you continue to 'walk it out.' Blessings and hugs.
Hey Crowe family,
Hope you got my email the other day. So thrilled with the positive surgery and recovery thus far! Our God is so great! We will continue praying for your precious family in the days ahead.
Noah you are my hero! You are so very brave, and so sweet to thank everybody for praying for you. I am praying for you and your Mommy and Daddy. God is using you greatly, young man!
I am praying for Noah. He is just a very brave and precious gift from God. God makes no mistakes. So glad surgery went well. Just saw the video of Noah. He is a very special fellow. God be with you all and confort and wrap you all three in his loving arms.
Jessica; I am one of your Aunt Kerrys friends from Paragould.. I just saw the video of Noah and WOW I am so thrilled for you and your Noah... He is an incredible young man and know your proud. The prayer chain here in Arkansas keeps going on and I will have to say your blogs show what a strong and amazing faith woman you are. I already knew that from Kerry... Keep strong and I continue to pray for your family everyday... God Bless Stacy Weeks
You guys don't know me, but Noah is constantly on mind! I'm praying for him and the two of you! I have a little guy that is very close in age to Noah. Noah's video brought tears of joy to me!! Stay strong :)
Hello from Central PA! I am so happy to hear that Noah's surgery went well! I tried to leave a message yesterday but couldn't. I suspect your site was overwhelmed with Noah's fan club! I wanted to say that Noah just flabbergasts me with his strength and courage. It is evident that he is a very special young man. I also wanted to tell you that you both have become my spiritual heroes. Words can not express how amazed I am by your faith as you travel through this journey with Noah. You have never wavered in your trust in the Lord. You both have handled yourselves with such grace and have been such wonderful parents and role models for Noah. I will continue to pray for Noah's complete recovery. I believe has great things in store for you all! Lee Ann
Just to let you know that our prayers are with the Crow family at this time. So glad Noah's surgery is over with and went fine.God bless each of you.
Hello! Praying for Noah everyday! He's a fighter! Thank you for posting his video. : )
Hey Jessica and John, I first saw the facebook page for Noah from a friend and I've been praying for yall ever since! I just saw the amazing video of Noah thanking everybody. He is truly the most amazing little warrior ever. I'm continuing to pray for yall. God bless William Boyles
I've been praying for you and Noah since his story was shared with our prayer chain at work. I'm so glad his surgery went well... and I see I'm not the only one who shed some tears watching his sweet thank you video. My family and I will continue to pray for Noah and his complete healing!
I also sent an email regarding the PICU policy - I hope it is changed soon so parents don't have to leave their little ones at any time during their recovery.
Praise God! We have been praying for Noah and the family. We met ya'll on the Lighthouse Retreat this past July and have been keep up with your blog. It's amazing what the power of prayer will do. My Our Heavenly Father continue to wrap you in HIS arms and bring you comfort and provide for all of your needs. Amen & Amen
We are so proud for Noah and you both. God has so blessed with His healing hand. We praise God for His mercies and His love. We appreciate you both sharing your heart with all of us in your posts. The video was wonderful, thank you for allowing us to see first hand how he is doing. I know God has and will continue to do great things as He heals Noah's little body. Tomorrow some of our prayers are for less pain, a successful walking attempt again without pain, and plenty of ice cream!
Love you all! God's Speed! Mr.Van & Mrs. Mary
this is Janelle Alexander (I don't know if you remember me...from Grace Christian Church (Skip & Janets daughter) or from the Ramp) but I've been keeping up with Noah's story & praying with you guys since I first came across the website... I prayed for him yesterday morning as I kept up with the progress of his surgery and I'm SO glad everything turned out as good as it did. I've completely fallen in love with this kid as I keep up with this story...I'm spreading the word and we have lots praying for him!!! Give him love from all of us in Hamilton!!!
Hello Jon. This is Cathy, Angela Hill's sister. It's been a long time, but I have mutual friends who post comments about Noah on Facebook. I just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking about you all, and you have my prayers.
I didn't see your post about contacting the CEO about the PICU policy until just now but I'm so glad you asked people to do this. I remember reading about your PICU rules months ago, and I was so frustrated for you I almost wrote a letter, because our PICU has always allowed parents to stay over night and through all the shift changes, with a one hour period twice each day where you must either stay in your room with your child or leave the PICU entirely so you don't interrupt shift change. Anyway, I understand they want to do what is in the best interest of the children, but I think that almost always involves having parents on hand. Good for you for asking people to speak up about it, I think it should be fixed!
Im so relieved to hear the CEO came and spoke with Jessica! I sent a letter to him : ) and have been on the edge of my seat checking this blog and praying from Oklahoma. I love reading the updates and praying for Noah with my daughter Ryily (3yrs) She thanked God yesterday night before bed for Noah and we prayed for his pain and tolerence through this recovery.
Thank you for allowing Ryily, all my friends and family to be apart of this journey with you. You are changing lives and are a huge light of God in my life. May peace and rest be with you ALL today. God bless you.
Praying that Noah can take his first steps today with no pain.
It is so helpful to know the specific prayers that we can pray!
God is so very present with you all! Praying that you can rest physically, mentally and spiritually in His presence!
Praise God for the good reports from the doctor today! I'm praying for a miracle to make Noah's life a testimony to God's power, mercy, and grace.
Praise God from whom all Blessings flow.
So happy for the good news.
Jesus is with us and hears our prayers.
We love you little Noah!!!
Praising God for the wonderful results of the surgery, I know He continues to hold your hands through this journey.
Praying for all of you everyday. We are anxiously waiting for you to inform us that you have seen "Noah's rainbow".
Love to all of you.
Greetings from Illinois! I'm a friend of Dave and Melinda Quinn's (used to babysit Lucy) and have been following this blog for some time. Please be assured of my daily prayers for Noah and his recovery. As a parent myself, I ache for your family and for all you've endured. But, I believe in miracles and will keep asking God to grant you one. You have a beautiful baby boy. Love, Amy
Forgot to add that Noah is in our weekly prayer book at St. Elizabeth's Catholic church. I add his name each Sunday so he's remembered during Mass each week. No small thing. xoxo
I have been following Noah's story for a couple of months. I heard of this website from Rebecca Beach, who I go to church with. We are friends on FB and she had a Pray for Noah link on her page. I clicked on it, read your family's story and instantly fell in love with precious Noah. I have a 3 1/2 year old son and can't imagine what you are going through but I know that your strength, faith and courage through this journey is AMAZING!!! I know we don't know each other, but please know that I am praying for y'all constantly. Praise God for Noah's successful surgery!
Make that boy a golden eagle, He's so handsome. I hope they (the hospital) know that you dont mess with a golden eagle. Give that boy lots of hugs and get some rest because soon he will be well and more energetic than ever!! Continued prayers for Noah and you guys too! :)
GOD is good!
Also, I am a friend of Boo's (Beth Williams Thorpe) We were all at USM around the same time.
Praying for Noah to have some relief from his sweet little head hurting. In the Name of Jesus!
I learned about Noah through a friend facebook post, and have now checked in everyday since to see how he's doing. Your love for God and your strength amazes me. Being a mother of two I can't imagine being in your shoes and I like to think that I could be just as strong I know God does amazing things because I was healed by him and I pray that God takes away his pain and keeps the cancer away. You have a precious family and will now always be close to my heart.
I have been so touched by your story and your faith. I check your site every day and send update emails to a whole list of friends and co-workers. . I love when I send the email out and I hear a series of "Praise God" and "Thank you God" up and down my hall at work when they read that God has protected Noah once again. All of us have fallen in love with that little precious boy of yours and we will continue to pray for all of you
What an amazing young man that God has blessed you with. I say blessed because nothing else can bring you to your knees in prayer as a child of your own that is in the midst of a storm such as this. Never stop praying to Jesus and reminding Him of that woman who went to the bad king and kept asking for his help and he kept putting her off. She however would not be denied and pestered him constantly, and finally wore him out. lol. He did grant her help. I forgot which book of the Bible this is in, but it has been a comfort to me in my life and I have seen miracles too. I have a beloved child with cerebral palsy and epilepsy so have not wanted to read about Noah even though I have known of him, but God put it on my heart and now I am handing it back to Him broken for your child. I will also be praying for Noah a complete recovery from this and Jesus is always faithful. Every tear you shed, He holds in His beautiful hand--they are all precious to Him. Noah is especially precious to Him. His ways are not our ways
Praying specifically that "Noah will be able to eat without nausea, that his pain will be managed, that he will be able to move his neck completely and when it comes time to walk - that nothing goes wrong."
Thank you, again, for giving us daily, specific prayers for Noah.
Praying for all of you to have peace as God works his miracles with Noah.
I do not know you personally, but we are brothers and sisters in CHRIST. I saw a post from a friend in Florence on facebook about your little warrior Noah. I have been praying for all of you daily! I admire your faith and strength through this journey. Your little Noah is a strong, precious, beautiful gift from God! Just know that my family is praying for all 3 of you!
Your Sister in Christ
I don't know you but Jennifer Pressley has been keeping us updated on Noah and your family. I have benn praying for your family. I can tell Noah is fighter. Continue to think of you and your family. God Bless!
Praying for you and your entire family & friends, for peace, joy and divine interventions from the Holy Spirit to minster to you and through you. God is a good God, our trust has to be Him and the plans that He has for each of us.
I have been reading your blog for a while now and constantly saying prayers for all of you. I have debated commenting for a long time, but didn't want to to bother you, after all, I am a complete stranger. I was just thinking this morning that sometimes God puts words in our hearts and you never know when your words will be a true blessing to someone - just what they needed to hear. So here I am writing you to let you know that I am so inspired by all of you. By your Faith, thankfulness, your love and devotion, your optimism and the grace with which you are handling everything being thrown at you, the love that pours out in your words about your precious Noah. I am in constant awe of how strong Noah is. He plows through things that would bring grown adults to their knees with such courage and bravery. You can see his little personiality shine through in all of his pictures. His smile could light up a room. I want to personally thank you for inspiring me to slow down and appreciate the everyday blessings. For that, I will be forever grateful. I will hug my children tighter and Praise The Lord for them constantly. I wish you all the strength and courage that you need. I pray for Peace and most of all healing. I BELIEVE.
John David and Jessica, our hearts are bursting over here with praises to God for these miracles. This little boy is evidence to us all of God's power and LOVE. WOW! We are staying the course and fighting the fight with you for Noahs' continued miracles and miraculous healing. How weak we are and strong God is. Just want to feel one more little cheek kiss from God's Noah. Thank you, blessed parents.. You inspire us all. Our love to you..
To the precious little cousin that I have not had the pleasure to meet, Noah you and your family are in my prayers always. May God's loving and saving Grace continue to bless you and give you strength, healing and comfort.
What a different a day makes! So good to see Noah taking his first steps. Loved his indecisiveness about wanting the bed up or down ... ah, the mind of a three year old :) I keep watching the video and just smiling. God is good, all the time ; All the time, God is good. We will keep Noah on our prayer list.
WOW! Go Noah Go! That is amazing! I am sooo happy for his progress! Our God is a mighty God! I hope and pray Noah continues to heal and regain ALL of his strength and coordination ~ all of his boy action! :) Many blessings to the whole family during this time!
I just watched the video of Noah's first steps and his spunkiness brought tears to my eyes. This is a very special little boy!! So thankful to God that he is doing so well and I will continue to be praying for all of you on the rest of this very difficult journey! Your family is an inspiration to me! God Bless you all!
I have read Noah story and watched his videos, he is a truly amazing little guy! God is the wonderful almighty healer and we will continue to pray for Noah. Please keep us all posted on Noah's progress.
Hey guys, we are so glad things are moving forward. We rejoice in His marvelous grace! All of you are such an inspiration to us!! Continued prayers from us and Elgin & Center Star United Methodist Churches
Praying every day for Noah and your family.
So glad to read that Noah is up and walking around today. I will hope and pray that soon you won't be able to keep up with him again! I'm so sorry that this tumor is so wicked-bad and won't stay away. BUT our God is a God of miracles. So, praying hard that this time, there will be no re-growth and Noah can go on to love life and live to give God the glory. You all are an awesome family and we'll be praying for you all. Hugs to all . . . Hope you are able to be home by Sunday.
This is the very first time I have visited this page, and I have not stopped crying. Noah is such a strong little man and always seems so happy. I will pray for him and your family.
Still praying for Noah and try to check in on here daily to get reports, So happy for all of you , this is all so amazing. God's blessing will continue to be with you , and i believe that this has truly touched a lot of hears. xo
What a week last weekend moving and this weekend taking home another miracle. Every day is a miracle and an amazing gift from God. Praying for a great night of rest for all of you snuggled up at home.
Just saw this post on FB and red through the web site. What amazing testimonies you have of faith. I am praying God brings your precious family a HOLY HEALING and a 2012 full of blessings beyond your wildest dreams. You are such amazing people and God is using your family to touch so many lives. I will continue to pray for Noah and for both of you as you continue to experience the amazing power of a MIGHT GOD!!!
I have been following your blogs. You have a amazing little boy. I am so thankful things are going well for him.I believe all the prayers are working miracles... I pray you can take Noah home tomorrow. I know he is sick of hospitals. Home will be a good therapy for him. God bless your family. Give Noah a hug for me even tho he doesn't know me...
Praying for Noah's fever, nausea and vomiting to go away... far away!
Thank you again, for specific prayers for Noah.
Just a note to offer hope-- today January 7th 2012 I am a 10 yr survivor of stage II Invasive Carcinoma of the breast! Note a 10 year SURVIVOR! One day you'll type/ write that about Noah and be amazed it happened - God Bless my Father, God and His wonderful healing hands!
Hi Crowe family! I just finished reading your updates on Noah, and am so glad his surgery went good! I pray everyday that God will keep His hands on Noah and on the both of u as well! Hope he feels better soon so u can go home! GOD IS GOOD.....ALL THE TIME!!!! :)
Still praying that there is no more fever, no nausea and no vomiting for Noah. Read this today and it made me think of you all:
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with Hope by the power of the Holy Spirit" Romans 15:13
We have been following your blog and are continually praying for Noah and his precious family. We love and miss you.
Hey you don't know Nicole Collier posted you blog on facebook and asked for prayer. You son is beautiful and your strength is amazing. I will be pray for you all. Also I volunteer with a group/organization called " Wings of Hope." Volunteers can help with pretty much anything bring meals, doing chores around your house, or errands, anything that would free you up to spend more time with Noah. If you are interested. Just email me. Either way I will be praying for Noah and your family.
Your little man has inspired me in so many ways and has changed the way I think. I check on all of you daily and have for a long time. Prayers for your strong boy and for you as parents.
Love and support from the Midwest!
13 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
God is Lord over all things, life and death, and He is the author of all our days! Lord, before I even ask it, You know. By Your power give peace and strength, comfort and mercy, and Lord teach us how to love in Your name. Bless Noah and his family with the faith to stand on the promise of Your Words. Amen
Oh! The picture you posted of Noah on Sunday is SO adorable!
Praying hard that his fever will be gone and that his nausea and vomiting will go as well. Maybe the results won't take as long this time so you can bring him home to his new room! Praying hard for this. Praying for peace as you are waiting for Noah's complete healing!
Keeping Noah and your family in my prayers and praising God for a successful surgery and for all He's doing. Do you realize how you minister to sooo many of us who read your blog and hear your story and see Jesus through all of this? Thank you so much for sharing with us. Praying the vomiting and fever will be gone and you all can go home soon.
Wonderful news to hear the fever has broken and Noah is feeling a bit better today. We are routing for him each and every day. Go Noah!
We are praying daily for precious Noah, Mom & Dad. I am passing this address onto some of our wonderful prayer warriors so they know specifically how to pray for Noah. Please Father God, wrap your arms around this special family and provide your strength, comfort and your lap for them to crawl up onto. Father, we pray especially that there be no infection in Noah's body and that he will be able to go home to continue his recovery.
I am soo glad the fever is staying away. I pray you will ALL be in your OWN beds tonight.
I love the video. Noah is soo adorable.
♥♥ Love ya!! ♥♥

Hi Crowe Family,
We are praying the first few days at home have gone smoothly and Noah is liking his new house. Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.
I would just like to let u know that I have been praying for Noah since I first saw a request on my niece's facebook page. I would like ur permission to ask my Church to please pray for Noah for I know what God can do. I have seen several miricales that he has performed in my life. I have 2 graandsons that are 4 days apart. One lives in Mmephis and the other lives with his Mother and me. We willall be praying for Noah and I know that God thru Jesus Christ will answer all of our prayers for Noah and your family. God Bless and Keep u always.
Your family is in our prayers daily. So glad that you are getting to be a little bit 'back to normal' and having a chance to enjoy each other and your new home. Please continue to post any specific prayers that you would like us to pray.
Love to you all,
I just wanted to say that your little boy is a wonderful little man... I have been praying for him from the moment I heard his story... He sounds and looks like he is a strong and brave little boy... I am praying that he has the chance to experience all the good things that this life has to offer...
Thank you for the wonderful update. God's "YES" is such a powerful witness to all of us who are caring, loving and praying for you! I will pray now, by your request that: "Above all we are praying the surgery removed every cancer cell from his brain and we will not need to make any more treatment decisions because no tumor will ever grow again, and he will live to be a very old man with an amazing story of how God used Noah's physicians along with His healing hand to spare Noah's life. For this child we will pray, for His glory to be made known, and for His will to be done."
You are an amazing family.
Your little boy, as well as both of you have amazed me during this journey. I am a longtime reader, first time poster but felt the need to let you know there are sooo many of us out here that pray daily. God Bless!
A couple of weeks ago, I read and wept my way through Noah's story and the journey you have all been on. You all have been on my mind and in my prayers daily. He is such a beautiful little guy. It is so wonderful to learn that he is steadily improving and at home. My family is joining you in praying that every bit of the cancer was removed and Noah is restored to full health.
Just wanted to let you know that you guys are on my mind. I hope things are going well in the new house and Noah is doing great! Lots of love and prayers!!!
Wahooo!!!! Thank you for taking the time to post an update on Noah. My 10 1/2 year old son, James, and I check every day. James even told me yesterday he had a dream that he was typing in the website to check on Noah and another little boy's name/picture kept coming up. We believe there is another child out there that needs our prayers too! What joyous news you have shared, our hearts are brimming with happiness for you. Truly is a miracle. Noah is just a doll. Please keep us posted on his progress. April is so far away, enjoy each minute with this little angel. Let this "win" give you hope and encouragement that all will be right with Noah! God Bless!
Praise God! I am so pleased that your prayers have been answered so far. I just knew your faith would be rewarded. I check the site every day hoping for word about Noah's recovery. My wife and I continue to pray for Noah every day and spread the word as best we can. My Sunday school class asks about Noah every week. He has become a big part of our everyday life, and we have been so blessed by your faith and Noah's courage.
Noah is God's little soldier for so many of us. I pray that He blesses you with peace for the future and comfort for today.
Thank God for all He is doing in Noah's life! Thank you all for sharing your son and the miracles God is working in his life with us. What a MIGHTY GOD we serve! Continuing to keep you all lifted in prayer and the strength to make through each day with His hand guiding you!
Thank you, John David, for the best news ever! Yes - a miracle for Jonah and you and Jessica. This little gift has much to do and be on this earth. I just know it.. We are thanking God for his mercy and love.
Your faith will keep you strong even through the dark days of doubt from now until April. All will be well. God promises this. Savor each second with this angelic little boy.
Hugs and a kiss to Noah and Christian Love to you both.
Susan and Jim Owens
Wow! and Praise God! I don't know you guys, but just came across this website several months ago. You were so brave to even allow this last surgery. It must have been so hard on you. But to see the miracle as evidenced by those MRI pics is totally amazing! This is truly a testimony of what God can do! I will keep praying for you in this journey.
Lisa from Texas
God is great! It is wonderful to hear about the progress Noah has made. I will continue to pray for your family. Thank you for sharing your amazing faith with everybody.
Thank you for the update! Amazing pictures on the blog.... through Noah we are allowed to "see a miracle"!
Praying that his cancer is now dead at the root. Praying for the peace of God to guard your hearts as you wait for Noah's MRI in April.
Hello... I have been following Noah's journey since about mid-November 2011 (started reading the blog from the beginning) when it was shared as a prayer request between some friends on Facebook. I have to confess that when I read about the MRI result prior to this most recent (successful) surgery, that the tumor was back and larger than expected, and that the option to just allow him to live out his days at home was on the table, my heart sank. I thought, "this is it" and cried heavy tears. I admired the decision-making process you shared... that attempting surgery would be better than to quit the fight altogether. Let me tell you, I was AMAZED when I read that Noah was pretty much back to himself aside from some tiny speech issues, etc. I shook my head and felt ashamed that I had even doubted a miracle like this would take place for your family. Praise the Lord!!
I lost my Dad to sporadic CJD (a prion disease of the brain) in May 2010 and was devastated. We were supposed to be able to save him, right? God would provide a miracle, right? I had saved my children's Cord Blood for this reason, right? Well, no one has ever survived this disease and despite my pastor's heartfelt prayer that Dad be the first to survive and we would give God all the glory, Dad passed away within 3 weeks. Perhaps I had lost a bit of "awe" until I came across your blog. Reading about your son's successes has revitalized my faith to pray for miracles of all kinds... to save a friend's marriage, among other things.
Thank you for sharing your/Noah's journey. I am certain you have touched more lives than you know.
Jessica, you don't know me but I got to know your mom & dad when they moved into the married dorms at USM. We went to the same high school but they were 2yrs younger than I was. We became friends and the two things I remember at that time was that your mom drew a picture of an Ole Miss football player for my then 5yo son. They also gave us a PHS glass mug. I still have those two things. Anyway both our families ended up in Jackson & we saw them & you and your sister a couple of times. Then we got busy and the next thing I knew, I saw your mom in the hall at Baptist hospital & she told me your dad was in the hospital & it wasn't good. I am a nurse there. I just read Noah's story last night & was so moved - so much love, faith & trials. Just know that I am praying for Noah and your family.
I finally got on a computer that allowed me to watch the videos you have posted since this last surgery. They were absolutely wonderful! Thanks for posting them and allowing us to see Noah's progress. It is one thing to read about it but quite another to actually see it. Thank you Jesus for this miracle!
We are praying for Noah's continual recovery and total healing - no cancer cells at all!!!
I was thinking and praying for Noah and you all and wanted to drop you a note . I am praying so hard that these past weeks are continuing to bring you "uneventful" days of peace and continued healing in Noah's sweet little head! Know that so many are in prayer for you in Indiana!
God bless you all
Still praying that everything is going well with Noah. I don't know him, but I love him.
I've been following your blog for some time now. I'm praying little Noah is doing well. Update us when you have a chance.
I hope all is well in the new home and you're having uneventful days for a change. Hopefully, uneventful days will turn into weeks and then months. My wife and I feel so blessed for your sharing Noah's story. We continue to pray for Noah every day.
Thank you for the update Jessica - helps us all to know how to pray for Noah and you parents. Yes - I believe in spiritual warfare - prayer is its battleground.
Praying for April 23rd & also for your every day life....xoxo
I have been praying for Noah for over a year now and of course also your family. We at TC know "spiritual warfare" and 100+ men pray for Noah every Monday evening! God bless you richly and give you and yours many more "uneventful" years! The devil is a liar! You on the other hand possess the Truth.
