Micaela Danielle White

Sadly, Micaela Danielle White, 18,  passed away Wednesday, the 17th.  The funeral Mass will be at 11 a.m. on Saturday, August 20th at Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Plano, TX.  A vigil service will be at 7:00 p.m. this evening at the church.  The family will receive friends during the visitation beginning at 6:00 p.m.

I’ve been getting a lot of hits on my posts about Micaela and wanted to pass this along when I received the news. My prayers are with her family. This has been an especially tough year for them for several reasons.  As for Micaela, after her long battle with leukemia, she is in a place without pain in the arms of the Lord.

Peace be with you.

You may recall my earlier post when the Danny White family was having a barbeque to benefit their 18 year old daughter, Micaela, who is battling Acute Myeloid Lymphoma. Danny is a friend from high school and his parents are members of our church. The recent news on Micaela from her grandparents is that she is still trying to regain enough strength to have a bone marrow transplant at Children’s Medical Center. And, to make matters worse, the family suffered a devastating fire in February at their home in which they lost nearly everything, and which forced them to find temporary living quarters.

A Catfish Boil and Cookout is being held in Micaela’s honor on June 4th from noon until 4 p.m. at the Rosemeade Market in Carrollton. Please help if you can by attending the cookout or making a contribution at the Micaelas Army website. If you graduated from W. T. White in the ‘70’s, you will have a chance to catch up with old friends and classmates at the cookout. Find more information by reading my previous post and the WFAA news report from March.

Peace be with you.

Micaela White, daughter of Danny White, who graduated with my younger brother, Dennis, and granddaughter of Don and Jan White, who attend my church, Christ UMC, Farmers Branch, is fighting leukemia at age 18. Micaela has been at Children’s Hospital since Christmas and is currently in ICU. This Saturday, March 26th, Danny will be cooking barbeque at Rosemeade Market   from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to raise money for Micaela’s medical expenses. Danny has vowed to cook as much barbeque as he can.

There is an invite on Facebook at the wtwhite.org  group page  where you can RSVP. It will help them to have enough barbeque. If you graduated from W. T. White, particularly during the ‘70’s, come to have barbeque, catch up with people from high school, and help Micaela. If you cannot come out but want to help, donations can be made at any Bank of America location. The account number is 488031763938 and the routing number is 111000025.

Micaela also needs blood and blood products donated to Carter Bloodcare  in her name to support an upcoming bone marrow transplant. Her account information is: Micaela White #050332 Children’s Medical Center Building D Dallas, Texas. Prayers are also needed. The picture of Micaela is from a WFAA news story which has more information on her situation.

Peace be with you.
