This precious little girl is battling an inoperable brain tumor. Her request? Photos and messages from your dog to cheer her up.

Sweet Emma Mertens continues to fight a rare tumor. And what has been helping keep her going through this scary time is getting photos and messages from your dogs. Such an easy and loving way to reach out to a family that is hurting.

They have now set up a Facebook page where you can share your dog's photo and a message with Emma. CLICK HERE to do that.

They could also use your financial help in case you can make a contribution. CLICK HERE to do that.

You can also get updates on Emma by reading her dad Geoffrey's journal entries HERE.

Geoff says in a journal entry that the response from around the world has been heart warming. The doggie photos and messages are pouring in and, as Geoff goes on to say, being kind is simple and God works in mysterious ways.

Sending prayers, Mertens family, for your precious little girl.
