Girl With Leukemia Gets ‘Clean’ Test Results After Asking for Prayers

After nearly 150,000 people watched a 7-year-old girl request prayers ahead of a test for her cancer treatment Thursday, her test results came back “clean.”

Ava Lee said in the viral video posted Wednesday, “Well, tomorrow I’m going to get a PET scan and we really need it to be clear so we can go to transplant. And I was wondering if you could pray for me?”

A day later, Lee’s mother, Esther, posted an update on a Facebook page documenting her leukemia treatment, called Team Brighter Days, that Lee’s PET scan came back “clean.”

They’re now able to move forward with the bone marrow transplant, which has been scheduled “in the next few weeks.”

Esther Lee said her daughter has been longing to create vlogs and “this was just another moment of wanting to ask people to pray for her in her great time of need.”

Lee has been waging her battle with cancer since 2014. That’s the year she was diagnosed with a “super rare” form of leukemia, Esther Lee told ABC News.

Her mother added that after finding the right chemotherapy to work, her daughter went into remission for 10 months before she relapsed with a form of cancer “only in her skin.” By March 2016, the cancer had spread to different parts of her body.

Lee’s PET scan on Thursday, in which she solicited prayers for, was able to tell doctors if she’s a good candidate for a second bone marrow transplant.
