Prayer needed for Maggie

Hello friends,

Our lives have been forever changed by adding Michael to our family.   Part of the process meant meeting some absolutely incredible people.  People here at our agency, CCAI, people in our travel group that we will forever call friends, and the in China staff of CCAI.  Maggie is a member of the Guangzhou CCAI staff and truly helped us every step of the way in Guangzhou.    When Adam and I had severe colds in Guangzhou, Maggie and Grace went to the drugstore to bring us medicine to the hotel.  When Michael had struggles, they "held our hand".     

Maggie needs prayer.  I have copied an email that our agency has sent out.  Please pray for Maggie and her sweet new baby, Hope.   My heart is heavy.  Thank you for your prayers.

Dear CCAI Families,

We’re writing to you today because your family has been touched by our wonderful CCAI Guangzhou representative Maggie Pan.  On June 9, six months pregnant, Maggie checked herself into a hospital as a result of breathing difficulties.  Two days later she was diagnosed with late-term stomach, liver and lung cancers.

Yesterday, doctors delivered her baby via C-section in order to save the baby’s life.  At around 10:00 am on July 2, her baby girl Hope was born, more than three months premature but with a strong heartbeat.  Hope weighs only 1.8 pounds.   

Doctors then immediately operated on Maggie and removed as many tumors as they could.  Almost 24 hours have now passed, but she still has not yet woken up. Doctors have informed her family to prepare for the worst.

Baby Hope is in intensive care, fighting for her life…

Maggie joined CCAI in 2000 and has provided incredible service to more than 1,000 CCAI families like yours.  Will you join us in prayer during this very sad and difficult time for Maggie and her family?

We have established a Hope for Maggie Fund to help with Maggie and her daughter’s medical costs.   Donations of any amount are needed and much appreciated.

Contributions can be made online at  or by check to CCAI (6920 South Holly Cir., Centennial, CO 80112). 100% of your tax deductible donation will go to the Hope for Maggie Fund.

If you have any questions, please contact us at 303-850-9998 or email to

Thank you very much for your prayers and support!

Josh and Lily
