What is the Marlee Factor?
The Marlee Factor was coined by the hospital Chaplain as we prayed for our gravely ill daughter. Pastor Susan asked God to not let the doctors forget the Marlee Factor. And that is it! The Marlee Factor -- that she is an individual (as is each and every one of us). Don't treat her as the "typical" patient/child. She is full of fight, determination, inspiration, faith, hope, strength, and perseverance. Don't discount the Marlee Factor in yourself and those you love either!
We believe that all the children have their own factor within them that allows them to fight the hard fight to live, grow, and have the best possible outcome. It might be the James Factor or the Connor Factor or the Madison Factor but it is there in each of these special children.
Don't discount the Marlee Factor! It is in each of us! Especially the children!
