"I won’t mince words; this is very, very bad news," she wrote. "We are worried. We are scared. We are devastated."

Samantha said the disease has transformed from lymphoma into leukemia, and is now running through the veins of his body.

The last treatment option for Andrew is a clinical study, but Samantha said they "need a miracle."

She asks readers to pray for them, and for healing, strength, treatment, wisdom and perspective.
