Prayers for the Hoyt Family

Please know first and foremost before reading this message: Caitlin and Caroline Hoyt are NOT aware of the following details. Greg and Robin are asking for prayers but have NOT yet told the girls about Campbell's condition.So, it goes without saying, please DO NOT call the Hoyt household and leave a message that the girls may hear.

About 2 weeks ago, Campbell Hoyt, the 3 year old daughter of Greg and Robin Hoyt started feeling very ill. She was vomiting, maintained a fever, and became very listless and lethargic. Her symptoms remained the same for this entire time period. After several visits and calls to the Pediatrician and ER, Campbell was admitted to the hospital last night. A CT scan was done and determined that Campbell's symptoms are being caused by a brain tumor. The tumor is located between the 4th ventricle and cerebellum near the brain stem. The Doctors feel that it is a malignant tumor and plan to remove it tomorrow morning at 7:30 am. The surgery is expected to take @ 5 hours.The tumor will then be sent to pathology for further testing which will determine Campbell's next course of treatment.

Campbell is currently in the Pediatric ICU at Morristown Memorial Hospital, 100 Madison Ave. Morristown, NJ 07960. They are not able to accept gifts or flowers in the ICU, but will be able to after her surgery when she is in recovery.

The Hoyt's are very grateful for the love and prayers and would appreciate messages left on this site. They are not able to return phone messages at this time as they are focusing on Campbell. Greg's brother, Mark is answering Greg's cell phone if you call that number. Information will be updated on this site via Mark Hoyt to Chris and Shelley West. We will update more details as soon as it becomes available.

The best way to help the Hoyt's at this time is to surround them with Love and Prayers specifically for: Peace of mind and Rest for the entire Hoyt family. Pray for The Doctors, Nurses and Staff who are caring for Campbell. Pray that the Surgery goes smoothly and that the ENTIRE tumor is removed. Pray for complete healing of Campell Hoyt. And, pray that Caitlin and Caroline will peacefully understand and accept the news about their little sister when Greg and Robin explain it to them.

  3. Robin and Greg, I am so very sorry that you are having to endure this difficult circumstance. I cannot imagine what you are going through! I love you and will be lifting Cam in prayer as well as the rest of your family! I will specifically be praying for strength for her during the surgery, wisdom and precision for the doctors, and a peace that passes all understanding for the two of you and the rest of the family. God has a plan for you and Cam. His plans are to give her a hope and future! Read Jeremiah 29:11! I am so glad that you have dear friends who have walked a similar road. What a gift from God that you have them. I am sure He had a plan even in that! I LOVE YOU GUYS! Lauren :)

  7. Greg and Robin, we are praying for God to give you strength, rest, and comfort, and for him to lay his healing hands upon Campbell. I know Caitlin and Caroline will be wonderful big sisters and help put smiles on Campbell's face as she recovers from surgery- Maybe that is why you have all girls- they make such great little Mommies! Cam will constantly be in our thoughts and we love you guys!- Brian and Tiff
