Willie Nelson is a no-nonsense conservative who has become known for spreading the word of God despite the music industry pressuring him to keep his Christian views to himself.
Now, Nelson is calling for his fans to pray for a four year-old girl who used his music to recover from a series of life-threatening surgeries.
Little Ava Adams was born premature, and she a grueling 15-month process of 12 surgeries at only 27 weeks old. According to The Political Insider, her parents, Brittany and Jamison, now credit Nelson with saving Ava’s life.
“Any time she was having a bad day, you could play Willie Nelson or Johnny Cash or Ray Price and her stats would come up, she would start doing better just almost immediately,” Jamison told reporters.
“You have no clue how many times you’ve actually saved our daughter’s life,” Brittany added, addressing Nelson directly. “There were times where her heart rate was incredibly low. She was … cardiac, she was not doing well. She spent so long in there and it was such a long road, but actually just playing that music for her really, really did change and save her life.”
Now four years-old, Ava carries two things around with her everywhere. One is a backpack with a feeding tube, and the other is a Willie Nelson doll.
Though she is getting stronger, Ava is still fighting for her life. Please pray for this little girl’s recovery!
