(WBTV) - The family of a five-year-old girl battling E. coli says Jesus is watching over her little girl and the proof is in the town's local paper.
Five-year-old Hannah Roberts has been in the hospital for nearly a week, since she became sick after visiting the Cleveland County Fair.
Doctors diagnosed Hannah with E. coli on Friday evening, according to a Facebook page for the little girl, three days after she was admitted to the Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte.
Hannah is one of more than three dozen people believed to be sickened at the fair.
Around 10:25 p.m. on Sunday night, a picture was posted online from an article about Hannah in the Gaston Gazette.
"Jesus is watching over our Hannah," the online post stated."Can you see Him in this picture of Hannah printed in the Gaston Gazette?"
The photo shows the young girl with what some say is an image of Jesus' face over her right shoulder.
Hannah's family has been asking for prayers since she became sick.
According to their online posts, Hannah contracted the HUS strain that attacks the kidneys, requiring her to go through dialysis. She had a pic-line and dialysis port put in on Monday afternoon.
"We just have to pray that her body is strong enough to start the healing process," the post stated. "There is really no medicine to treat it. Please pray."
