Warring in prayer...

Two HUGE hit's this week both in our family and our church family.

My mother-in-law was diagnosed with colon cancer 2 weeks ago. She had surgery last Wed. where they removed a portion of the cancerous colon. Pathology reports came back today and we rec'd the news that she has cancer in her lymph nodes. She is in great spirits. She always has a positive attitude. We don't know yet what her therapy will be, but there is talk of radiation as the first option. We'll know more once she meets with an oncologist. Please pray for complete healing for Carolyn's body and for a quick recovery from her surgery. She should be released from the hospital tomorrow.

In our church family, my good friend Michele's son Brenton, age 8 was diagnosed with cancer as well this week. He'd been having some tummy issues and a CT Scan revealed a mass in his stomach, etc...Surgery revealed the cancer is in his liver and lung. They removed a golf ball sized mass in his lung on Friday. His pathology reports will be in tomorrow. A page has been set up to keep everyone abreast of the latest info: http://www.caringbridge.com/visit/brentonroberts

PLEASE PRAY FOR BOTH OF THESE DEAR PEOPLE IN OUR LIVES! MAY GOD GRANT COMPLETE HEALING IN THEIR BODIES!!!

Thank you,

Heather

Prayers are with you!
What a good time of year for a couple miracles.
A miracle happened to my friend's mom where cancer was concerned! I know it can happen!
