    May I ask for Prayers? *UPDATE 6/21/09*

    I had an unexpectantly long day today.

    My SIL has brain cancer.

    She has been battling a mystery illness and after a long year, or atleast what it seems, she was diagnosed today with brain cancer. We are all in shock and so ****** off because it took so long to diagnose. We are just devistated.

    I ask that you pray for Kerrie and give her the strength through all of your good vibes and prayers to beat the cancer. I also ask that you pray to give her doctors' the knowledge to treat it so she can continue to mother her only child and live happily ever after with her husband who loves her so dearly.

    Please Pray for her mother who had to watch her husband die of brain cancer and will watch as Kerrie goes through this and give her the strength to carry on and love, care and support Kerrie.

    Please pray for her son and husband who loves their momma so much! Give them strength to get through this difficult time.

    Dear God in Heaven, please lay Your Loving Healing Hands on Kerrie and heal her body. Give her the strength to fight with all the might I know she has. Please keep her safe. God, please give the doctors' all the knowledge and resources necesary to fight this brain cancer. We love her Dear Lord! I and our whole family will intrust in You Lord that she will be safe and You will heal her Lord. Amen.

    Please pray with me and include Kerrie to your Prayer list.

    Re: May I ask for Prayers?

    It was so hard to hear her tell me. I had to tell her mom. I didn't know the right words to say. That C word is so hard to say when it affects the one you love.

    I believe in God and the Power of Prayer and I also believe in miracles and a MIRACLE is what we need!

    I am Praying that the doctors' know what they need to do and that Kerrie has the strength and fight to pull through it!

    Dear Lord God, heal Kerrie. Make her whole again and take the cancer and pain away.

    Casey...our prayers and thoughts are with Kerry. Keep the faith.

    Since you are relatively near NYC, I would strongly suggest a consultation at Sloan Kettering Medical Center http://www.mskcc.org/mskcc/html/457.cfm...a friend of ours from Fl was told her Cancer was inoperable, well sloan thought otherwise and she is still with us 2yrs later

    God bless

    Casey, I'm so sorry. Please let Kerry know that we're all praying for her FULL RECOVERY. I believe strongly in the power of prayer and I certainly am seeing that a lot of folks on here do too! "Where two or more are gathered in my name, there will I be also..."

    Casey, have they said whether it's easily operable, or risky operable yet?

    Cherie,
    I don't know yet. Thank you for asking though. As soon as I find out, I'll let you know.

    I'll continue to pray for her health and I ask that you pray with me through this difficult time. Thank you all for being so generous with your thoughts and prayers!

    Re: May I ask for Prayers?

    Casey, saying big prayers and sending healing thoughts to Kerrie and all of your family. Praying for a MIRACLE for her and for her to get the best treatment available. Hopefully she can get second opinions and Sloan Kettering is great. We have M.D. Anderson Cancer Center here in Houston...if her doctors feel like she needs to come here for any treatment, please PM me and I'll be more than happy to help you guys in any way. I know you'll keep us updated. I know this is such a tough time for all of you...hang in there. Kerrie, keep the faith that you'll be guided to just the right place for healing...we're thinking about you and praying for you.

    Re: May I ask for Prayers?

    I just spoke with Kerrie and they have yet to find cancer in her blood like her doctor said she did! The doctor told her she had brain cancer! They can not find anything yet!

    She is however overdosed on depicote that her doctor perscribed to her for seizures!

    Please continue to pray that the doctors' will NOT find cancer and she will be okay! I'm going to see her here shortly as soon as ds get's out of the shower. I told her I have prayers going out all over the world for her. Please continue to pray! Our Dear Lord in Heaven is hearing us!

    Dear Lord God, Heal Kerrie from the inside out from the top of her head to the tips of her toes! In Jesus Name We Pray!
