Prayer Request

I have a prayer request for my blogging friends. Would you please pray for my sister-in-law, Jan? Jan is a few days younger than me, she has a husband and 2 sons who are 16 and 20. She had breast cancer 2 years ago and had done well until a month ago, when they found the cancer had spread. It is now in her bones and liver. She received one chemo treatment and then had to be hospitalized when she developed a bad infection. She has now been transferred to a bigger hospital because of more problems. We got a call tonight telling us her kidneys are failing and they are trying dialysis. Please pray for Jan, and also her husband Rog and sons Christopher and Max. Thanks to all of you - I really appreciate it.

Mari,

My prayers are with Jan, Rog, Christopher and Max. Aunt May's breast cancer also turned into bone and liver cancer. It is a terrible disease. My heart goes out to you and your family.

Thank you so much for the prayers for Aunt May. You are a treasured friend.
Blessings,
Mary

I just stopped and prayed for Jan and her family. I prayed that God will surround her with his healing power and the knowledge that she is not alone. He holds us all in His hands. Keep us updated.

Hugs!
