Prayer Requests

It seems like everytime you turn on TV or the radio, you hear of tragedies - the devastation of Hurricane Ike, Metrolink crashes, as well as things that hit a little closer to home, such as friends and family members being diagnosed with cancer.

In recent days, I've received news of two new prayer requests, one for a newly diagnosed cancer, and one for a return of cancer. Won't you please join in prayer for these friends and family members:

My Friend Diana - Stage 4 lung cancer. Metasized to the bones, her pelvis, spots on her liver, her kidney. Currently home with a home health nurse visiting daily. Had appointment to discuss chemo options, plan of care, etc. Essentially has days to months left. She knows the Lord.

Keith's Dad, Bob - Has esophageal cancer. Currently receiving chemo and soon to begin radiation.

Keith's Twin Sister, Stacey - Diagnosed this week with Breast Cancer. Seeking second opinions and planning out care.

Keith's Nephew, Noah - This sweet little boy is just four years old (the same age as our Rachel) and in early 2007 was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. Over the course of the last year, he's had chemo, radiation, bone marrow transplant, and numerous other medical things done to him. The middle of August marked his one year milestone of being in remission. Sadly, this last week, after numerous body scans, Noah's cancer has come back in four spots and it came back fast and hard. He begins chemo next Monday. Please pray for his parents, Scott and Diane as they are recently divorced and facing their son battling cancer once again.
