View Full Version : Prayers Requested for Cousin with Cancer

January 5th, 2017, 11:10 PM
I got an e-m today from DH's cousin, Sharon, who lives in the Pac. NW. We had not heard from her at Christmas. Now we know why. She had a double mastectomy on Dec. 20. Four out of 5 lymph nodes on the left side were positive for stage 3 cancer. In 2 wks. she'll be starting chemo., to be followed by radiation. Her husb. has Parkinson's. She temporarily had to place him in a care facility for ~3 months; the level of care he requires is beyond her right now. Her 95 y.o. mom is in a memory care unit. She has 3 daus. who are available & supportive. Please pray for her as she travels this cancer journey & that the treatments will be effective. Thanks for praying.

I'm sorry about this and will keep her in my thoughts. Please have her double check because we are finding out the hard way about radiation. For it to be the most effective, you are supposed to have it concurrently with the chemo. MM's oncologist has been pushing surgery from the start even though he was told that was not the route we were headed down from the start. It was three months into chemo that we had radiation mentioned to us and that he should have been doing it at the same time. So, now chemo ended 2.5 weeks ago and radiation starts tomorrow afternoon. Hoping it does the trick!
