View Full Version : Prayers Please for my Niece with Cancer

May 31st, 2018, 02:26 PM
I recently learned that my niece Linda, who lives in Brookings, OR, has had her cancer return after 30 yrs., when she had breast cancer. She's in her early 60's. The cancer is in her lung, liver, & SI bone (sacroiliac). She's undergoing chemo once a week, but she has to go all the way to Medford, which is an almost 3 hr. drive each way. She said it's taking all she's got to try to eat and to keep down food. The anti-nausea meds. & pain meds. make her very sleepy, so she's sleeping several hrs. every afternoon. Her sister is helping her, as is her husb., & son & DIL. Her husb.'s job is in Portland, so he can't always be at home with her. I would appreciate prayers for her. Thank you.

I'm so sorry to hear this sad news. Prayers for her, family as she fights this battle. Sending best wishes and hugs for strength and courage.

So sorry to hear that her cancer is back. Does her state allow medical marijuana? I hear it increases the appetite and helps with pain.

Prayers and hugs coming her way.

I don't know if Oregon allows marijuana or not. I doubt if she would choose to use it due to her Christian beliefs, but I know of a couple Christian ladies at our church who have used it on a short time basis with an Rx from their dr. Both had pain issues. The one lady had fibromyalgia really bad. She's better now & not using it.

I am sad to hear this. Cancer treatment is so arduous and it is a shame she has to travel so far away to get it. I am not religious and I do not pray but my thoughts will certainly be with you, Linda, and the rest of her family.

I decided to gift one of my finished quilts to Linda for her to use for chemo treatments or whenever. I sewed on the label this afternoon & need to get it boxed up & mailed. It is the Square-in-a-Square quilt with Kaffe Fassett fabrics. It's bright & colorful; I hope it will give her a smile.
