Breast Cancer Prayer Request

Hello everyone,
I know if there is anywhere to go for a prayer request, it is here. One of my dearest and best friends was diagnosed with Breast Cancer yesterday. She is going in for surgery to have the tumor removed, plus some lymph nodes and tissue samples next Tuesday. Her name is Maria. Please add her to her prayer list. I can't even bear to think of the negative in this situation. We honestly did not think this would be cancer. I am still numb, but the tears are starting to flow. I am praying that they get all of it and the lymph nodes and surrounding tissue is cancer free.

Thank you so much for reading this,
Laney

Absolutely I will pray for your friend! My best friend from high school was diagnosed a week before her 34th birthday (2 years ago). It was in her lymph nodes, but she has done awesome! She had radiation and chemo, and ended up having a double mastectomy (the cancer was only on one side, but there is a family history and she didn't want to take any chances). 2 weeks ago, she ran her first marathon since her diagnosis (she's run them before, but not since this). I believe her amazing attitude and willingness to fight made all the difference in the world! Lots of prayer and incredible hope helped as well, I'm sure!

My prayers are with your friend and with you as you support her through this difficult time,

My thoughts and prayers are with the two of you. There is so much that they can do now. I have a friend with a son who is a leading cancer research specialist and he says that they are making tremendous strides every day!!

Both my mom and I are breast cancer survivors. 12 yrs, for my mom, 10 yrs. for me. Keep your chin up and just be a good listener if she needs to talk. Sometimes that is the best med." Hugs" to you both, Nancy

I will pray very hard for you and your friend. I have been through this twice. The second time it was breast cancer the first uterine. AND I AM ALIVE AND WELL AND WANT TO LET EVERYONE KNOW IT. Family and friends are your best asset when going through this.

Be there when she wants to laugh, and when she wants to cry. Actually I didn't cry much only the day they told me. Help her pick out a wig when it is time and be a pal and wear hats with her. Try to keep her away from all the people who want to tell the horror stories. I wrote a song "I'll have hair for Christmas" to the tune of "I'll be home for Christmas" and sang that when people started getting too heavy on me.

I am a better person for having been through all this and I know it. God has been good to me and I am so thankful.
