A good friend of ours was diagnosed with colon cancer (that may have spread to his liver) and will have surgury this morning to remove at least one tumor.
Chemo will be the next step.
This will be truly life changing for this very active, outdoors man and his family.
Your prayers for his recovery and healing would be most welcome.
Prayers for successful treatment and full & speedy recovery.
Prayers Of course: Cancer patients are always in my prayers, I have lost so many of my own family and friends from it.
What a terrible disease.
I pray your friend has a swift recovery and is free from it after surgery.
Just prayed for your friend.
My Dad had colon cancer 30+ years ago. Surgery was successful. He passed away 2 years ago at the ripe old age of 93.
Your friend and his family are in our prayers.
Prayers lifted, for strength and for healing. Please Lord, hold them all close and please, see them through this frightening and difficult time.
Please consider getting your hands on some marijuana for your friend. It made all the difference for me during similar cancer treatments a few years ago. Don’t hesitate — the chemo is brutal and the weed can allow him to be able to keep fluids down and even eat a little.
I will pray for your friend. What is his first name?
He’s fortunate to have a friend like you
May God protect and heal your friend.
COLON CANCER SURGERY
Just to give your friend some hope, let me share the experiences of my best friend. I went to check on her one morning; she was in incredible pain. Unbeknownst to her, a tumor had ruptured through her colon. She had stage 3 colon cancer. That was 8 years ago. Prior to that, she had a melanoma removed. About 6 years ago she had a cancer found on her ovary which was removed. Subsequently, she is still closely watched and continues to have actinic keratoses and squamous cells removed. She’s in her mid 70s, and I tell her she’s like a timex. Tell your friend to have hope. And courage. He’s about to hit a rough patch in his road, but he can survive and thrive.
Prayer Bump for your friend. Does he know the Lord?
Prayers of healing and comfort for your friend. Prayers for you as well. You are a great friend.
Thanks for the tip.
His name is Mark.
Thank you, Quix
Prayers for healing and recovery going up!
