Prayers for friend's mom (cancer, ending treatment)
11/2/12 | newzjunkey

Posted on 11/01/2012 9:22:09 PM PDT by newzjunkey

My good friend's 53 year old mother has been battling cancer for two years.

She has decided to end treatment (chemo) to manage pain and nausea. Doctors have given her 2-6 mo.

They're asking for prayers. Her first name is Margaret.


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Daily Prayer
KEYWORDS: cancer; prayer; prayers
In his mid-twenties and alone in life presently, he is able to visit home on weekends but it's a four hour trip each way.

TIA for thoughts & prayers offered.

Type ?
She might be a candidate for a phase 2 study, clinicaltrials.gov. Even her death could benefit those that will be in her shoes.

If you can be specific as to the cancer, type, sub type ect. I’ll see if there is an option. Assuming not demand in house hospice care. Its about dignity and pain management. She’s in the hospice window. If she has a faith, get them involved. Her son should let his employer know, and ask for time off before its critical.

Prayers up and our thoughts are with her and family.

Having said that, I recently had cancer myself and caught it early and was cured,....so far. I cannot recommend highly enough MD Anderson in Houston Texas. In my 2 month stay there I met many, and I mean MANY, that were told to go home and die by some of the biggest hospitals in America and elsewhere. There were several bonafide "miracles" I witnessed with my own eyes.

I don't know the circumstances and don't want to offer false hope, but if you die from cancer and it's not at MD Anderson, you haven't tried EVERYTHING. They are kind, understanding, efficient, and the smartest guys in the room. All I met were Christians and treated people with dignity with some of the most horrendous conditions imaginable. A personal friend I made there came from Alabama and was told he had less than 6 months to live and nothing else could be done. He came there, received about 2 months therapy, chemo and Proton radiation, and I just received word last month he is cured.

Everyone has their own decisions to make.( money is sometimes a problem at MD Anderson). My insurance covered everything. Medicare pays about 80%.

Just something to think about.

Many times a patient hangs on to the doctor they have had for decades, or they are depressed and told there is no hope. My own doctor told me what I chose at MD Anderson was "not proven" and he suggested I go with his treatment. As far as I'm concerned, I chose rightly.

PS. If they have travel problems, there are Apartments there that were free if you get on their waiting list. Some others are subsidized, and others are paid for by insurance if you have it. The one I got was 100% free except for the clean up deposit. It was clean and right across the street from my treatments. I could even walk to them when I felt good enough.

Dear Heavenly Father, I’m in agreement with this prayer group for a miracle for Margaret, I don’t know if she is a believer, but you has promised your children 77 year, Margaret is way to young and she has love ones that need her. You can heal her miraculously or by the hands of good doctors. I know that you hear our prayers and we thank you for that. In Jesus name we pray, amen
