Skip to comments.Prayer Request: Little girl with spinal cancer
Posted on 05/27/2008 5:27:39 PM PDT by To Hell With Poverty
I received some sad news from my friend Ana today. Her niece in England, who has been battling spinal cancer for a little while, has not been making progress. Here is her email:
This is my niece Natasha. She has been battling spinal cancer for the last year. She had an operation where they took out what they could but it was so involved in the spinal cord they had to leave a lot. She has been doing chemo for the last year and MRI's to check progress. I heard last week from my Mum and again yesterday, that the MRI has shown that the cancer is growing...even with chemo. She is now to undergo radiation therapy. She will have 6 week bouts of it.
My brother has aged 20 years in the last year. His hair has gone absolute white in a month and it has fallen out in clumps. He is 2 years older than me but looks 68 years old.
So if I don't appear my usual bright self you will know why.
Anyway, you all know how the British healthcare system is...this poor little doll needs our help! I told Ana I'd round up as many prayers as I could, and I know this is the best place to start!
Thanks for posting.
My prayers are with Natasha and her family.
It is so hard when the young ones suffer! Prayers for her healing, for her loving parents, for the doctors and nurses, and for all to go smoothly in a complex system.
Oh My. YES I will pray.

I will pray for this little girl. I am told this is so painful.
May Our Lord, Jesus Christ,bathe her in His Mercy.
May His holy angels comfort her and her family.
May the saints be united in prayers for her strength and healing.
Prayers for Natasha and her family.
Prayers for healing, peace and courage.
May God heal Ana and give her family strength and hope.
I will pray for little Natasha and her anguished parents.
Prayers going up.
When I get to heaven I’m going to ask God what’s up with letting little girls suffer with this most painful of cancers. Please, Lord, let this child be the instrument by which You show that You are the Great Physician. Heal her, assuage her suffering, and calm the hearts of her poor agonized parents.
Prayers for the little girl and family—
