Prayer Request for Michelle, Sister of my Sister-in-law, Mother of 3 brave boys serving our Nation
Self

Posted on 10/04/2012 7:21:49 PM PDT by ConorMacNessa

Received the following email from my Sister-in-Law:

Hello Everyone,

Just wanted to share some news about my sister Michelle. She has been diagnosed with Oral Cancer. About 10 days ago she had an ulcer removed from her lower lip and just received the results of the biopsy yesterday. The good news is that it has not spread to her lymph nodes and hopefully is localized.

She is now scheduled for additional surgery on October 16th – the doctor needs to remove more of the surrounding tissue to make sure that all of it has been removed. The recovery period is 6 to 8 weeks. She will be consulting with an Oncologist at some point with the plan following surgery – not sure if Chemo or Radiation or both will be in her future.

With Jim working at the National Cancer Institute ..he of course has already reached out to some top researchers in the field of this type of Cancer…it does have a high cure rate (as long as it does not get to the lymph nodes) –so that it a good reason to be hopeful. Of course the location of the cancer will of course cause a disfigurement (to what extent we are not sure)- (but again hopeful that there will be some type of reconstruction surgery in her future).

Not that there is any good time for news like this but with her boys spread throughout the country..it is not easy.

Ian leaves for Basic Training on Oct 15th – Travis is currently in Kansas in his 3rd week of Basic Training and Grayson has been stationed at Fort Hood Texas(with rumors that his Unit may be heading to Korea possibly in the Spring). Thankfully John is still at home and of course Sean.

I will be taking a few days off of work to help while she recovers. As you can imagine Michelle was upbeat and was re-assuring me that she would be fine. I am sure that her positive attitude will certainly help as she battles this illness.

Please keep her in your prayers and I will certainly keep everyone informed on her progress.

Thank You,



TOPICS: Prayer
KEYWORDS:
I have known Michelle for over twenty years and she is a stalwart patriot and Believer.

Three of her sons are now serving in the Army. One at Fort Hood, one in Basic Training, and one preparing to enter Basic Training the 15th of this month. Two of them are 18 year-old twins who just graduated from High School in June. They are great guys and great Americans.

This family is in deep need of our prayers and I commend them to you.

Prayers for a complete cure. I think that kind of cancer is eminently treatable, and I pray that it is so.

Heavenly Father, surround this family with the comfort of your presence and the protection of your guardian angels. May your healing hand be upon Michelle as she undergoes treatment ... “For I am the Lord that healeth thee (Exodus 15:26). Raise her up, O Lord, restored to the fullness of health, to the everlasting Glory of your Name.

Thank you for the overwhelming love of country this family has shown. May these young men go forth in purpose and return in triumph, and may the gospel be proclaimed wherever they serve.

In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, may it be thus, O Lord, may it be thus, Amen ...
