Prayer needed for my friend!

  1. I have a friend that started nursing school with me on August 27th. Last week they found out she had a tumor in her chest growing in her left lung and around the greater vessels of her heart. It has grown from the size of a fist to a melon in 7 days! They got pathology back and it is AML leukemia. They took bone marrow too. She has 4 kids, her youngest is only 6. I am scared for her, she wants to be a nurse so badly and she has fought so hard to get this far in school, now we have to worry if she can come back and if she will still be around in a year. I have known her for 23 years and we were so excited to fulfill our lifelong dream together....I miss her so much. I can't even go see her because she is in ICU and I'm not family. Besides they are keeping her asleep after surgery to do a biopsy and place a chemo shunt, because of the pain. Please pray very hard for her, I want as many people in the world lifting her up as possible. Thanks!

    My prayers are with you and her family. God will help you through this. I know he can!!! My boyfriend was diagnosed with AML 3 years ago, just shy of his 40th birthday. He was given 2 weeks at the most to live. He had a stem cell transplant on August 10, 2004. He is still alive today!!!! I know that God can perform miracles because my boyfriend was a true miracle. I prayed to God everyday and he gave me the strength to endur everything that I went through and he answered my prayers. I could not have went through that traumatic experiece without God. He was there with me and my boyfriend through it all. WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! Keep us updated on her condition.
