    Your friend and her family will be in my prayers. Never under estimate the power of prayer.

    A story of hope for you: A friend of mine, her sister was diagnosed with a brain tumor the size of a silver dollar. She already had facial paralysis, partial hearing loss. Well, she went in for surgery last week and the tumor that they saw the day before on the MRI was gone. The neurosurgeon and the ENT called it a miracle. The day after surgery on the MRI, you can see the change, the tumor that was there 2 days before was gone.

    Well, this is my final update for my friend Kelli. She went to be with the Lord today after a valiant struggle. It was very sudden in spite of the cancer, she had the tumor in her chest still and it was growing even with chemo and radiation. It had wrapped around her heart and they didn't realize until this week it was also infiltrating one of the major arteries, today it broke the wall and she bled out.....the blessing was it was instant. She was gone to fast to be scared and she didn't suffer at all. I have cried a lot the past 3 hours, but only for myself I know she is at peace and without pain. Pray for her Mom and her Husband, he has always depended on her so much and they have 4 kids. The 3 oldest are 15 y.o. and up, but the youngest is only 7 and she has a new granddaughter that is only 3 months and will never know her. Thanks for your prayers and support over this year.:heartbeat

    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. CA is among the worst of diseases and so hard to watch someone you care about suffering with. I lost a 38 y/o friend to breast CA last year. She was seemingly doing well and in 4 short months lost her battle.

    Blessings to you and her family and other friends. :angel2:

    Take care of yourself and thanks for the update! :icon_hug:
