I am thrilled to see this thread. My family could use prayers. Here is the background. In December of 2006 my uncle died after a long battle with cancer and Crohn's disease. In May of 2007 my 22-year-old brother had a heart attack (no cause ever found, but he is doing well now...just don't know if it could happen again...he is a very active/healthy kid). In November of 2007 my dad became suddenly very ill...he ended up in the hospital for five weeks, during which time he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He went through 12 weeks of chemo (and many complications). During this time his mother also passed away. In May he had a PET scan to see if the chemo had worked. They found spots on his lungs, so on June 23 he will be having a biopsy. Please pray for good results (they are now thinking he may also have something called sarcidosis (spelling?), which I hear is not treatable). The last year and a half has been really trying for my family (plus I'm still trying to find a job). Please pray that things turn around for us...we are all in need of some good news.
