Prayer Request

Just a quick prayer request for my roommate and her family.

I've known Suzannah since 9th grade, and her older sister Nicola was one of my best friends. Nicola died in a car accident about 4 years ago.

S's mother was diagnosed with breast cancer this week. S is handeling it surprisingly well, but it clearly upset at the possibility of losing someone else so close. To make matters more complicated S is also a pharmacy student and has some major exams this semester that she needs to pass.

Anyhow, her mother has surgery scheduled for Tuesday and they are doing to check her lymph nodes etc. then. Her mother has a number of medical conditions and adding this clearly wouldn't help. They found this in her first mammogram in ten years, so if nothing else, its good that she had to get one.

So prayers please, this family has had a huge number of burdens and they need all the prayer they can get.
thank you

Prayers for Susannah and her mom. That's a lot of trouble in a short time.

Allie, tell S that you know a woman who has survived after breast cancer for 21 years. That's me. It might help her to see that it's often not a death sentence.

Prayers for Susannah, her mother, and you, too, Allie. It is heartbreaking that some families have to endure so much, and good friends like you must struggle with your own worry along with the need to give comfort and care.
