Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

Nicole and I went to the hospital to see Nicole's friend. She was Ok on Monday, could not walk on Tuesday, and had emergency surgery on Weds. to remove a tumor from her spine. She had her first chemo treatment yesterday, I guess it's Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma(I'm not sure what kind). I'm also guessing from internet reading that it's stage 3 or even 4 because there is more then one tumor. This is the same cancer I thought I might have last summer. I had weeks of tests and was by Gods grace OK. I have read and heard this is a common and treatable cancer. Her chances are very good. Still, what a shock for a 16 year old to face! The treatment can also be long and very hard. It's not an easy thing for her or her family. I've already seen her in the hospital, and admit I still don't believe it! What a shock! What a very hard thing to face. Please lift Sarah up in your prayers. I do pray that she will be covered with the love and peace of God. She is an extraordinary young women. I'm so sorry she has to walk down this hard road.

We had a friend at church Anna who had this and God has walked her threw a year long struggle but she is in remission for now. We are so thankful because Anna has a very young daughter and a husband that loves her dearly.
