Prayers for a friend please.

My heart is so heavy and sad right now. My dear friend, Libby, has just found out her cancer has spread to her brain. She had stage 3 breast cancer about 5 years ago. Last year it came back, but in other places. She's been getting treatments for this. Then last week, she had the worst headaches and nausea. Her husband got her to the hospital. Tests and more tests. They did finally do a spinal tap. Results were that the cancer is in her spinal fluid and brain now. Just this morning, she had surgery to relieve pressure on her brain and a device was implanted, like a shunt, to relive pressure and to put chemo into her spine.

Her youngest son got married last year. He and his wife are going to have a baby in June. The doctor told Libby they would do all they could to buy her time. She just asked the doctor to get her to June, when her grand baby is born, so she can hold the baby. The doctor said he would do all he could for her to reach that goal. I am going to pray that she gets to hold ALL her grand babies.

Libby is the most precious woman, besides my mother, that I know. She is the most humble Christian. She is the hardest worker for the Lord I have ever known. I have known her since I started going to the Nazarene church 34 years ago. Libby has never ever stopped working. She always does the children's programs and Christmas plays. She taught elementary school for several years. She just loves children. Will do anything for them.

I just don't understand this at all. I can ask God why all day long and never understand why He would allow this to happen to Libby.

Please pray frr a miracle for Libby. Thank you.

Doctors can do great things today, after seeking
God's wisdom and guidance. I will continue to pray for Libby and for God's will to be done.

Prayers for Libby and her family. We never will understand His plan. We just trust Him.

Thank you Abby and Betty Ann. I know. It's not right. But we do not know the plans He has for any of us. We just have to trust. That's all we can do. He is in charge.

I'm so sorry for your friend.
It seems as though EVERYONE is getting cancer. Especially thyroid cancer. I believe its the things we are being exposed to in our environment against our will.
My Sisters Father in law got cancer a couple years ago. She told him about Gerson, and he wanted to do it, but his family was against it. He almost died in the hospital. He finally got better when his Son started making him the Gerson juice, and sneaking it into him in the hospital (because they don't want you having raw juice). When he quite his juicing, it came back. My Sister and her Husband begged him to go to Gerson. He wanted to go, but left the decision up to his wife, and she said Hospital (insurance doesn't pay for Gerson). He has had a bad go of it, but is slowly getting better.
Anyway, my point is maybe you could suggest your friend look into Gerson, or at least do the juicing at home. They heal a lot of people that doctors have deemed incurable and have sent home to die.
I will keep Libby in my prayers.
