My friend Maureen

Thought I'd give you all an update on my friend who is battling her 3rd bout of cancer. Maureen has had ovarian cancer (about 6 years ago) and survived that - barely, then last year - cancer in her bowel, for which she had surgery. Now it is back and has spread to her liver. The chemo is no longer working. She met with her doctor this week - there is nothing else that can be done. Maureen is very much a woman of God and is accepting that she will be with the Lord before this year is done. However, that doesn't make it totally easy for her - she has two daughters, both married with young children of their own. Maureen is functioning pretty well currently but without a direct physical healing from God she will likely be in palliative care by summer's end. Please remember her and her family in your prayers. I am still praying for the cancer to stop and be gone in Jesus' Name!

Oh Little Missionary Julie,. This is so sad.
I thought that Maureen was feeling better but oh!, if it has spread to the liver that is serious. We will certainly be praying for this courageous woman of God and for the kids.
You know Jesus can make this cancer stop if it be His will. You are right to be praying for that...Love Terry

Dear Julie, LBM,
I'll join in with prayers for Maureen. We all know that for God anything is possible.
