Request

I confess I haven't had much to share lately, but today's news is rather urgent.
 
I'm going to ask that anyone who takes the time to read this to please
 
say a quick prayer for my friend Kate, who is battling small cell carcinoma ovarian cancer,
 
which has only one known survivor to date.
 
 
 
 
Cancer is never easy, it's never cut and dry, it's never "get the treatment and get out"...
 
Right now, Kate has some very critical health issues that have arisen that must be addressed
 
before further treatment can resume. 
 
She has been in and out of the hospital trying to correct the situation.
 
Scans are showing she is cancer free;
 
she has had surgery, finished chemo, but must still go through radiation.
 
The radiation cannot occur until some other things are taken care of.
 
She amazes me, that at 19 years old and facing a ferocious cancer in the face,
 
she can still greet me with a very bright positive smile!  She in one tough cookie.
 
 
Kate, I'm praying that you beat it!
 
 UPDATE, SUNDAY MORNING:
I just talked to Kate's mom this morning and she is now cleared
to start her radiation!  Thank you for your prayers and please
let's pray that this will be the end of her treatment and she will be survivor #2!
