Please Pray!

I would like to ask you during this Octave of Easter to pray for the 21 year old daughter of a friend of ours. The daughter, Emily, was supposed to have surgery on Good Friday to remove a Stage I cancerous lesion on her tongue. When the doctors went to check it out again, they discovered that in two weeks time it has advanced to Stage III and she is no longer a candidate for surgery.

Today she begins the eight week process of chemo and radiation in an effort to rid her body of the cancer, which has also spread to at least one lymph node in her neck. Please pray that she is healed and that she and her family are given an abundance of Easter grace so that they remain strong throughout this trial.

Thank you very much!


  1. Enclosed in the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

  2. Oh, what a difficult situation. I will be praying for her.
