Prayers for healing, strength, comfort and courage for all who are fighting cancer:
Prayers for Sue’s brother, Earle Bearce, who’s at South Shore Hospital, as they search for VA care.
For Frank’s dear friend Troy whose condition is better, following 8 rounds of chemotherapy. Some tumors have shrunk, but others have appeared. The silver lining is that he’s moved in with his ex-wife to take the pressure off the kids, and they’re enjoying each other which is really lovely, since they’re both great people. Keep the prayers coming!!!
For Mike Bruccoleri’s cousin Terri who has been diagnosed with cancer. Prayers for her please. For Nancy’s cousin’s husband Nicholas Mouw (brain tumor) is improved, thank God.
