Hello everyone. This is my first post here. I love how this is started with "What's on your mind?" - makes me smile...cause I have much on my mind.Anyway, I'd like to ask if you guys would join me in faith and prayer for my 6 year old daughter, Janet. She is fighting a rare and aggressive cancer - literally thought to be one of a kind in the entire world. She went through radiation and then high dose chemo therapy, and completed treatment in January, 2014. In February, 2014, it was confirmed that the treatment had worked - she was cancer free. In May, there were follow up scans that noted a small spot on her spine, just thought to be an enlarged blood vessel.This all changed when August, 2014 scans revealed that Janet's cancer was back, this time having metastasized to multiple locations down her spine. She went through cranio spinal radiation, and is now on cycle 5 of a new (relapse) chemo therapy protocol. During her most recent scans, we got a mixture of good and not so great news. The good news was that one tumor on her spine shrank a little bit, and the others were stable - neither having grown or shrank. The not so positive news is that there was this "enhancing nodule" in her brain again. It could possibly be effects from the radiation or is suspected to be metastasis - or the cancer having spread back to her brain.I'm sorry this is turning out to be so long. I really appreciate your taking the time to read, and especially if you will pray. Our prayer ultimately is that she be healed completely, and once again be cancer free. (The medical community doesn't seem to think this is a realistic hope, but I say it is. Our God is bigger than any cancer, and bigger than any tumor!) In the interim, if chemo is going to be a method to help get her there, then that she is protected from any negative effects of chemo - past, present or future. We are also praying that she is able to maintain her energy and appetite, and that her tummy keeps feeling alright. She is in chemo every day this week.All in all, we're praying for God's will for her life, and for our peace and strength as this journey continues. Many thanks, friends.
