Lord remember Giuseppe and Vincenzina ,Cancer patients

Hi St Peregrine,
Well, I’ve been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. I still feel good and and am healthy. I am going to fight to the end. If you can’t help me, that’s OK. I’m pretty old and I’ve lived an extremely blessed life. I would ask that you make a pass through MD Anderson in Houston every now and then. Take a look around, and save a child. There are way too many children there. It breaks my heart.
By the way. That is a really cool name. My mom is a bird watcher and the falcon is one of our favorites.
Thanks from an old sinner!

Thank you!!!

Thanks, Georgia.
