Prayer request for son - brain cancer checkup


My wife and 12 year old son are on their way to St. Jude in TN this Sunday for our first 3 month checkup after completing 8 months of treatment (surgery, recovery, radiation, chemotherapy) for his brain cancer (medulloblastoma).

Please pray all will be well for our son. No recurrence of disease and no serious debilitating side effects or spread to a new area.

Thanks and God Bless.


:gopray: My heart goes out to all people suffering with cancer, especially children. I know how hard it is around this time, with followups , cat scans, bloodwork…God is with you, Tim


My prayers are certainly with your family. Please let us know how his checkup goes.

[LEFT]*O my dearest Mother Mary,
Mother of Sorrows, behold me, your child, in prayer.
I have come to plead for this special favor
through the intercession of your faithful servant, Saint Peregrine:
This young boy in a battle with cancer.
O Sorrowful Mother,
I beg you to present my petition to your Divine Son.
If you will pray for me, I cannot be refused.
I know, dearest Mother,
that you want me to seek God’s Will in all things.
Therefore, with childlike trust,
I abandon myself to God’s Holy Will concerning my request.
If what I ask for should not be granted,
pray that I may receive that which will be of greater benefit to my soul.
Mother of Sorrows, I Love You!
I put my confidence in you,
because your prayers before God are most powerful.
For the greater glory of God
and through the intercession of Saint Peregrine,
whom you have led to Sainthood,
hear and grant my prayer.
Amen. *[/LEFT]


:signofcross: I too am with you in prayer and spirit for a complete healing.




UPDATE - Wife just called and we got the great news - No Evidence of Disease ( or NED as we say in the cancer circle). Thank you all for your prayers and cares. I just spoke to my son and I could here the glee in his young voice. Amen, amen.
