Please Pray

Many of you have been praying for my friend Stacey in her battle with breast cancer. She desperately needs your prayers right now. Here is the most recent update from her mother:

"My dear friends and family, things have taken a turn for the worse.  Stacey has been transferred to the Intermediate Care Unit as her breathing as gotten much worse, her heart rate is high, and she hasn’t really gained much awareness after her MRI session this afternoon.

The doctor didn’t arrive to visit until 10:30 this evening.  We are thankful that no metastasis was found in the brain.  Unfortunately her liver has gotten much worse and because toxins are not being processed through the liver, it is causing major distress on her body and organs.  All of the symptoms we see are resulting from the liver.

They suspect now, because of highly elevated white cell count, that she has a major infection (probably around the liver) and have done many blood tests and blood cultures tonight to determine where and what we are looking at. 

The doctor is highly concerned and hopes to reverse the issues we are dealing with quickly, but we are in a life-threatening situation now.  The next 24-48 hours are crucial to her overcoming this current challenge.

We obviously will not be going home tomorrow and she WILL NOT be able to receive her PARP on Monday. We don’t know how this will affect her participation in the study.

Prayer Warriors, our family needs you now more than ever before!  We are not ready!  We have not done the things we need to do!  We need more time!  God grant us this please.  Father, it is in your hands and we trust and know your will and your timing is perfect, but we ask your favour for more time!

Give us strength!  Provide her comfort!"

Thank you for praying!


  1. My mom called me just about the time you posted this so we could pray together.
    The Lord woke her up early this morning and led her to the caring bridge site.
    Thank you for spreading the word!

  2. Sending up lots of prayers. This hurts my heart.
