Prayer Request for My Mother

As many of you know, I don’t write or talk about my family. I just have never felt comfortable doing so–it’s the Internet. There are a lot of crazy people on here. I prefer to keep my private life…private.

But I felt the need to share this with you. My mother(Joeann) has been battling Lymphoma now for almost a year. She went through 6 chemotherapy sessions and over 30 radiation treatments to get rid of a grapefruit sized tumor under her arm. Last week she went to the hospital for a scan to see if the cancer had gone into remission.

We got bad news today. Unfortunately the cancer has spread. It is now on her liver, stomach, in her breast, under her knee cap and on her rib cage. The good news is that these are all little tumors, and they are all Lymphoma. The bad news is that this type of Lymphoma is very aggressive.

She will be admitted into the hospital on Wednesday for seven days of aggressive chemotherapy. She is in her 70’s and this will take a heavy toll on her body. In later weeks, this treatment will expand to include an experimental treatment for Lymphoma that her doctors said has produced encouraging results in other patients.

Obviously she is devastated. Today she went in hoping to find out that her cancer had gone into remission. This was not the news that we had hoped to hear.

I ask you for these two favors.

1) Please pray for her.

2) Obviously she reads this blog. If you could drop her a quick note of encouragement in the comment section I will be forever grateful.


Thank you,

    These are the days that our Lord carries us in His loving arms. May you feel His love and be filled with His strength, as we can do all things through He who strengthens us. Know that you are in my prayers and will be until you are well again. You have one very special daughter you know. She loves you a lot. I have one like that, too. Or as we refer to it in my family, she would eat a bug for me. Even a crunchy one. Yup. That’s love!
    So may God’s blessings be on you both.

  10. Hi there Ms. Joeann
    God is able to meet every need you have. He loves and cares for you and hates that you are going through this. He is there with you – through every moment – and will be in the coming weeks and months. I’ve added you to my prayer list and want you to know that I am praying for you by name every day.

    Joeann, Last night I said a special prayer for a very special person, and when I woke up this morning I said another one, and will continue praying for you everyday I asked God to wrap he’s arms around you and not to let go. Sometimes things get hard for a reason and I think those are the times that God carries us, and makes us stronger in the long run, which is hard to see right now but you will see down the road, you are so strong and such a fighter. Joeann you are amazing and one of the most carring people I know and my heart is with you and your family, so get well soon because Pauline and I are coming to see you when you get back home.

    My heart is with you,

    I think it would help me if a stranger let me know he was thinking about me, so here you go.
