24 February 2009 - Special Prayer Requests
Anita has experienced a recurrence of her leukemia after a bone marrow transplant several years ago; the doctors think she has three to six months left to live and she is now under the care of hospice. Anita is a Christian and is not afraid to die, but fears a painful and prolonged death. Sadly, her husband Wayne and son Leland are not believers. Please pray Anita will take the time she has left here on earth to grow closer to God and her family and that her family will do likewise. In particular please pray that her husband and son will let their hearts be drawn to God. Also, please pray for Anita's pain to be controlled and suffering to be minimal, for joyful days with friends and family. Anita and her family live in El Cajon.
Caroline (age 11, leukemia recurrence) Caroline was diagnosed with leukemia at age 7 and underwent a bone marrow transplant in July. On 24 February 2009, she had her Hickman line removed at the City of Hope today, the first time in almost four years she hasn't had something implanted in her chest! Her numbers are pretty good for now. Please pray for Caroline's complete recovery from leukemia and for peace for her parents, Carmen and Jeff. Caroline has a 40% chance of relapsing after her transplant, and if she does chances of recovery are very slim. Please pray the leukemia has been eradicated and she remains clear of any cancerous cells Thanks so much for being faithful prayer warriors on Caroline's behalf. Please keep her in your prayers. She has always gained so much strength and healing from your prayers.
