Prayers Needed!


My older sister Amy found out this week she has breast cancer. I haven't had a chance to blog to much this week because of recent events. My sister is 39 weeks pregnant with her first baby. She meet with the breast surgeon today. They are thinking, this Friday to remove the cancerous lump. The surgeon feels that my sister catch the tumor very early. They will put her under probably on Friday and remove the lump. They will check her lymph nods to make sure it hasn't spread. The baby could go into dis stress and they would have to do an emergency c-section. Please pray for my sister and her unborn child. I have FAITH that Heavenly Father will make sure everything will go okay.
Also, this Saturday, I'm going to run in my first 5k for the race for a cure.
I'm still in shock about this whole cancer thing. Send encouraging words and prayers my way for my sister Amy.
Thanks,
lara

Lara-

If she is that far along why don't they do a c-section first? I guess it must be less risk the other way. Well, please know that I am thinking about you both. if you need any thing let me know.

They want to remove the lump first because they are afraid that if she delievers first her milk will come in and it will make it difficult for the doc to remove the lump and a greater risk for infection.

Amy and your family will be in my thoughts, especially Friday. Good luck Saturday as well.

I will be praying for your sister and your family. Especially Friday. My older sister has been battling a rare form of cancer for the past three years. I know how difficult it can be to watch someone so close going through something so tough.

Amy, be strong! You have prayers! And God has got it all under control!

Lara,

I am so sorry to hear about your sister. Cancer is so scary to go through let alone the fact that she is pregnant...my thoughts and prayers will be with you all.

The baby will keep her strong and fighting I am sure. She has so much to live for!!!
