    My sister was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 1 yr ago. Chemo has been stopped and hospice is helping to keep her comfortable. She is a believer so will be going to be with Jesus. She has not been one to talk about The Lord a lot so it is hard to visit about spiritual things. Just need pray for the words God would have me say to her. Thank you.

      How is your sister?

    This is a beautiful blessing, thank you for the opportunity to help comfort my father with this gift basket. He has been diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer that popped up out of nowhere so suddenly and Drs have no idea where it came from and how it became stage 4 before it was even detected. My father has regular blood work and check ups, he was actually thoroughly checked out less than 6 months prior to discovering the cancer so this was a complete and utter shock to all of us. We are doing all that we can to help him fight and so far God has been so good to us all. Although his liver has taken up his entire torso from left to right and from under his ribs to his groin….God has been gracious and allowed some shrinking of the largest tumors. The Lord has let my father remain strong throughout his 3x week chemo treatments and dad has been regaining his weight back since he started his treatments also. He’s now at the waiting and monitoring part of it all right now, b u t I believe God will continue to be great!!! Staying positive and trusting God!

      Glad you wrote, Kathy, praying for your father and you and your family. Yes the suddenness of an advanced diagnosis is a huge shock, especially with healthy people like your dad. Yet it’s no surprise to God and HE is always in control even in the face of setbacks. I’m staying positive with you and asking and trusting for total healing for him. Love your attitude – hope is crucial IMO!
