I don't usually do this but a friend of mine is struggling with cancer and I feel the need to share her story and ask you all for prayers.
Michelle T, wife and homeschooling Mom , with 2 daughters, ages approx 18 & 8. Was recently diagnosed with Melanoma in her lungs after a volunteer scan while at work revealed a spot in her lungs. You see Michelle works at a radiologist office, and they had installed a new machine. She volunteered to test the machine, and the results were puzzling. At first they thought they'd mis-calibrated it. But no, she had melanoma in multiple locations.
A PET scan revealed one spot in her liver and on two lymph nodes along with the larger one in her lungs.
She has been doing some treatments that have not been effective, and this is the latest update from her facebook page
10/30/2009 Well we made it home from Houston safe and sound. Thank you Lord! Driving home in the storms was not fun at all.
We met with the doctor and the news we received was not what we wanted to hear. This horrible disease has spread pretty much throughout my body, including one lesion in the brain. I tell you this only to let you know that we are prepared to fight this battle! In no way are we giving in to this disease. Our God is the almighty physician and we trust in him fully!
Our first step is to get this brain lesion taken care of. I will be contacting a neurosurgeon today and hopefully we can get this done quickly.
The next step is to go back to Houston in a couple of weeks and discuss options. Unfortunately the trial that I have been waiting on for so long will no longer be an option. One of the exclusions is metastasis to the brain. While that is very disappointing, I have to believe that God has a plan. (and his plan is perfect)
"If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
Happy moments, praise God
Difficult moments,seek God
Quiet moments,worship God
Painful moments,trust God
Every moment, thank God"
