Really need your prayers for my sister


Recommended Posts

I just can't believe this. My sister who lives in Tulsa has just be diagnosed with throat cancer. The doctor who did the biopsy called and said he removed about a 1/2" tumor and that is was cancerous, she thinks he said squamous cell.

In the last 5 years, my sister has lost her husband, 3 of her sons have all died, she has fought geradia (spelling), calcium poisining (no idea where that came from), breast cancer, a major heart attack and now this.

She sounds very brave and very matter of fact. Fortunately, her daughter is there with her. She will get more info on Monday as to prognosis and treatment.

She is a tiny little thing and oh so brave. Please include her in your prayers.

Oh Ginny, I can't imagine what your sister has gone through. I hope and pray she hears some good news next week. I know your whole family must be reeling right now, too. Tell your sister, she is in our prayers and in our thoughts. Wish there was more I could do or say.

The one thing my throat surgeon told me when I was first diagnosed with throat cancer was that it is one of the more curable cancers. Mine unfortunately was very advanced when found with 8 lymph nodes the larnyx the thyroid etc. and then spread to my lungs. So hopefully once the doc removed the tumor she will be ok. Even apparently if you have some reoccurence above the collar bone it is something that can be dealt with. Good luck.

Oh, Ginny, I bleed for you and I cry with you. Sisters are SO special and it hurts SO badly when they are suffering. May your sisterly love (which is beyond explanation or comprehension) help get you through this unfair crisis.
