Prayer Request...

Christ is Risen!
My very good friend (who also happens to be my mom's best friend's daughter- translated= our mom's are best friends- they have known each other since before they met two Greeks) Maria was just diagnosed with breast cancer. Through the intercessions of St. Nektarios may the Lord watch over and project Maria. I, like my mom, am very sad. But I am boosted by Maria's optimism and I hope to do everything that I can to help her and her husband get through this trial! Please pray for her husband, family, and friends. I have nothing else to say because I am still trying to wrap my brain and heart around this. Thank you...

Prayers for Maria and everyone who loves her. Let us know how she is doing.

I will pray for Maria.

One thing that has helped is [another] part-time job I had interviewing cancer patients. I suppose I've always been so afraid of that word. I was surprised at how many people go through the treatment with not too many awful symptoms (our study was about symptom management) and get better forever!

Prayers are so appreciated though, my friends - and those wonderful patients - told me.

I couldnt agree more Annie. When I was very ill I felt like I was being "carried" at times. I know it was all the prayers that were going up for me.....
