Prayer Request

This is a sticky post, please scroll down for new postings.

My brother -in-law was recently diagnosed with a stomach cancer. I am not very particular of what kind is it,  but my SIL said it is a very rare form of cancer. I am asking your help to please pray for my BIL. He will have a surgery this coming Monday at UPMC.  We are all praying and hoping that it will be for the better.  The surgery will involve removing his stomach which means that he won't have one after the surgery. It is the only way to cut the tumor that is growing inside. I am not sure how he could normally function after the surgery but I do trust the surgeons.
Above was taken last Christmas, we did not know that time that he has the growing tumor in his stomach.  We feel like, we are running out of time so we make sure to visit him  oftentimes now.  My sister-in-law told me that she is mad and in denial to why this thing is happening to them.

Below was taken the other day.  We've visited him again and I was shocked to see him  very skinny already.  He lost a lot of weight already as he couldn't eat.
Please pray for him and for all the people who are sick and in need of the divine healing.  His Mom died of the same cancer, their Aunt died of cancer too a couple of years ago, we are hoping and praying that Dave will come through this battle.  Thank you for your prayers!

  10. Oh My Gosh Sweet Friend...
    I am sending prayers up as I type for God to watch over him tomorrow and guide the Dr.s as they perform this serious surgery that they are going to perform. May the angels comfort you and your family as you wait on news for this wonderful man who is a big part of your family. I will be saying many prayers tonight and tomorrow as well.

    Many hugs to you all sweet friend. Love, Sherry

  12. Hi Rose,

    I am so sorry to hear this news. I will be praying for Dave and for all of you. My FIL had esophagus cancer, but was older and decided to not have surgery.

    They do have these nutrition backpacks (I don't know the real name) that my DIL wore during her pregnancy, where you are being tube fed as you go about your day.

    What a difficult and heartbreaking time for you guys. God bless and take care,

    Kathy M.
