Girls Write Out

ACFW Girls STanding 2010
We got news yesterday what we weren't expecting. Di's ovarian cancer has returned. To so we were all blindsided is an understatement. Denise and I had lunch with Diann last Saturday, and she looked and felt great. Her CA-125 was still super low so when the PET scan found a tiny nodule we all hoped and prayed it was scar tissue. But the biopsy came back early and Di is facing another battle.
She will have a laparaoscopy surgery to remove the tiny tumor (on her BIRTHDAY no less!) then a week later will have a treatment where they open her up and pour heated chemo into her abdomen. I'm excited about this treatment. From all I've read, this could deliver the knock out punch we've all been praying for. But it's major surgery and she will need all our prayers to get through it.
Will you lock arms and walk with us through these challenging days ahead? We need God's strength and intervention in the worst way. Thanks for praying, friends! We know you love Diann too and will lift her to the throne.

Jesus be her encouragement and joy and by the Word of her testimony a Light to all she comes in contact with. Cause this new medicine/procedure to finish off that cancer and give her healing freedom.

Prayers going up for Diann!

 
At 9:54 PM, Blogger Crystal Laine said...

Of course! We will continue to pray for you, Diann!

It's gotta be God's timing that they got it so early before her CA-125 even went up, so we'll pray that God will continue to intervene. I had heard of this treatment back before they approved it here. It's exciting that they continue to make these strides in the fight.

Hugs for all of you, but especially Diann.
