Dan is the nephew of a friend and has been bravely battling cancer for many years. Last week he had a major surgery involving amputation of one arm, but came out of it with a great attitude and in a better position to continue the battle.
You can visit his caring bridge website here.
These two moms are friends of my cousins (they have children who go to school with my cousins' children) who asked for prayers for them today:
Colleen has been in & out of the hospital with breast cancer for 8 months now. She had emergency surgery this morning for an infection - just another in a long line of problems she has had in fighting this cancer.
Jacqui is in ICU here. I don't have a lot of info on her condition - apparently she has blood clots and will need surgery once she is stable. Her husband has MS so Jacqui is the main-stay of the family. She has four children - one starting college, one starting high school a 6th grader and a 3rd grader.
Many thanks for including them in your prayers too!
