Sorry, not really a whine, but a request...

My 50 year old uncle is fighting lung cancer with brain metastasis for the past 5 years. The doctor just informed him he has 4-6 weeks to live (without him asking...he volunteered this info) He is devastated. Please pray for a miracle, as I'm afraid only God can help him now.

I believe in the power of prayer. As a cancer survivor, I believe it was paramount to saving my life.

Thank you in advance.

I"m sorry to hear that, Hawkgirl. I've said a prayer. Cancer sucks. I didn't know you were a survivor. Good for you!

Your uncle, you and your family are in my prayers Hawkgirl.
50 is way too young to face this, but he is in God's hands.

His daughter is 24 and his son is 21. He has a 1 year old grand-daughter. He and his wife have been together since they were both 16 years of age. She is being remarkably strong, spoke to both of them yesterday and they are going to try one more drug that is supposed to cut off blood supply to the tumors. He is trying to be optimistic. They are going to a healing mass on Monday to receive the sacrament of Annointing of the Sick.(We are Catholic) He has an amazing will to live, despite the bad news he was given by his doctor. He has been through 5 skull surgeries to remove the lesions that have popped up within the last year. I'm glad I got to spend a week with him last week when he came to visit us. (We are in Florida and he is in NY)

He is the youngest of 9 children.
