irish Posted August 12, 2014 Report Share Posted August 12, 2014 As some of you know Tammy's husband Jim has Multiple Myeloma (Bone Marrow Cancer). He was first diagnosed 5 years ago. He underwent chemo treatments and a stem cell transplant in the summer of 2009 and was in remission until Nov 2012. He started chemo treatments again in February 2013; until November 2013. He had a stem cell transplant in Dec 2013 and was in the hospital for 3 weeks. Unfortunately within 6 weeks the cancer was back. His cancer counts slowly keep going up. He has been so strong and keeps holding his head high and standing in the face of cancer and saying; "No! I will not let you beat me" I have more fight left in me. He is Tammy's Hero (and mine as well)!! If this wasn't enough our Tammy has Lupus (SLE) and Fibromyalgia which keeps trying to bring her down; but she does everything she can to stay strong for Jim. I ask that all our wonderful prayer warriors keep both of them in your heart, in your thoughts and especially in your prayers. I know how much all the prayers and thoughts from around the world kept me and my Dan'l going through his battle with cancer and they will forever be one of my most treasured possessions. Dear Lord, I lift up Jim and Tammy to You. Let them feel Your love and grace as they walk through this valley. Be with them and continue to give them the strength to do battle with these horrible diseases that they both have. Give wisdom to the doctors who treat them and comfort them on those days that seem so impossible to get through. Surround them with Your people who will help share their burden and let them know that they are never alone. More than anything Lord, hold them in Your faithful, loving arms and help them to keep their focus on You. When there is anxiety, give them peace. When they are fearful or frustrated remind them that You are in control. Use all they are going through to grow closer to each other and most especially closer to You. I ask this in Jesus' Name. Amen. hugs, love and prayers to both of you, Sue Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
