Default Mom has cancer and may only have 15 days left

Hello all - new member here!

I am requesting prayer from all my fellow prayer warriors: PLEASE pray for Judy (my mom)!

My immediate family is in the Christian faith and we have seen the Lord's hand perform many miracles even within our own family.

A few quick prayer reports to get your faith stirred:

When my grandmother was pregnant with my mom the doctors and nurses suggested to her to have an abortion because the baby was going to be born with Spina Bifida. They had told her the child was going to go through a lot of pain even just growing up and had given her a "lifespan estimate" of under 30 years.

My grandmother refused and sure enough my mom was born with Spina Bifida. She suffered for years with pain where she could barely stand and had a lot of walking problems throughout her childhood. Not really able to do much without having to sit on the sidelines a lot and watching everyone else.

Around age 22 my mom came to Christ and fed up with her pain, cried out to God and had those around her in her church pray for her. That night changed everything for her - she was healed entirely of her pain, walking issues, and has more than doubled her "lifespan estimate", now being 64.

My parents wanted to have children and every baby delivery doctor she went to suggested against her having children, not only for her own health reasons but because her children are extremely likely to suffer from spina bifida as well. She found a Christian doctor who told her if she believes God wants her to have children, to pray, and do so. I have three older siblings and all four of us have absolutely no health problems whatsoever.

My dad was born with epilepsy and suffered from seizures throughout his life from a young age. Him having a driver's license was ruled out early on and it was understood he would never drive. He was on heavy medications to keep his seizures under control and but still suffered a lot from them and side effects of the medication.

My father meets my mother and becomes a Christian. There was a service going on at their church and my dad was prayed for - and was healed immediately of his epilepsy. He felt different and went to his doctor (who is not a Christian and was very confused) and was given the clear to stop taking the medication. He has had no signs of ever having epilepsy and just retired from driving for a living for a trucking company of 38 years.

My uncle was having a lot of problems concentrating and was just overall not doing well. He went in for a lot of tests and they couldn't figure out what the problem was until finally they came to realize he had a tumor growing inside his skull on his brain. They informed him it was too big and too dangerous to operate on. He was given up to 6 months to live at the time.

Our family came together and prayed for him. After weeks of him constantly going back so they could monitor his tumor growing (and it was) - he goes in after all the prayer - the tumor vanished. Literally vanished. They had no words to say about it except, whatever he's doing to keep it up. Even though this happened he's not a believer - but he was definitely healed.

Prayer request:
In a very high amount of cases where someone comes down with lymphoma they're gone within a few years. Judy (my mom) had been told it was extremely likely she would be taken by the cancer within a maximum of 5 years - well, it's been 8. (Praise God!)

After so many different medications and different forms of chemo - none of them were working. She had been told if she's able to be healthy enough to recover - she's a candidate for stem cell replacement. This is an absolute last resort because it only works 40-50% of the time.

What they do is kill off all cancer cells with heavy doses of chemo over several days and then take a matched donor's cells and introduce them into her immune system and if her body doesn't react negatively and accepts the cells as her own - she begins to develop a brand new immune system. They know within 2 hours whether or not her body has accepted it. If it doesn't accept it, her body starts attacking itself and she's gone.

Praise God her one brother is a match for her and he is going to be there during the whole procedure as the donor, otherwise it would've taken months or longer to find a matched donor anywhere even remotely close.

Her body wasn't taking to any of the medication over the last 8 years but was told about a medication that was her very last resort and they held off all this time because of the side effects AND it only has a 30% success rate. Well, to their surprise - thank you Lord, it's working!

She is now booked to go in for August 3rd for heavy doses of chemo until August 8th, when they're doing the stem cell procedure.

As your sibling in Christ, I ask that you please pray that the procedure will be a success that she may continue to be a walking and talking miracle who always gives God the glory. Please pray for us, her husband, her children, her grand children, and the rest of our family that we do not fall off course but continue walking in Him regardless the outcome.

May God fulfill His will and not ours - that His master plan unfolds exactly as He desires even if this means He calls her home.

The Lord's hand has been at work throughout this entire ordeal and she has already beaten the odds so many times. She was healed of her pain that she was told she'd have for life, she's outlived the age by more than double what the doctors had predicted before she was born, she had four children who did not have any health problems passed down to them, she was given the very last resort medication that had a 30% success rate and it succeeded, she's outlived the average age with this form of cancer, and lastly, I would LOVE to come back to report that with God and your prayers, she now beat another 40% success rate AND recovered from the chemo.

Thank you for your time in reading this, those of you that have. Whether you pray for us or just simply skimmed through this - I'm praying for you that you may walk in Him for eternity and bear much fruit throughout your life walking in the Spirit.

God bless!
