Let's Come Together

Dear friends,

I have requested prayer before and am always blessed by the response. Today, I am asking special prayer on behalf of a dear friend I went to college with, Sandy.

Sandy is without a doubt, the strongest person I've ever met. For the last several years, she has battled many different complications as a result of Lupus. Recently, they discovered a mass in her neck and foot, and were testing like crazy to try and figure out what it was. And they couldn't. Finally, they gave her a diagnosis. This is from her blog:

 "I have Stage IV Melanoma. It has spread to my foot, my liver, my lymph nodes, and yet they still aren't exactly sure where it started. Here is the information you're thinking you should google: The 5 Year Average Survival Rate is only 3%, and the Average Time You Have Left (I bet there is a technical term for that, but time you have left gets the point across) is only 4 months."

Sandy is a wife and mother of two beautiful kids. She is strong and determined to be in that 3%, and I believe that the power of prayer will help make that happen! If you believe in prayer, please send a special prayer on behalf of Sandy today. Thank you. And check out her blog to learn more:
