Prayer Request [edited]

Please pray for Alana (who blogs at Morning Coffee), her husband, Wes, and her children. They have received the devastating news that Wes has glioblastoma, the most aggressive form of brain tumor. Consider adding them to your parish's prayer lists and ask for prayers at the monasteries you visit as well. (Alana's Orthodox name is Juliana and her husband's is Theophan.)

[Edited to add: The family has set up a gofundme site to help defray the medical expenses. Please consider giving just a little bit if you are able. This is a very worthy cause and a good way to give alms during this season of Advent.]

  1. And oddly yesterday I just read in the Nov. Good Housekeeping(page 95) about someone who had this same tumor and received an experimental treatment(which does look like is closed for now)and has been cancer free for 4 years.The doctor is Beham Badie at the Brain Tumor Program at City of Hope in Duarte CA.Perhaps,no make that always worth contacting to check it out. It is always surprising that there seems to be no system with these kinds of diagnoses to find everything out there-but there really isn't.
