Praying for Meme

We have a 21 year old in our church that has been battling ovarian cancer now for almost four years. Her bright smile and sweet spirit would almost lead you to believe she is not sick most of the time. But the last few weeks have been extremely tough. They found out this fourth round of chemo is not having the results the doctors had hoped and she is in a lot of pain.

We watched our cat Banjo struggling with an abscess last night that had been drained. He was still trying to get over the effects of sedation and just wouldn't settle down. I started to tear up thinking about Meme's parents. How totally helpless you must feel watching your child in pain. So yes Meme needs our prayers....but I won't forget Sharon and David either.

This link was set up by her cousin and tells you more about her. Go Postal and I will be going to Zip Line on Sunday Sep 29th for a fundraiser for her at Sanders Ridge in Boonville.

And I will be getting my toenails painted teal in her honor. September is teal toes month for ovarian cancer awareness.

So come on my praying me lift up Meme and her family for strength during this battle!

I am praying for Meme and her family, what a long battle she has endured. One of my Thursday evening students knows her and the family, the prayer net has been spread a little bit wider; praying for strength, support and God's healing touch.
