"I could use all the prayers I can get right now. ;) " - Amy
This is what my sister texted to me last week upon getting some disappointing news from her neurologist.
My sister Amy has been dealing with brain cancer for many years. She was given another 3 month break after undergoing a year and a half of chemo. She had her brain scan last week to evaluate the tumor and in Amy's words it's "not good". The tumor has grown considerably in those 3 months, faster than ever before. She will be seeing the specialist in NYC asap for further evaluation. Any and all prayers and healing thoughts are welcomed ;) It really does mean a lot to Amy! Thank you xo
