Prayer request...

One of my teachers and dance sisters in California has a really nasty stage 4 cancer - pancreatic - that is "holding" for now with chemo/radiation, but she also had a brain tumor (benign) that had to be removed and they've found another one behind her sinuses.

Her name is Didi.

Any, and all prayers, rituals, well wishes, candles, incense, naked dances by moonlight (*very* appropriate for this gal!), 21 gun salutes, etc. would be very much appreciated by her, and would be considered a personal favor by myself. If anyone feels so inclined, her friend started a go fund me page - PM me for the address, I don't feel its right to post it here.

You could NOT ask for a nicer person than Didi - this completely SUCKS. I'm really NOT wanting to fly back to California for any reason, much less a funeral...

    Thanx guys, it means a lot to both her and I. I yakked at her on the blower about an hour ago. The second brain tumor behind her sinuses is coming out in 4 weeks, but is benign, thank Goddess. Its affecting her vision, pressing on her optic nerve.

    I told her a bunch of southern rednecks were pulling for her!

    Prayed. This will be a tough one for your friend so the more prayers the better. This does suck, no matter who it happened to. I hold your friend Didi up to God in prayer that he may give her a miraculous healing.  BTW having said all this, Red Necks are some powerful prayer warriors so she's in good hands here.

    Sorry to hear that, my friend!! Many prayers sent, bon fires lit, and searching for chipmunks!!

    Resurrecting this thread - long story of course, but the short version is that its now metastasized to both her liver and her spine. Radiation is ongoing, but she, I, and everybody else knows where this is going.
    All prayers, etc, etc appreciated.
    The suckage is just increasing...
